Hi, I’m Valentine “Mick” Celliers

I’m a digital strategist. I try to travel the world (money & time permitting – lol), listen to music (everything is better with a backing track), make gifs of my colleagues (’cause why not?) and lust after creative work and digital creations (that I wish I did).

In 2017 I decided that I should explore more ways to express myself – documenting my life, thoughts, work and ideas… Kinda like your 14 year-old-sister’s dream journal, but with less more doodles and hearts.

So first order of business for 2017 was to create this virtual brain vomit… a self-portrait of idiosyncrasies. It will hopefully (and very likely) change often.

My experience and hands-on know-how across most digital departments has allowed me the privilege to work on all types of markets, offering solutions and multi-national strategies for global brands including Google, Red Bull, Martell Cognac, Miller GD, Samsung, Porsche and Nike.

When I’m not practising online witchcraft & scrolling/stalking social feeds, you can find me napping on couches around town, tumbling deep into psychedelic sound exploration and watching obscene amounts of football without a trace of shame.

Catch me on my social channels to stay up to date:
Instagram | YouTube | Twitter | Facebook | LinkedIn (if you have to)

More about me

hike

Outside stuff

I was raised in Africa and something probably less common nowadays is that I attended scouts when a kid. Even though I’m wrapped in media, I’ve maintained that outdoors love affair.

fifa

Fifa

I hate to admit it, but Fifa 2017 was the first year in some years that I didn’t crack Div 1. Every day is dark and gloomy knowing that. Luckily there’s always a new season and the certainty of EA pocketing another £100 of my money for me to try again.

awards

Awards

I’ve been part of teams to have collected a few prestigious awards along the way. However, until there’s a Cannes Lions to speak of, none am I more proud than that of my bronze certificate for maths in grade 3.

music

Music

From Jimmy Page to Roky Erickson, I pretty much put most of my high school studies on the back burner while I underwent a vigorous investigation into the underbelly of 60’s/70’s rocknroll.

travel

Travel

I’m testing my mind and my creativity for as long as the wick burns. And the muse of creativity burns longer and brighter if you feed her the right things. I travel when I can. One day I’ll make up for lost time by retiring to an island getaway.

youtube

YouTube

Many times have I flirted with the idea of renouncing my activity in any media consumption outside of YouTube. Seems to be imminent if it weren’t for giphy.
