Artists of the Industry Appoints VP of Interactive

Chicago Based Digital Content Agency Expands Team to Los Angeles With New VP and Office.

Chicago: Los Angeles based Spencer Stuard will be joining Artists of the Industry as VP of Interactive. This new division is to be the Los Angeles arm of the company and will help build cutting-edge interactive products for industry-leading businesses.  Formerly of Disney, Stuard has helped to design top-grossing mobile applications and award-winning console and VR titles making him a great fit to lead Artists of the Industry’s diverse interactive projects.

Spencer was behind the two most recent interactive projects for Artists of the Industry. Both of which were demanding and required a vast understanding of new and emerging technologies.  He first led the effort to create Artists of the Industry’s first Virtual Tour Experience (VTX) which ambitiously set out to virtually map one of Atlanta’s largest downtown hotels and deliver the experience to desktops, tablets, and online. His second project was an interactive self-guided virtual reality experience that educated United Airlines senior management at their yearly leadership conference.

With Artists of the Industry, Stuard is looking to apply his entertainment background and expertise to build cutting-edge applications and experiences for new industries. Moving forward Artists of the Industry looks to have Stuard build a multi-disciplined team of designers, engineers, artists, and product managers to tackle the wide range of interactive needs across multiple industries. We welcome Stuard and are thrilled with the new projects soon to come.
