According to a statement from the agency, Davis made the decision to “focus on creativity and innovation in a wider business context”. Davis was not available for further comment at press time.
In the official statement, Davis called Publicis Mojo “a formidable creative company with great clients and wonderful people”, but added that he was “passionate about applying design thinking and creativity to some new challenges”.
