Who is in charge?

Sue Thompson, Director and marketeer.

It helps being part of a creative team  and I work with the best!

I use my expertise as a marketeer with 20 years experience to make your business the best it can be.

I have worked within the Environment Agency, the Forestry Commission and other public sector organisations to help make a difference in developing and maintaining brands. As well as account managing within design agencies for large brands such as Hasbro, Esporta and Time Warner books.

Since setting up as Catch Designs, in Stokesley, I have worked with some lovely local businesses too,  from restaurants to charities and from anaerobic digestion developers to bicycle repair shops!

Over the last eight  years the experience of running my own design, social media & marketing business, helps me to understand how small businesses need to market themselves where budgets can be an issue.

I love talking to people and enjoy building up great relationships with my clients.

Developing new skills with social media, is the way forward for PR and marketing I can help you to develop your business.

Look forward to meeting you!

Louise Fleetwood, Forestry Commission
Catch Designs provided us with a large information panel in a visitor centre. The panel had to accommodate an electronic display which involved Catch Designs liaising with both us and a third party.Catch Designs were more than helpful from the start on this rather urgent and complex project. They were always quick to respond and able to accommodate our needs even when we had to make changes. We have ended up with a very good quality end product.

Just wanted to say thank you so so much for all the work you have done for Bake Happy and Just Puds.

Sue is good to work with and knowledgeable about social media. She accesses good content, assesses fit with brand appropriately and is willing to be robust and stand her ground when needed and to be flexible when needed. She is good at keeping us on the straight and narrow!
I enjoyed Sue’s training – and have to say I learned a lot more than I expected, Sue is very knowledgeable, helpful and engaging. I’d certainly recommend Sue to others and would consider using her for further training myself.
