Young and hungry, we started out in 2005. There were four of us then and we specialised in customer magazines. Now there are lots of us and we’re a content marketing agency working for world-class clients across print and digital channels – from magazines to brand videos; content strategy to measurement. We’re Marketing magazine’s Content Marketing Agency of the Year 2012/13. We love what we do.

Our team

Chris Lee, Finance director at Sunday

Chris Lee Finance Director

I’ll always be grateful to Matt, Toby and Steph for rescuing me from normal employment. As COO of an Interpublic business, my will to live was being drained away until they rode in on their Sunday chargers. I am trained to cope with monotony, so my role is to do the things that those with more active brains find too dull.

Perfect Sunday: Sun, walk to pub, lovely children (must find some), beer.

Favourite cake: Oat and raisin cookie

@BigNormCamper

Andy Plowman, production editor at Sunday

Andy Plowman Deputy Editor

After realising I enjoyed coining terrible puns, obsessing over typefaces and pointing out other people’s mistakes more than I did reviewing gigs, I left God’s own county to seek fame and fortune as a subeditor in that there London. Until that happens, I do my best to sprinkle a bit of magic over Modus, the magazine for RICS.

True or false: I once clean-bowled England’s Joe Root for a duck.

Favourite cake: Carrot cake – but I liked it before Michael did

Isabella Fernandes, senior designer at Sunday

Isabella Fernandes Art Director

I joined Sunday as a studio assistant a year after graduating from UAL. Four and a half years later, there have been a few more studio assistants and I’m now a deputy art director, working on some of the same content marketing projects and some shiny new ones that we’ve picked up along the way.

Perfect Sunday: One followed by a bank holiday Monday.

Favourite cake: Heston Blumenthal’s exploding chocolate gateau

Jessie Lear, editor at Sunday

Jessie Lear Editor

I started out in radio, creating arty snippets for BBC Radio Bristol. I quickly realised that I don’t have a face for radio and changed career. After working with Delicious magazine, Waitrose Food Illustrated and Glamour, I applied for a job with Sunday, and am now slowly edging Toby from his management throne.

True or false? I have conjoined toes on both feet and swim exceptionally well.

Favourite cake: Angel cake – perfect in every way

Jo Brennan Account Manager

After studying art history and Spanish at Uni, I knew I wanted to do something creative, or at least work in a creative environment… and content marketing seemed to be the perfect fit. From digital campaigns to cookery books, I love the varied process of content creation, and ultimately bringing an idea to life. Of course, my role would not be complete without a spreadsheet. I love a spreadsheet.

Perfect Sunday: A sofa, a pot of tea, Formula 1… and some biscuits.

Favourite cake: Guinness cake

Kristin Braginetz Deputy Editor

I’ve been told (possibly untruthfully) that I could read before I could walk, and while that might be more a statement on my enduring aversion to athletics, it also explains my chosen profession. As a writer and editor, I’ve covered everything from travel to luxury real estate, fashion to food. I was born in Canada and spent the first 20-something years of my life there before moving to New Zealand, then to London. Despite these cultural shifts I still haven’t managed to drop ‘eh’ or ‘aboot’ from my vocabulary.

True or false? I had the same high-school drama teacher as Ryan Gosling.

Favourite cake: Rainbow chip

Laura Burry, senior sales executive at Sunday

Laura Burry Senior Sales Executive

I started my media sales career in 2012 working on the RICS online directory, Find A Surveyor. I really enjoy consulting with all types of professional, from small independent business owners to marketing directors at nationwide surveying firms, and advising them on the most beneficial advertising campaigns. Before media sales, I worked in fashion retail – so my wardrobe is fully kitted out with all the accessories a girl could wish for!

True or false? I was a finalist on Britain’s Next Top Model.

Favourite cake: Fridge cake

Lucy Ryan, editor at Sunday

Lucy Ryan Editor

Having bluffed my way into journalism in Hong Kong many moons ago, I found my niche exploring great places and meeting interesting people as a features writer and editor. Twenty years on (via several London agencies and a freelance career), I never tire of the challenge: pulling together great ideas and working with the best people to create multi-faceted content for print, online and beyond. There’s never a dull day at Sunday working on an exciting range of accounts. Nothing beats the thrill of seeing all those words and pictures come alive after so much hard work.

Most proud of: Winning Launch of the Year for Boden’s A Thousand Little Things.

Favourite cake: Don’t ask me about cake. There’s far too much of it in this office. But if I had to choose my favourite… lemon drizzle.

Marc Grainger, deputy editor at Sunday

Marc Grainger Editor

I arrived here having been Pedant-in-Chief of Geographical and Dive magazines. Before that, my work covered the dynamic industries of accounting, frozen food and (I kid you not) fish and chips. I take pride in spotting the tiniest typo or most innocuous inaccuracy. Of corse, my spelin iss perfekt.

Little known fact: I moonlight as a DJ and have played with some of the biggest names in dance music.

Favourite cake: Chocolate fudge cake

Mark Wheeler Art Director

My passion for design started at the tender age of six when I won first prize in a Boys’ Brigade ‘Design a Christmas Poster’ competition. Spurred on by this early triumph, I went on to study fine art and graphic design at university. I’ve now been in the industry for 20 years with clients including Toyota, Manchester United, America’s Cup and Warner Bros. I landed at Sunday three years ago and have worked on a number of projects (and a few Christmas campaigns) for Vodafone, Lloyd’s of London, Morrisons and The Royal Marsden.

Perfect Sunday: A bracing morning walk in Bushy Park with the family, then Sunday lunch with a glass or two.

Favourite cake: Lemon drizzle

Meike Abrahams Editor

I once joked that my dream job would involve being paid to read. Happily the universe took me seriously, and for over eight years I’ve been lucky enough to read (in order to edit and write) content for Glamour magazine, and brands like Vodafone and Audi. It seems the universe is on my side once again, because at Sunday I’ve found the dream combination: words and cake.

Little known fact: I see numbers in colours. I’ve been told it’s called synaesthesia, but all it’s really handy for is memorising phone numbers.

Favourite cake: My sister’s speciality Lindt chocolate cupcakes. Beautiful, chocolatey moreishness

Michael Wood, production manager at Sunday

Michael Wood Production Director

I’m here to ensure every print job is delivered on time, on budget and to the highest possible standard. I spend most days with my head in Excel spreadsheets, checking printer proofs and scrutinising freshly printed pieces. And when such a piece arrives, the first thing I do is smell it. Ah, the great smell of print.

Little known fact: I always have box-fresh trainers on standby in case of emergencies.

Favourite cake: Carrot

Richard Robinson, group editor at Sunday

Richard Robinson Content Director

I’ve worked on a host of multi-channel content for a wide range of brands in the automotive, finance, real estate and luxury sectors. Creative, dynamic, expert… These are three words I use to describe the person I want to be when I grow up.

Perfect Sunday: I win my first Formula 1 race, driving for Ferrari. At Monaco or Spa. Either would be fine.

Favourite cake: Tarta de coco y dulce de leche.

Sam Gilbert Senior Account Manager

I’ve been the stats and data geek in every sales team I’ve worked with, always accompanied by my trusty scientific calculator.

In my six years in recruitment advertising, I’ve covered more sectors than I care to remember and am still genuinely amazed at how each one brings its own challenges. I get more excited than most figuring out ways around them. If I’m not doing that then I’ll probably be running around the South-West London area wearing more Lycra than you’d find in Spiderman’s wardrobe.

Little known fact: I once worked in a travelling carnival.

Favourite Cake: Banoffee Cheesecake

Sam Walker, group art director at Sunday

Sam Walker Creative Director

I’m living the dream: from magazine-obsessed design student to art director, and loving it. I’ve worked with some fantastic brands including Red Bull, Nike and Volvo, and helped develop a multi-award-winning content marketing approach from magazine to iPad for Audi. The desire to innovate is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

Little known fact: I used to have shoulder-length blue dreadlocks.

Favourite cake: Jaffa cake

Siân Purdy Designer

I know that spending 20 minutes at the start of a meal analysing the menu for perfect alignment and excellent typesetting doesn’t make me the most exciting date – but, one way or another, it does seem to have got me here!

I feel like I’ve landed on my feet to be working in editorial and content marketing . I can be a problem solver and creative. I also get to play with words without the responsibility of ensuring they make sense (I’ll leave that to these lovely editors).

True or false? I am related to Jim Carrey.

Favourite cake: Marble cake (perfect for us indecisive types)

Silvia Mendes Social Media Manager

What do you do? Ah yes, that question. In short, I write for social media channels… Facebook, Instagram, you name it. In reality, I analyse hashtags, I speak fluent emoji and I live for the GIF. I entertain. Basically, I’m that person who gets your fingers and thumbs to hit the re-tweet button! You can thank me later.

Perfect Sunday: Brunch followed by a trip to Stamford Bridge.

Favourite cake: Pastéis de Nata

 

Toby Mathews, technical director at Sunday

Toby Mathews Technical Director

My eyes opened to the wonders of the internet at uni, where I built my first website. Since then, I’ve worked on content marketing projects ranging from the small to the gargantuan, for clients such as Coca-Cola and Fiat. A keen observer of the online world, I predicted the swift demise of Twitter. I regularly revise my estimates.

Little known fact: I won Best Actor in South East Surrey playing an Amish elder. When I was 12.

Favourite cake: Muffin – because it’s a whole cake you can eat on your own
