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. 20 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 30 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!.

Belinda jointly set up Origin 1 with Alex, initially providing support on the design side until the continued success of the business enabled expansion of the design team. She is now solely responsible for the office administration and accounts. Prior to Origin 1, she had key roles in several graphic design and printing businesses working with a variety of different clients from major brands to start-ups.
