Mark Bramwell

Founder & Creative Director
 

Lynne Bramwell

Finance Director
 

Mark founded Mono Design in 1986 as a sole trader using traditional ink, pen and paste-up skills. As creative director Mark oversees the creative output of the studio and uses every opportunity to offer and receive feedback in order to nurture the creativity of the other designers. As well as key areas of expertise in branding, corporate identity, brochures, advertising and exhibitions, Mark works closely with clients on their internal communications, finding ways of presenting information in a timesaving and easy-to-understand format. 

Lynne handles all financial aspects of the business. Under Lynne’s direction, we have developed our client base to include several national and international businesses in the manufacturing and agricultural sectors, as well as a strong public sector focus in health and local government.

Lily

Office Pooch
 

Lily has been part of the team for the past six years, and when she's not busy watching nature documentaries on the iPad, you'll find her barking at the postman or picking out the perfect sunny spot to take a nap in the studio. If you have a squirrel that needs chasing or a treat that needs eating, she's definitely the one to go to. All correspondence via her PA, Mark Bramwell.
