Creative Director - Co-founder
James has worked in the design industry for over 20 years. Starting his career as an art-worker he has learnt the ropes from the ground up. He understands the importance of asking the right questions to ensure he meets the brief and every project starts life in his notebook.
He has extensive experience working on a broad and varied range of design, marketing and print projects.
Over the last 10 years he has been heavily involved in web design and collaborates closely with Steve to provide bespoke UI and UX solutions.
Director of Web Development - Co-founder
Steve built his first website in 1999 out of necessity and has not stopped since. He has seen the web evolve over the last 20 years and is always learning new methods to keep on top of this rapidly changing field.
He built the Traffic CMS from the ground up and is currently developing our own CRM and project management system. His approach is always focussed on usablity and does his best to avoid techie jargon.
Don't call him a geek. He hates that.
Emma is enthusiastic and a real people pleaser with an eager to please attitude and and eye for detail.
Her skills perfected through various roles to include Sales and Event Management, Marketing and Project management in London where she lived and worked for 15 years in the corporate sector.
Problem solving and finding solutions through communication is her passion!
She is super personable and always ready to assist with any queries or problems!
Sally primarily works on fulfilment on all our web projects while Steve works 'under the hood'.
She also supports the studio with general admin as well as website testing before launch.
She is an established illustrator in her own right so also comes from a creative background and is an invaluable part of the team.
Front end development
Phil is a Brighton based creative who divides his time between web development and illustration. He helps Steve on most of our website projects providing the frontend build while Steve builds the CMS and functionality. We have also utilised his drawing skills when the need has arisen.
Kevin is a Brighton based full-stack developer with an almost alarming attention to detail. He works with us on our web development projects, mostly providing frontend support, but jumps in on the CMS work where necessary. He is also a talented photographer and designer.
Tony manages everything financial for us. He chases, he organises and generally keeps us in good order.
