Who We Are

Key People

Comma is a collective of marketing, design and communications professionals who have a combined experience of more than 30 years working with the third sector, education and social enterprises.

It started after a group of creatives wanted to make sure redundancy wasn’t a full stop to working together. The team started working together at a social good organisation which later joined a charity. After being made redundant they had the bright idea to join up and share their creativity and business acumen with more social good organisations and causes.

With a vast network of professionals who are skilled in every area you could need to promote your organisation, there is no job too big or complex for Comma to help with.
