Ossian Whiley is a creative technology consultant with a background in architecture, engineering, and construction. Now the proud founder of Whiley&Co, who provide forward thinking organisations from theatres to festival promoters and property developers with innovative, interactive applications, design visualisations, and immersive training solutions.
Over the past 5 years, Whiley&Co have been heavily involved in projects focused on the regeneration of Bristol City Centre including the Finzels reach development and CARGO at Bristol Harbourside – using game engines to create fully interactive models to enhance each stage of the project’s life cycle from concept design, through planning and marketing with virtual reality walkthroughs and mobile apps.
Their current in-house projects include an interactive training application that uses digital humans to improve workplace understanding of neurodivergent conditions such as anxiety, depression, and dementia. They’re also working on virtual reality experiences for prisoners to upskill, improve employability, and enhance mental wellbeing. Finally, they are soon to launch an augmented reality, urban play and arts platform that bridges the gap between the real world and the metaverse.
