Our senior team have been working together for over 10 years.

All are masters of their individual trades, and all live
and breathe financial services.

Marilyn Cole

Managing Partner

Marilyn Cole

Before founding Space with Paul, Marilyn spent far too long working in financial services, as both provider and adviser.

She uses that experience to head up our research team. And she’s a true jet setter, regularly commuting all the way to Australia for our clients down under.

Paul Brooks

Creative Partner

Paul Brooks

Paul’s been creating digital experience and communication strategies for over 25 years. He loves ideas – and Space has been one of his best.

When he’s not helping clients see the bigger picture he indulges in his twin passions of investing and classic cars.

Nothing makes him happier than investing in classic cars.

Paul Wilson

UX Partner

Paul Wilson

Paul’s a master at making things happen. A UX designer by training he now takes responsibility for delivery of our technical projects

In his spare time, Paul enjoys hiking. Thankfully, he never goes walkabout in the middle of any project.

Paul Middleton

Financial Director

Paul Middleton

Paul’s many years of experience and cool head for figures – he’s even worked with the Bank of England – keep Space finances healthy.

When Paul’s not keeping tabs on the numbers he’s out on the course, seeing if he can’t get his golf handicap under control too.

Jessica Littlewood

Client Services Director

Jessica Littlewood

Jess applies her Strategy Director experience from top London and Sydney agencies to help Space clients solve tough business challenges.

Those years in Australia left Jess with a taste for the great outdoors – she’s a triathlon competitor – and for great red wine, of course.

Jeremy Robson

Technical Director

Jeremy Robson

Jeremy is a developer with over 25 years’ experience. Whatever the technical challenge he’s seen it, done it and got the I.T shirt.

He also keeps us up to date on all the latest technical innovation. However, he goes back to the 70’s every weekend when he takes his Ford Escort Mexico for a spin.

John Artus

Sector Strategy Director

John Artus

For in-depth product knowledge Space has industry insider John. Stints with many of the UK’s leading financial companies means John knows a lot about pensions, insurance and the like.

John’s equally gifted at calculating risks of another kind – regularly turning a healthy profit on the poker table and at the track.

Colin Franks

UX Director

Colin Franks

An insightful and experienced UX practitioner, Colin helps Space clients optimise digital touchpoints across every customer journey.

Colin’s love of technology extends to putting his pride-and-joy Tesla through its paces at the weekend. It’s sure to catch on soon, Colin.

Oli Dillon

Head of Studio

Oli Dillon

Oli’s eye for detail, typographic subtlety, and all-round brand design skills make him a firm favourite with Space clients.

Along with the latest design thinking, Oli’s devoted to staying in shape. With two Ironmans and six London Marathons under his belt, there’s no keeping up with him.

Al Campbell

Brand Strategy

Al Campbell

Having worked closely with Paul for over 25 years, Al puts his extensive experience to work helping Space formulate game-changing brand strategy for clients.

Al’s also a talented gardener, fearless cook, and plays hockey at senior international level for Wales. Somebody has to.

Dan Osman

Design Director

Dan Osman

A versatile, integrated designer with a focus on user interfaces, putting his skills to work on digital projects across many accounts.

Dan’s on the go in his free time too. He hits the weights five times a week and thinks nothing of flipping tyres and scaling trees on his regular 12k “Obstacle” runs. We don’t stand in his way.

Gerald Davies

Account Director

Gerald Davies

Gerald works closely with some of Space’s most valued clients, spending time on site to support seamless project delivery.

Cycling is Gerald’s other great love – his bike takes him far and wide. He’s even cycled to Holland before now. At least he chose a nice flat country.

John Bartholomew

Project Director

John Bartholomew

John’s been successfully managing mission-critical technical projects, like site builds and platform migrations, with Space clients for over three years now.

Weekends see more heavy lifting as John pursues a punishing schedule of running, swimming, triathlon – and even a relaxing round of golf now and then.

Mike Pink

Head of Development

Mike Pink

Ever met a one-man tech radar? You have now. Mike’s our go-to-guy for updates on all the latest technology – and how to put it to work for Space clients.

Mike’s a bit of an all-rounder outside work too – along with half marathons and distance runs to keep his body in shape, he does the same for his mind by programming games and iOS applications.

Jon Hindle

Senior Project Manager

Jon Hindle

Jon’s a detail-oriented manager, whose Agile credentials and experience helps Space deliver complex client projects on time and on budget.

It could be this obsession with good time-keeping that fuels Jon’s passion for watch-collecting, though we can’t fathom where his love of cars comes from, since he doesn’t even drive one.
