Becky Jeffries – designer
Becky deals with all things creative, be it our logo design right through to website pages. Having studied visual communications at Middlesex University, she has been self-employed ever since adding artistic finesse to agencies all over London. Being a mum of two she also knows a fair bit about kids habits and seeing things from a child and a parents perspective.
Betty Le Bon – illustrator & animator
Betty is the very talented illustrator of our first story ‘Feed-’Em Fred, the Chef of Dread’. Having graduated from the Arts University of Bournemouth in 2010 she is already highly-in-demand as a concept artist and illustrator. Feed-’Em Fred, the Chef of Dread is Betty’s first children’s book for the iPad. Her great talent and fascination with the world around her make her a formidable prospect. One day we will all say, ‘I once worked with Betty Le Bon’.
When not working Betty love nothing more than to relax with a nice cup of tea.
