We are Toby Pike & Piotr (Pete) Stopniak and we [ ... ].

..have been trying to avoid a definition for a substantial chunk of our career but 'design directors' seems to come close.
In essence we're a creative team for hire and since creativity is in itself an elusive beast to define we're happy with this vague definition.

We lean on our creative brains to fill this vagueness when creative solutions are what you're after.

If you require someone to finely craft your idea, to make it shine, then we have brains and digits for that also!

 

We design, direct, imagine and develop ideas that look their best and communicate most.

We’ve built sets, welded framework, wired installations, rigged infrared cameras,
made typography out of plants, photo scanned pretty girls,
been covered in chocolate milk and coloured chalk (but not at the same time),
made sand explosions, made real explosions (with adult supervision).
We even built some furniture (without adult supervision).

All because we love making ‘things’ and sometimes the art is in the ‘making’.

We are Toby And Pete and we want to make something awesome for you.
