Oliver Bothwell

I am a design director, interested in how design can be used to communicate and inform efficiently and simply. I am self-motivated, flexible and thrive on the pressure from working on demanding projects. I enjoy working with people with different skill sets as I find this often gives the opportunity to develop the most interesting solutions. Throughout my career I have worked in both big and small teams, across many disciplines but what drives me is the opportunity to use design / design thinking to solve problems.

I have nine years’ experience working with identity, editorial, exhibition, digital and interactive design. I hold a BA (Hons.) First Class in Graphic & Media Design from the London College of Communication. I’ve worked at The Times, where I helped to design an iPad app for their science magazine, Eureka; at North where I worked on a number of identity projects including The Photographers’ Gallery, Marlborough Contemporary and the Fourth Floor Corner Shop. More recently I’ve freelanced with Mark Porter, formerly art director at The Guardian, on various editorial and digital projects, including RTL. I also have experience working at The Guardian; Base Design, in Brussels; Pentagram in New York; and The Telegraph. I am currently based in London and I am working for Tortoise.
