We’re extremely pleased to report Freestone Creative has made it into the well-respected trade publisher ‘Design Week top 100 agencies’ list.

Focus on team member #2

wendy on the stairs at the RAContinuing along the theme of looking at team members’ lives outside of the studio (frankly being a bit nosey).
