Conversations with the Crew: Meet Joshua Philpott

by Rachel Murray, 24 July 2019

Turn’s out we’re an office of secretly talented techies – from a rock singer via a hand-skateboarder (it’s a thing) to a diablo juggler. But we didn’t want to stop there so in June we decided to add a former professional footballer to the mix. Apparently Beckham was busy – something about buying some land […]

What Peter Andre Taught Me About My Anxiety

by Michael Seipp, 14 June 2019

I’ve suffered with anxiety throughout most of my life, but it wasn’t until a decade ago that I even knew that’s what it was. And oddly, I have Peter Andre to thank for that. While it would be fair to assume that another chart comeback post-Insania / A Whole New World remake is enough to […]

Conversations with the Crew: Meet David Laing

by Rachel Murray, 28 February 2019

When I meet David for our interview, he’s extolling the virtues of DIY haircuts to Annie, the office manager. The night before, he’d cut his son’s fringe (“A tangible improvement!”) with the kitchen scissors and was offering to do the same for her in the future, after she’d already spent five of her finest English […]

Conversations with the Crew – Meet Julian Horwood

by Rachel Murray, 13 February 2019

On January 2nd, we all bundled back into the office with a smile, a renewed sense of vigour and a lot of coffee. One person walked in with all that and two polo shirts on. That person was our newest recruit – Julian Horwood. A former Google-r (as in ’employed by’, rather than simply ‘user […]
