After working as a Production Manager, IT Assistant and Graphic Designer for a number of established businesses over the past 20 years, being directly responsible for the production of magazines and graphics has allowed Steve to acquire a multitude of creative skills and capabilities which he applies to all his work.
When Steve isn't designing, he enjoys family time with his wife, Lou, and son, Harrison. You can find Steve in a swimming pool at least 3 or 4 times per week too, and as a foodie, he has a strong interest in cooking (and eating), keeping both his mind and body healthy as well as creative.

Steve says

Design has always been something I'm passionate about, so to be able to combine this with helping people makes it that much more enjoyable. Seeing the smile on a client's face after providing them with the final product is what it’s all about!


With over 6 years of experience in marketing, Chris has worked with many businesses and individuals who operate in diverse industries such as trades, business services, property, professional sportspeople, retailers and more, giving Chris a strong understanding of how to adapt structured marketing strategies and produce quality content to target varying segments in different environments.

Away from work, health & fitness play a very prominent role in Chris' life, where he practices yoga and trains most days, in preparation for athletics competitions, as well as venturing out for regular mountain and coastal hikes. Chris also has a strong competitive interest in a number of other sports such as football and snooker.

Chris says

I love seeing people and businesses thrive, so being able to contribute to their success through creative thinking and carefully executed marketing strategies gives me great pleasure!
