Colin Macgadie

Creative Director

London, United Kingdom
I am Creative Director at BDG architecture + design, following a rewarding seven years at Spacelab that concluded with the successful pitch for the London HQ of a leading Advertising Agency, which I lead as Strategic Director. Previous to this I worked as an interior designer for five years at Thinking Space Ltd. I am used to working with clients from the initial stages of research and clarification of brief, right through to the choice of materials and finishing of details, ensuring that every aspect of the final design reflects what the organisation does, and what it needs – both now and in the future. I have a proven track record working on complex projects, leading project teams in the development and design of a number of large workspaces for well known publishing, media and advertising agencies.
