We're on the move 

Recently the team were invited by interior design company, Stack Interiors, to have a sneaky peek at the bare bones of our new premises. 

Aiming to be in by September and not far from our current premises, the move signifies the firm's continued growth. 

Partner, Simon Martin comments:  "A lot has happened since starting out in 2007. Where we are now is markedly different, from a client perspective, but also how we are as a firm. This is such an exciting time for us to consider how we work and how we want to work not only from a physical standpoint but culturally too". 

Sense of belonging

The design brief incorporates a number of features that really encapsulates the family dynamic and nature of the firm. The sense of belonging, team first and that interactivity between our clients and the team are all vital components to translate into the space. Often these projects can happen behind closed doors but we were very conscious for the team to input into the design right from the get-go.

Embracing a more open-plan concept will be a breakaway from what many are used to but this is deliberate. Individual offices will be located as internal spaces allowing a free-flow for more team collaboration. 

Our clients forever push the boundaries in what they do and are often at the forefront of innovation. This inspires us to stay current and responsive. Where we work, meet & greet and host, needs to reflect this inspirational trait, their business and our expertise (technology, media & IP).  We're delighted to be in a position to showcase the space and host events that reflect the industry and our clients' businesses.
