Meet the team…
Craig

Designer, innovator, diplomat, bon vivant, Spurs fan and scarlettabbott’s first ever employee… meet Craig Bentley.

 

What makes me smile…
People telling me how good I am 😀
GIFS, peanut butter milkshakes, Spurs winning.

What makes me frown…
Losing, unnecessary PDAs, Bad kerning.

I’m happiest when…
I win. I’m a little competitive you could say!

My proudest SA moment was when…
I won IOIC designer of the year, way back in 2010, but I’ve had lots of proud moments over the past decade at scarlettabbott. Starting with the first time I saw one of my designs in print; then being part of the team winning some huge pitches and of course our unbeaten record in the dragon boat race last year… the list goes on and on.

A lot’s changed since I joined in 2006 as a Junior Designer but it feels pretty special knowing I’ve been part of something that has grown from just two designers to the juggernaut that is now the world’s best internal communications agency 😀

My first ever SA job was…
nearly a decade ago! It was even before I was officially an employee of scarlettabbott. To show I was worthy of a job Jonathan tasked me with designing up the company brochure and website… luckily he liked both and here I am nearly 10 years later… still designing both! I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Most people don’t know that I…
went to the same school as boxer Anthony Joshua. I also once beat former snooker World Champion Peter Ebdon at pool but I don’t like to talk about it… much.

The thing that makes me laugh most…
at the moment is the brilliantly smart comedy, Silicon Valley.

When I was a child I was very…
sporty. I love all sports still but when I was younger I was a lot better at them, I even went to a school of excellence for cricket.

My favourite people in the world are…
friends and family (kind of have to say that don’t you)… oh! and Emily Ratajkowski!

My favourite place in the world is…
probably watching the footy with my feet up. Like I say, I’m not quite the sportsman I once was.

One word that describes me is…
loveable? 😉
