Team

Founded by two entrepreneurs with significant experience building and running successful companies, our team is made up of design thinkers and technology professionals with a passion for solving complex problems.

Meet The Founders

When the two of us first worked together it was because we wanted to tackle a really complex problem - helping solve a national skills crisis by teaching complex cyber security topics to young adults in an innovative and engaging new way. The passion we shared for building an amazing educational game to do that led to us building a team and product which now educates hundreds of thousands of people in cyber security fundamentals across the world each year.

That journey not just sparked a strong friendship and business partnership, but also generated a lot of interest from other businesses with a variety of complex and interesting problems, that wanted to leverage our expertise, experience and team to help them. That is why, in early 2019, we set up a new company, Spinning Fox, to tackle those opportunities specifically.

Already the idea has been proved successful. The amazing team we assembled made a tangible difference from the start: building a workflow solution to speed up production for a video editing team; tackling complex conversion issues for a large training company adjusting to the new world created by the pandemic; and building the MVP for a new learning management tool, amongst other things.

We're incredibly excited to tackle what comes next.

Tim and James, Founders

Our principles drive us

Our startup mindset and human-centered design approach make us fast and flexible enough to tackle problems in a way, and with a level of cost effectiveness, that many other digital agencies can't. Underpinning that are three core principles that shape our approach.

We believe transformation can happen fast

Our design sprint approach means we can get to the bottom of most problems in weeks rather than months, and it allows us to test, learn, improve and adapt to the pace of change inherent in most technology businesses.

We believe creativity comes from everywhere

The Spinning Fox team combines not just creative designers, but also strong technology professionals with a passion for solving business problems. That combination, especially when aligned with a client team full of experienced experts, allows us to generate high quality creative solutions to the challenges put in front of us.

We believe strong partnerships drive success

One of the most fundamental elements of making our design sprint approach successful is utilising experts already in the problem space to generate solutions based on their significant experience, with our team pushing them to create something innovative together. That kind of strong partnership model underpins our whole approach.

Principles

We're part of a bigger family

James and Tim, the entrepreneurs behind Spinning Fox, also lead two other companies. The three share expertise and experience, and together they're stronger.
