More about Luke
My design career spans more than fifteen years including a decade of agency work in London and seven years running my own studio and consulting directly with clients. I’ve worked remotely from every continent bar Antarctica during a long spell of nomadic living, but now mostly work out of my beautiful office in the centre of Leeds, U.K. As well as client work with Airborne Studio, I also work on a long term consultancy basis with select clients. Currently I am Head of Brand and Content for social app Fledglink and Head of Brand Design for San Francisco agency Truth Cartel.
Fledglink

Fledglink is a UK based startup helping young people work smarter to find the best early career opportunities. We’ve worked with them right from the inception of the idea; supporting them through prototyping and testing, through to securing funding before launching the app on both iOS and Android. Luke continues to work closely with them as Head of Brand and Content.

Social Squad is a sub-brand of London based media start-up Ball Street Network. With over 13m followers, the collection of social media accounts they brought together wield significant influence. Our strategy sessions defined them as authentic, grass-roots and fanatical – and they needed a lean identity and simple website to reflect those qualities.
