OLIVER MILLS Art Director, Designer. Unorthodox is the word. From my family background, to life experiences, to my thinking process. I seem to question almost everything in life, and I encourage others to do the same. There are a million answers to any one question, and I like that. Realising my passion for photography and design from an early age, I went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. Inspired by change, I aim to pursue a career in which I can make a difference to people’s thoughts and perceptions, through inquisition and enlightenment. Growing up just outside of London, and raised by a family of musicians, artists and entrepreneurs, my outlook on life has been skewed. I live for innovation, always looking to make something bigger, better, more impactful and most importantly, more meaningful. They say you can’t reinvent the wheel, I disagree.
