Fearless Faces

Great people make great work. But it’s not just about recruiting the finest people around, it’s about keeping them and that’s where our mojo comes in. It’s hard to pin down exactly what our mojo ‘is’ because it’s lots of things. It’s embracing diversity, nurturing talent, mucking in and making Taxi Studio a special place to be. But most of all ... it’s about loving coming to work every day.

The Team

Executive Creative Director

Glenn Tutssel FRSA

Put simply, Glenn is a bona fide creative legend – a master craftsman and pioneering visionary who’s been busy shaping the world’s biggest brands for nearly 50 years.

In that time he's inspired a generation or three – mentoring the minds of world-class creative practitioners Bruce Duckworth of Turner Duckworth, Garrick Hamm of Williams Murray Hamm, Jonathan Ford of Pearlfisher, Mark Girvan of Buddy and film director Daniel Barber (to name-drop but a few).

Graduating with first-class honours from the London College of Printing in 1973, Glenn began his career at Lock Petterson, where he bagged himself several D&AD awards designing for the likes of of BP, Esso, Rank Xerox, Shell and Union Carbide.

In 1983 he joined the packaging and corporate identity company Michael Peters as creative director, devising brilliant work for the likes of Alliance & Leicester, Guinness and the V&A. 

Glenn went on to co-found The Brand Union in 1992, merging with its sister company Lambie Nairn to create a unique offer of branding on- and off-screen for the BBC, Powergen and S4C.

With four D&AD Yellow Pencils and a raft of global awards to his name, Glenn has long been a fixture on the international award and speaker circuit. Today he judges D&AD, Cannes Lions and the Walpole Luxury Awards. 

Having served on the D&AD executive committee for four years, he also sits on the Royal Mail Stamp Advisory Committee, is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and mentors the creative team here at Taxi Studio, with a mandate to enhance our fearlessly creative work.

(Oh, and he’s also a thoroughly nice bloke.)
