When looking to write blog posts I was advised to answer questions about branding, design and our business – But one of the questions I do get asked more than anything else is “who is Sandison?” Since 2002 the business has been called SandisonPay and I’m the Claire Pay of the business – which leaves me to explain who is Sandison?
So rewind to my time at DMB&B London and 12 months after leaving the agency a client called Working Links, contacted me and asked me to quote on a project in London. It was great timing as I was on the verge of striking out alone. This was a potentially large contract and daunting so I asked for help. My lovely account manager, Sally Sandison kindly offered to take a day off work and come with me to help me pitch my business!!
The evening before the meeting driving home I thought we don’t have a business name. So the name SandisonPay was born while driving down the A286 Chiddingfold, Surrey. I was successful and secured the client – Sally stayed with the team at Ardent Creative and has watched “SandisonPay” grow over the years. We have always kept in touch and 2 children each, numerous dog walks and catch-ups later, we now find ourselves in the amazing position of actually working together.
So we welcome Sally Sandison to the business as our new Account Director – Full circle.
