When you hire a marketing agency, their team becomes an extension of yours. Whilst you're likely to choose an agency based on what they offer, it's always important to have an idea of who you'll be working with on this new phase of your business.
Team Bloom is an eclectic mixture of scientists, journalists, designers and analysts passionate about making the world a greener place. In the notion of being authentic, you'll be introduced to Team Bloom through my eyes - the copywriter whose words you've already read across the site.
Stu gets very excited about data. You'll often hear an 'a-ha' or 'hmm' coming from his desk whilst he looks through the masses of data we pull together for our clients and analyses how their customers work.
Before setting up Creative Bloom with Jimmy, his job titles have included Digital Marketer, Finance Manager, Commercial Lead and Project Manager on a wide range of product and service related projects across the world.
Stu's avidly against the over-excessive need for plastic and last year went 6 weeks without plastic. This is just one of the many environmental issues he's fighting for - he works with Surfer's Against Sewage too.
Another thing to know about Stu: when he's not surfing the web or the data we've uncovered from it, he's surfing real waves.
Jimmy (or, 'James', as his business card states) is that guy you'd want in your pub quiz team - if that quiz was tailored to environmental science. He began his career in ecology and conservation, but soon evolved into a communicator, due to his ability to explain complicated scientific theories to anyone.
His life before bloom includes a vast array of eco-design and creative marketing consultancy multi-million pound companies across the world.
You'll often see him talking about eco-design and marketing green businesses at conferences and talks across London and Brighton.

Did I mention he likes cycling?
Ollie is often diving headfirst into PPC Campaigns in Ad Words & Facebook. You might also see him spending a lot of time deep in spreadsheets analysing insights and detecting gaps to help outperform client competitors.
Being creative wherever he can, he also enjoys getting stuck into website design and user experience optimisation - all this is usually fuelled by a few coffees a day.
Yet, beneath his masterful exterior lies a musician - who plays more instruments than I remember.
With a background in Illustration and Graphic Design, Caitlin's passions lie in helping clients make that great first impression with fresh designs and content that aims to leave an impact.
When she's not clicking away on Photoshop or Illustrator, you can find her tucked in a corner, working on some sort of crafty project. You'll never know if she'll emerge with a whittled spoon one day or a ceramic plant pot the next.
As her name suggests, she'll always be up for a catch up over a pint and a veggie roast!
