What people think about me?

Eugene CheongChief Creative Officer at DDB Asia and former Chief Creative Officer at Ogilvy Asia Pacific

Jon’s creative output is nothing short of astonishing. You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.

Tseliso RangakaChief Creative Officer - FCB Johannesburg

Great conceptual thinker, team player, willingness to learn & a passion for seeing ideas through.

João BragaChief Creative Officer – Wunderman Thompson Australia

Sharp writer, mature criteria, relentless creative. Hire him fast, or he ‘ll hire you.

Nkanyezi MasangoExecutive Creative Director - The King James Group

Jonathan Ollivier is a fighter. He fought to get to Cape Town and he fought for great ideas. I strongly recommend you give him an opportunity. If not, he will probably fight for it.

Prabashan Gopalakrishnan PatherFormer Creative Director - Ogilvy Cape Town

His ability to see the big picture and not get bogged down in the details is quite advanced for his relatively young age. He works exceptionally hard, never giving up until what is needed to be done is done. It was sad to lose him as he really added to the culture of our creative studio. I would re-hire Jonathan in a heartbeat.
