  • Marketing Expert David Stokes

    David Stokes

    Senior Creative

    David got his first taste of Photoshop back in 1995 and has never looked back. After completing a degree in Automotive Engineering, during which he spent rather too much time in the Student Media centre, he began his design career freelancing for motorsport clients and spending many cold weekends taking photos trackside at Silverstone. David then entered the world of print, design and branding agencies and is new at the Pod for 2016. David splits his free time between decorating a house which will never be finished, creating stop motion animations from Lego and spending too much money on Italian road bikes; his wife is very tolerant.
  • Marketing Expert Kerrie Malone

    Kerrie Malone

    Account Executive

    Kerrie joined the Pod in March 2016. Since graduating with a degree in English in 2014, she has discovered a love of agency life and the closeness that comes with being in a small team. Kerrie is currently studying with the CIM, and she is enjoying putting what she learns into practice at the Pod. As an English nerd, her interests lie in content writing and planning. When not in the office, she can usually be found chasing around after her (rather mischievous) puppy Ollie, trying to pick up the clues in a crime novel, or watching Harry Potter for the 1000th time.
