Ergo Creative has grown and evolved since being founded as Dandelime in 2009, here is our story in a brief timeline, and an introduction to our team.
The agency was founded in 2009 by Design Director Tom Walton, to put inspirational ideas into production through brand, digital and industrial design, and was originally incorporated as Dandelime Ltd. The name simply aimed to sound unique, happy and green.
Leading creative and an Industrial Designer, with over 15 years’ experience. Working on branding, structural branding, packaging, product design, spatial design and graphic design for leading brands such as Unilever, P&G, Coca-Cola, Wyeth, Reckitt Benckiser, Kimberly-Clarke, Sara Lee, Mars food, Jaguar Land Rover, Mastercard and more, Tom has a wide experience to call on, designing stand-out projects.
After a call with Tom to discuss doing something more creative, Justin joined shortly after the agency was founded. With over 20 years’ experience in web design, UI and digital graphic design Justin has worked on digital graphics, responsive websites, apps and online media for major brands such as Mastercard, Honeywell, Dell, Corporate Rewards and My Key Machine.
At this time we had two clear workstreams, custom design for B2C sales where we focussed Dandelime, and B2B agency work for which we created a new division called Emblime, to market this more effectively. The name was a nod to the parent name Dandelime® and a play on the word emblem, and our ‘E’ Logo was born.
Louisa joined the team in 2013, and despite relocating, continues to work for us remotely. She specialises in a blend of Marketing, Branding, Graphic Design and Copy Writing & Editing. Louisa has a flair for Elegantly styled graphics and brands.
Neil joined the team in early 2015 to help with new clients and became a director in 2016. Heading up the digital and web development team with over 20 years’ experience Neil is focused on development of bespoke web systems, applications and server solutions to keep Ergo’s clients ahead of the curve. Projects include Microsoft, Dell, Honeywell, custom property portals, websites, live video solutions, and interactive kiosks for clients such as Shell, Diageo, GSK, Metro Digital and Thompson Scientific.
First joining us while finishing his degree, Chris then stayed on and is now part of our London team. Chris has a high skill level in 2D graphical layouts and 3D modelling creating life like visualisations, fly through animations and interior and exterior scenes, from yachts to packaging. He has previously won awards in design for Taylors of Harrogate, RSA, Nestle; and most recently been recognised as a finalist in BOAT International’s Young Designer of the year award. He has been involved with product and industrial design for some of our key jobs including Jaguar Land Rover and My Key Machine. With a glossy and premium finish his work is of very high standard.
Emblime had grown sufficiently it was time to move it to limited company status by autumn 2015.
By the end of 2015, Dandelime’s main focus had become it’s key product design ‘Imogen Furniture’, and any other industrial design was now covered by Emblime. We decided to make that official and marked this by renaming Dandelime to Imogen Furniture Ltd.
Josh joined the team mid 2017 to support our growing graphics and video workload. With an eye for animation and a passion for iconic graphics and videography, Josh's meticulous detailing creates clean and communicative graphics.

We became Ergo Creative on the 24th May 2018. With another growth spurt and the rise in scale of our customers, we decided it was time to have a name with more purpose, that retained our ‘E’ identity and simplified how we communicated with our clients.
We moved into our current building to accommodate the larger team and allow for future growth.
We made the decision to close Imogen Furniture officially, to focus all of our attention on our growing agency.
