Ben has been involved in the digital sector since qualifying in IT & Engineering in 1998. Designing and building a communications system for a marketing and events agency cemented his love for crafting experiences and solutions that embrace technology and effective design, and his career path was set. After working for various agencies and getting involved in several business partnerships, he teamed up with one of his long-term clients and mentors to start his own creative agency in 2013.
Ben is highly driven and very passionate about the business and its clients. He’s proud of the team he has brought together at This is Fever, and the growth and recognition they have achieved so far. With a clear vision for the future, he is genuinely excited about the opportunities and success each day brings. Celery is his Kryptonite, but with a team full of meat lovers it’s not something he has to face too often.

Olivia’s management experience spans across many different fields, from Art Studios to Public Relations. With a BASc from Quest University Canada, she takes an interdisciplinary approach to anything set in front of her (including statistical analyses of fairy tales). She enjoys seeing a project come together from ideation to completion, especially with the high level of creativity applied to it by team Fever.
She’ll often be the at the end of the line when you call the office and is happy to chat about the weather, and whether or not she knows “Bob from Toronto” (it depends who’s asking). Always thinking ahead, you can find her reading up on the latest tech news, listening to podcasts and working on honing her British accent and tea-making skills.

Jay is the Technical Director here at This is Fever, with over ten years’ experience in developing interactive media of all shapes and sizes. He works with a range of web systems and technology, specialising in the incredibly flexible WordPress platform. His work in this area has led to some unique use-cases and seamless integrations, including Mercury Theatre’s website integration with the Spektrix ticketing system.
Jay created his first website when he was just 12 years old and, over 14 years later, he’s still excited to see where the next project takes him. He’s a technology lover (among other things), who lives to craft experiences that continually evolve with the latest techniques and best practices. He enjoys being part of projects that push boundaries and allow him to get deep into problem-solving. The only other profession that would give him this much satisfaction would be becoming a full-time Jedi and residing in a galaxy far, far away.

Rowena is a designer with over 10 years’ experience, specialising in digital product design and illustration. She takes inspiration from a love of music and movies, particularly theatrical posters and album artwork. Her work with interactive design has led her to contribute to some awesome apps and games, increasing her knowledge of development and animation in the process.
Having been with This is Fever for over 4 years, her favourite kinds of projects are hands-on and multi-disciplinary – where traditional meets digital. Coming from a creative family, she’s always been surrounded by a wide range of artistic disciplines, from photography to traditional illustration. 90% of her wardrobe is black and her hair is rarely the same colour from month to month – she is frequently asked when she’ll grow out of this ‘phase’.

Joe has been creating websites and interactive content for over seven years now, with a focus on developing user-friendly sites that perform excellently for clients. He joined This is Fever in 2017, looking for a more structured work environment where he would be able to improve his abilities alongside a highly-skilled team.
Since starting work at Fever, he has enjoyed experience on projects with well-thought-out designs using high-quality images as they are always satisfying to see as a final product. A love of video games, movies and comics – and the high level of detail that goes into their design – is one of his main inspirations for working in the creative industries, and his logical methods of thinking made him a natural fit for website development.

Richard joined This is Fever in 2018, initially on a temporary basis, to start his first direct development role. Hailing from operations management, wielding a degree in graphic design and sporting a passion for problem-solving, he uses video games, science and tech as inspirational drivers and coding as his chauffeur. He began tampering with website design in his late teens and temporarily relocated to Cornwall to study graphic design at Falmouth University.
After graduating in 2012 and returning to Colchester, Richard embraced various roles and eventually tumbled into the corporate management dimension. After some time, realising that the corporate path wasn’t for him, Richard re-acquainted himself with his passion for development and threw himself into the deep end of the digital world. Working with a variety of frameworks, libraries and problem-solving techniques, he thrives on the diverse industries and projects that come through our studio.

He has a versatile skill set enabling him to work on a range of different projects from creating brand identities to designing for print, web design and animation. He’s a huge lover of all forms of creativity and finds that ideas always pop up when he least expects them to!
Dan’s favourite part of a project is research. Gaining a better understanding of our clients and the industry or sector they operate in really excites him. As a result, he can easily chew your ear off about air conditioning systems, natural food supplements, milkshakes and the history of theatre. Whatever project is lurking around the corner can only add to his weird and wonderful knowledge!

Sam’s the sensible one. You’ll usually hear from her at the end of the month when the accounts are due, meaning she’s probably not a name you love seeing pop up in your inbox. She’s very enthusiastic about our projects and ensuring customers get the best experience from This is Fever from start to finish each month. She’s also confident, sociable, a great problem solver, a tireless multi-tasker and incredibly reliable with IT and Office software packages.
Sam has extensive experience in accounting, monthly management accounts and a wide level of general responsibility for monitoring and reconciliation of company accounts. Some have even referred to her as a strong communicator, with excellent interpersonal skills and knowledge of KPI reporting, and she works hard to ensure This is Fever’s finance function is well organised and efficient.
