Meet the team

At Front Page, print designers sit next to digital designers, who sit next to copywriters, who sit next to account managers, who sit next to developers. This side-by-side approach allows us to collaborate more freely, to bounce ideas around, and to work outside our individual specialties, making the end results a true team effort. So come and find out a bit more about us. Who loves Parma Violets and who hates Nickelback? Whose favourite movie is a toss up between Jaws and Bridesmaids, and which one of us earned the nickname Frank Bruno? You might be surprised…
