New Appointments: Stefan Olivier joins HoneyKome as Creative Director

HoneyKome, the digital consultancy and creative arm of the Ole! Media Group, continues to attract top talent. Adding his own combination of strategic thought and artistic flair to the rapidly growing influence of this dynamic agency, is Stefan Olivier, who recently took up the post as Creative Director.

Olivier is no stranger to the realm of digital, with a career that has spanned 14 years including a stint at FoxP2 in Cape Town, and heading up the establishment of the Gloo Content Lab for Ogilvy in 2015 as well as rapidly progressing through the ranks of WPP’s Aqua Online.  Before that, the award-winning director worked with Vegas Kings, leaders in the online gaming and sports betting fields. One of his most recent projects won a bronze Loerie for TV/Cinema advertising under 30 seconds, and four Creative Circle awards from the Loeries Association – something he is looking to realise at HoneyKome, too.

“I love crafting concepts and problem solving for ambitious clients and agencies who want to push the boundaries. Honeykome and its interesting client base fit the bill admirably. I’m looking forward to exploring these opportunities with this young and vibrant agency,” commented Olivier, who has also put out a call for a senior art director to join him on his journey, due to the recent winning of several new accounts.

In his spare time, he is an avid photographer. A geek at heart, he still plays video games and flies drones whenever he gets the chance: some of this aerial talent, will make an appearance in client work soon.

Says Desere’ Orrill, Group CEO and MD of HoneyKome: “In the short time Stefan has been with us he has already contributed to our recent success in securing two new retainer accounts based on the power of the creative proposal in the pitch presentations. His calm, clever and considered approach is already winning fans on both sides of the boardroom table.”
