I’m Mark Epton, one of the first designers to specialise in working with ethical organisations. For over 20 years I’ve used branding and design to increase the impact of those addressing social, environmental and climate challenges.

How I can help you

With effective branding and design, I’ll help you achieve your goals: grow your ethical business, attract more supporters, increase funding, win campaigns, or inspire positive change. I do this through a joined-up service, from brand strategy and identity, through to web and graphic design. See my services

Who I’m here for

Activists, campaigners, charities, ethical businesses, policymakers, researchers, social enterprises, start-ups, sustainability professionals, trade unions and universities come to me because they want to increase their impact.

Vastly experienced

Since 1996 I’ve worked for ethical organisations. I’ve worked in the design teams at the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Gaia Books and at a design agency for high-profile arts clients. Then in 2003 I established Advocate as one of the first ethical design agencies. This is an almost unrivalled level of experience, expertise and dedication to creating positive change.

Greater commitment

As the business name ‘Advocate’ suggests, I’m on your side and I’ll champion you. Throughout my career I’ve also been an environmental campaigner. This unique combination of professional skills and personal commitment to your vision will ensure I provide truly effective work.

More bang for your buck

I believe good design should be for everyone, and without the overheads of a typical agency – salespeople, account handlers and a fancy office – I can invest more time on your project, for your budget, resulting in the best possible outcomes.

Small is best

I provide a personal, proactive service and when needed will bring together and manage talented web developers, copywriters, illustrators or photographers – creating the best team for your project.

Testimonies from clients
