Who we are

Since 2004 we've worked with large and small clients, locally and internationally, who understand that investment in design and development adds value to their products, services and organisation. Many operate internationally - our Canterbury office is just 1 hour from Central London, 2½ hours from Paris and 1¼ hours from London City Airport.

We've won both creative and business awards but our real satisfaction is in stretching ourselves creatively and technically on a project, then watching the results. Our team is intentionally small and flexible - we prefer it that way.

Martin: Lead Designer


I trained in biology and archæology, becoming a Chartered Biologist at 27. From early in my career I've both commissioned and delivered design. I founded Mpjdesign on the French Riviera; relocating to Canterbury in 2005 for its inspiring, continental feel within easy reach of London and Paris.

As Lead Designer I work across web, print and brand; this interdisciplinary approach allows me to adapt design techniques to different media. For the web, my role straddles design, information architecture and user experience - with a dose of project management. Having seen design from a client's perspective for years, I get boringly repetitive about the need to deliver results.


I’ve worked in digital marketing and design since 2012. I particularly focus on digital branding and enhancing user experiences for existing sites.

I’ve been involved with design in one way or another throughout my career. I’m interested in Agile UX, UI, and more specifically how design can work with user stories and iterative development. I enjoy collaborating with clients - creating designs with them as opposed to for them.

You: an integral member of our team


As our client, you will be dealing directly with us as the people working on your project, rather than an account manager. We believe these strong relationships with open communications help projects run most efficiently and deliver the best results - and our clients usually agree.

We need you to tell us about your organisation, its needs and operation, and also your customers and their aspirations. In turn, we can put our professional experience to work to come up with the most effective solution for you.

Of course you'll have your own way of working and we'll respect it. If you choose to work with us we hope you'll also choose to be an integral member of the team.

Independent specialists

It's rare even for large agencies to have every specialism in house. Like them, we commission specialists when a project warrants it. Most clients prefer dealing exclusively with us while some opt to hire a specialist directly. Either arrangement suits us, we're also happy to work with your existing suppliers. Specialists we work with often are:


Print design, art working and illustration. John's career has spanned large and small design studios as both employee and owner. His design work for the music industry has gained awards and international acclaim from critics and fans for over 30 years.


Commercial and creative photography. Jason brings a versatile range and sense of style to all his photographic assignments. We work regularly with Jason for ongoing and single projects which need professional photography.


Branding. We speak to James when we need a branding specialist capable of providing an in-depth and end-to-end service. His process led approach delivers original, creative and functional visual branding.


Search engine optimisation and online marketing. Josh's company has a strong track record in improving and maintaining websites' search engine positions using the latest ethical methods. He also provides SEO consultancy during website planning and social media training.
