With over 20 years of experience in London based design and advertising agencies, Kate Gorringe has been appointed as Creative Director of Mr B & Friends. Kate has an enviable list of past and current clients including Lloyds TSB, JustGiving, AXA, Principality, Siniat and Sainsbury’s and brings to the role a strong blend of conceptual thinking grounded in commercial good sense. She is well known for creating brand identities and integrated campaigns that work hard across every media, particularly digital, and will be leading and mentoring a six strong creative team.

Kate comments, "there is a palpable sense of creative intelligence and energy about Mr B & Friends underpinned by a strident feeling of ambition and a 'can do' attitude that makes this a very special place to work."

The agency is also appointing long-standing staff member Sheena Mistry to the role of Design Director. Over the six years that she has worked for Mr B & Friends Sheena has fine-tuned her brand identity skills by taking the lead on a number of high profile rebrands, including Suffolk Life, TrekAmerica, Greenergy, Bristol City Community Trust, UK Active and Fourpure Brewing Co.

Meanwhile, agency partner Steve Richardson, will be stepping up to the role of Executive Creative Director, allowing him to spend more time in steering the creative and strategic direction for clients.

Richardson says, "we have a very strong creative output at Mr B & Friends and continually win pitches over bigger London agencies with star studded client lists, much to their chagrin. We have built an enviable reputation regionally and are beginning to compete seriously on a national level for plum branding jobs - our two new appointments will enable us to take the agency to a whole new level."
