A place for creative talent

Our main design office is based in the heart of Hereford. There’s such a diverse range of creative talent in the county and we’re fortunate to attract some of the best UK designers and engineers into the heart of Herefordshire. Kristo has always been passionate about ensuring there is a support structure in place for those new to the area so he began discussing this further. Our friends over at The Seed Group have also been encouraging creative talent to work and play here, which kickstarted a conversation on how we can grow our creative community. David from NMITE was invited into the discussions as it soon became clear that the engineers they attract also need like-minded people around them.

This led to the creation of Hereford Herd. Co-founded by Simple Design Works, The Seed Group and NMITE, it’s a  new way to get social with others who work in the same industry as you. It’s a place for you to seek support, mentorship and widen your social circle. Contact us if you would like to join the herd and we’ll add you to our dedicated LinkedIn group.
