Novo Creative was formed in June 2017 – the brainchild of Danny Taylor and Ben Hewer – two old school friends from Hertfordshire.
Danny’s career path took a few twists and turns through electronics, IT and the leisure industry before forming a construction company in 2005. Ben has spent most of his working life in the creative industry as a designer and illustrator of some repute!
So after many years developing careers and building their individual reputations – they decided that now was the time to combine their knowledge and talents – and bring Novo Creative into the world.
And yes, that IS Gyles Brandreth in between us!
The driving inspiration behind Novo Creative was that Danny and Ben could have fun at work – something that neither of them had done for a very, very long time.
Initial ideas had included ideas for a segway track in the office, tubes sliding from one floor to another and the whole office to be one giant ball pit. These plans were dashed on the rocks when the chaps realised that the slides wouldn’t work in a single story building!
Also, the whole office/ball pit idea was a bit of a non-starter, as it made finding things around the office very difficult, and the less said about the segways the better.
Undeterred, they pressed on, and decided that the best way to have fun while they worked was to work exclusively on interesting projects with nice people – and to pay themselves exorbitant salaries!Get in Touch
Our first few months have been manic. We’ve not been very good at updating our portfolio page, but we have found time to add a few pictures. So for now, you’re spared the overblown case studies in which we go into great detail to explain why we used purple or decided to avoid Times New Roman and go for Helvetica!

Stay tuned for portfolio updates as soon as we have 5 minutes to spare!
