Sales & Marketing
With Rick’s background in printing and promotional merch, seldom will you see an item he can’t brand for you. Having run his own business for many years, he’s no stranger to the weird and wonderful demands of businesses and individuals alike and now runs the Cheltenham studio.
He was never a stranger to the world of web – with a long running working relationship with Chris, tailoring both merchandise and marketing to drive web traffic, it was an obvious partnership.
Outside the office if not in the gym or playing with his young daughter you’ll struggle to find him without a coffee in hand, scrolling through twitter!
Marketing & SEO
Head Honcho, The Big Cheese, The Top Dog, Boss Man, Chief: these are all terms we never use to refer to Chris, but the implication is clear – he runs things at the Nettl of Gloucester studio.
He’s the oldest – sorry most experienced – marketer in the office, and for years has been providing solutions for businesses online and offline. He knows how best to structure and populate your website, and he can tell you how many grams you need – in the innocent world of print, that is.
He also has 3 chickens, 2 daughters and 1 camp cat. Oh, and a wife.
Ian is by no means your typical designer, but he does possess these familiar characteristics: the latest software at his disposal, a keen eye for detail, his own worst critic, and a strong dislike for Comic Sans. Touching his Mac screen is also considered sacrilege.
As an Apple loyalist, seldom will you know of any new products or updates before him. Hand-in-hand with Adobe Creative Suite, he crafts some of the most aesthetically pleasing graphics for our clients.
We often joke at his inability to crack a smile in photos, but he’s just as jolly as the rest of us really.
Vicky is one of our resident graphic designers, having worked with Absolute whilst still studying design at College. Vicky loves to let her creativity flow with a good logo design and branding. Whatever creative juices actually are, Vicky has lots. She’s the other major mac-advocate in the office.
As well as creating some eye-catching designs as part of the Nettl team, one of her finest achievements came when she was at college – creating some rather fetching and award winning pant designs for the Pants to Poverty charity.
Zoe is the latest member to join the team in Cheltenham (even though she is rugby fan from Gloucester). As our Marketing Apprentice she’ll be using her creative skills to generate awesome content not just for Nettl’s Social Media, but clients too!
She’s pretty handy with the camera so will be photographing all the beautiful merchandise we print to show off in our portfolio.
When Zoe’s not working she’s helping people not to drown as a lifeguard at the local pool and loves a good film! (especially if it has Leonardo Di Caprio in it)
As the older person in the team he brings many years of experience and skills from a multitude of various industries… yet with one main goal as his mantra then and now – to achieve the best for his clients and the team he works with.
Brett; when not enjoying time with his family, can be found painting or gaming, unless Chewbacca the cat has decided he wants to play fight.

Incorporating Absolute Creative
We work very closely with the guys in our neighbouring Gloucester studio, which is handy for you if you love us but are based in Gloucester!
Sharing work, staff and of course love between two offices means that you can get to meetings with us easier and get the service that you want closer to home. And we do love a good cup of coffee over there!
These guys are just fantastic! They produced a brilliant website for me and are a pleasure to deal with. Efficient, affordable and professional – I can’t speak highly enough of them. They are so good I am hoping they can do another website for me shortly! I would highly recommend them so get involved with the guys at Nettl!
Very reasonable with pricing for such a professional look – and very easy to work with.
A tight team that has supported Shaun of the Dead LIVE! since its inception. Their attention to details is absolute and creative, ready to find solutions to everything we need and most importantly fast! Thank you guys!
