Another member added to the ever-expanding TDL brood! Meet Ollie, who joins us from working in-house at a strategy consulting firm.

Over the last 10 years, Ollie has worked at design agencies, both in-house and as a freelancer. He has steered his career towards working for environmental causes – something he cares deeply about. Read more about him below:

What made you want to work at TDL?

I love simplifying complex information, something that TDL excel at.


If you weren’t a designer, what would you want to do?

I’d be a gardener!


If you had to frame one piece of graphic design what would it be?

The 90’s surfers against sewage logo. Love both the logo and the cause.

What is one piece of work you’ve done that you’re really proud of?

I designed a magazine called Pioneers Post, a look into the world of social enterprises. It was great to work with an editor, having creative freedom end to end.


What’s your “party trick”?

I’ve been known to eat a banana at random times.


You’re having a TV marathon this weekend. Which box set would you choose and which snacks would you provide?

I’ve never done a TV marathon! If something is beyond 2 hours, I really have to weigh up if it’s worth it. Olives, crackers and cheese would be my snack of choice.


Who would be your dream client and why?

I’d love to work with Greenpeace to create a campaign on climate awareness.


How do you embody the TDL team values? (creative & innovative, enthusiastic team, responsive & reliable)

Creative & innovative: I’m always questioning is there a more effective way to do things.

Enthusiastic team: I’m keen to learn from others and pass on knowledge where I can.

Responsive & reliable: I’m a safe pair of hands at crunch point.


What are three things you’d love to learn this year?

  1. What makes a killer infographic.
  2. Understanding of service design.
  3. How to unicycle.


You’re organising the TDL Christmas party – where do you send us?

A cosy cabin in the Austrian alps. Apple strudel and gluhwein.

Think about your job role at TDL – which animal best represents you at work and why?

An owl – observant, curious and attentive.
