What is a piece of advice that you would give to your younger self?

Never give up unless you have exhausted all options. If you have tried everything, then know when it’s the right time to move on and pursue another avenue.

Alex On Business...

What are you most proud of achieving in business?

Creating a business which is completely sustainable and has unlimited growth potential in the UK and globally. I love the branding and the story behind the business. Rollo combines the best parts of other projects (such as the charm) so it’s got the best of everything. Further to this, I very much enjoy working with my clients, whether they are small local companies or global corporations. To know we can work with any size and achieve such bespoke designs on mass, without compromising quality or the ethos of the brand is a great achievement.

Where would you like your business to go next?

On the corporate, I’d like to see it moving across to the USA and teaming up with more UK companies.

On the retail, I’d like significantly grow this to match the corporate side.

Who would you most want to collaborate with?

Smythsons or Bentley! Both have a similar brand ethos whilst offering some very unique capabilities.

What is your favourite Rollo item?

The Desk Block in burgundy or the Wiro notebook in grey.
