FOUNDERS
  • DAVID ACTON

    DAVID ACTON

    MANAGING DIRECTOR

    David began his career working in business development, helping companies expand and to realise unused potential. It was this experience, which, many years ahead of the competition, allowed him to understand that the future for growth and exploitation of new markets lay in the world of digital.

    His vision proved extremely accurate, and it is a testament to that foresight which caused him to set up one the country’s first specialist e-commerce development agencies in 1996, putting him at least a decade ahead of many other practitioners.

  • JON GROOM

    JON GROOM

    CREATIVE DIRECTOR

    Jon is an award winning Creative Director and Copywriter who has been lucky to have worked with some of the most prestigious agencies and clients in the world. Whilst at Publicis London, he was responsible for the creative conception of the British Army’s ‘Start Thinking Soldier’ campaign.

    The campaign won many awards for its cutting edge blend of live action and gaming mechanics, but more significantly, it helped the Army meet its recruitment target for the first time in 12 years. The campaign registered more than 2.5 million visits to the website, 80,000 registrations and 31 million page views.
