Brookstone Creative Summed Up...

 

How we started

Brookstone started life in 2010 by providing online marketing services for what was then our printed business magazine. In 2011 it became a company in it's own right and as our team and reputation grew we became more involved in the actual design and build of websites themselves, as well as all the online marketing that went on behind them. Over time and many websites later our longer term clients were encouraging us to become more involved in their overall brand build and creative design, it made sense as we already had the skills and experience, so we carefully grew into Brookstone Creative Ltd.

Why we chose to go Creative

We were asked why we chose the route of Creative Agency, when we already had a well-known web business? Well the answer simply comes down to customer service and creative diversity. As a creative agency we are able to spend more time with fewer clients, providing a wider range of services and being more accessible. We now get to do those extra little innovative tweaks to projects that most web companies don't have the budget or resource for. Web companies are all too often forced to pitch for work on price alone, rather than quality of work and client care... And that so wasn't us!

We prefer spending more time working with fewer clients, quoting on quality and service rather than price alone. We like building long-term relationships and almost see ourselves as an in-house creative department to our clients.

How we work

Above all else we like working with people and projects we connect with, as this always results in the best ideas and innovation. Our clients like the wide range of in-house skills we offer them and how we don't spread ourselves too thin, they also like how easy we are to communicate with. Overall they seem to prefer the experience of working with a creative agency than a web design company.

A great way to start is through a good old fashioned meeting over a cup of coffee. So pop in and tell us about your company.

We would love to meet you.

 

The Brookstone Team...
talented, quirky and incredibly diverse

 
Richard Stinson Brookstone Creative

Richard Stinson
Director/Owner

Karen introduces Richard: Richard is our Business and Marketing Director with a wealth of hands-on business and marketing knowledge. Richard and I started working together back in 2010 and there was just the two of us back then. Richard was the marketing brains and I delivered the designs – wow, how we’ve grown since then! When meeting with clients he has this way of putting them at ease and delving deep into their business to come out with some incredible marketing ideas that nobody would have spotted. When he isn’t with clients he can usually be found creating havoc around our office by pushing the team out of our their comfort zones, pushing for new designs and technical concepts. It can be a bit scary at times but we’ve come up with some incredible results that way.
 
Karen Flavel Brookstone Creative

Karen Flavel
Lead Designer/Owner

Richard introduces Karen: Don’t tell her this but if it wasn’t for Karen there would never have been a Brookstone. Back in 2010, we started from nothing with little chance of surviving the recession of the day, but she’s such a brilliant designer I couldn’t fail to win business (don’t tell her that)! Karen has a wealth of design experience from working with some of the best graphic designers in the midlands. From designing fashion brochures to managing photo shoots, Karen is a pure driving force of design inspiration and creativity. She not only creates beautiful attention grabbing artwork, she can fluently program her ideas into HTML coding too, a rare double skill to possess. If you have an idea in mind Karen will bring it to life, if you don’t have an idea in your mind, she will help you create one. Karen brings an enthusiastic and joyful atmosphere to the design team and as long as the kettle is permanently boiling she’s the creative and technical engine of Brookstone.
 
Philip Noon Brookstone Creative

Philip Noon
Senior Developer

Philip specialises in Graphic Design and CMS Web Design. He provides a wealth of ideas and creativity to Brookstone as well as technical design expertise in engineering and automotive. Having graduated from Swansea University he brings a fresh and young approach to design and creativity. He is very in touch with the latest ideas and innovations, as well as being tuned in to the latest trends in social media. Philip also extends Brookstone’s artistic capabilities with his freehand sketching skills. He keeps us on our toes with his witty one liners that can appear right out of the blue sometimes! If you ever want to open a conversation with Philip, try approaching the topic of gadgets (especially Sony) or cars! But be warned, once you start him off you’ll struggle to stop him!
 
Aaron Moore Brookstone Creative

Aaron Moore
Senior Developer

Aaron is a huge source of creative and technical inspiration for Brookstone’s clients, his key strengths are coding and conceptual design, creating ideas and marketing media for businesses. Aaron studied at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College and has a natural ability to understand a client’s brief and then meet and exceed their requirements. If you’re looking for someone to take your idea forward then you should be asking for Aaron! We think Aaron would be good in the secret service as we hardly hear anything of him, he glides in, sits down, works hard and then glides back out with barely a word spoken! Is that because he’s quiet or does the poor chap struggle to get a word in edgeways in our office? You be the judge!
