Learman, who joined the independent agency last year from Adam & Eve/DDB is leaving at the end of the year as Fold7 restructures its creative department.

Ryan Newey, Fold7’s founder and chief creative officer, has hired new people who are joining in the New Year.

He said: "After two years, Simon and I have decided to part company. I'd like to thank him for his passion, wisdom and contribution to the Fold".

Learman was previously international creative director at Adam & Eve/DDB and worked on the Omnicom agency’s global Unilever business.

At Fold7 he contributed to this year’s major rebrand campaign for Carlsberg, which were creatively directed by Newey and included launch ads starring Mads Mikkelsen.
