Dave Montrose

Creative Director

Dave’s career started 18 years ago in consumer music magazines, directing photo shoots with high-profile musicians from bands such as Arctic Monkeys, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Cream. He can now be found providing creative oversight and direction for Octopus Group, setting the bar that ensures we’re producing great creative work across the business. Dave is also a Mentor and Ambassador for Creative Mentor Network, a charity supporting diversity and inclusion in the creative industries.

When he’s not covering our entire office in Post-it notes, Dave can be found throwing his kids around in the countryside, or hiding away in his home music studio playing guitar and drums, likely irritating his neighbours, and generally pretending it’s still the 90s.
