Design & Social is an independent digitally-led creative agency, born in the social age. It was founded in 2014 by husband and wife duo Jon and Katie. After working separately for many years in their respective design and online marketing industries, we decided to come together and combine our skills, and are now supported by a trusted network of freelance creatives. We are based in Cambridgeshire, but work with clients all over the UK and beyond. We specialise in all aspects of branding, including graphic and web design, logo creation, illustration, social media strategy, community management and blogger outreach. To find out more about what we do check out our services page or take a look at some of our recent work.
Jon is the ‘design’ side of Design & Social. After studying branding and advertising at university, Jon has always had a passion for anything creative. As an avid designer with almost a decade experience across a wide range of disciplines and industries, from Web Design to Graphic Design, Photography to Print Production, he lives and breathes the online world.
When not working he loves to keep fit, build far too many lego towers with his two daughters, and travel as much as he can. Above all he believes design is not just how something looks, it's how it works and that is the main ethos behind our design process.
You guessed it, Katie is the ‘social’ side of the team. And you would definitely be able to tell if you were to meet her, as she certainly likes to talk. Katie studied Psychology at Leeds Uni, before working in online marketing within the travel industry for almost seven years.
In 2010 she had her first little girl and started a blog based on their adventures together. ‘Mummy Daddy Me’ has grown into one of the top ten family blogs in the UK and has won numerous national awards. Since then it’s been involved in huge campaigns with some of the biggest brands in the UK and has achieved a large online presence and influence.
Katie has extensive experience creating blogger outreach campaigns and managing social media accounts.
When not working she runs in order to eat lots of cake, takes far too many photos and spends all their hard earned money on plane tickets to as many different places as she can. She is utterly obsessed with instagram.
