From Now On are creative strategists and cultural programmers
We’re all about finding new ways to connect people in (and with) a changing world
We’re driven by the certainty that people need to equip themselves to respond creatively to change, whether that’s through connecting to ideas, to skills or to other people around them. In this way good ideas can spread and lives can be improved.
We’ve worked client and agency side, put together teams and augmented existing ones. We’re often appointed early to shape a project, or late when nothing else has worked. We excel in finding the project in the fog.
We work internationally from our London base
With skills and expertise which span creativity and innovation, learning and public engagement we’re small, connected and serious, with our own active research programme, and strong links to universities and research institutes. Our team is supported by expert partners and collaborators, nationally and internationally.
Dee leads on Strategy. She is an experienced and skilled creative strategist and consultant, with a reputation for making sense of and finding direction within the most complex of challenges. Her unusual combination of a rational sensibility with complete commitment to creative excellence have equipped her well in past work with Tate, Science Museum and the National Trust.
Daniel leads on Creative Direction. He is an internationally recognised curator, consultant and educator with an enquiring mind and an entrepreneurial streak. His wayward curiosity and relentless pursuit of ideas account for his unlikely level of output, including founding curator of the Aram Gallery, creative director of the international multi-site Maker Library Network and his professorial role at Kingston University.
Carol joined us in 2016 to support studio administration and management. With a background in media, and more recently heritage, when we heard she was moving from senior office based roles to supporting businesses ‘virtually’ we jumped at the opportunity. Carol can be reached on [email protected]
Inés collaborates with us on experimental communication projects. An experienced communication designer she is now also in the midst of a practice led Phd student in social design at the University of Lisbon. But somehow thankfully finds the time to pitch in on special projects with us at From Now On.
Koby collaborates on all of our visual work, from illustrations and infographics to exhibition graphics. His work as a speculative designer, tutor and researcher means he is hugely overqualified for this work, and we benefit from his critical thinking and communications nous.
A regular and valued collaborator, Nat has brought her hands on experience as Director of Machines Room maker space and expertise in Circular Economy to benefit our work with Central Research Labs and Maker Library Network.
Our in-house learning lab, concerned broadly with engaging and equipping young people in a changing world, now stands on its own 2 feet, but continues to provide rich insight and experience to inform all our projects.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
