In memoriam. Our co-founders Cliff and Jim both sadly passed away in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Their drive and ambition for the creative arts was unquestionable, they were brilliant designers, visionaries and marketeers that all of our team aspired to. Even during the latter years, as they slowed their working pace they were the oracle that we could call upon, their views and suggestions always worthy and knowledgable. They will be sorely missed, but our determination and vision remains the same, and their DNA lives on in all that we do.
