Meet our team
Graphic & Web Designer
Digital Design Executive
In the 1980s, in a world before mobile phones and the world wide web, Sharon studied graphic design, then keenly entered the world of work, with the ambition of running her own business one day
With a special interest in branding and brochure design, Sharon loves designing and spends most of her life immersed in the digital world.
As ‘Queen Bee’, she also looks after the hive and ensures the team consistently delivers the high level of service our clients deserve.
When not at her desk, she’s on roller skates representing Roller Derby Leicester. Perhaps skating around the office could help with meeting the deadlines?
Website & Graphic Designer
Before joining us, Lorinda worked as a graphic and web designer for over eight years, specialising in the training and recruitment sector.
As well as creating a wide range of printed and digital marketing materials, in 2010 Lorinda discovered the ever-changing world of online marketing, which sparked a passion for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and UX (User Experience).
In addition to creating designs that look good, it’s a priority for Lorinda that any work communicates clearly to its audience and is accessible.
When she’s not designing or out enjoying Leicester’s live music scene, Lorinda’s personal project is the never-ending task of decorating her house and seeking vintage home ware.
Digital Design Executive
In May 2013, Katie joined the team as an Apprentice, then quickly progressed into the role of Digital Design Executive.
Although she’s taken well to the role, it’s clear she also has an eye for design and is currently training to be a graphic designer.
As a big fan of reading and literature, Katie prides herself on being able to spot typos and is ‘chief proof-reader’ for the team. She also keeps tabs on the advertising deadlines and on all of us… someone has to keep us organised!
Being the youngest member of our team means Katie is technically savvy and spends a lot of her free time staring intently at her iPhone. Consequently, she is our fountain of knowledge when it comes to what’s happening in the world of social media.
