Jonathan Chippindale


Holition lives as a vibrant community of experts that engage in the open exchange of knowledge, constantly exploring nascent technology to create new narratives of digital experience. We speak the language of mathematicians, scientists, strategists, makers, anthropologists and artists which allows us to create user-centric solutions that are outside of the outputs delivered by traditional creative agencies, software development companies or trend consultancies. 

Our carefully curated network and open minded approach allows us to function as a think-tank, designing empathic technologies that celebrate and enhance the very notion of being human.

Holition’s Chief Executive will showcase the power of technology to communicate, entwining big data, social experience and fashion into a powerful digital discourse, and in the process making you think, what does it mean to be human?
