I’m Ola Syse, a Swedish born creative who lives in Amsterdam.
When north of the wall became too dark, I sought refugee in the rainy Amsterdam. When I’m not working you can find me on a blue bike going from plant shop to plant shop…because you can never have too many plants.
After graduating from Hyper Island I’ve worked many years in the industry in different roles. 3D design, animation, interactive design and in the recent years as a conceptual Art Director. With a technical and animation background I’m as strong in interactive as is in storytelling. (buzz-word check).
My passion lies in lifestyle brands and technology. I always strive to bring cultural insights in my process to create the relevant and talk-able creative work. Next to work I’m always looking for ways to express that passion. For example I’m in the process of founding a "creative football team” in Amsterdam sponsored by Nike. Look out for Mokum FC launching soon, a team filled with creative directors, street style ambassadors , photographers and other creative people from the Amsterdam scene. The idea is to united us under the passion of football, but also to do creative side projects together. Our first project launching soon is a documentary about street football in Amsterdam.
