The people page. Possibly the page on our website you’re least interested in. Though of course if you’re reading this you must be interested to some extent. Unless you clicked the button by mistake? We’ll talk to our devs about increasing the padding round the nav buttons if that’s the case, because we pride ourselves on human centred design and using data to make our deci…hang on we’ve gone off message here. This page is about the individuals that make our agency great.
Always learning, always growing, always experimenting. It’s how we make sure we can roll with the changes and always deliver. We all have our specialisms, but it’s our love of digital and our belief in the positive role it can play that unites us.
So here they are in all their glory: our Adaptable Experts.
Ali keeps us all paid, and the company running on an even keel. But she does much more than run the finances. She runs the moors and fields of Devon. She recently ran 70 miles in three days for charity and does regular endurance runs around the county.
Felix is part of our network of photographers and videographers. After studying Film and TV, Felix now focuses on producing photography and video content across the South-West region.
Ben's our resident copywriter. He's good with words, but also branding, concepting, and pointing out the tiniest problem with something. Some would say he's downbeat. Actually he's like a real life blend of Charlie Brown and Oscar the Grouch. With better hair. But get him excited and the sky's the limit. Just don't expect him here after 5PM because he's got bigger things to attend to, like his allotment.
Ben’s our People Manager. He’s passionate about supporting others in their working lives - which is just as well, because it’s his job to listen to us whenever we feel like complaining. A Crystal Palace supporter hailing from South London, Ben’s gradually been making his way westwards, going to university in Bristol and now settling down in Exeter.
Joe is our Head Developer. He’s built many websites, and has helped develop a bespoke CRM for a Fortune 100 company that is now in operation nationwide. Outside of development he’s a music fan and got to hang out with heavy metal legends Pantera after their last ever UK gig. He plays indoor volleyball at national level, where his 6’ 5” height no doubt comes in handy. He’s both teetotal and tea-total (in that he doesn’t drink booze just copious amounts of different tea varieties).
Richard takes the chaos that is office IT and creates an oasis of order, and for that we'll love him forever. Except when the Wi-Fi is down. When he's not tweaking our tech, you'll find him tickling the ivories in our studio.
Hailing from the Caribbean, Laurent studied music before doing a degree in marketing. He opened up a studio doing cloud applications for businesses, usually selling products he didn’t have to businesses that really needed them before scrabbling to get a solution in place. Then he jumped ship to be a project manager. It’s that kind of hustle we like, and probably explains why he gets his fingers in other non-PM pies in the agency.
A decade of experience in marketing, including digital, print, and brand, gives Simon the skills to handle our biggest clients. But he's got more than one string to his bow. Six in fact, as he used to be a session guitarist.
With more than 14 years experience as a project manager and operations director, Charlie keeps us all on the straight and narrow. She used to be a session vocalist too. So when she shouts at us it sounds lovely.
Cameron is one of our developers here at Organic. He’s worked on many different projects, from large e-commerce operations and cloud-based video storage solutions to smaller brochure sites and everything in-between. A self-confessed nerd, in his free time you can usually find him at his local game shop playing Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons.
Ben once travelled the world for a month to shoot a 60-second ad for Tropicana. Now he’s at Organic. Well, all good things come to an end of course. He’s currently building a house down in the Devon countryside, and when he’s not fretting about foundations he’s out cycling and taking it easy. Oh yeah, and he is responsible for ditching Dawn French from Terry’s Chocolate Orange ads. Guess it really was Terry’s after all Dawn…
Scott is part of our network of photographers and videographers. After studying video production, Scott focused on setting down routes in the capital and winning funding and awards for his short films. Motion is a big thing for him. He once cycled 2000 miles in 20 days from London to Rome. ??♂️
Bea is our resident studio dog. She enjoys long beach walks and exploring the scenery of Dartmoor. She also loves bringing in leads.
Need someone to manage a URL migration for a website with millions of pages? Joe's your man. Outside of improving search performance he likes to fine tune his fleet of vehicles.
Joe is our User Experience Lead. He's fixed Dustin Hoffman's Wi-Fi (ask him about it sometime; Joe, not Dustin), and managed projects for Sony, Barclays, and Rolls-Royce. He won't fix your Wi-Fi but he will make sure your customer's have a seamless online experience.
A background in marketing and business development helps Jan grow and nurture our clients. As a huge sports fan you'll find him playing golf, and supporting Exeter Chiefs and Arsenal.
As a digital native Tom speaks the language of SEO. But not of Spain. Despite having lived there for five years. He loves a round of golf. And if you want to treat him, he won't say no to a carrot cake.
As founder of Organic James leads a digital agency that brings innovative thinking, creativity and agility to a range of leading global brands.
A keen surfer in her spare time, Jess studied television and broadcasting before making the move into marketing. Her background in video editing and social media management means she’s a great asset as our Marketing Executive. A big Beyoncé fan and our very own queen of karaoke, she’s irreplaceable.
Tora is our paid media and analytics specialist. When she's not head deep in data, Tora is a keen rambler and loves exploring the South West coastline.
Phil is Organic's Swiss Army knife. A background in SEO is complemented by a solid knowledge of social, paid media, content marketing, and strategy. A former pro rugby player, Phil now spends more time in marketing scrums than on the field but he's still a major fan of the game.
As Head of Client Services, Tim is motivated to deliver three things for all our client partners - enduring relationships, strong performance and fresh thinking. Spending 20 years in agency-land has equipped him with a breadth of skills and experience supporting many different types of organisations. Outside of work you'll usually find him exploring the wilder bits of the South West, either on his bike or with his dog.
With a background in B2B journalism, Charlotte’s our in-house copywriter. She loves working with words, but she’s also partial to some sunshine and swimming in the sea. If you can’t find her in the office, she’s probably gone somewhere warm.
Our Brand Experience Director, or as we prefer to call him the Ayatollah of Crayola, is an Organic lifer. How has he lasted so long? Because he’s always looking for a window of opportunity. But unlike his beloved Tottenham Hotspur he grabs it with both hands for the win. Day to day Ed art directs the output from our creative studio, making sure our work excites clients. Design, illustration, and branding are his forte. Football, video games, and 80s toys are his passion.
Antonio is Senior Graphic Designer at Organic. Or as we like to call him 'The Godfather of Design'. Or simply 'The Don' for those who prefer brevity. Website design, illustration, infographics, there's nothing he can't find a beautiful, creative solution for. When he's not designing, you'll find Antonio dominating the studio dart board.
Luka started off in advertising recruitment in London before trying her hand at SEO and finding she had a knack for it. Although she's a safe pair of hands for your search marketing, she's a little accident prone having cracked her head open nine times before the age of 10! Maybe that prepared her for a career in SEO...
