Neil is the founder of PLANarama. He loves nothing better than pushing boundaries and exploring new territory.
Originally a research scientist with a Biotechnology Degree, Neil could have seen out his days locked up in a lab somewhere, a man in a white coat, with glitter only in his heart.
When he’s not working you’ll find him at the gym or at a party, enjoying life.

Sabina is Neil’s right hand person, heading up the Project Managers and overseeing the operational running of PLANarama. She studied Textiles and Public Art at Chelsea Art College.
Sabina is the type of person who can be trusted with anything, even our deepest secrets. If she didn’t love her job so much she would probably be off traveling in some faraway place.

We’ve thought about placing Ben at the door at night to scare away potential intruders but gave that idea the chop. Ben has a Degree in 3D Design and won the Young Professional Designer of the Year.
When he’s not meeting clients, briefing designers or ensuring production is running smoothly, Ben is likely to be found playing football or boxing.

Jean ended up working in the wonderful world of window display after completing a ceramics degree and an MA in Design from Central St. Martin’s College in London.

Kay holds the proud position of being the first employee of PLANarama. Even though she now does the sums for PLAN she was ‘once upon a time’ quite creative and studied Art & Design at college.
Away from work she enjoys looking after her little girl and (when she has time!) gardening, watching movies and eating cake. She is currently learning Portuguese.

Georgios likes colouring-in. He’s so cool you don’t even have to pronounce the last letter of his name! He’s got a degree in Visual Design & Display and a diploma in Interior Design.
He has the best equipped pencil case you’ve ever seen and can apparently do a mean impression of a slug. Don’t ask.

OFFICE MANAGER / PA
Although Isobel is doing an administrative role she is a ‘creative’ at heart and has a degree in Fashion Photography.
Career wise she has done a bit of everything and has been described as a ‘Renaissance Woman’ in the past! (Most bizarre job to date – peeling shallots with a Stanley knife in Australia for the grand sum of 48 cents a kilo!) Isobel has a good sense of humour and probably talks a bit too much.
