OKAY STUDIO EXPAND THEIR TEAM.
13 February 2020

OKAY STUDIO have kicked off the decade by adding two new members to their team: colourist Stef Colosi and executive producer Sophie Hogg.

Colourist Colosi is a versatile talent who has finally been persuaded to put down roots at OKAY after a number of years freelancing, while Hogg has made her mark on the industry both online and offline with stints at major production houses including The Mill, MPC, and Cut+Run.


1. Stef Colosi



With work spread across numerous sectors of the ad world, Colosi's reel spans from commercials for Adidas and fashion pieces for Dior, to Coach's Christmas campaign featuring Kate Moss, Spike Lee, et cetera - making him a choice addition to the OKAY team.

Colosi has this to say about his new home: "I am incredibly excited to be joining the team at OKAY on a full-time basis, working alongside a fantastic range of other artists to help push the creative scope of our projects even further. Within the collaborative boutique set up that OKAY provides, I am keen to nurture more talent in what promises to be a year full of incredible opportunities."



2. Sophie Hogg



Sophie Hogg has many years of production expertise and experience under her belt, and brings a keen eye and exacting sense of organisation to the team at OKAY. Her hunger for new projects should serve her new home well, as the studio works to expand its services to become a one-stop production shop.

Hogg explains: "I’m thrilled to be joining the super-talented team over at OKAY Studio and incredibly excited by our plans for 2020. This is a fantastic young group of artists, full of enthusiasm and fresh ideas; they’ve constantly pushed boundaries while establishing an outstanding portfolio in a very short amount of time."
