Brilliant is a team of social media experts
We dream up clever, creative strategies and campaigns that get results. Clients appreciate our work ethic, sharp eye for detail and direct approach. If we think something can be done better, we’ll always say so.
We see ourselves as a partner not a supplier, and we sit at the balance point between creative and strategy.
We work towards a shared vision, having fun, working hard, getting results and continuously learning. In fact our whole team spends at least 5% of their working week learning new skills and increasing their knowledge.
Laurra is Brilliant’s founder and creative strategist. She’s the ideas person who keeps our inspiration tanks filled and directs our creative output. Laurra enjoys travelling, taking photographs and drinking mojitos. Sometimes all at once.
Mike is the brains behind our company development. Canny and analytical, he keeps the cogs oiled and whirring, and ensures everything stays all-systems-go. Mike is fond of fine tailoring and excellent coffee, and is on a mission to find the best cup of joe in the world.
Alex oversees the daily operations, systems and workflow of the business. Analytical and never without a spreadsheet, Alex ensures our business cogs are turning and we're always driving forward and developing new ways of working more effectively.
All round social media know-it-all and self-confessed ‘fact goblin’, Scott has an inquisitive mind so research and creating reactive content come naturally. Generally moody (in a good way) has been known to smile on occasion, especially when he's laughing at one of this own jokes.
Instagram addict and pretend ginger, Lucinda is a fashion blogger and social media master. When she's not taking photos of beautifully style food and drink, she's keeping up with influencers and creating Insta-worthy content.
Megan is our freshest Account Manager (both in style, and start date) and holds a really deep love for a low CPE, sharp paid media strategy and an Instagram feed that gives you goosebumps. Out of work you’ll find Meg constantly talking about how cute her cat is and ripping through eardrums with her ‘invasive’ laugh.
Ollie handles all the interactions, banter and customer service for our clients. Quick to jump on trending topics or reach out to (and charm) key influencers he's never short of a thing to say. Super visual and creative he also oversees our clients' Instagram account design and social photography direction.
Nicola Rowen Ball
You’ll rarely find an individual as fascinated with writing as Nicola. When she’s not getting through books at an alarming rate or drinking mountains of herbal tea, she’s perfecting the art of the written word herself. Call her a geek, she’s not bothered (she’ll probably just correct your grammar or something).
Connor is our Head of Design, tasked with making our concepts and ideas a reality. He has a keen eye for how our clients' stories and products are conveyed. If he’s not designing you'll find him out in the Yorkshire Dales cycling and sampling a beer or two at the end.
Andrew makes things move and is always up for any creative challenge the Brilliant team and our clients throw at him.
Will is our photographer and videographer, with a sharp eye for detail and a passion for the perfect composition, he's awesome at taking an idea and realising it in moving and still image. He's not very good at making cups of tea, though, but we forgive him.
Amy is our part-time social media, turns-her-hand to anything intern. When not in the office you can find her studying Marketing at Leeds University, training for her competitive cheerleading teams or enjoying a gin and tonic with friends.
