Alexandra Hayes


Creative Director

Alex, co-founder of Studio AM has been a designer for over 12 years and has had work featured in books and magazines around the world. Previous clients include Skype, Toyota, BBC Worldwide, WWF UK and The World Health Organisation.

She has a geeky love of maps and diagrams but mostly enjoys just pottering in a field somewhere with her animator husband, chatterbox toddler, two lively lurchers and two very naughty pygmy goats.

Gray Simpson


Lead Creative

Gray is something of a renaissance man, with a fine art background and over 10 years experience in graphic design and illustration. He's equally happy creating beautiful print projects, stunning websites or engaging concepts for national campaigns. Previous clients include Channel 4, NHS, Stonewall and errr...Aled Jones.

When he's not designing he's probably painting, cycling, playing video games or being introduced to weird foods by his gourmand girlfriend.

Nicola Howells


Senior Artworker

Efficient, accurate artworking is the name of Nicola's game; her main focus being to supply quality, print-ready artwork on budget and before deadline. She honed her pre-press skills at St Richard's Press; brochure publishing at First Choice and Sovereign Hayes & Jarvis; and production prowess at Oliver & Graimes.

Previous clients include Sotherbys, Goodwood, Elite Hotels, Kuoni, One&Only, Canadian Airlines, Tourism Australia and Jet2. Happy for Nicola = vitamin green: country pub walks rewarded with a surprisingly good 'on-budget' lunch.

Dilly Bush


Head of HR

Dilly Bush is a Mini-Schnauzer who comes into the office whenever she feels like it. Her current list of tricks is paw, other paw, sit, down, roll over, stand on two legs and a 360 twist and her pièce de résistance, playing dead after being shot by finger guns.

She enjoys chasing golf balls on her morning walk and has a golf ball collection of over 100 now. Belly rubs and super smelly snacks are two of the ways to get into her good books.
