About the Creative Team

The creative team at Whitespace is made up of an eclectic mix of folk with a multitude of creative skills from designers, art directors, creative copywriters, interaction designers, creative developers, illustrators and even an FPV drone pilot!

We collaborate and work closely with the wider and incredibly talented dentsu UK creative teams based in London, Manchester and beyond. One day you might be working on a social campaign for a local client, the next day a Global level mega brand. You will be working with teams in Edinburgh one day, the next day you will be working with legendary creative talent in London, New York or further afield. You will get exposure to the best in the business.

Everyone in the team has a passion to make the best work of their lives. We never settle and are driven to do better work. We all agree that great work makes a great culture. We understand this and dedicate ourselves to our ideas and our craft whether that is a more traditional campaign to delving into the Metaverse. What makes it really exciting is that we can make our ideas a reality, no matter how new, or seemingly impossible it might seem. We have access to the best creative technologist, producers, editors, developers, and partners going. You are only limited by your own imagination.
