Alison Clynes – Director and Marketing Fanatic

Alison ClynesAlison has worked in the marketing and advertising game for over 20 years on the client and agency side and set up Kinetic with husband Steve in 2007.

In that time she has worked on some of the biggest UK brands across consumer, business to business and the public sector including as Bupa, Littlewoods, MBNA. M&S and PC World Business.

The belief behind Kinetic is that the strategies and approaches used by large businesses and blue chip brands can be equally applied to small companies and organisations who for too long have had limited access to this type of thinking.

She is passionate about marketing and is a regular speaker locally, runs workshops and has also taught Marketing in Higher Education. Alison is also a keen blogger and believes that marketing shouldn’t be a ‘closed shop’ and that by educating SME businesses they will be able to make better marketing decisions and avoid costly mistakes.

Steven Clynes – Director and Design Ninja

Steven ClynesSteven has always worked in the design and advertising industry for many years, working his way up from artwork junior in a lead Manchester Advertising agency to Creative Group Head at Red C, an award-winning agency with big name clients throughout the UK.

With such a breadth of experience he has designed pretty much anything and everything from branding through to vehicle signage; from websites to mascots. He is a believer that everything, however small, benefits from great design and typography and, if you want to wind him up, just show him some poorly kearned type!

He has a great deal of experience on branding, not only in devising new brands but also in how to apply that branding across marketing materials.
