Our quirky creatives each bring a unique set of skills to the team, from branding and graphic design to animation and web development.
Scott founded the company in 2010 and rules it with an iron fist. A dab hand in all aspects of design from print to video and web development, he’s first and foremost the ideas man who manages the creative chaos and keeps everybody motivated (usually with rousing speeches, blackmail or pizza).
He has unreasonably large slippers and wears a size 13 shoe.
One of Kensa’s founding fathers, Rich studied Graphic Design at University College Falmouth which is where his passion for all things Cornish started. Nowadays Rich is involved in all aspects of running the business and somehow, no matter the deadline or crazy request, he always has a smile on his face.
Rich likes nothing more than enjoying a fine ale, his current favourite is Betty Stoggs which is (not coincidentally) brewed down in Cornwall.
With a background in Fine Art and a keen eye for detail, Jess’ creative flair brings a unique perspective to any creative challenge from carefully crafting a brand to storyboarding an animation. She’s also a highly organised efficiency machine and expects no less from the rest of her design squad!
A born and bred Shropshire girl, in her spare time Jess loves venturing into the great outdoors – often with a sketchbook in hand!
Dean originally joined the team on a graphic design apprenticeship, since then he’s become a Photoshop master and developed impressive skills in motion design! Whether it’s image manipulation or animation, he’s a perfectionist at heart and you’ll often see him zoomed in to the pixel level checking every detail.
Deans music taste ranges from rock, grunge and punk, to “liquid drum and bass, chill hop and house” (whatever that is).
With a long history of working with WordPress, an encyclopaedic knowledge of code and a background in UX design, when Luke approached Kensa we almost snapped his hand off! He juggles everything from responsive themes and bespoke builds to complex database solutions – all with a cheeky smile on his face.
Luke can often be found in his favourite tattoo studio adding to his impressive collection (he’s up to 50% body coverage so far).
Joining Kensa after graduating with a first-class honours degree in Visual Communication, Lauren is our go-to-girl for editorial design projects and is usually found adding those finishing touches to make a layout shine (while ensuring our clients’ branding is consistent and adhered to their guidelines, of course).
Lauren has always been a lover of luxury cars, and has just purchased her very own Audi A1!
With her background in business administration and naturally bubbly personality, Laura fits in well at Kensa. When she’s not keeping an eye on the finances, Laura is on hand to answer queries, help our clients, and generally make sure everyone is happy and the office runs smoothly.
Laura is a true Pinterester – when she’s not searching for her next craft project, she can be found baking sweet treats that she (sometimes) brings in to share with the rest of the team.
The second Jess on our team, her love of design comes from drawing mermaids at three years old (although nowadays her glitter usage has decreased… slightly). A natural born illustrator and super quick study, she’s learning on the job while finishing her studies in graphic design.
Jess first came to Kensa aged just 15 for work experience and we’ve not been able to get rid of her since.
A talented digital and print designer, Nik was drawn to Kensa because of the range of weird and wonderful projects we tackle. He started drawing at an early age, though rumour has it the main reason he chose a design career was to “avoid having to wear a shirt and tie all day”.
A fount of random facts, Nik was once on the gameshow Tipping Point – and he won! When he’s not designing you’ll find Nik rocking out to pop punk.
Kirsty has loved arts and crafts ever since she was knee high, even her school work ended up being transformed into something colourful and interesting. Outside of work she loves going on road trips and adventures, though somehow she always seems to end up at the beach.
She loves looking after and growing house plants in her spare time and has amassed a small army of plants to fill every room in her house. Pictured here is “Bert”.
Chloe studied visual communication design at university following a lifelong love of all things art and design. She has a keen eye for all things layout, from web designs to editorial work and is a perfectionist when it comes to typography – it’s all about getting the right typeface for the job!
When she isn’t planning and drawing her next lino print, Chloe is mixing up her favourite homemade cocktail, and baking or cooking something new for family and friends.
Having been inspired by the opening title sequences of Marvel movies, James is a designer who has become absorbed into the world of video. Whether it’s behind the lens, piloting a drone or sneaking behind the scenes, he’s always out to find the perfect angle for a shot.
James is a bit of a petrol head and frequently found ‘modifying’ his beloved VW MK5 R32.
Little is known about the latest addition to our code crew, though rumour has it he can code in more languages than most of us can speak and he’s a bit of a meme lord.
Mimo isn’t his real name, but don’t worry – you couldn’t pronounce it anyway.
