A little bit about us

We’re a small, friendly, yet skilled team based in Bournemouth town centre.

Beep was established in 2009, by business partners David Mallett and Jo Armitage. Both had been working in different creative fields for a number of years, until they decided to join forces. Beep started with humble beginnings in David’s front room, but having grown rapidly in the last few years, now its all happening our studio…which started with just two 60s chairs, and now is complete with desks and a kettle that is always going on…

We are always full of vitality and verve when working on our clients projects. Here to craft all visual communication needs, we embrace a number of different working platforms, with method and ability that comes from years of combined experience in the photographic and retail design industry.

Providing a variety of creative services that span specialist printing, retail window design, visual merchandising, environmental graphics, design, logos, branding, photography, exhibition signage, one off vinyl projects and print production.

We have a proven mastery of large scale projects, with full project management – executed on time and to budget. We can also handle smaller, more delicate work with much dexterity. We like to meet and chat to our clients, to ensure we have a good line of communication at all times. This is a top priority and our approachable manner enables us to get the job right.

Our Approach

We believe in having a method. Idea creation is at the top of our thinking, but we also quite like it when people pop by the studio with biscuits.

We think listening to clients is vital to any project. We like to be super snappy on all communications, and approachable so we can work together as a team.


We have been in the industry many years and know that the true satisfaction is to produce great work. We approach each project with fresh energy and enthusiasm.


We have been making and creating for years and believe that fun and enjoyment are a major part of our success. We like to brainstorm, scribble and lightbulb moments.


We believe every project, no matter what the scale, is important to us and to you. We have 100% commitment, no matter what it takes to complete, we will succeed.

A little bit of background behind the partners of Beep.


Jo Armitage

Jo gained a fine art photography degree at The Arts University at Bournemouth, which followed by working for retail company Lush. Jo embarked on many ventures, initially sign writing, shop design, branding, window design, design team management, international brand awareness, PR launches and project managing UK and European shop openings.

After many projects, lots of travelling and much experience Jo then moved to London to embark on a freelance career and worked as a window dresser and installation for various large high street brands. It seemed a natural step to move into something more involved… Beep had begun.


David Mallett

In David’s early career he worked in a design studio as a paste up artist (pre photoshop days!) where he gained an interest in photography, after studying at AUB he started up a freelance business as a photographer.

Spanning over 20 years he has worked with many large companies, including retailers for product photography, developers for architectural shots and marketing companies for more documentary, shoot from the hip style. Having realised many creative platforms link to one another in the digital age, starting Beep seemed like a evolved solution to move into a wider area of practice.
