Martin Higham

Production Director

“Just because you need something quickly and to a budget, doesn’t mean it can’t also be great.”

With a background in mechanical engineering and transport design, I spent the first few years of my career working in Logistics for IT companies. The role exposed me to some of the biggest names in the field at the time, such as Ericsson and Fujitsu.

My next career move was as a Graphic Designer, where my role evolved to see me set up a full service design studio. I then decided to go freelance, gaining invaluable experience in web development, animation and production.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked for a host of clients such as Microsoft, Apple, AstraZeneca, Ocean Spray and Asics. The opportunity to join Parker Design came along and I jumped at the chance. From day one it was clear that the agency was the perfect fit for me. Instrumental in the growth of Parker Design in the last few years, I’m always keen to learn and develop, and I’ve brought new skills to the agency that have contributed to the expansion of our service offering.

Whether it’s print and web services, animation, video, digital and interactive work, I really have seen it all! As Production Director, I’m closely involved in planning large campaigns, and I also manage external and internal resources to ensure the quality of work delivered is exactly what our clients expect, and more.

Away from the studio, I have a passion for photography and spending time modifying and tinkering with my car. My love of cars started at an early age: my dad participated in rallies before I was born, and I’m told my first word when I was a baby was “car”. I’m also a keen cyclist, and the engineer in me comes out when I build my own bikes (I’m on number 4 at the moment). I also love a good walk in the forest with Magnus, my Alaskan Malamute, the SAS of the dog world.
