PAUL HERRON

FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR

I have worked more than 25 years in design, digital and marketing, commissioning and creating brands, websites, content, campaigns, exhibitions, and marketing materials for clients far and wide, often working internationally.

That has afforded me real insight and understanding, but also a great list of tried and trusted contacts – specialists in their creative and strategic fields, from coders to copywriters and filmmakers to photographers. I also know, from experience, the value of having a strategic heart to any creative project – this really drives good creative work that delivers for my clients. And over time, I’ve learnt that’s what I like to see best: creative that delivers, making a big difference to businesses of all sizes.

Lucy - Copywriter

LUCY

Copywriter + Communications Consultant

I’ve been working with Lucy regularly since 2012 as she always brings something extra to a project – which is why clients love working with her again and again.

Her gift is being able to write about products and services in a way that gets businesses heard above all the noise online. From writing websites to white papers, blog posts to press releases, she helps my clients to get faster results and more return on their investment.

She’s helped an AIM-listed company become an international brand; developed advertising campaigns for our region’s airport; written winning nominations for national awards and helped a wealth of ambitious businesses stand-out from the crowd through their websites, trade shows and marketing materials.

Jeremy - web developer

JEREMY

Web Developer + Chief Geek 

I have worked closely with Jeremy for the last 15 years. This working relationship that has been forged over the years means he’s my go-to-guy for the brainpower, direction and development of my digital and tech projects.

He has led web development, mobile app development, user-­centred design and SEO projects. He has worked in WordPress, PHP, MySQL, Zend Framework, HTML 5, CSS 3, Javascript and jQuery for clients such as Sony, Sports Direct, 505 Games and Sheffield Theatres Trust.

When Jeremy isn’t leading the development of our digital projects, he’s following the latest developments in technology, analysing insane amounts of data, and having yet another cup of coffee.

HEATHER

Brand Planner + Copywriter

Heather’s a really experienced brand planner and copywriter that I’ve enjoyed working with since 2016. She has a natural ability that ensures she very quickly ‘gets’ the clients we work with, can define what it is that makes them special, or makes their services and offer distinct, and package it neatly.

She works with me on business naming, creative copy and copywriting, and together with our creative team helps to position our clients pitch perfect.

3D + Digital Artist

ANDY

3D Visualisation + Animation

When it comes to 3D visualisation and animation, Andy is the best in the business. For over 20 years he has worked across a wide range of sectors, including; product, packaging, advertising, architecture and manufacturing.

Andy creates high-levels of realism to showcase products features and how they operate in their environments. This is especially useful for clients who have products that work in enclosed environments, for example the internal workings of an engine or systems that are used underground.
