BIMA Beat is our platform for digital creatives to showcase their work. It’s got clout – because it’s driven by BIMA’s Creative Council, Sony Music UK’s 4th Floor Creative and Spotify. It builds reputations – every quarter there’s the chance to make the final selection or be crowned the quarter’s winner by some of the best in the business. And it’s a safe, rewarding space – we launched BIMA Beat to support and galvanise the UK digital creativity community, so taking part is all about the positivity.

Fred Flade - Independent design consultant
Inspired by the creativity of the British design scene, Fred moved from Germany to London in the late 90ties, studying visual communication design at Ravensbourne College. The newly emerging field of interaction design became an instant focus. What followed was a 20+ year career in design for the digital realm – from the early days of interactive multimedia to the creative maturing of Webdesign and the permeation of digital technologies into all aspects of communication.
Fred was design director at two leading digital agencies, Deepend and Poke and co-founded and creatively led another two: de-construct and SOON_. He has always been driven by the ambition to create visually delightful yet highly usable design solutions that deliver results. Fred collaborated with clients such as the Barbican, VW, Panasonic, BBC, Mulberry, Vince Frost and RA - just to name a few - winning over 30 international design awards in the process.
Today Fred works from Lisbon, Portugal as an independent design consultant with international clients - still worrying about every single pixel. In his spare time, he recently co-founded digital travel magazine Cultourista.
