We are delighted to welcome Ian Cowell to our organisation as our Office Profile Creative Director. 

 Ian is an experienced Creative Designer and Director with over 30 years industry experience both in the UK and internationally. He is an ambassador for good design and has developed a strong understanding of how culture affects design and construction, quality, budgets and logistics.  

His passion for design and extensive experience helps to build strong relationships with clients, ensuring that their requirements are interpreted into a strong design brief that meets their needs while going above and beyond their expectations.  

Experience of leading the strategic planning, workplace consultancy and interior design as well as technical aspects of projects’ delivery. Ian puts a strong emphasis on quality and value, as well as liaison with clients and contractors. 

He begins by immersing himself to fully understand a business’s objectives and company culture, taking our clients on a fun and collaborative journey. He strongly believes that workplace consultancy is key to creating inspiring spaces for today’s evolving office environments.  

Ian’s previous experience included creating a team of ‘workplace experts’ not just designers to raise the bar in FFE design and offer workplace solutions not just office fit-out. He leads and mentors a strong team of designers at Office Profile which are all more than capable technically, aesthetically and commercially to deliver design briefs. 

Focused on our future, Ian was Sustainability Champion for Tetris UK and played a wider part in the JLL “Building For Tomorrow” campaign. He has expertise in sustainable alternatives for furniture and materials that can create working environments that not only deliver aesthetically but also functionally. Ian currently sits on Eightspace’s sustainability sub-committee.
