VR Creative Director

Angela Haddad


Angela Haddad is a VR Creative Director and artist based in Los Angeles. She is the creator of One Third Blue - a VR art studio creating marketing campaigns and fan-facing stories, serving brands in lifestyle, fashion, and beauty. One Third Blue productions begin with watercolor and brushes, and are animated for 360° VR. The concept was born out of the desire to maintain an authentic hand-painted artistic visual within a medium heavily saturated with 3D renders, while enhancing analog, 2D watercolor art & animation with an unexpected technology.

Angela’s portfolio includes Marie Claire, Lionsgate, LiveNation, AlJazeera, and more. She is one of ten global Microsoft Creator Council members for 3D & mixed reality products, a twice Oculus Launchpad Fellow, and has co-authored an IEEE op-ed. She has been featured at SXSW, in Buzzfeed, VRScout and UploadVR, and has spoken at SAG-AFTRA, UCLA Anderson, VRLA, NAB, and more.

Angela is a UC Berkeley alumna. Prior to One Third Blue, she worked across the spectrum of VR on animation and stereoscopic live action, leading projects in production, post-production, direction, and UI/UX design.
