If you're looking for a graphic designer, get in touch with Andrew Stott from Storm Nine!
He's been MD of Storm Nine for the past 5 years and before that had a long and distinguished career in the automotive industry working with some of the top brands. Although Storm Nine offers a range of services including digital marketing and social media, he has the graphic design seat in our chapter.
"Andrew says that everything he does is for his son Nicholas!"
At the time of writing this, Nicholas is 8 years old and it's lovely to see that dedication from father to son. Andrew loves Motorsport, riding motorbikes, football and golf when he gets the time. Being an ex-biker myself, I was giggling at him the other day for only having a 600cc sports bike when I used to have a 1000cc one, but I agree that when you're living on a Caribbean island with limited stretches of tarmac, you could never open something so big up, so 600cc was good enough for him. He does wish he'd bought an adventure bike to the island as he could have ridden it on the beaches too.
He has lived in Sharnbrook for the past 10 years and when I asked him what he sees in his future he replies, "I want to retire at 50 then spend 6 months in the UK and the other six in the Caribbean". A worthy goal indeed.
Something not many people know about Andrew is that he is also the Operations Director for a very wealthy family and looks after their UK interests for them. Gosh, who'd have thought that? Certainly makes him incredibly trustworthy in my eyes.
When it comes to graphic design, Andrew says that, "The secret to a successful brand is to focus your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new". He goes onto to say that, "The challenge is relevance, attraction, consistency and creating something more memorable, long-lasting, and shareable. And that the answer is always, "It all starts with an idea".
Andrew works closely with all of Storm Nine's clients to really understand who they are so he and his team can give them exactly what they want and more. "Keep it simple, listen to the client and work hard", says Andrew.
That's definitely something we can all strive for.
Until next time ...
