About us

Purveyors of creative excellence

We tell people we're trendy creatives but really we're just a bunch of geeky nerds with a talent for branding and communication. Creators, collaborators, critics, designers, dreamers, developers, researchers, marketeers, photographers, planners, strategists, readers, writers, customers, artists, surfers, skaters, cyclists, musicians, cooks, lovers, haters, fashion victims, parents, party animals, friends, humans. We are any and all of the above.

 

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.

We're an agency and a team but most importantly, we're a carefully selected bunch of individuals. Some of us design, some manage, some code and some write. Some even make the lunch.

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.

Meet The Team

The faces behind the names
Bella

Arabella

Founder/Managing Director

-

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. Well, that and the high volume of treats the team award themselves - never let anyone tell you Salad doesn't make you fat.

Adam

Adam

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.

James

James

Director/Account Director

-

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.

Rez

Rez

Lead Creative

-

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.

Dan

Dan

Senior Designer

-

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.

Emma

Emma

Account Manager

-

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.

Luke

Luke

Web Developer

-

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).

Charlie

Charlie

Administrator

-

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

Andy

Financial Director

-

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.

Natalie

Natalie

Designer

-

Passion, motivation and creativity; just some of the traits that inspire Natalie when she’s baking treats for the team. She’s also pretty good at design too. When she’s not baking, Natalie spends her spare time in front of the sewing machine creating handmade crafts to sell at local fairs.

Oli

Oli

SEO Manager

-

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.

Matt

Matt

Designer

-

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.
