David started Conkered after he decided he wanted to do something different with his life. He had already made plans to move to Scotland with his wife Fiona and their young family; Fiona is from The Highlands and his mother is Scottish so you could call it a homecoming.

Having worked as sales and marketing director in his successful family business for nine years; he couldn’t move the business to Scotland so had to think of alternative options. David started to speak to friends and colleagues about what he was planning; they shared his excitement for change and a new challenge. It was one of these conversations that sparked the idea to start Conkered, a friend said to him ‘why don’t you do what you’re doing now but for other people?’ they then added ‘I bet there are lots of businesses out there that need someone like you but can’t afford a full-time person in that role!’

David has grown Conkered into a small agency and now works with a range of clients across multiple sectors, providing a full range of design and branding solutions and sales and marketing services.

The team at Conkered has also grown in this time. In addition to Fiona who manages the Studio, David has built a tight knit team of Graphic Designers, Programmers, Photographers, videographers, and copywriters.

Conkered has a flexible structure that allows clients to commission big or small projects and still enjoy the personal service that David has become renowned for delivering. David has a proven track record of securing the right specialists for individual projects and has built-up an enviable network inside and outside the creative industries.
