About us

Our mission

To empower businesses of all sizes to establish a clear brand strategy and access premium, measurable design solutions.

Our story

In 2005, Graphic Designer Mark Paul founded Little Gem Creative, initially focusing on local graphic design projects while attracting new business through website enquiries.

Due to personal circumstances (becoming a full-time single parent), Mark has been a work-from-home veteran since 2010.

As a natural problem solver, he transitioned to a more strategic approach, delving into clients’ objectives and collaborating with them to achieve their goals through innovative design.

Today, the agency offers a remote-first, full service – Strategy, Design & Analytics. Making it accessible for all businesses to tell their brand story, define their brand strategy and create measured design.

"Design investment shouldn't rely on one-off solutions; instead, implement a thorough, evolving brand strategy to understand your market position and customer expectations".


With over 23 years of experience, Mark has successfully delivered high-level marketing strategies for various brands, charities, and public sector organisations.

His diverse background includes leading the creative team at a renowned London-based exhibition design agency and working in advertising for technology giants like Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, and IBM.

Mark also spent five years as a graphic design lecturer in further education. Since establishing Little Gem Creative in 2005, he brings extensive expertise in managing a thriving small business.
