Barns Bulletin #16

Welcome to our monthly roundup of all things Freestyle: highlights of people, whereabouts and work happening at our Warwickshire HQ, the Barns.

Welcome back and Happy New Year from everyone at Freestyle!

Despite January being cold and wet, we’ve been busy getting our heads down and cracking on with some very exciting new projects - plus, we welcomed a new face to the Barns!

2019 wrap up

Find out what last year looked like for us in our 2019 round up. From new clients to new starters, it’s all been happening and we can't wait for an even bigger and better year in 2020!



Tonic 05 🍸

We heard some fantastic talks at our 5th Tonic event, which was all about humanising the digital experience for customers. Take a look at our summary of the evening here.

Keep an eye out for our next Tonic instalment taking place in London next month - more info to follow soon. And if you fancy joining the next Birmingham Tonic, tickets are available here.

Client Workshops

We kicked off the year with some exciting new client workshops. There’s nothing we love more than delving deep into our clients’ complex digital problems and finding innovative ways of helping them solve these with a clarity of focus, passion and expertise, unique to Freestyle.

It’s a great way to collaborate with clients and get them to challenge the perception of their own products and customer journeys.


Brainfood 📧

January also saw the launch of Brainfood, a collection of interesting and insightful links shared on our studio Slack channel, delivered straight to your inbox!

Our brand-new fortnightly newsletter is lovingly curated by Dan, Marketing Director at Freestyle, and aims to keep you in the loop of exciting updates within the industry and beyond.

Matt Hemmings


Creative Designer

January welcomed a fresh face to the Barns, with Matt joining us as a fully fledged Designer (with some very handy front-end skills too). In his spare time, Matt is a big music lover and enjoys playing the guitar, but he’s also partial to a Netflix binge.

Matt’s happiest when being creative - from his day to job to some good old fashioned DIY, he’s already renovated two houses in his 20’s! Matt’s nicely settled into the team and we’re looking forward to seeing him grow and develop here at Freestyle. 

Sheepies 🐑

This month’s Sheepie award goes to… the one and only, Yappers! 👏 As well as pulling a fair few all-nighters finishing client-side work, he’s always there for you when you need him and brightens up our days with his extensive collection of trainers! Nice one Chris, keep up the good work ✔️⭐️
