Creative team

A small creative marketing agency with a large bag of skills

As enthusiastic self-starters it's refreshing to work with us. No spoon feeding necessary. Just hard work and light-hearted banter keeps us going. Oh yes, takeaway pizzas help, along with some great clients.

Whether we’re designing for print or for digital channels, we use the same approach. We listen to our clients, we do a lot of thinking and we undertake many explorations.

Then we get creative

Each of us has our own strengths and specialisms and together we make a strong creative team. With brand consultants, designers, website developers and project managers. Where necessary, we also collaborate with independent copywriters, photographers and film-makers, as well as search engine optimisation and social media specialists with the very best skills for your particular brand and specific project.

All fully briefed and art directed by us, they'll know precisely what needs to be achieved. So you’re only paying for their expertise when needed. Which means we scale up very quickly as workloads demand.

Craig Thatcher

branding specialist_managing director_author_

Craig provides unbiased strategic advice on marketing and design and'll help you harness the power of branding to achieve your commercial objectives. He is a highly enthusiastic and capable project director having worked with many large blue chip clients in different market sectors over the last thirty years. He also enjoys copywriting, shooting and editing very short films, and is a popular speaker and workshop facilitator.

He is always sharing his accumulated knowledge and all the new things he's learnt in many different ways and in his book, ‘Continuous Branding'. Which includes a strategic tool with five principles. Useful for anyone in business who wants to grow their company by engaging and motivating their people to build their brand. He enjoys watching rugby union, loves ornithology and wine made from the Merlot grape. Grown up children left home years ago, so weekends are a lot quieter. His gardening skills have been unfairly described by his wife as just like 'council pruning'.

Rachel Allman

Rachel thrives on developing commercially effective solutions to your brand’s challenges, whatever they may be. With a background in psychology, she’s fascinated by what makes different audiences tick. Bringing her deep insights to every project. She is bright, intelligent and has a sound strategic mind. Her role is to provide clients with our best creative work to help them to grow their brands, yet never losing sight of the smallest details that could undermine the best laid plans.

Previously she has worked for a couple of the biggest international branding agencies in London and this experience is invaluable for our clients. She loves stretching her skills and enjoys challenging the rest of us to be better. When not problem solving you can find her in the yoga studio or trying to catch up with her toddler, Belle.

Debs Daborn


Don’t be fooled by Debs’ naturally understated personality. She has extensive knowledge and a deep understanding of the design and print industry based on more years than she'd ever admit. She's also responsible for designing and implementing outbound digital marketing campaigns and managing the print production of collateral materials for our clients. Thoughtful, meticulous and extremely talented, she also designs and builds responsive websites using WordPress.

When not in the studio, she is a prize winning watercolourist in the little spare time left after tending to her garden and her family. She loves pruning, mowing the lawn, neat edges and well painted fences! To her, life like design, is all about beautiful simplicity and she’s never happier than in the company of those she loves most, especially her little boy, Samuel.

Alison Green


Alison GreenAlison proactively supports our creative design team with enthusiasm and super efficiency.

She is continually on the go outside of the studio too, with three children providing a rich source of material for her book - as she is a budding writer. She ran her seventh Marathon in 2018 and is wondering whether she should swap her running shoes for walking boots.

Tim Green

Tim works tirelessly behind the scenes keeping us on track financially by overseeing our management accounts.

Outside of the studio, he is keen on golf and ornithology and loves taking regular holidays with his wife and short breaks with his friends around Europe. Despite all the practice, his handicap remains stubbornly high.
