Work history


Founder & Director

Naked On The Piano

Apr 2015
  • NAKED ON THE PIANO is the creative and editorial arm of Furthermore Media Ltd. A central-London based agency, our speciality is creating content with editorial integrity and working with brands to find and implement their voice. This can range from wide reaching content and communications strategy, to bespoke publishing projects such as books or magazines, events, essential copywriting and editorial. We offer a full spectrum of design services where required but we are equally happy to work with your existing team. It’s not just about having a way with words. Our key strength lies in our far reaching network. Our team comprises journalists and authors, magazine editors and exhibition curators, all of whom are as well versed in making connections as they are in providing industry insights. We prefer to describe ourselves as a collaborative rather than a collective, drawing on a pool of experts to form a unique team for each project, from award winning, internationally renowned photographers to film makers, illustrators, designers and digital managers. Our clients primarily operate in the luxury sector but range from hotel groups, galleries and fashion houses, to governments, consulates and embassies.
