Owner and managing director Alex is an enthusiastic, driven and talented individual (and no, he didn't write this!) who is passionate about detail and design; dedicated to providing an amazing level of service in this impersonal, unaccountable, pass-the-buck, never-calls-back world. 16 years ago, Alex had a vision to provide SMEs with high end design at a down to earth cost, whilst also providing larger enterprises with a more personal and better value service than they would get from a London agency, with no compromise on quality.
With over 28 years experience in design, marketing and advertising he has a wealth of knowledge and a great way of implementing it. They say, if you want to get something done, ask a busy person... well Alex is that person!.
