“Identica has a rich history in 3D design and we are currently working on projects with some of Britain’s largest retailers. I believe we have an opportunity with the team we are building at Identica to do something special in this field I wanted to ensure 3D had the best personal leadership. And Giles is certainly that”.
Sam Stone, Creative Director at Identica, says: “Giles is a true 3D specialist who loves form, structure, product, environment and experience. He undoubtedly understands how brands can come to life within their environment and his retail knowledge will bring an exciting new dimension to our agency”.
Giles Hardy added “I’m particularly excited with the opportunity of developing another discipline within the Identica offer. It’s a great chance for us to create holistic 2D-3D experiences for our clients across a wide range of sectors. I thrive on the idea of scale, taking a brand or proposition or idea across many different formats”
