Mark Burnell - Senior Designer - the Glow Studio

Mark Burnell

Senior Designer

Mark has over 25 years of design agency experience and is used to working with multiple brands and the most challenging of client briefs. Having studied Product Design at Bournemouth University, his claim to fame is that he created and developed Mazuma Mobile’s brand identity, supporting its growth from concept to a multimillion pound company. Although we would say his biggest claim to fame should be that he created Glow’s very first logo 21 years ago. With a passion for branding, printed communications and all things digital, Mark works with clients to create designs that excite, inspire, and engage.

Sophie Cutter
