In a restructure and bolstering of the studio’s creative offering, several new appointments have been made including the hire of Bradon Webb and promotion of Adam Carrol,  Udesh Chetty, and Donnie Bauer to the role of Creative Director.


To support our broad range of creative services, the senior creative team will work closely to ensure the growth and development of their respective department as well as have oversight over the studio’s creative output as a whole.


Bradon Webb joins The Mill from Leviathan to lead our Experience offering in Chicago, ensuring the continued research and development into new creative opportunities that employ emerging technologies. Bradon’s cross-disciplinary work happens at the intersection of art and technology. He specializes in finding innovative and engaging solutions for agencies and brands to reach their audiences and tell their stories, across multiple formats.


Donnie Bauer, a celebrated and awarded expert in animation, has been promoted to lead our dynamic Chicago design team. Donnie’s focus will lie in exploring design-led creative opportunities for clients, working closely with the Mill Experience and VFX teams to push digital boundaries.


As industry focus shifts from shoot-based creative to digital storytelling techniques, established 2D Leads and VFX Supervisors Adam Carroll and Udesh Chetty will continue to champion our visual effects capabilities, leading the team to create the extraordinary through world-class visual effects.


Managing Director of The Mill in Chicago Erica Hilbert comments, “With this strong creative team at the helm, we hope to continue to guide the Midwest creative market – even through this difficult and uncertain time – providing a range of digital creative solutions to ensure agencies, brands and our production partners can continue to tell great stories and get work made.”
