We are a tribe of creative micro-businesses working together in our Brighton studio.
We collaborate on projects, bringing together our specialist talents in the service of others. There's not much we can't do as a team, but if you want a quick list, we specialise in copywriting, coding, animation, branding, tone-of-voice, film-making, photography, workshops and all kinds of design - we're also pretty good at making websites.
As the resident ‘Man with laptop’, Ed’s happiest when talking to clients or writing copy. Occasionaly creative & always loud, he laps up hip-hop & high-octane fuel (not literally, obvs). Suprisingly good cook.
Random acts of kindness giver, google search master, hoarder of browser tabs, screenshots & interestingly useless facts. Lover of ferrets and fast cars - not together, that would get messy.
Fran designs like a goddess and has a fervent love of flamingos and Matt Sewell birds. She is also well known in the studio for eating things only in halves.
When Ruth isn't Creative Directing like a boss she is mainly thinking about gold and pin badges, OOooh golden pin badges. She also does shit portraits. They are not that shit.
Sam has one fan. And it blows his hair majestically whilst playing the best guitar solos on Instagram. He also enjoys a blast in Belinda CARlisle - his purple MX5.
Mat likes old stuff (you can tell because he dresses like someone out of the '30s), he even heads up a magazine about old stuff in his spare time... not that he has much of that with 3 kids and an aged cat to occupy him!
When Paul's not cycling across continents he's a web dev. He grew up on a farm which may explain why he resorts to animal sounds in an attempt to avoid explaining himself in a professional manner. Meowww woof.
When he's not building websites, you'll probably find Pete listening to Meat Loaf, running along the seafront or staring into space (usually through a telescope).
Cakes. Crazy children. Curious explorer of rock pools and gardens. I love technology but technology does not like me. I prefer pencils, paints and getting messy.
James builds his own computer keyboards, listens to drum & bass and loves writing and testing website server code. If you need a technical whiteboard session, he's your human.
Design & branding
We're a creatively curious team who believe in bold brand positioning, daring designs and courageous creativity.
Copywriting & tone of voice
Specialising in brand & customer experience communication, we help organisations say & do the things they believe in.
Illustrator & designer
Part graphic designer and part illustrator, you'll find her work adorning tables, bottles, walls, windows, magazines, websites and even cakes!

Showcase: Peter Docker | WhyNot
Committed to helping shift the world of work to be a place where the vast majority of people go home fulfilled, energised & inspired by the work they do, Peter Docker enables people to be extraordinary so that they can do extraordinary things. As a speaker, teacher & Start With Why Igniter, Peter presents around the world, as well as facilitating international workshops and bespoke leadership programmes.
Peter asked us create a simple, human, experience-rich website from scratch to bring Peter, his content & his ideas to life in the digital world, so they can have purpose & value in the real world. We also gave him a new brand.
Everyone I have shown the website to has said “WOW, what a website!” which, of course, I completely agree with.
Running a brand discovery workshop to define the look, feel and tone-of-voice of their new brand, we implemented the results across all their printed and digital collateral focusing on their website to create a clean and clear platform to display their fantastic projects.
Working with the enigmatic owner of AlchemyFlow Darren, we created the brand: Defined their look & feel, iconography & illustrations, created a suite of labels & packing and built an engaging website.
Arduino Spotify controller
We wanted a way to randomly select music to play in the studio. We put this together with an Arduino, an old Wii nunchuk controller, an antique Mac mini and some Node.js magic.
