Who We Are

Adrian Lear
Director (Business & Strategy)
Adrian is a creative and critical thinker, who has taken a ne'er straight path through creative practice, events, management, consultancy and business. Throughout, he has been compelled to look objectively and dispassionately at ideas and approaches - to take things apart and put them back together again. He has positively created and delivered change with arts and cultural organisations across Scotland, bringing strategic focus, strengthening digital literacy and exploring new ways of working.
Jane Wilde
Director (Product & Design)
Jane finds order and simplicity in the complicated, the messy and the muddled. A communications designer working across print, web, marketing and editorial, she has worked with arts and third sector organisations to build strong, confident and effective communication solutions. She focuses on identifying and understanding users and audiences; developing clear pathways through content and information systems; and presenting and articulating ideas effectively, whether it be online, in print or in person.
In addition to the core team, we collaborate regularly with a range of associates in order that we can best meet the specific needs of each project.

Where We Are

We could be based in a global city. We happen to be based on a Scottish island. Both are important to us, as context and as influence.
