We work with some of the best creatives in the world – writers, artists, actors and visionaries – and our clients include Aardman, the London Review of Books, Moomin Characters, Penguin Random House, Rebel Girls, the Royal Exchange Theatre and the Royal Institution, plus talent including Matt Haig, Nova Reid and Mya-Rose Craig aka Birdgirl.
