The Real Digital Native

Steve Seager | strategy and communicationsThe real digital natives are in Generation X. We grew up using each digital layer as it was put in place — Mark Hurst, Founder, Creative Good.

Back in the day, I was a pro-musician, live sound engineer and PR. Then, courtesy of some geeky friends, I was bitten by the digital bug. In ’94 we designed Europe’s first live music webcast — 10 years before YouTube and when there were only 2,700 websites on the planet. I’ve been deep into digital ever since.

I first studied Drama and Dance in Tameside, then Business management, Management information systems and Video production at the University of Manchester.

The common thread: communication. I love figuring out how we articulate ideas, concepts, processes and propositions to influence behaviours.

I speak many ‘languages’: business and brand strategy, innovation, sustainability and design thinking, ICT, SEO, content strategy, UX and design, creative and storytelling.

Being the curious chap I am, I often develop and apply innovative approaches to communication by drawing on insights from narratology, film, media and cultural theory, and social practice.

Sometime visiting lecturer at universities including Syracuse, Dept. of Innovation & Entrepreneurship in NY and Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam.
