Usually when people are diligent, sensitive, tireless perfectionists they are also a little unbearable. Not so Richard Oliver, the nicest man in the world. He’s combined all his sickening talent and charm to become one of the UK’s top commercial directors, working with some of the world’s most prestigious brands, from Chivas Regal to Land Rover. Hugely experienced with a distinctive, graphic visual style and an impeccable ear for sound-design, he also brings his own unique brand of humour and sensitivity to performance resulting in some of the most beautifully crafted and funny commercials around today. Most recently he’s produced some stunning work for the likes of Mercedes Benz, Umbro, Toyota and Visit Scotland. As if that wasn’t enough he also has a pet cat called Sparkle.
