My name is George and I’m an Art Director at Colenso BBDO. I enjoy telling stories and making things that help solve problems. I’ve helped light up a bridge, I’ve made an app that lets people find dumplings, I’ve launched a face mask, and an energy drink, I’ve tried to show the world how scary washing dishes is, I’ve animated a mans belly button to warn people about Brexit, and I’ve met Michael Jordan.
