My name is Benoit Ollive, I am curently working full-time art director at VCCP Berlin. Born in the south of France, since my childhood I am highly passionated by design, handmade and digital typography, youth trends and social platforms, photography, spacial design and arts. I really enjoy to contribute to a company for which I can use my creativity as an answer to client challenges. I have always pushed myself very hard to create work that is unique, explores mixed media, question the principles of design and connects people through narrative. While creative-minded and highly-motivated, I am also efficient, focussed on quality and execution. These traits have given me the opportunity to work in France, England, Germany and Asia, with creatives from advertising, product designers, architects, film directors and art galleries. In roles including art director, designer, both artist and curator, over the past 7 years.
