Olumide Osinoiki [Olumedia]

Statement

All my accolades and achievements can be credited to the grace of God, hard work, and support from my parents, my peers, my agency, my mentors, my tutors, and my beautiful fiancee. I'm extremely grateful for them all.

The collective effort has built the established freelance practice and reputable brand that is Olumedia. I have had the privilege of working with a number of notable clientele, including but not limited to: the Guardian, the BBC, Bristol Old Vic, Burges Salmon, Babbasa, UWE, Bristol Central Library, Rising Arts Agency, Nesta, Noisy Little Monkey and Darewin (Paris).

My short term goal is to further establish my freelance practice and enjoy the craft I'm so passionate about. Serving people and adding value are my top priorities in that respect.

Long term my ambition is to impact global culture and bring more wholesome entertainment into the mainstream.
