What are your ambitions/goals for the business?
To be a well-known brand. Stand out from the crowd and be the company that you go to when you're stuck on how to make something work, no matter how crazy the idea.

What is your best piece of work or stand-out moment?
The best is yet to come with the permanent transformation of the London skyline in a few weeks' time. A three-day interactive conference for GSK at the Old Truman Brewery in 2012, and the design and construction of the current marketing suite at Battersea Power Station.

What makes you a Fab 50 Newcomer?
We started the business in 2012 and turned over £715k in our first year. The majority of our clients from year one have returned with projects for this year, and we're expanding our client list further all the time, with new and exciting projects and some very unusual ones.

I personally think that how we do things is what sets us apart. Everyone claims to be different, but we really are. We're unfazed by anything, always calm and relaxed, utterly unflappable, professional, reliable, full of enthusiasm for just about everything. And I'd like to think lots of fun to work with too, as I'm sure our clients would be happy to tell you.
