About Me

Our philosophy on life changed with the unexpected deaths of Jamie’s father at 56 & then Richard’s sister at 38. We saw life is unpredictable so re-grouped at 40 to start working together combining design & business expertise with time to spare for philanthropy (Richard works strategically with Macmillan and fundraises extensively) & family time; even buying the house next door for Richard’s Mum when his father died. Knowing your co-worker’s inner mind can lead to great efficiency – and the odd bust up! Our high-end clients appreciate our fairness and personal integrity. They also trust our opinion, often because of our strong family values, but also due to our “drop dead” style & the three adorable spaniels we have in the office.
