Olly Willans

Creative Director
 
   
Olly is a Founder Director and the Creative Director at Torchbox. His job is to help our clients achieve fantastic things online.

He is ultimately responsible for the design, digital strategy, user experience, and information architecture work at Torchbox. Along with Tom, Olly also fulfills the role of MD at Torchbox.

Olly has led our teams creating award-winning sites and campaigns for some of the most 'digital' organisations in the development, health and education sectors including WWF, the Nuffield Trust and Oxford University. Olly tries to ensure that Torchbox doesn't just meet expectations in our projects, but exceed them. And, after fifteen years, Olly is just as excited about the Internet's potential as a force for social good as he was in the first dot com days.

Away from work Olly is a married dad of three. He has just completed Trailwalker, enjoys sports (skiing, tennis, cricket, squash), and is now dabbling with am-dram! He is also the worst sort of Manchester United supporter.

Olly is an occasional speaker, awards judge, and a Non-Executive Director of the Irish charity Valid Nutrition.
