Its all about us

Social animals spend time in large groups, but they still have to tell the difference between individuals so they can recognise mates, young, leaders and rivals. As the groups get larger, so does the scope of this challenge, and some species meet it by evolving individuality. As groups get bigger, their members become more distinctive.

When the name fits

Mr Yung summed us up pretty well. A geeky graphic designer who loves data and a dorky editor who wants to help people understand. We are social animals. We change the way we communicate so we can stand out in a crowd but fit within a niche. That's exactly what we do with design. And it’s what we can help you do with your business.

"I'm a big fan of keeping things simple. It's the way I live and the way I work. It's a cliché , but I believe design is communication. It's not art. It's not just making things pretty. It's solving problems and conveying ideas. Making things pretty is the easy part."

"I love to 'show' with my words rather than 'tell'.  I'm a big picture gal who works within the details. Being a persnickety grammar nazi who's conscious of user experience (UX), search engine optimisation (SEO) and accessibility means I can make the connections between the words on your webpages and your web presence."
