Our core team is made up of exceptional designers from various backgrounds, and account managers with both agency and client side experience, working together with our network of specialist consultants to produce work that is always insightful, creative and relevant.
From Abbott Mead Vickers to Turnbull Ripley in three easy moves, Mr T is our Managing Director and, despite our better judgement, responsible for all ongoing client relationships and business development, as well as the smooth running of TR Towers.
No problem, I'll get onto it straight away
Yes we will!
When is grumpy happy? When it comes in the guise of our Creative Director, Treve (and yes, that's his real name). Never happier than when he's grappling with brand strategy, or overseeing the creative output of the team. Never grumpier than when he's watching his beloved 'Superhoops' lose again.
See you down The Westbourne
The human face of finance, that's our Owain. And it's a tanned and healthy looking one at that, due to the fact that he spends half the week working from home by the sea in Bournemouth. When he's at the office he spends his time balancing the books and making sure the fruit bowl is fully stocked.
Can I have your hours please?
Didn't we give them to you already?
Paula is our senior account manager and all round organiser extraordinaire. With an eye for detail, a client friendly manner and an understanding of design that almost makes her 'one of us', she is so much more than MrT's right hand woman. In fact in the time it's taken to read this biog she will have typed up a contact report, sorted a print quote and be sitting waiting to brief us on the next job. Blimey she's good.
This job is urgent!
More urgent than your other urgent jobs?
'Fail to prepare then prepare to fail' is a mantra that can truly be applied to Lindsay, our newest recruit here at TR Towers. In fact, so meticulous is she in her account planning that she even takes into consideration client location in relation to footwear on a day-to-day basis. As for doing the job, she can show most of us here a clean pair of heels anytime.
Flats or heels?
What does the brief say?
Picture, if you will, the love child of Ava Gardner and Richard Hawley and you've got r'kid. Gary is a talented designer, especially when you consider he hails from Preston. He is as meticulous with client work as he is with his wardrobe, although we all secretly think he wears his trousers just a touch short.

Who have you come as today?
What do you get if you only eat tuna, chicken, egg whites and cottage cheese with pineapple? In our case the answer is our designer Tom. With a minus body fat ratio, but an A+ in design ability, his creative muscle is employed equally across a range of on and offline projects.
I'm hitting the Gym tonight
The best way to describe Coops is as the Oasis equivalent of the 5th Beatle. Having arrived at TR Towers via Teesside and Manchester he has added a quality of thinking and no end of northern charm to the studio, as well as a sense of style right out of the top drawer. Well the one marked 'Madchester, keep out', anyway.
Remember I'm not in tomorrow
Is it Friday already?
Simona hails from Napoli, so obviously has a lifelong crush on one Diego Maradonna. More significantly for us, since her arrival, not only has the quality of our design output increased, but so to has our appreciation of 'proper' coffee and opera. Benissimo.
Hasn't he just signed for City?
If you've ever wondered who understands what all the wires and circuits do in the back of the server cabinet (and I'm sure MrT has), well JP does. He knows more about computers than there is to know about computers, and he's more than a dab hand at digital artwork and production. Also handy with a hammer, he's an all round good guy to have on your team. Ole
Right, I'm going to have to reboot the server
How do you describe the web wizard of TR Towers? In CSS obviously. So here goes. Starks is: position: relative; hair-color: #d1d1d1; width: expanding; background-image: cool, calm, collected; height: decreasing.
Is this W3C compliant?
No it's a tea, milk no sugar.
Think Trainspotting meets Miami Ink with a whole bunch of limited edition sneakers thrown in and you'll have a pretty good picture of our Keith. His design work is pretty cool too, adding as it does another dimension to our creative offer, namely height. Standing 6ft 4 in his Bapestas he is literally head and shoulders above the rest of us.
A dinna ken!
We don't know either
