Nova Dando is a commercial and music video director based in London, she has been listed in Grazia Magazine’s Cool List, the NME’s most 50 influential people in music videos and featured in Dazed, i-D, Elle, Vogue, Vice, Pop Magazine, Paper Magazine, NyLon and The Guardian. 

Nova’s clients span beauty, fashion, music and technology and she specialises in content for TV, video and digital channels. She loves to work 360° across a campaign from the idea conception, to direction and execution of the main film to social media specific content edits, offering the full package. Always fashion focused, Nova enjoys to work with a wide range of mediums, including live action and motion graphics.

Nova graduated from Central St Martins and her break into music promos came when M.I.A read an article about Nova in i-D and asked her to design the wardrobe for her next video. This led Nova into the world of music video and she worked on many promos creating the fashion direction for La Roux, Hercules & Love Affair, The Gossip, Klaxons and The Horrors. On these high profile shoots she nurtured her craft and the relationship with her clients quickly expanded to include creative direction of bands campaigns, making album covers and music videos, her first music video for Bloc Party gaining a Vimeo’s staff pick for its creative editing.

Nova also guest lectures at the London College of Fashion, specialising in Moving Image and Time-Based Media on the Creative Direction for Fashion BA course. By night Nova can often be found DJ-ing at fashion events with her best friend Lou Hayter, they have just launched an audiovisual show for 2018 with visuals created by Nova.
