Who we are Meet your Brand Storytellers

We are a small, friendly team with a big design punch. The person you shake hands with at the start of the project will be the person you high-five at the end.

We are thrilled with the concept Hide the Shark developed for our classical season. It's fresh, creative, bold and enticing. As a response to our brief, it is close to perfect, resulting in our most successful ever classical season. Classical is one of the hardest elements of our season to get right, and they made it look easy. Sarah Robertson Communications and Special Project Director, Bristol Beacon
