Culture

We believe that every SB voice, perspective and personal experience helps us be more creative. We're not just artists - we're a team of creative wizards/thinkers - and we evolve through our people.

 

Be courageous. Take pride. Be collaborative. That’s all we ask of our people. Then we set them free to create some of the most impressive imagery in the industry. Our team of creative directors, artists and producers innovate on a daily basis, and constantly put their creativity on the line to come up with the right solution for our clients. Everyone at Saddington Baynes takes responsibility for the work they produce. This is how we behave...

 

We're courageous.

We take risks, innovate, inspire and challenge preconceptions.

We take pride.

We exceed expectations, deliver fantastic experiences, lose ourselves in the details and sweat the small stuff.

We collaborate.

We are open with each other and to new ideas, we share techniques, listen, guide and mentor each other. We are considerate, sympathetic, honest and generous. This is how we deliver the SB standard.
