After studying Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of Suffolk, Guy started working in the creative industry in 2002. Whilst working full time he also spent evenings and weekends working freelance with the dream of one day running his very own design agency. Fast forward 11 years and that dream became a reality when GCD became his sole source of income for his new young family.
Now a father of two, Guy is passionate about creating memorable and engaging brands for our clients. In his own words “Every brand identity we create is like one of my children, and they form part of the GCD family tree. I want them to be successful and will ensure we do all we can to support that success and build long term working relationships with our clients”.
In his spare time Guy enjoys road cycling, football and watching motorsport – and loves nothing more than taking his young family to race weekends to see GCD sponsored driver Rob Welham compete in the F1000 series.

During her career Hannah has overseen projects for a wide variety of clients including sportswear manufacturers, healthcare providers and companies operating in the financial sector.
With a keen interest in colour and illustration Hannah loves nothing more than visual problem solving and bringing ideas to life, especially in large format. “I always get a real sense of achievement when I see artwork I’ve created in print. For me there’s no better feeling than seeing a project I’ve created on a studio monitor tower over me at a trade show or exhibition”
