Our founding partners

Paul Bailey

Client Services Director

My role is to fully understand your business, aligning myself with your goals and making sure we stay on track to achieve them. I bring a lot of experience working with businesses of all shapes and sizes, from multinational PLCs to start-ups and everything in between.

Antonio Giansante

Managing Director

My skills lie in understanding businesses, asking the right questions and marrying strategic thinking with creative thinking. Helping businesses develop service offerings or working on new product development for brands is something I really enjoy.

David Newton

Creative Director

I oversee every aspect of the creative process. My specific expertise lies in finding what a brand is or needs to be, then bringing that brand strategy to life with effective design – work that looks amazing whilst working hard to achieve a business goal.
