about us

At Bedrock we offer a genuinely creative approach via a small and approachable team. We believe in a relaxed, collaborative work environment and that the creative process and technical know-how shouldn’t be wrapped up in industry jargon. Bedrock is owned and creatively led by John Burholt who has 25 years industry experience, 15 of which running his own business. We have a strong client base stretching from Lands End to Europe and across to the Middle East, so the team are all seasoned travellers! In 2010 we swapped our Hatton Garden roof terrace for a Grade II listed studio in Northampton to capitalise on its central location and strong transport network.

If you would like to find out more, nothing beats a real conversation, so pick up the phone!
