Hello

We are a small team with a balance of creative talent and production expertise; with a network of trusted freelance skills to support and scale when needed. Check out our job blog for the latest vacancies.

Mark Donkin

Director

With over 20 years experience in sales and marketing, Mark’s philosophy is to create a brand built on exceptional customer service and employee satisfaction. Having spent many years selling technology solutions for Oracle and Sun Microsystems, he understands the challenges sales and marketing face.

Karl Horton

Creative Director

With far too many years’ experience to mention in the creative industry, Karl has worked across B2B, B2C and public sector, as well as co-owning his own business. Karl tends to all things creative within SuccessFlow Create, as well as providing consultancy on content strategy and persona development. He is as at home with a pencil as he is with a Mac, less so with the kettle—but Tom makes such a good cuppa (KH)

Karl can often be seen strutting about the office in his flowery shirt and leopard print Jeffery West’s. When not strutting around the office his time is taken up managing his puppy’s Instagram account (@shibaleeloo #shamelessplug).

From motorbikes to mountain bikes, he prefers two wheels to four, although not so good for transporting the family about! His sports of choice are cricket, karate and badminton, and occasionally a shocking round of golf!

Q&A

— What are your pet peeves?
Bad kerning!

— You’re stood at the bar, what do you buy?
An Old Fashioned, failing that a nice single malt.

— Which animal are you in the Chinese zodiac?
Dragon 😀

— Favourite music band/artist?
Completely depends on mood, my Spotify playlist ranges from Pink Floyd to David Guetta.

— What did you want to be when you grew up?
Fighter pilot. I feel the need. The need for speed! Maybe I just had a teenage crush on Kelly McGillis!

— Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?
My professional answer would probably be something like, Julian Opie, Saul Bass and Rankin, but for a more casual affair, it would be Tim Minchin, Noel Fielding and Paloma Faith.

— What’s the last box set you binged on?
The last complete sets were Silicon Valley and American Gods. Currently watching Westworld.

— What was the last book you read?
I’d like to say something deep and meaningful like Ulysses or Wild Swans, but I don’t get chance to read much. The last book was 'When you dead, you dead', by Guy Martin and currently reading James Acaster’s Classic Scrapes.

Tom Wycks

Production Director

Tom oversees digital production, from concept through to design. He love’s working with our talented creative team and aims to give them all they need to produce fantastic content for our clients.

His experience to date ranges from running his own startup to managing large-scale multinational projects. Tom takes pleasure in working with people and getting them excited about their work.

When Tom’s not in the office, you can find him spending time with his young family. Consisting of, toddler, Oscar who keeps him on his toes and their latest arrival Arthur who is still hasn’t worked out that night time is sleep time. Any spare time is spent cycling, playing football and catching up with friends.

Q&A

— What are your pet peeves?
Lateness really annoys me – but I am sometimes late, so I do get mad at myself.

— You’re stood at the bar, what do you buy?
Probably just a lager. I am not a complicated person – nothing trendy just a Heineken and I’m happy.

— Which animal are you in the Chinese zodiac?
Dog

— Favourite music band/artist?
This is a tough one to narrow down – I have a massive list – if pushed for an answer, I would say Oasis, Beatles, Bowie, Pink Floyd, Paul Weller and Bob Dylan (sorry Cat Stevens).

— What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a footballer but probably knew that wasn’t going to happen from the age of 7, so focused on Digital Production from then on.

— Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?
Julian Lennon, think he is an interesting guy – we can get on to his Dad at the end of the evening, David Bowie and George Harrison. It is a karaoke-themed night, but I am not letting anyone else sing.

— What’s the last box set you binged on?
Friends, I know right—welcome to 1998. But it came up on Netflix and it is the only programme that me and the Mrs don’t argue over.

— What was the last book you read?
The Man who fell to Earth - a great read. I would recommend it to anyone, and it just reminded me of Bowie – who of course played the main character in the film adaptation.

Mark Collins

Senior Designer

Mark is a designer with many years experience in a wide range of sectors, including B2B, B2C, third sector and exhibition design – enjoying all the challenges that come with creating something new and bespoke for a range of clients and purposes. He’s at his happiest when solving a design quandary, and has a love for typography, minimalism and written prose.

When he’s not at a Mac, he can found wandering the hills, riding his road bike or with his head in a book. Regularly undertaking long distance and multi-day hikes across various parts of the globe, or any other adventure that offers a sense of freedom (which roughly translates as ‘giving his brain a holiday’).

Q&A

— What are your pet peeves?
Littering – either ejecting from a moving vehicle or a sly drop from the pocket, both are unforgivable.

— You’re stood at the bar, what do you buy?
A strong IPA will do nicely, cheers.

— Which animal are you in the Chinese zodiac?
Dog – I’m happy with that.

— Favourite music band/artist?
An impossible task – but I could maybe narrow it down to Wire, The Durutti Column, George Harrison, Radiohead, Orange Juice, Woods, Mazzy Star and The Fall…

— What did you want to be when you grew up?
A park ranger or explorer – but I had to be a designer as I have a vivid imagination and love creating things.

— Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?
I don’t have dinner parties, but let’s call it a book club supper, and I’ll invite authors Jack London, John Steinbeck and Richard Brautigan (or Kurt Vonnegut) representing the imaginative, poetic and the absurd.

— What’s the last box set you binged on?
Mr Robot – psychological, with themes of identity, revolution and change.
A sign of the times.

— What was the last book you read?
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov – an allegorical novel about the devil turning up in Moscow and causing all sorts of chaos. Historical, dark humoured and full of madness. Yes!

Leeloo

Mascot

Evey office needs a four-legged friend. Although only occasionally visiting the office, she does love a cuddle with Cathryn. Leeloo (yes, named after Milla Jovovich's character in Luc Besson's The Fifth Element) is a Japanese Shiba Inu, and full of life (after 11am – she's not a morning dog!)

She lives with her hooman, our Creative Director, and her older brother-from-another-mother, Moby (cat). Leeloo loves walks in the park, snow, swimming and is working on an extensive collection of sticks.

Q&A

— What are your pet peeves?
Being told off for chasing the cat 🙁

— You’re stood at the bar, what do you buy?
Do they do Puppaccino's?? If not, we're off to Starbucks!

— Which animal are you in the Chinese zodiac?
Apparently a Rooster, why am I not a dog!?

— Favourite music band/artist?
I love listening to The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, so I would have to say fresh rock and guitar-based music.

— What did you want to be when you grew up?
I'm not going to grow up, will always be a puppy!

— Which three people would you invite to a dinner party?
My two best friend Dot Dog and Charlie, and Lassie (my hero).

— What’s the last box set you binged on?
Blue Planet – I do like fishes!

— What was the last book you read?
Read or ate?
