“Working with Ivan is similar to opening a Swiss army knife when you're a kid - you know it's going to be good, and the tenacity of the tools packed inside always surprises you. Ivan has always delivered strong conceptual work and adds value to the projects we have worked on. As a creative, I find Ivan's enthusiasm and energy hugely inspirational. Coupled with his well-read background, interest in technology and current affairs he aways has plenty to offer and plenty material to draw from.”

“Outstanding "ideas man", that truly sees things from an objective, insightful and beautiful angle. His ideas are innovative and executable. He understands the bottom-line (ROI) effect of his ideas. He is a rare maestro of the written word.”

“It is unusual to write about a person without being tempted to add a little white lie. In Ivan's case, however, it is a joy to write the truth about somebody who is not only an exceptionally talented writer but someone who is at the forefront of the (seemingly) undiscovered media of our industry. You want radical thought, look no further.”

“Ivan is the complete creative professional. It feels like he is connected with the whole universe and fetching interesting bits from everywhere in there to make very interesting connections.”

Hello. I like solving problems with words, ideas, plans and other people. I believe in the power of a fistful of markers, a blank whiteboard and a fast web connection. I like jumping out of planes. I love meeting new people.  Qualifications Red & Yellow School of Logic & Magic Diploma in Copywriting for Advertising and Communications Experience Deputy CD – The Young Designers Emporium Dec 02 – Nov 04 Copywriter – Kastner & Partners Network Dec 04 – Aug 05 Copywriter – The Jupiter Drawing Room Aug 05 – Jan 07 Copywriter – Claydon Heeley May 07 – Mar 08 Associate Creative Director - Wieden+Kennedy Delhi Jan 09 - May 09
