ORCA appoints new NED, Brian Mansfield

A New Year brings an exciting new addition to our growing team! ORCA are proud to announce the appointment of the talented Brian Mansfield as Non-Executive Director.

Brian’s brand agency experience spans more than 15 years (having come from client-side and consultancy prior to this), including most recently holding positions as Chairman, and before that Managing Director, of Bristol’s finest, Taxi Studio, where he helped them develop into the award winning, fearless, creative behemoth they are today.

Brian was also voted onto the Board of the influential Design Business Association (DBA) in 2016, to provide governance, strategy and direction to both Board and membership. He has also led agencies internationally, as MD of Blue Marlin in Australia between 2006-2008.

Throughout his career Brian has advised some of the world’s biggest businesses on how to build their brands including BT, Carlsberg, Coca-Cola, Diageo, Orange, Nestlé and Unilever and has also supported a large number of start-ups and SW creative agencies to shine more brightly and have a greater clarity of purpose and direction.

Of joining ORCA Brian said:

“I’m delighted to be supporting this fast-growing creative studio and bringing my strategic, leadership and business experience to mentor the Founders, Joel and James, and to ensure that their very special culture remains protected while the business reaches its potential over the coming years.”

We hope that by making this concerted effort to learn, develop and grow we will in turn continue to improve our product and our service, ensuring our clients continue to receive creative solutions which push the boundaries of brand design and digital communication.
