Andrew Dobbie, Director, MadeBrave, 35

Andrew Dobbie

Andrew Dobbie is a director of MadeBrave, an award-winning brand-led digital creative agency based in Glasgow.

Andrew started MadeBrave back in 2012 when he left his job in the middle of the recession as a Creative Director at another agency with just £1000 of personal cash in the bank and a newborn baby at home.

Four and a half years on, there is team of 25 people (and growing) and a client roster including the likes of Muller UK & Ireland, Sky, IBM and Beam Suntory, to name a few.

These days Andrew’s role involves taking a more objective look at the business and working with the Operations Director on financials, efficiencies, retaining and gaining clients and overseeing all creative output.

He also takes an active role in the marketing of MadeBrave® as a brand that is recognised as vibrant, creative, fun and forward thinking among staff, clients and partners.

He does this through regularly attending events for the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce where he is a Director, and TEDxGlasgow and Scottish EDGE of which MadeBrave is an Official Creative Partner.

He also contributes, as much time as possible to motivational speaking. Earlier this year, he was selected to visit Silicon Valley with the Cross Creative programme, which introduces Scottish Entrepreneurs to global tech giants, including Facebook, Twitter, Xamarin and Pixar.

MadeBrave® is an award-winning brand-led digital creative agency based in Glasgow. We uncover what makes companies, products and services unique and exciting, then develop brands, campaigns and experiences to promote them. Our services include branding, design, digital design and development, advertising, social media content creation and management, photography and video.

Most recently, the firmhas opened an office in London, taking a space in the capital’s Shoreditch to broaden the client roster throughout the UK. However, building the Scottish business community plays a massive part in our values, which is why they have partnered with the likes of TEDxGlasgow, Scottish EDGE, Kiltwalk and Pedal for Scotland, to name a few.
