Head Honcho, The Big Cheese, The Top Dog, Boss Man, Chief: these are all terms we never use to refer to Chris, but the implication is clear – he runs things at the Nettl of Gloucester studio.
He’s the oldest – sorry most experienced – marketer in the office, and for years has been providing solutions for businesses online and offline. He knows how best to structure and populate your website, and he can tell you how many grams you need – in the innocent world of print, that is.
He also has 3 chickens, 2 daughters and 1 camp cat. Oh, and a wife.
Ian is by no means your typical designer, but he does possess these familiar characteristics: the latest software at his disposal, a keen eye for detail, his own worst critic, and a strong dislike for Comic Sans. Touching his Mac screen is also considered sacrilege.
As an Apple loyalist, seldom will you know of any new products or updates before him. Hand-in-hand with Adobe Creative Suite, he crafts some of the most aesthetically pleasing graphics for our clients.
We often joke at his inability to crack a smile in photos, but he’s just as jolly as the rest of us really.
Angel, as with most coders, is the unsung hero in the studio. The seamless navigation and user experience on our websites can be attributed to her expert and passionate coding abilities. Her work demands some serious concentration, and two monitors – of which the rest of us are all jealous of.
When she is not busy at work bringing websites to life with a complex array of code, or talking in a geek language the rest of us pretend to understand, she is looking after her beloved Chihuahua, Pica.
Her other interests include creating pixel art, gaming and zombies.
Vicky is one of our resident graphic designers, having worked with Absolute whilst still studying design at College. Vicky loves to let her creativity flow with a good logo design and branding. Whatever creative juices actually are, Vicky has lots. She’s the other major mac-advocate in the office.
As well as creating some eye-catching designs as part of the Nettl team, one of her finest achievements came when she was at college – creating some rather fetching and award winning pant designs for the Pants to Poverty charity.
Josh has ventured into territory that no other Gloucester Nettl’er has dared tread – the ever-expanding world of 3D modelling. That’s why, whenever he completes some work, you’ll often find the rest of us crowded around his desk, marvelling at these virtual spaces he creates.
Despite dedicating a lot of his time to virtual craftsmanship, he is also a graphic designer and a website designer. Where does it all this creativity stem from? We put it down to his love of gaming, anime, drawing – and also being fuelled by a strong coffee.
Lily Mizen is a designer with passion, bringing skills such as a working knowledge of InDesign, a keen eye for detail, and an artistic flair big enough to make any artist turn their head to our table. The only downside to this mild mannered member of our time is that she struggles with the kettle!
Lily’s drive to learn new things is unchallenged and has enabled her to become a template creating expert. And if you think that’s impressive, you should see her portfolio created through her years studying graphic design in college!
Natalie, the “insane in the membrane” Marketing Apprentice is the Queen of all things Four Gates of Gloucester, the Social Enterprise website promoting local businesses and events run by the big cheese himself and local shop owner Ivan Truscott.
Known as the “Nutty” one in the office she utilizes her gift of the gab and people skills- networking with the local community with the aim of promoting all things within the Four Gate Streets of our historic City Centre.
Proudly the team therapist and Cheerleader, she is as approachable as an enthusiastic Gandhi, “Go Go Nettl Rangers!!”.
As the older person in the team he brings many years of experience and skills from a multitude of various industries… yet with one main goal as his mantra then and now – to achieve the best for his clients and the team he works with.
Brett; when not enjoying time with his family, can be found painting or gaming, unless Chewbacca the cat has decided he wants to play fight.
Meet & Greet. Security. Chief Snoozer.
Snowy was to TinTin, what Hooch was to Turner, what Pica is to Angel. Every hero needs their accomplice and Pica plays this stealth secret agent role perfectly in our Nettl studio.
Excelling in his roles of receptionist, security enhancer/enforcer and chief cosy-snoozer, he’s not the least productive staff member we’ve known. If you ignore his sit-up-and-beg approaches (usually for a share of your lunch) you’re underestimating his innocent, calm deminer. At your peril. Now, what is it they say about a dog being like their owner?..
Nettl of Cheltenham
Incorporating Rimano Promotional Merchandise
We work very closely with the guys in our neighbouring Cheltenham studio, which is handy for you if you love us but are based in Cheltenham!
Sharing work, staff and of course love between two offices means that you can get to meetings with us easier and get the service that you want closer to home. And we do love a good cup of coffee over there!
These guys are just fantastic! They produced a brilliant website for me and are a pleasure to deal with. Efficient, affordable and professional – I can’t speak highly enough of them. They are so good I am hoping they can do another website for me shortly! I would highly recommend them so get involved with the guys at Nettl!
Very reasonable with pricing for such a professional look – and very easy to work with.
A tight team that has supported Shaun of the Dead LIVE! since its inception. Their attention to details is absolute and creative, ready to find solutions to everything we need and most importantly fast! Thank you guys!
