What I do

I find what sets you apart, then create compelling experiences which connect you to your audience, with a focus on visual storytelling through film and design.


Research and gathering: Documentary style-research techniques provides rich insights for setting a strategy and raw material for experiences such as campaigns.  

Brand strategy: Unearthing your brand’s unique, authentic qualities and the emotional connection your particular audience is seeking.

Story blueprints express your brand personality to kickstart creation in the form of moodboards, concepts, style guides or film treatments.


Creative direction of the entire design and production process to ensure that your signal remains clear, the core story undiluted.

Ways in which I 
can work with you:

  • help you create a brand strategy and narrative.
  • undertake brand research and investigation to gain insights that feed into a design process
  • facilitate brand workshops
  • creatively direct a design process
  • kickstart a campaign to reach out to a wider audience with a message, to raise awareness or to inspire
  • tell your story through a short film

Who I am

Hi, I’m Adnan Mangral. I help people find and tell their brand stories. I work with businesses, organisations and digital teams. I have two decades of experience working with digital agencies and as creative lead on projects with ABRSM, IMG Artists, NHS, UAL, Innovate UK.

I love the challenge of uncovering the unique, emotional heart of an idea and stubbornly holding onto it throughout the process of bringing it to life.

As your creative lead on digital projects, I’ll help you come up with those initial precious ideas and develop them. I’ll then manage and work with your team or draw on my own network to deliver the vision. 

I draw on my broad network of collaborators to bring your story to life. This includes designers, cinematographers, production designers and developers.

A background in film helps me to preserve and develop the core vision, improvise and re-imagine at every stage and most importantly collaborate positively with others.

Let’s have a coffee and chat.
