Illustrator / Animator
Dave spends a lot of time in France when he’s not with us. He has a Canadian girlfriend who teaches English to French children and French to Dave. His favourite French words are croissant and gateaux. His speciality is animation and he gets particularly animated when Declan swings past and nicks his profiteroles.
Daisy loves speaking to new people, bringing in work, completing the sale and making clients happy.
She is first and foremost a filmmaker and has been for over 20 years, she enjoys any kind of film work and capturing moments that will never happen again is her true driving passion.
Multi-talented Daisy has a history in account management and also playwork with children with learning difficulties and amateur dramatics, so she can be found either building fires and dens, treading the boards or chatting up new clients.
She enjoys nature - spending the day by the sea with fish and chips and a kite is her best day out. Her cat Leia - also a sci-fi fan, keeps her warm at night along with her husband and two children (in front of Bake Off!)
The amazingly talented Mr Fry. We are all constantly in awe of how he can make the most challenging shots look just truly outstanding. We like it the most when he takes photos of chocolates and then we can eat them afterwards. Just think of us as "quality control".
Declan, piraticus diabolicus, was born in the wrong time. We feel he would have been happier swinging from the rigging of a New Age schooner, teeth glinting in the sun, brooding brows peering from underneath his skull and crossbones bandana. But, alas, in reality he’s a top deck web developer with nary a swash or a buckle in sight. Ok, maybe a buckle.
James is our New Business Director and, being the grand height of 6ft 7”, can be spotted a mile away. This isn’t always an advantage when he’s trying to catch a new business prospect unawares!
His speciality is reaching stuff in high places, especially his cat “Bells” whom he rescues from trees on a regular basis. "Bells", who is the shape of a bell, likes to spend her evenings cuddled up with James watching "Dragons Den”.
Cathy is the Paperface Princess, ruler of all she surveys and mistress of all the rulers. Designer extraordinaire - some of her designs are very extraordinaire indeed. She recently got married but we think she only did it so that she could make all her own cake decorations! She has an MA in Digital Image & Media but nobody likes a show-off.
In the beginning there was just Cathy, our Creative Director, who established Paperface in 2010. We’ve moved offices three times, from urban to rural and back again, and are now settled in The Cabin, near Southampton. The company has been helping businesses to develop their visual presence ever since.
We’ve worked with over 200 clients, from across the UK, on everything from a single exhibition banner to a full rebrand including website, business cards, logo, stationery and more. Click here to see our previous work and here to see what our clients say about us.
