People

Here at MG, we’re proud to stand on the shoulders of giants. Whether they’re design titans, digital heavyweights or cultural goliaths, we’ve all been influenced by others to dream big and produce the best work for our clients. Take a look at our gallery of giants and who inspires us on a daily basis.

If you’re wondering about our job titles, they’re inspired by the stories we love to tell. Our Dream Weavers and Magic Makers, as project managers and client services, are regularly pulling rabbits out of hats for our clients, whilst our Dreamers and Magicians design beautiful work to meet all of our client needs. Got a question about us? Drop us a message to find out more about what we all get up to each day.

“Alan Fletcher’s vast body of work and legacy of the D&AD is testament alone to one of the UK’s greatest designers. To me, his book ‘The Art of Looking Sideways’ is visual communication at its best.”

“Ricky Gervais is bold, hilarious and a born entertainer. An actor, writer, director and producer – Gervais has created some iconic film and TV, by never being afraid of territory where others fear to go.”
