With a unique talent for weaving stylized visuals in rhythmic pattern with captivating sound, William Town thrives on close creative partnerships that challenge the discipline to create unexpected, stand-out work. With celebrated projects for top brands including Vogue, Dior, NIKE, Hugo Boss, Zara and Tommy Hilfiger, he has consistently crafted work that is at the forefront of fashion, music and image-making. From Calvin Klein’s CK ONE relaunch campaign in 2011 to Vogue’s ‘I Love New York’ Film in 2021, his campaigns are consistently recognized with award nominations and wins.
Influenced by his own film-making experiments during the renaissance of music videos, and his professional roots working among some of the world’s top fashion photographers, Town began his career at the Paris office of Art Partner. Working his way from Intern to Assistant Producer, he honed his craft and his sphere of creative reference. He made the move to NYC, joining esteemed luxury fashion advertising agency Baron & Baron, where he spent six years under the creative mentorship of Fabien Baron. He rose through the ranks to create, and head, the in-house film department, where he was part of a full slate of creative projects from conception through to final delivery.
He made the leap in 2014 to launch Modern Post, growing the company over the last nine years from a boutique shop to a full post-production studio, with a diverse team of talent, who collectively work to deliver polished work with a perspective that is as rigorous as it is daring.
