TALK  THINK  CREATE

We’re a bunch of clever, creative and committed people who love what we do and we want to do more of it… for you

For many, Tammy is the first contact with Axon and we love her friendly, ‘can do’ nature and her cool Melbourne style. She looks after Lisa and Ellen and is always calm, unflappable and an expert in everything from finding out about the latest bar and restaurant openings to keeping up to speed with constant diary changes. Things run very smoothly with Tammy around…

Finance Manager
Upexa is bright and bubbly and… Read More >

Upexa is bright and bubbly and manages to keep smiling while she prepares client budgets, looks after invoicing, handles online time sheets, prepares contracts and generally keeps our costs in check. She’s incredibly organised (as proved by planning her wedding with a massive 600 guests!).

Senior Finance Manager
Sonia has worked at Axon since… Read More >

Sonia has worked at Axon since our very early days and she’s one of the vital cogs in keeping the company running. She looks after our cash flow, credit cards, budgets, payroll, expenses and VAT returns (we don’t envy her as these are all big tasks!). She’s modest, down to earth and caring. And, as if balancing our books wasn’t enough hard work, she’s also been studying Human Resource Management for two years. She passed with flying colours and can now use Assoc CIPD after her name.

Art Director

Holly is super creative, super nice and always brings something new to the party. She leads projects, motivates others and is bursting with ideas – everything she produces is carefully thought through, cleverly designed and looks amazing too. She’s always up for a challenge and she’s
a cheery, chatty person to have buzzing round the office, especially on those long, hectic days.

Director

Lisa has the biggest contacts book we’ve ever seen. She’s worked everywhere that’s worth its salt, from Elle, Red, New Woman and More to Elle Decoration and Heat… and now Axon! With 20 years’ experience under her belt, she’s a master at building relationships and driving innovation. And, as if that weren’t enough, she’s got great expertise in developing digital strategies. She was Head of Partnerships at Tech City UK and Digital Director at Mama & Company, heading up website and app development and digital and email marketing for the likes of the Hammersmith Apollo, Kentish Town Forum, Jazz Café and Lovebox.

Art Director
Richard knows M&S inside out, having… Read More >

Richard knows M&S inside out, having worked with them for more than a decade. That makes him a resident expert on their brand, their style, their photography, their typography and everything else about them. You’ll have seen his handiwork on every catalogue, magazine and app we’ve made for M&S. Yes, he’s been busy.

Group Editor
Charley creates fresh and fun content… Read More >

Charley creates fresh and fun content for great brands like M&S, Space.NK, Tesco F&F and Hammerson. She’s edited Superdrug Dare magazine and knows all there is to know about beauty, haircare and fashion. But she also has a way with words – she writes copy that’s friendly, down to earth, engaging and lively (just like her).

Picture Editor
Graham handles tens of thousands of… Read More >

Graham handles tens of thousands of images every year and makes sure each and every one looks absolutely perfect. He organises them, manages approvals, preps them for repro and is an expert picture researcher too. He’s worked at all the big magazines and websites like Grazia, Esquire and vogue.com. He knows how to make us laugh too, which helps on dreary Mondays.

Assistant Shoot Producer
Stephanie is an expert at organising… Read More >

Stephanie is an expert at organising shoots (and we all know that great photography takes loads of planning). Working closely with Sam, our Head Shoot Producer, she’s always on the ball. She’s worked client side at M&S as Publications Coordinator, so she knows exactly what it takes to make magazines and catalogues that really work.

Head of Shoot Production
Sam makes shoots happen – she… Read More >

Sam makes shoots happen – she seeks out the best locations, finds the most talented people from photographers to models (it helps that she used to be a model booker), manages the merchandisers, handles the budgets, organises every last detail meticulously and, because she’s always cool and collected, keeps everyone happy on
the shoot.

Art Director
Zoe has just joined us from… Read More >

Zoe has just joined us from Red, where she’s been revamping the living section of the magazine. She’s worked for all of our favourite magazines – Donna Hay, Australian Vogue, Inside Out and GQ – art directing shoots, styling and creating inspirational designs across print and digital. She’s enjoying life in the UK (she was born here, after all) but loves the relaxed Australian attitude towards life.

Senior Account Director
Natalie manages loads of different projects… Read More >

Natalie manages loads of different projects seamlessly and makes it all look easy. She’s always calm under pressure, which makes her just the sort of person everyone wants in their team, and she’s brilliant at multitasking. She’s also got masses of experience with brands including Harrods, John Lewis, Laura Ashley, Asda, Heal’s, Malmaison and Hotel du Vin, so she appreciates exactly what clients want.

Account Manager
Melissa’s job is all about talking… Read More >

Melissa’s job is all about talking – to clients and to everybody at Axon so they all know what’s happening, when and how. She’s a good communicator (clear, friendly and to the point – plus she listens). She also does house renovation projects in her spare time, which just goes to prove she’s great at managing people (whether they’re builders, clients or creatives).

Senior Account Director
Mini makes things happen. And we… Read More >

Mini makes things happen. And we all need people like that in our lives. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients get what they want (and, thanks to her proactive approach and innovative ideas, lots more besides). She’s worked with big names like Harrods, Woolworths, Tesco and, of course, M&S. And she has her finger very definitely on the pulse when it comes to retail
and digital.

Account Manager
Natasha’s our newest and youngest recruit… Read More >

Natasha’s our newest and youngest recruit (lucky her). She makes sure every project is delivered on time, on budget and on brand. All this sounds easy, but that’s because of her work behind the scenes to make sure everything stays on track and keeps ticking along perfectly. She’s worked in events management, so she’s organised and efficient (and knows how to throw a party).

Client Services Director
Lou is all about relationships and… Read More >

Lou is all about relationships and looks after our clients brilliantly. She knows exactly what brands should be doing to get a return on investment – and she loves helping them do it. With more than 20 years’ experience working with brands such as B&Q, DFS, Superdrug, Harvey Nichols, Land Rover and Volkswagen, she knows the industry better than anyone. An absolute expert, a true professional and she has bags of energy to go with it.

Finance Director
Charles was a partner at a… Read More >

Charles was a partner at a top 20 accountancy practice before retiring in 2013 to sail the North Atlantic in his 43ft boat! Now, ready for his next challenge in life,
he’s joined Axon to head up our finance department. Never one to sit still, he’s competed in ironman triathlons in Switzerland, Austria, France and Spain,
plus he’s run the London marathon six times, as well as competing in marathons
in New York, Berlin and Amsterdam. It’s still his dream to win one… which shows his ambition! At his day job he headed up the corporate finance department and specialised in company flotations and transaction support, so he’s a great person
to have on our team.

Art Director (Digital)
Oli knows his apps – and… Read More >

Oli knows his apps – and he produces award-winning ones. He’s not bad at print either! He’s got 15 years’ experience with brands like M&S, B&Q, DFS, Fastcar, T3, TFL and London Underground. He always stays relaxed under pressure – perhaps because he races cars in his spare time (and makes cider too). What more could you wish for?

Art Editor
Steve is an all-round good guy.… Read More >

Steve is an all-round good guy. We’d be lost without him. He designs pages quickly, makes sure every last detail is just right and he’s completely unflappable, even when we’re up against the clock. He’s worked all over the place, for brands including Debenhams, Asda, Laura Ashley and Early Learning Centre, and he did a spell down under before swapping Sydney for Shoreditch.

Managing Editor
Debra has decades of experience in… Read More >

Debra has decades of experience in editing, sub-editing and writing. She oversees all the pages we produce… yes, all of them. She’s got a great eye for detail (and you’re in safe hands as she knows all about clauses, pronouns and transitive verbs). She’s also a budding garden designer (pun intended). Some people get all the talent.

Art Director
Helen is one of the most… Read More >

Helen is one of the most industrious and inventive people we know. She’s a true hard worker who just gets it and she instinctively understands what looks good. She’s worked on Boots, John Lewis and just about every client Axon has ever had. She always says
yes because she’s a thoroughly nice,
obliging person and she somehow finds
time to design beautiful jewellery too.
A true creative.
