Jamie is the Senior Designer here at Buy-From and particularly loves working with clients to create their brand and roll it out across all media. Jamie leads all design in-house for Buy-From, known by many of our clients as "legend"! When he is not behind his Mac, you will find him on his bike or at the gym.

Tegan Bristow

Tegan works across many of our clients' accounts, helping to underpin much of what we do here at Buy-From. She particularly enjoys the creative side of marketing and social media, and is fantastic at mentoring small businesses to help them harness the power of social.

When she is not working, Tegan can be found at the gym or walking her own Ted!

Ella is the newest member of the team and joins us as our new Digital Marketing Apprentice. She will make a fantastic addition to the team and has already hit the ground running.

Ella loves working with lots of different clients and is excited to start her journey with Buy-From. If you have a sweet tooth, then why not take a look at Ella's own business, Sweet Boxes Shropshire, which she set up when she was 14 and runs in her spare time!
