I founded Bright Design with the aim of bringing a unique approach to the market, to understand the clients needs, and to provide online and offline marketing that works. With 15 years in the industry including six and a half years at Yell and four and a half years with one of the largest digital strategy providers in the UK, I understand the end user and how to position your marketing to drive results. Our focus is your bottom line. We drive effective solutions that increase revenue, a statement that our clients are happy to testify to.
Our personal approach means that we tailor campaigns to each client rather than using ‘Out of the box’ systems. We agree targets at the start of every campaign to ensure that we consistently meet and over achieve your aims. This end to end process means that we can demonstrate success for every client in our portfolio.
Alongside planning and implementing successful strategies for clients, life consists of family weekends focused around my 2 young daughters and squeezing in the odd round of golf where time allows.
Laura Operations Director
In order to keep the business running efficiently, you need an organised person to run a tight ship! This is where I come in. It is my job to ensure that everyone working at Bright Design has all the tools they need to do the job, including lots of coffee! I also look after all the finances and invoicing.
I have a 15-year background in Marketing, covering all sorts of media, such as print, photographic, radio and TV advertising. All of which I loved, and now I am adding Digital Marketing to my list. Understanding how search engines and websites work, and I’m enjoying learning the new media, with help from our experts at Bright Design.
With two young children to look after, I have a very busy life outside of work too. Most people would say that my main love is meat, pastry and coffee (are you sensing a theme?). I enjoy a good sing-along too, although I pity the ears that listen to me! I also love spending time with family and friends, whether it be round a table for Sunday lunch, or a fun bike ride with the kids!
Tom Head of SEO
A native of Northampton, I joined Bright Design as a fervent SEO consultant and now lead a team of digital strategists with the sole purpose of delivering marketing strategies that drive traffic and build growth, both on a local level and national scale. I have extensive experience in technical SEO & Web Development, Analytics, Conversion Rate Optimisation, Paid Search marketing, and Social Media strategy. Always being on the cutting edge of SEO developments ignited my love for all things digital. This passion only gets stronger as the world of internet marketing continues to evolve.
When not in the office, I’m a proud father to my daughter Elouise whilst also being a Man United fanatic.
Reece Senior SEO Executive
Every day is more exciting than the last. With SEO being such a fast paced industry, I’m always testing and learning, finding new improved ways to improve client websites, getting them better results each day as search continues to evolve. Between myself, the rest of the team and our “commander” we always make sure we are constantly learning to improve our skills set. I always try to bring a brightness to the workforce (if only with my notorious mustard-coloured jumpers), as well as the occasional gift of biscuits and Maltesers, and a lively humour.
I am particularly resourceful, (especially when it comes to hair bobbles, given that I potentially have the longest hair in the office!), and when I’m not helping others you’ll find me treating my amazing girlfriend to a KFC, out enjoying the sun, diving head first into a box set or taking down some villages on Clash of Clans.
Sam SEO Executive
I hold the prestigious title of being Bright Design’s first ever Digital Marketing apprentice. Whilst studying towards obtaining my certification, I also assist with fulfilment of our Social Media strategy. I also get exposed to the many daily challenges faced in the world of SEO and am loving every moment of this fantastic opportunity.
I am your average gamer who loves entering his man cave at home and using my PC. When I’m not gaming, I am out at nightclubs which I quickly regret in the morning! As well as a small passion in archery, I also have a deep love for Game of Thrones.
Michael Business Development Manager
I joined the company in 2017 as Business Development Manager to grow our already impressive client list – and to spread the word about the successes achieved for our clients at Bright Design!
I have a 10 year background in marketing related business development roles, with an emphasis on direct response print and digital marketing – and being part of the Bright Design team has allowed me to hone my digital marketing skills especially.
In my spare time I’m a fan of all sports (I’m a Swindon Town fan though unfortunately), I enjoy going to watch live music, and will happily spend an afternoon with a good boxset – or watching Bullseye. You won’t find me watching Big Brother, eating tomatoes, or going near sponges…
Zach SEO Executive
I Joined Bright Design in January of 2018, as an SEO Executive and am enjoying every minute of it. I’ve currently got a list of my own clients and plan to help them achieve success. Being in this constantly changing market means staying on your toes, which isn’t easy, but I believe that the rest of the team here at Bright Design will help me to become the next Apex Predator of SEO.
In my spare time you’ll find me wearing an Ice Hockey Jersey, dropping in Tilted Towers with the boys, or out in NB’s with a trusty VK in my right hand.
Matt Digital Marketing Apprentice
I am one of the newest members to the SEO team here at Bright Design and with each day I’m learning how I can expand my knowledge with digital marketing. I’m excited to get stuck into the world of SEO, hoping to progress and become a key member of the team. I’m interested in how my work can lead towards growth in content and traffic for any website.
When I’m not glued to my screen competing for first in any game I’m either delving into a new series, reading up on theories on upcoming films/ TV shows (mostly Marvel!) or getting my hands dirty working on classic cars.
Kasra Web Developer
I am the web developer for Bright Design. I joined the company in April 2018. I am always testing out new methods, designs and techniques trying to get the perfect balance of design, usability and performance out the sites I create.
I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University back in April of 2017 and since then I didn’t waste any time in getting on the career ladder I had previously done free-lance web work while at university and have been in previous marketing department learning a lot about advertising, marketing, video development, graphics design and of course web development I decided to join Bright Design as I needed a new challenge.
In my spare time you will find me either out in town with friends enjoying a couple drinks, collecting stickers for my Panini Russia 2018 book, watching Chelsea get beat or binge watching a tv show on Netflix. Unlike Michael you will find me eating tomato’s and going near sponges.
Rebekah Social Media & Content Manager
As Bright Design’s first ever Social Media and Content Manager – I joined in May to bring my enthusiasm for social media marketing, content strategy and copywriting to the team. I’ll be working with the team to optimise interesting and engaging content to increase search rankings and generate leads for our clients.
In my spare time, I’m a self-declared bookworm. I love reading books of pretty much any genre – especially recipe books! I also spend a lot of my free time writing, cooking, eating, travelling, avoiding the gym and trying to wrap my head around sponge-gate.
