Creating positive impact since 1996

Advocate is the ethical design agency of Mark Epton. I work with organisations creating a greener, fairer and better world. Bringing the power of branding and design to increase their impact and make a difference.

My credentials:

1. Unparalleled experience

Since 1996 I’ve used the power of branding and design to help organisations make a positive difference to people and the planet. In 2003 I established Advocate as one of the first ethical design agencies. This is an unparalleled level of experience, expertise and dedication to creating positive change.

2. A joined-up service

I provide the integrity and coherence of a joined-up service, from brand strategy and identity, through to web and graphic design. Ensuring the original vision is seamlessly carried through to the design of your digital and print materials.

3. Expertise needed more than ever

Branding, design and communications are powerful agents of change. Addressing the climate, ecological and social crises means that my experience and expertise in this area is needed more than ever.

4. Greater commitment

As the business name ‘Advocate’ suggests, I’m on your side and I’ll champion you. I share your vision and I’m committed to your success. In short, I’ll go the extra mile. This isn’t greenwashing or jumping on the ethical bandwagon, I’ve been an environmental campaigner since 1996.

5. More bang for your buck

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.

6. Small is beautiful

I provide a personal, hands-on service and single-minded dedication to the cause. I’ll be your sole point of contact throughout the project, and you’ll have direct access with me – the person doing the work.

“Mark has been wonderful to work with. His designs are both clear and ingenious. His genuine interest in our work is reassuring and we would recommend him wholeheartedly.” — Paul Ryder, Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford
