Who We Are

Key People

We Are Comma is a collective of marketing, design and communications professionals who have a combined experience of more than 30 years working with a wide variety of organisations including 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 We Are Comma to help with.
