Ivan Pols

Creative Business Partner

Creative Director


As founder, coach and consultant at Truth & Spectacle, I work with all kinds of people and companies, from rapidly growing start-ups to multinationals who want to create trust, innovation, and value.

I'm also proud to be the Creative Director for what3words, a company helping everyone talk about everywhere. We’re building a remarkable in-house team who are forging a new path for creativity in business.

I try to practice what I preach. 

Previously, I’ve been Worldwide Creative Director for Dove, Dove Men, Unilever and Philips, building and leading multi-disciplined and multi-agency creative teams at Ogilvy and adam&eveDDB.

I've collected major awards from most of the international shows, including Grand Prizes, Grand Prix and Golds for Integrated Campaign, Effectiveness, Cyber, Print, Social, Film, Product and Strategy. My work has also been included as case studies in TED Talks, marketing textbooks, business books, and parody videos.

I give speeches and talks around the world on the value and technique of communication and design, and coach creatives to be smarter business thinkers.
