Pebble Studios expands its creative, design and production team

Following a successful year, we are excited to announce that we have brought on six new members to the Pebble Studios team. 

From creating 3D interactive videos for Symphony Talent and Nexans to producing a title sequence for Netflix, we’re really proud of how the team has adjusted to the new working from home reality.  We hope to build on our successes with an even bigger and stronger team.

Check out their creds below!

JOSEPH GOODALL

Mid-Weight Creative

“Ideation is my absolute passion and the reason I fell in love with the creative industry. I’m a solo creative working across all mediums from social to VR, and I’d consider myself a conceptual copywriter with a strong art directional instinct. I’m enthusiastic about working with positive impact brands, developing ideas that make people smile or teaches something meaningful. This is what makes Pebble a great fit for me, working with brands such as Sciex and The National Portrait Gallery with Artist, Zoe Law. 

Thanks to a diverse career history, working at agencies such as BBH and Ladbible, I have experience in a variety of mediums in both above and below-the-line, such as radio, press, OOH, film and CRM.”

 

DANIELLE SALT

Producer

“I graduated with a degree in Advertising Design at Huddersfield University. After university I found myself pursuing another passion in the wine industry, gaining my WSET level 3 in wine and spirits. Although I love wine (don’t we all), my desire to work in the creative industry brought me to the position as a project coordinator working across CGI and live-action, where I progressed to Producer. I’ve worked across a broad range of campaigns and clients gaining skills and knowledge in TV, digital and radio. 

In my spare time, I enjoy getting stuck into a gripping book, binge-watching Netflix series, cooking, a glass of wine with friends and the token Joe Wicks work out. “

Reason for joining Pebble Studios?

“The work Pebble creates really intrigued me with their broad range of clients, projects and expertise. I wanted to be part of an agency which is forward-thinking and keen to learn more, as well as being part of a great culture!”

 

WILL BENTLEY

Immersive Producer

I enjoy getting creative when possible, as that was how I started in the industry. Getting hands-on creating assets from videos to 3D – creating animations, VR/AR apps or small indie games.  I also used to be a lecturer at UAL teaching the practical part of the MA in Virtual Reality. I covered the gamification side as well as the 360 video capture and post-production elements of the course.  I‘m very much into my gaming and play a lot in my downtime. When not holding a controller, I do enjoy my sports – mainly rugby and American football both playing and watching.   Music is a big part of my life, whether I need a chill playlist at the end of the day or something heavy to smash out an assignment. 

Reason for joining Pebble Studios?

I have known about Pebble Studios for some time and been a fan of their work. It’s great to see what they have done in the past and am very fortunate to be part of the team to keep this great work going.”

 

NICK KOCH

Senior Digital Designer

With a decade of experience in the creative industry including Branding, Film & Animation and Graphic Design, my passion and speciality is in digital design, UX/UI and digital marketing.  Working for clients including the City of London, MCC & Lord’s Cricket Ground, Investec Wealth & Investment, Rory McIlroy Foundation and Queens University Belfast pride myself in creating a seamless creative experience for his clients, through research, ideation, design and delivery. 

Originally from Northern Ireland, I’m a keen sports enthusiast, who loves music and film having played the guitar since he was a teen and like any good Irishman is partial to a pint of the Black stuff.”

Reason for joining Pebble Studios?

“I’m really excited to join Pebble and work with the great creative talent in the team. I’m looking forward to growing the Digital UX offering within the business and help create the best creative solutions that work for our clients.”

 

LYDIA BEESLEY

Creative

My background is in fashion, having spent over 10 years working as a catwalk and editorial print model. I concurrently studied for a degree in Fashion Marketing, where I designed an application in my final year that was integrated with artificial intelligence, quite the innovation for 2014. This propelled my career into immersive technology, working as a creative at Happy Finish, and later Nexus Studios, where I was a creative lead on variety of immersive technology projects.  I really enjoy working on the challenging briefs, breaking them down and creating something new and innovative. 
 
Outside of work, I recently launched a lockdown business called Confined Creations where I design bespoke illustrations (@confinedcreations, Christmas is round the corner). I love spinning, miniature schnauzers and, contrary to popular opinion, Mumford and Sons.

Reason for joining Pebble Studios?

“I was really impressed with my interview process at Pebble. The passion that the team has for the business, and their variety of clients and projects. The agency culture seemed refreshingly cool and in line with some very important values, of which I am extremely excited to be a part of.

 

CHRIS WEYMAN-JONES

Senior Motion Graphics Designer

I started my career at MTV making promos and music videos, I then freelanced for major broadcasters such as Channel 4 and the BBC where I made lots of title sequences and in-programme graphics. I also have a broad experience of working on large corporate projects for clients such as BP. For the last couple of years, I have moved to predominantly work in 3D motion graphics creating work on high-end commercials for Sky.”

Reason for joining Pebble Studios?

“I joined Pebble because of the exciting opportunities to work with new clients in new exciting areas and also because of the possibility of working with VR, AR and 360 videos”
