Maria Bowers: Over fifteen years experience designing for the publishing sector. Has a fantastic eye for detail and a collection of six different bicycles. Lisa Malyon: Marketing and organisation guru. Rolls up her sleves, cracks open a spreadsheet, and gets on with it - 'efficiency' is her middle name.

The Team

We are a close-knit team of five, working in an open-plan studio in a lovely Victorian building called The Fire Station in downtown Bedminster, close to the throbbing heart of Bristol. Some of us design, some of us code, the rest get stuck into marketing and spreadsheets. We’re also supported by a team of tried and tested specialists – from photography, illustration, copywriting and proofing to CMS, marketing and even translation experts.

Just like most agencies out there say, we offer “value for money and outstanding creativity on time and on budget”. But unlike most agencies out there, we think Will Ferrell deserves an Oscar for his performance in Semi-Pro. We also obsess about the finer detail – which we think is where design projects are usually won or lost. Okay, that may sound dramatic, but we’ve seen a grown adult cry like a babe when they discovered they’d misspelt ‘scan’ as ‘scab’ on their website – nasty.

Anyway, we’re a dedicated bunch who love what we do. Of course, we don’t always have all the answers, but we will work really hard for you. Above all, we get results for our clients (see what they say about us in the portfolio section). Our environmental ethos is also enormously important to us – it’s not just greenwash (check out our our environmental statement, it’s a ripping read); and we have a great track record at working with environmental, not-for-profit, social enterprise, charitable and third sector organisations.

If you want to chat over a cup of fresh, Fairtrade coffee and an organic banana, Temple Meads train station is just round the corner (we can come and meet you) and we're only a ten minute light canter from the city centre.
