The Team

Over 25 years in media and communication means we've had a lot of time to learn from our mistakes...

Joe Pélissier
Managing Director

1. Creative /  business background?

I come from a 200 year-old theatrical family but resisted the temptation to become an actor. Instead I started my career in the film industry working on Agatha Christies’ ‘Dead Many’s Folly’ with Peter Ustinov.

I’ve worked on documentaries, commercials and film / tv drama; on the big-budget stuff as well as the shoe-string projects. I had many enjoyable years working with John Cleese’s video training company, Video Arts and in particular with the legendary director, Charles Crichton. I then moved into multimedia, digital media and consultancy. Pélissier brings together my knowledge of media and communication to help brands create a demand for their services

2. What do you enjoy most about your work?

Meeting and working with so many different clients, the chance to learn about what they need help with and the opportunity to come up with an approach that will work. It’s great when the most unlikely thing works or grabs a viewer’s attention. I travel a lot and so enjoy working with different cultures and age groups, especially the young.

3. City or Country?

I’m a Londoner born and bred, but fortunate to live in rural Gloucestershire. I love the anonymity of London and feel that I’m a part of the city whenever I’m there.

4. When you‘re not working?

I’ll be found walking; if I’m lucky in the Western Scottish Highlands…perhaps, drinking a dram or two. If not, I’ll be watching TV drama or rugby.

5. Your favourite film? 

Billy Wilder’s ‘Some Like It Hot’ – there are very few films you can watch repeatedly, knowing that you are going to laugh shortly and enjoy what is going to happen next.

Igor Boskov
Creative Director

1. Creative /  business background?

After graduating from Central St Martins, I learnt my craft working at John Cleese’s Video Arts and then at Monty Python Pictures. Firstly, editing a pioneering medical series written by Graeme Garden and then assisting film editors working with Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam.

2. What do you enjoy most about your work?

Getting to someone’s core and telling their story in a way that pleasantly surprises them (lots of people don’t know how amazing they are). Creating a voice for a brand that is consistent and clear.

3. City or Country?

I’m from Skopje, the capital of Macedonia so I’m from the city. However, whenever I am in London I miss Hampshire…and the other way around!

4. When you‘re not working?

Weekends are a great chance to reflect and be more introspective about bigger issues.

5. Your favourite film? 

‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ – from the moment that Woody Strode enters the station ticket office with Jack Elam and Al Mulock we know we are in for a cinematic treat of peerless visual framing and masterful sound effects.

Adam Marshall
Designer & Developer

1. Creative / Business Background?

After completing my Multimedia Technology degree I spent 10 years working for both independent and global advertising and media agencies. This allowed me to work on a wide range of clients from all sectors. I specialise in both design and development, overseeing projects from concept to completion.

2. What do you enjoy most about your work?

I always try to simplify and distil the clients brief to focus on exactly what they are trying to achieve. Through low-fi design iterations and interactive models, we can explore lots of options and really pin down the designs and functionalities which deliver results, and cut through the noise. Going on this journey with the client is very rewarding and always leads to more effective and satisfying results.

3. City or Country?

90% city – 10% country

4. When You’re not working

I enjoy live music, walking the dog and Scandinavian crime dramas.

5. Favorite Film

The Thing (1982)
