Pocket Creatives launched in the winter of 2017, formed as a limited company following the team working under the name of SMC since 2015. Pocket is seen as the next step in our evolution.
Steven’s professional history started in broadcasting, supporting mainstream television programmes such as BBC’s Watchdog, Crimewatch and Horizon and leading a 10-person team running 24/7 to make this happen.
But production was always the passion, and he burnt all the hours in the day running a small, innovative corporate video production company alongside called Screensaver which could boast clients such as Tower Bridge, the Museum of London and the National Portrait Gallery. This paved the way to progress full time into the production world and merged into Tailwind Media into 2010.
For 6 years, Steven oversaw the production team, making impressive in-roads into the UK corporate video market, working with some of the country’s biggest names. Highlights would include a huge campaign for Arcadia; helping to update the internal communications video magazine for electronics giant Philips, working with pop star Olly Murs on the Pringles 25th birthday online adverts, and overseeing a multitude of projects for Tesco, Currys PC World and Groupon to name a few.
2015 saw the creation of SMC, after Steven wanted to take a different direction, and adding photography to his offering. Haider Romero Perez and Lauren Hodge were invited to join, bringing a wealth of skill, enthusiasm, and drive and within 2 years have become co-owners of the newly incorporated Pocket Creatives.
“SMC provided a wonderful opportunity to meet new business owners and establish ourselves in new markets, offering new services and building a friendly and creative business where we’re building long-term working relationships with our clients. Pocket Creatives couldn’t have been launched without the faith and trust shown in us by our clients, and we look forward to growing alongside them over the years to come.”
