Richard Barnes

Managing Director

Having spent a career building and nurturing kick-ass design teams to believe in a ‘whatever it takes’ philosophy, I now focus on the wider day-to-day running of our busy studio, ensuring our talented team stay happy, and stay hungry for more creative goodness.  I love the challenge of making sure we’re the best agency on the planet, and to ensure other agencies are tearing their hair out wondering what our Secret Sauce is.
