WE ARE A Creative Partnership


Left Bridge is the creative partnership of Gillian and Mark, design experts who have been crafting brand communications for over 20 years.


We work together as Left Bridge and individually on projects as per the expertise required.

The future web design, advertising and graphic design service is fast, flexible and agile. We combine our skill sets with a group of specialist freelancers in the South West, a network that enables us to cherry pick expertise around the needs of your project. It also keeps costs low and service level high.



Graphic designer, visual refiner, business strategist.

With many years of experience in commercial design, my passion for conceptual graphic design led naturally to digital website experiences. Brand communications and user experience now drive my design concepts for brands big and small.

I talk straight, operate with honesty and transparency, always striving to be a valuable part of your team, fully invested in the growth and success of your company.



Designer, event organiser, creative art worker.

I have spent over 25 years working at numerous design and advertising agencies, always learning, organising and boosting team morale. I strive to bring honesty and openness to all working relationships and have worked on accounts from The Body Shop and Lonely Planet to local restaurants and everything in between.

I love (trying to) speak Spanish and being in nature with my camera, enjoying the mindfulness it brings. Travel, exploring and yoga are my bag but not all at the same time.


Four reasons to work with us:


1. Good design is good business

We have a passion for creating marketing and advertising that hits home to your current and future customers. This creates an opportunity to explain your service and tell your story. As freelancers and business partners we have experience of working at some of the largest global design agencies as well as setting up and running agencies in the South West of the UK. We impress with creative and strategic know-how to advise companies on creating great visual communications.

2. High-impact, low-cost design.

Our day and hourly rate are low as we understand not all businesses can afford to pay agency rates. We use well-proven processes to deliver your work on time and to budget making sure that it’s precisely what you need – smart visual designs, user-friendly layouts, eye-catching images and spot-on messages to keep your consumers engaged – and coming back.

3. We give jargon-free advice.

For the duration of the project, we make it our aim to understand your business and to plug in fast to your priorities. We speak plain English, avoid technical jargon and always give sound, no-nonsense advice for the benefit of your business and, of course, your customers. Jargon-free clear brand communications help entice further investigation, like the shop window that draws you inside.


4. Up-front honesty.

We don't fill team pages with fake staff, and we don’t spend your money on swanky offices and boardrooms, but instead utilise a committed network of partners from the South West who have worked with us for years. We gather expertise around the needs of your project and pass on the savings to you. 


We would love a constructive chat, whatever you need or budget. If we can't help, we can point you in the right direction.
