Coming from an advertising background, Michael loves to take a brief and run with it. Pushing the boundaries and creating stand-out design are among his many motivations. If he wasn’t so busy drawing, he’d probably be the reformation of his imaginary band ‘The Lapelles’, but for now, he has to make do with regularly attending live gigs in town. His musical taste is as eclectic as his design style, with anything from Ryan Adams to Hall & Oates on his daily playlist.
A fearless entrepreneur with a passion for creative and the drive to get results. Sarah’s background was in food retail and brand management before making the leap from client-side to client services. This experience gives her a unique insight and perspective into the challenges faced by marketers and businesses. As a dedicated food-lover, Sarah loves to try out new flavours and restaurants, cramming in a daily HIIT or yoga session to counteract all the cheese and biscuits!
A free thinking, bold creative, with a passion for typography and a wilful disdain for the ‘safe option’. Over the years Naz has gathered heaps of experience working with everyone from start-ups to global companies in the UK and US. Naz loves to create and work on brands with big personalities. Away from the sketchpad and Mac, Naz is generally happiest in the great outdoors, getting lost up a mountain before returning to sup a pint in the local afterwards.
The laid back, and considered member of the group, Nathan loves simple, elegant design – thinking of the big idea and making it sing. Having worked in London agencies for the likes of Unilever and GSK, Nathan came back up North seeking a new creative challenge and some fresh air! Outside of work Nathan can be found pounding the pavements training for marathons – or running after his two children, Martha and Sophie!
Laura has previously worked with independent and global brands covering online and offline communications, including experiential and events. A genuine ‘all rounder’ with a passion for branding, she’s an avid music fan who aspires to be Lauren Laverne’s business associate. Food lover, wine enthusiast and occasional clubber – you’ll usually find her gracing Manchester’s cafe bars and restaurants, or walking her pug Hetty in the local park.
