Simon Holliday

Hello. I'm Simon Holliday.

about me »

I live in Bristol, UK, where I make photographs, work as Head of Development at Coull, and by night, fight crime from my base deep in the city's sewer system.

After studying Philosophy at Bristol University, I worked at Vision Interactive in Bristol, and then spent three years at DDB London. I am a founder member of Nameless Media Group, and a partner at Double Shock Recordings.

Over the years I have been privileged to produce work for some great individuals and businesses, such as Allied Domecq, BBC, Derren Brown, Future Publishing, The Guardian, Hat Trick Productions, Lloyds TSB, Morgan Stanley, NHS, Objective Productions, Smirnoff, Sony, Tesco, and Volkswagen.

I keep a blog of interesting stuff that I find.

According to last.fm, I have recently been listening to Cheatahs, Eagulls, Queens Of The Stone Age, Spoon, Boards Of Canada, Plump DJs and Eagles Of Death Metal.
