Glorious Creative is an independent design agency situated in the heart of Manchester's vibrant Northern Quarter. When established in 2002, founding partners, Mark Ross and Tom Shaughnessy had a very simple philosophy: ensure the designer is at the very core of the process.
The philosophy was developed whilst working in large agencies in London, Edinburgh, Singapore and Manchester alongside design managers and project managers. Mark and Tom wanted to simplify the lines of communication to provide benefit to the client. They truly believed the design directors – the key individuals primarily responsible for the creative output of the agency – should lead all projects from inception to completion, bringing simplicity and clarity to the lines of communication and therefore ensuring the most appropriate and effective creative outcome for all projects undertaken, large or small.
This approach to business still holds true today, removing the potential for misunderstanding, overly complicated processes, duplication of time and ultimately ensuring value for money. Furthermore, the design directors are complemented by Jeff Edis, an ex ad-man who spent over 35 years in advertising as a writer, creative director and managing director before joining Glorious Creative to provide management support and strategic thinking.
