Bobby Galloway
Art Director

Bobby Galloway

With two decades of design experience behind him, Bobby is a master at bringing colour, composition, image and typography together in original and effective ways.

He drills down into a brand, getting to understand its core and then works outwards from there. Inspiration and ideas come from all directions, whether it’s Tate Modern, Soundcloud or The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills. He believes communication is key to the development of business – it enables growth of ideas, and coherent design is the backbone of that communication.

Ailsa Veitch
Copywriter

Ailsa Veitch

An overactive curiosity gland, a fascination for how people think plus a magpie-like tendency to store bright, shiny things to connect later and you have Ailsa’s core ingredients for a great idea. Add to that over 20 years’ brand experience plus a love of emerging technologies and it’s easy to see why Ailsa relishes the challenge of translating an idea into a wide range of formats. When she’s not tapping keys she’s tapping plant pots and tennis balls.

Let’s sit down and talk

We are generous of spirit and happy to pitch in from the outset. So why not bring us your challenge, and we’ll bring you our thoughts.
