The Origins of CleverTinman

Graham Craig CleverTinman Director and FounderMy name is Graham Craig, and I am the founder and Creative Director of the CleverTinman company providing high-quality Marketing and Design ser to small and medium-sized businesses. The company was born from of a desire to draw for a living and built upon the skills developed through years of Art and Design education, Field Marketing and MARCOMs career experience.

The first question I often get asked is ‘Where did the name come from?‘ Many names had been considered before stumbling upon the final title, I wanted a name that could be applied to a number of services and one that would stick in the mind of the customer. Inspiration eventually came from movie credits and the production company ‘Bad Robot’. The name made a few cogs move and signalled my mouth to utter the words which now adorn various important documents, a website and numerous business cards.

The services provided by the CleverTinman are tailored to the requirements of the customer, whether you require a single piece of artwork or a period of Marketing Support, a great deal of pride and attention to detail will be attributed to achieving the best results.

Since a young age, I have had a passion for Art & Design and a natural ability to draw. The desire to use my skills has influenced the decisions I have made throughout my life taking me to Art College and on to study Car Design at University.

After returning from Huddersfield University I found myself working in Field Marketing industry, managing Field Teams and working with the marketing departments of large global companies. During this period I learnt many new skills enabling me to better interact on a corporate level and a greater understanding of the UK retail landscape.

In 2011 I took a deep breath and jumped into running my own business feet-first and I haven’t looked back since. I have been incredibly fortunate to work on a wide variety of projects for a fantastic group of clients including high-end retail, education, sports events and wine promotion, to name but a few.

If you would like to find out how my company could help your business please give me a call. I would be delighted to share my thoughts and ideas over a coffee with you.

All the Best
