Ollie Olanipekun is a multi-disciplinary creative, founder and Creative Director of award-winning agency Futurimpose and co-founder of the bird watching collective, Flock Together. Pioneering meaningful ways to enact change and rethink narratives, Ollie builds social responsibility into every facet of his work.
In 2020, together with Nadeem Perera, he co-founded Flock Together, a birdwatching collective which encourages people of colour to get out and enjoy nature, support each other and look after their mental health. Since its inception, Flock Together has been fundamental in the rise of the new outdoors movement. Ollie’s groundbreaking work in this space has led him into ambassadorial roles at RSPB as well as WWT. In 2022 his co-authored book Outsiders (Octopus Publishing) was published. Part memoir, part manifesto Outsiders is a call-to-action for us all to reconnect to our natural environment.

Empowering individuals and communities throughout his career, Ollie is committed to supporting this audience as well as building smoother pathways into the creative industries for the next generation of ‘non-traditional’ creatives.
