Ian Garrick Mason is an independent filmmaker, photographer, and essayist. He has produced short documentaries on topics including film making, resume "whitening", blockchain and finance, intelligent cities, and urban planning philosophies (a piece which was featured by Canadian Architect). He is a contributing editor at Barcelona-based urbanNext, and as a freelance journalist he has written on politics and culture for publications like The Boston Globe, The Times Literary Supplement, The Walrus, and The New Statesman.
With his documentaries, photographs, and essays, his aim is to provoke fresh thinking about complex issues.
Ian is the founding editor of SCOPE, a global magazine of ideas, culture, and emerging talent, and managing director of Hassard Fay, a firm that helps professional services firms, large enterprises, and non-profits develop thought leadership strategies and the creative content to execute them (through videos, infographics, interactive data visualizations, white papers, and other formats). He is also a graphic designer, digital artist and animator, and even, sometimes, a wielder of charcoal and pencil.
