We see opportunities rather than obstacles and are passionate about the creative process. Drawing inspiration from anything and everything (internet browsing is one of our many talents), we love experimenting with new ideas and thrive under the pressure to stay on-trend and at the top of our game.
What ties us all together (apart from an addiction to caffeinated products) is our desire to push ourselves in whatever it is we're doing and deliver exceptional results.
Every client has their own area of expertise and ours just happens to be telling other people about yours.
Bella's passion lies in facilitating change and growth for Salad's innovative, inspirational clients. Working with the brightest and most creative talent makes every working day a genuine pleasure for her.

Director/Head of Digital
Adam is a migraine-suffering, sleep-deprived enthusiast of all things techy. A recovering Red Bull-aholic and office MC, Adam's knowledge of expensive guitars almost rivals his web development skills.
In a world of agency types spouting 'marketing speak', James prides himself on providing clients with a refreshingly practical, down-to-earth approach to developing and delivering strategies for business growth. These strategies may or may not include an analogy about a slinky.
A fan of joining things, namely gyms and leading design agencies, Rez has been fortunate enough to work with a wide range of inspiring clients, from cool luxury brands to the public sector via everything in between. Priding himself on his high tolerance to chilli and love of 1980s BMWs, Rez believes that beauty is in the detail; a mantra he applies to everything he does.
The eldest of sixteen children, part-time lion tamer and little known inventor of the bra clasp mechanism, Dan is a multi-faceted member of the design team with a mild propensity for fabrication. Former head of the Salad School of Baristas, he now spends most of his time writing staff handbooks, photographing potential health and safety hazards and dictating a strict music policy.
Social media wizard, Emma, knows that to move and promote brands you have to move people, so her speciality lies in helping clients create campaigns that deliver emotion at every point of interaction. She focuses on mainstream campaigns that are executed with style and intelligence, are highly responsive and deliver great results. Great results can also be found at Emma's garden bar, where there are always a mojito and several dogs patiently waiting.
Back on British soil after years of freelancing in France, Luke was keen to gain from the experience of working as part of a dynamic creative team - enter, Salad! Luke develops detailed websites by combining his digital expertise with an extensive knowledge of new tech. He's knowledgeable about photography and vintage cars too, but must be kept at least a metre away from all iPhones (he's a breaker).
Administrative magician, Charlie, is, let's face it, the glue that holds the Salad office together. Excellent at wearing black and even better at following obscure invoice related paper trails, she has created a role for herself as Salad's resident grammar policeman and copy-checker extraordinaire - anything to try and win back the respect of her colleagues following the 'I didn't find Anchorman funny' incident of 2013.
Andy is a qualified accountant and part-time FD who enjoys bringing financial strategy to the creative sector (and his wife's amazing cakes to the Salad office, much to the team's delight). In his spare time, Andy's often to be found on a football pitch, supping an ale or nearly beating Olympians in Sports Day fathers' races.
Oli lives a double life, although he prefers to keep it on the quiet. With a penchant for breakthrough innovation and a keen eye for detail, by day, Oli is our resident SEO superhero. After hours, his secret identity comes to life and sees him moonlighting as a 5-star chef, downhill ski racer and revolutionary philosopher.
Recently graduated (with a First) and ready to jump head long into the industry, Matt's goal is to put everything he can into learning from the experience of the talented people around him and enhance his creative career. As a local boy (with a First), being part of the Salad team is the perfect start. With high hopes for the future, Matt's looking forward to seeing where life (and his First) will take him.
