Practice Director at Re, M&C Saatchi Group

I help high-growth businesses use design to scale smartly at speed.

Guiding a team of designers, strategists, and copywriters to make two key things for ambitious founders with ambitious growth plans; 1. A compelling story that captures the who, what, why and so what 2. A flexible system to bring those stories to life through signature brand experiences

We design to connect everything and everyone from C-Suite to shop floor, and build brands that last and make a meaningful difference.

Career & Background

What inspired you to do what you are doing now?

I love tech, I love branding, and I’m fascinated by people. In my role as practice director, I get to work with all three.

What drives and inspires you

What are your core values?

  • Growth
  • Optimism
  • Teamwork
  • Understanding

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Probably going to have to go with Ije Nwokorie. As a West African in the creative industry, he stood out greatly as the CEO of Wolff Olins, a global brand agency. Humble, honest and tremendously hardworking, he set the benchmark for doing great work and being great with people – traits that often seem binary in our industry.
