From creative concepts and fully integrated campaigns, to TV, radio, stunts, social and more, everything I do centres on a
big idea, because that's what gets results.
(plus, it feels pretty good to make work that works.)
Need the 'whens' and the 'wheres'?
Hey there. I'm Olivia.
OD by name. Odder story to boot.
I used to be a comedian, and taught comedy in Paris.
I've also been a professional bra fitter, and even an account handler (for my sins).
These days, I spend my days thinking up thoughts for brands, and was once one of the top women under 30 in the world at it.
I've been listed as a 'one to watch' in Campaign Magazine's list of 30 Future Leaders, and have judged Writing For Advertising for the D&AD Awards 2021: one of the youngest women ever to give out pencils for the world's best writing. You could say it was meant 2B.
I'm pretty competitive outside of work too, winning an intensive 3-month creative competition, School of Thought UK, which took me off to Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. To this day, I can't even look at a glass of rosé.
In my day to day, you'll find me smithing words and directing concepts as Associate Creative Director for Uniform Group (previously at TBWA\MCR). But I'm also passionate about giving back to the industry at large. I've founded and run an event for 5 years to promote young creative women in our industry - CIA: Chicks in Advertising, in both Manchester and Leeds. I'm also a guest lecturer of Creative Advertising BA (Hons) students at LAU and University of Central Lancashire: in 2018, three of my students won D&AD New Blood pencils, including a yellow pencil for copywriting. In honour of my extra-curricular striving for a more equal creative community, I was awarded an Honorary Master of the Arts from Leeds Arts University - officially recognising me as a jack of all trades, and a master of at least one.
So, if you're looking for an experienced conceptual creative that can give you award-winning headlines and punchlines, killer concepts and supportive underwear, you've come to the right face.
