  Dijon Hierlehy    Creative Director    Dijon graduated from The University of York with a degree in Philosophy, before completing his Master’s degree at Birkbeck.  A self taught artist he has exhibited at the Royal College of Art, Central Saint Martins and LAB art in Los Angeles,exhibiting alongside many artists including Tracy Emin and Chris Levine.  Having bought some of Dijon's art, it didn't take long to realise he had the skills that butterfly needed.  Luckily, Dijon thought the same - and as they say the rest is history.  Dijon now leads butterfly design.

  GoldPine Productions   Brothers Joe and Jack Carrano are a prime example of butterfly users. Young, hip, creative and sushi aficionados!  After studying Film at the University of Hertfordshire they set up Goldpine in 2015. Since then, this independent and visionary film company has worked for leading UK art galleries, produced several music videos and award winning short films.   We couldn't afford to buy the company, but we liked them so much  -  we hired them to be butterfly's official videographers.  PS. Don't tell anyone, but Jack is also Fiona's personal "street talk" translator e.g. "Boss it's Grime aka Stormzy - not Grind - that's a different kinda song!"
