He crafts powerful, individual brands for our artists and his amazing eye, great taste, and original ideas translate musical energy into visual style. He is the master of creating an impactful, captivating aesthetic that extends across everything we do at WBR – from album art and videos to the amazing new environment we’re experiencing every day. I’m delighted to announce this richly deserved promotion.”
Wonderly said: “Since its earliest days, WBR has embraced a unique, irreverent, out-of-the-box creative sensibility that has permeated the label’s culture. Long before I joined this amazing company, I was a huge fan of the label’s visual approach and language, and it’s a privilege to be tasked with taking it into the future. There’s a fantastic energy running through the company, from our new leadership to our new space and, of course, our incredible artists. I want to thank Tom and Aaron for this wonderful opportunity.”
