Big Spaceship has hired Chris Huban as executive creative director. Hailing from Spotify Advertising where he served as the global design lead, Huban will be responsible for envisioning product and brand experiences at Big Spaceship. Huban is based in New York and will report to Cedric Devitt, CCO. 

With almost 20 years of experience in the industry, Huban’s contributions have led to work recognized by D&AD, the Webby’s, Awwwards, CSS Design and the FWA. At Spotify Advertising, he was the global design lead on Wrapped for Advertising 2020, the redesign of ads.spotify.com, Culture Next Reports Volumes 2 & 3, and Outside Voices Seasons 1 & 2. Prior to his tenure at Spotify, Huban spent a decade at Huge where he served as creative director on accounts including Ralph Lauren Polo App, Thomson Reuters, NYU Langone, Comcast and Lowe’s. 

“Design can propel people, brands, businesses, and society forward,” said Huban. “To do this, we must consider who we design for, placing people at the forefront of our thinking. Then we can better envision and build products, services, and more meaningful experiences that delight us, connect us, support us, give us agency and drive us to take action. My role will be 50% focused on managing our work and 100% focused on mentoring our people. My goal is to create a product-focused vision that we can all believe in as a team and establish a structure that allows that vision to thrive in the work that we do.
