Glimpse is an open collective of creative people who want to use their skills for good.

We’re a group of artists, illustrators, copywriters, and makers who come together regularly to imagine a better world… and create a glimpse of it.

We have a core team based in the UK and thousands of volunteers across the world. If you’re interested in joining the collective, you can sign up here.

Imagination as rebellion

At the core of our work is a belief in the power of imagination to help us see new worlds beyond the horizon.

So rather than trying to fix a problem, all of our briefs start with the phrase ‘imagine a world where…’ and take it from there.

Read an example brief.

Find your calling

Glimpse exists to harness creativity for good.

We believe that most creative people want to make a positive difference in the world, but don’t know where to start.

If you’re interested in joining this experiment as it unfolds, please join us!

Glimpse is a global collective, supported by a core team of producers, strategists and facilitators.

Meet our core team below!

James Turner

Founder / Strategy Director

James has a passion for using creativity on things that don’t currently see much of it. After an early career at the BBC and ITV, he jumped ship to join Greenpeace’s communications team and spent ten years working on climate change, deforestation 
and Arctic oil drilling.

He founded Glimpse in 2016 as an experiment to 
see what happens when creativity isn’t used to sell stuff, but to communicate a vision of a better world.

Edie Gill-Holder

Creative Producer

Edie’s background is in finding creative ways to bridge the gap between political or social impact and culture.

She loves to think about how we can make the city wilder and more accessible, channeling some of that energy into writing her MA thesis on Urban Geography and Climate Mitigation.

Mike Andrews

Design Director

Mike heads up design and visual output for Glimpse. 
With over a decade of experience in branding and design agencies, he’s dedicated to bringing the high design standards of the commercial world to work that makes a positive impact.

Batseba Tesfaye

Creative Producer

Batseba has a love of storytelling and community. She had an early start in media in her native country of Eritrea and at twenty years old became the youngest ever news anchor at ERI-TV.

Since coming to the UK, she worked in a variety of roles and industries before joining Glimpse.

Lauren Jeffery

Creative Producer

Lauren is passionate about generating positive impacts and has a love for creativity. After studying Philosophy and Sociology at Bristol, Lauren channelled her work across the creative 
and sustainability sectors, engaging people in community work.
