Ian Pinnell

👋🏻 Hi I'm Ian, a marketing & communications professional based in Oxfordshire. I'm also a freelance UI designer,  ecosystem advocate and charity trustee.

About Me

I’m a Marketing & Communications professional from Oxfordshire. I graduated University with a 2:1 BA Honours in Radio Production.

I’m a creative and strategical individual and thoroughly enjoy all that the marketing mix offers. From the initial concept, right through to publication and evaluation.

I’ve spent the last ten years producing and implementing marketing campaigns and material for the Hospital Broadcasting Association, a non-profit organisation that represents hospital, health and wellbeing broadcasters across the UK.

As an award winning broadcaster, radio is also in my blood. I’ve hosted many programmes across hospital, community and internet radio. I was named Male Presenter of the Year at the 2014 National Hospital Radio Awards.

Elsewhere, I’m a freelance creative with a focus on UI design, having  designed websites, apps and other digital platforms for SME’s. 

I’m an advocate for Apple’s ecosystem, a Charity Trustee, keen photographer and countryside walker.
