Oliver is the “design” rock of the agency and responsible for the majority of the beautiful print and web design work that we deliver for our clients. As with all great designers Oliver is classically trained and learnt his craft by starting out in typography and layout, where he first began to develop his meticulous eye for detail. He then continued to hone his passion for creativity through a number of different agencies where his design skills came to the fore. One of Oliver’s finest qualities is his ability to understand and interpret any brief intelligently, which he continues to do on a regular basis!
