About me

 

studio.b.archer@gmail.com studioba.myportfolio.com (don't use www before address) 07733223919 Life is about the people we meet and the things we create with them. I believe creative work needs to give brands a real purpose in people's lives. That’s the vision I follow after 15 years, where I have been privileged enough to work for some of the world’s top brands (Sony, Coca-Cola, BT, Experian, PwC) at some of London and the Midlands leading agencies (IncrediBull, Quintessential, Linney, Prodigious). I also started my own agency 6 years ago and have enjoyed the roller coaster ride that this has taken me on. I’m currently working with brands and agencies directly. If you need help with a project, either large or small, let’s meet and create something beautiful. My specialties include: Identity, Design & Web, Creative Direction, Communications, Social Media and Digital UX.
