In August, Touch presents Ahmed Tilly. Ahmed Tilly was born in at the Coronationville Hospital in Johannesburg, grew up in Polokwane, studied in Johannesburg, lived in Lenasia EXT 1, moved to Cape Town for 6 years before settling back in Johannesburg. Tilly has worked at a supermarket at the cigarette counter, at a clothing store called John Craig selling shoes, folded a million t-shirts as a casual at Edgars, did a stint as a switchboard operator and stood outside a pharmacy selling plastic kids sunglasses. Needless to say, his dream to become a pharmacist died a disappointing death. His focus shifted to architecture but he failed miserably at studying science, Realising that this dream too had died, he moved back to his very 1st love… words. As a copywriter, Tilly worked at agencies like Lindsay Smithers, Publicis, The Jupiter Drawing Room Cape Town and TBWA/Gavin Reddy. In 2005 he started Black River FC where he created some of the country’s most provocative, most memorable, most audacious, most South African work for brands like Nando’s, MINI, 1st for Women, VUZU AMP and Channel O.
