Samuel Dunn

Design Lead - Broadcast

London, United Kingdom
I am a motion designer with over 10 years experience in the broadcast television industry. I currently live and work in London, UK.

My experience working with a variety of industry leading broadcast companies and creative agencies around the world has resulted in an acute understanding and passion for branding; I value engagement over advertising. I relish the creative environment and fluidly switch between all the roles required to see a project through from start to finish.

I am currently the On-Air Design Lead at Discovery Creative London. I am responsible for Discovery Channel, Investigation Discovery, Discovery Science, Discovery Turbo, Discovery Shed, Home&Health.

Discovery Creative London is Discovery Communication's award winning in-house design agency responsible for Network and Channel Branding, Programme Promotions and Advertising Campaigns for the UK and Western Europe.
