About Big Bear Creative

Founders Story…


Hi, I’m Emma 🙂 I started Big Bear Creative in 2016 after having my son, as I was in search of a better work-life balance. I had over 10 years experience of working in design studios and award winning agencies, and wanted to do things a little differently with my own business.

The first year was such a success that my husband soon joined the Big Bear team, bringing with him expertise in web design and digital marketing.

My background is in magazine and editorial design, and I have worked on everything from luxury property and lifestyle titles, to fashion and beauty magazines. I’m also lucky enough to have worked on a wide variety of projects through my agency work, with both big name brands and some exciting startups and small businesses. I have experience in many areas of graphic design and a real passion for typography and logo design.

I love working with forward thinking business people and entrepreneurs, providing support and coming up with creative solutions to their design, branding and marketing problems. At Big Bear we believe in working with our clients, rather than for them – you’ll often find me working alongside clients at their offices to really get the best results for them.

Hello, I’m Dave and I am co director here at Big Bear Creative. 

After a great first year I found myself leaving the security of working for the BGL Group (home of Compare the Market & Beagle Street) as Senior Designer to work alongside my wife Emma and her awesome studio.

My background is in website and digital design, with specific expertise and interest in user psychology and behaviour so this really compliments Emma’s leadership in Graphic Design and Branding.

I love what I do for a living, I honestly feel I have the best job in the world. I love understanding how a businesses works and love finding ways to make a good business even better through digital design and marketing.

In my 17 year career I have worked for some of the leading UK businesses and top UK agencies and lead teams in some of the most cutting edge, forward thinking companies around.

I’d love to chat through your business and see how I could add value to your website or digital marketing.

I love talking about the following: User behaviour and psychology, digital marketing, Guitars and love a good conspiracy theory!
