Oli’s passion and eye for exceptional design and visual storytelling has been at the forefront of his career as Digital Creative Director at Brave.

Driven by his love for taking big ideas and turning them into crafted visual experiences and pieces of design, Oli has helped clients large and small, global and local to push beyond their own limitations and achieve exceptional creative presence in competitive markets. Excellent design should pivot brands and result in commercial success and Oli’s track record of achieving this for client’s is solid.

 

A born mentor who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, Oli has led and crafted the digital studio at Brave to grow it from its infancy 12 years ago, into one of their most profitable and fastest growing disciplines.
 
Oli consumes trends and is always ahead of the game in tech, allowing him to continually push clients to be one step in front of their competitors, spotting opportunities and creating work that redefines brands and businesses. 
 
Oli has hired, managed, mentored and nurtured countless creatives over the past 12 years many of whom have gone on to be London’s best in class. He is able to build trust and confidence in the boardroom, present to an audience of hundreds at conferences and motivate teams and individuals on the ground in the studio. He firmly believes that ego should never get in the way of excellent relationships and that design is essentially about human connection - about sharing a vision and showing people what is possible if they’re willing to dream big. Everything Oli touches looks beautiful, considered, progressive, looks like the future. 
 
His colleague and boss describes him as: “"Oli is a supremely talented creative leader, a natural, charismatic and persuasive presenter. He marries these qualities with his technological vision, and his pragmatism for the art of what is possible to create things others will probably want to copy 6 months from now."
