…and just look at all that amazing hair, too (well, nearly all).
Mark Tomkins has been in the design business for the last 30 years and formed Aubergine back in 2002 with his wife, Bekki. He is the man with a plan and has a design solution for everything. Having worked in both large London agencies and smaller, localised design companies before setting up Aubergine, Mark brings a huge wealth of experience working with brands and getting the best from your marketing campaign.
Matt is responsible for project planning and our search team - if there's data and a spreadsheet, he'll be involved. His previous experience is in senior management and media strategy for one of the world's largest advertising groups.
Bekki Tomkins has been in the design business for 18 years and is the co-founder of Aubergine with her husband, Mark. She has a great design head on her shoulders and has a meticulous eye for detail. When it comes to packaging and retail product design, Bekki’s skills are exemplary.
Helen is our Project Manager and keeps us all on track with her hyper-organised approach to tasks small and large.
Joe Mayhew is our web developer extraordinaire. He can make a website do quite literally anything (well… almost). He works with robotic speed and precision while maintaining his chilled-out demeanour as the creatives pass him ever more complex designs to make live on the internet!
Mark is Aubergine's Chair, and makes sure the directors are on the ball and looking after all elements of the business. He also speaks to our clients after projects are finished, in his capacity as overseer of quality control and after-sales service.
Matthew joined Aubergine as an apprentice developer and has since qualified to become an integral part of our web development team. We regularly remind him that the reason we hired him is his magnificent hair.
Shane is our creative machine, crunching through design work whilst retaining a creative flair. Shane's record for open tabs on Chrome and Illustrator runs into the 000's.
Steph joined as Aubergine's first apprentice and was such a success that we committed to apprenticeships to grow the Aubergine business. The only technical problem that Steph can't solve is how to time her dash through the closing car park barrier.
Susanna is a published author and journalist who splits her time at Aubergine between search analysis & reporting and content creation & editing.
