the onside team

a truly ‘hands-on’ design team


Formed by Dave Black and Mark Johnson in 2006 to create the kind of service and level of creativity normally only associated with larger agencies.

As business lead at onside, Dave’s experience in marketing and design and ability to combine a variety of creative and technical skills, make him the perfect foil for Mark’s supreme creative talents. Mark’s vast industry experience tied with his unparalleled eye for creative design makes him an ideal creative lead.

Other core team members include Dave O’Mara, a Senior Designer equally at home with printed or digital projects, John Page who manages our lifestyle and manufacturing accounts as well as having a large involvement in creative briefings, strategy, consultancy, copywriting, SEO and Adwords and Ian Wilding, our Senior Developer who’s ability to craft bespoke systems around our designs gives us the edge when realising digital projects and complex backend systems.
