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.

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.
Gail is immersed in the detail of digital, the numbers and their interpretation. She takes great pride in not talking jargon and keeping the conversation focused on what the results mean against business objectives and goal measures.

Her addiction to metrics goes on into the evenings and weekends with frequent analysis on how far she has run, at what speed and for how long. Her recipe for relaxation is simple: fresh air, exercise and a great playlist.
