About me

Oli has a rich heritage of creating commercials, websites, apps, films and brand identities across all platforms for iconic global clients and brands. He graduated with a BSC & MA and went on to study design and animation starting out in Bristol and Bath at a raft of digital hot shops and big hitting creative agencies. Along the way he’s animated for the Mr Men TV series, published illustrations and created Google’s first television ad in the UK. He moved to London 15 years ago and was promptly snapped up as a Senior Art Director by BBH. During this time, Oli built up a strong track record as a highly immersed and astute digital creative, helping to turn great ideas and creative vision into brilliantly crafted award winning work. His west country piratical twang has worn thin but he’s cultivated a hairstyle to rival Kurt Russell. He’s created famous work for the likes of Ray-Ban, Levi's, Burberry, Audi, ASOS, Google, Johnnie Walker, Pirelli and Rolls Royce. Oli’s accolades include 4 D&AD Pencils including a first for digital and mobile, a Gold Cannes Cyber Lion, plus numerous awards at BTAA, One Show, London International Awards, Campaign Big and FWA. Oli recently cofounded made by blah™ - an independent creative and design agency.
