Henry Cowling

Creative Director, Unit9

I think it’s really important to celebrate craftspeople in all fields because usually they are the ones locked up in a dark room somewhere working, rather than drinking cocktails at awards shows. And if they decided to up and leave our whole industry would be fucked.

Henry Cowling is a Creative Director at UNIT9, the innovative production agency he has helped become one of the world's most awarded creative companies. In 2013, Henry established UNIT9 VR, an industry-leading virtual reality and immersive content creator. He now explores the creative and UX possibilities of disruptive technology for UNIT9's global partner base.

Henry is President of the Digital Craft jury at Cannes Lions 2017. His work has been exhibited by the artist Banksy, profiled by The Economist and enjoyed by millions of internet denizens around the world (and even some real people).
