After taking some time out from directing, multi-award winning director and photographer Josh Cole has signed to Kode Media for music videos and commercials.

Cole is best known as a director for his emotionally arresting music videos for Chase & Status, Louis M^ttrs, and most famously for Rudimental's Not Giving In - for which he was awarded a UK Music Video Award and a place in the prestigious Saatchi New Director Showcase.

In addition to travelling the world telling stories through music videos, Josh has shot stills campaigns for Levi’s, Nike, Ballentine’s, Lucozade and Vodafone and directed TV commercials and content for BBC Asian Network, Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Bacardi and Rexona.

Taking a well-needed break from directing in 2015 and discovering his love for tai-chi, in 2017 he developed and ran a ground-breaking political campaign called "Rize Up" which was partly instrumental in the greatly increased youth turnout in the last general election.

In 2018 he went on to develop a series of Party Political Broadcasts for Labour - the first to feature no politicians just real people talking street politics. Josh has also dedicated much of his time the last few years writing and developing a number of projects including his first feature. 

Alex Harman, CEO at Kode, commented: "We’ve been fans of Josh’s work for years, so we’re pleased to see him back with a new lease of life and a hunger to collaborate and create. We’re looking forward to working with Josh and are delighted to welcome him into our family.”
