About

Olivier Ballou

My two great passions have always been design and politics. Throughout my career, I’ve helped organizations use visuals to get ideas across – whether through graphics or video.

I’m currently Graphic Design Director at the American Enterprise Institute – a conservative think tank in Washington DC. Prior to this, I was Director of Communications at the Manning Centre in Calgary, Alberta. I also worked on Parliament Hill for Canada’s Conservative party, helping the Prime Minister’s Office with messaging as well as visuals.

Born and raised in Val-d’Or, Quebec, I speak French and English, as well as Russian. I obtained my master’s degree in Political Communication from the London School of Economics.
