Buz joins Hyper Island in New York

We're stepping up our stateside presence with the help of a new adviser, former head of Wieden + Kennedy, New York, Buz Sawyer. Mr. Sawyer has joined Hyper Island to lead its U.S. expansion strategy after leaving his post as managing director of Wieden + Kennedy in April.

"My job is to figure out strategies for them to grow, both short and long term." Read the full article here

This is an interesting new development for those in the U.S. market that are seeking alternatives to the more typical training opportunities.

We welcome the launch of Hyper Island in New York City, and will look for updates regarding upcoming classes.
