Creative Director

Paul Balfe


Growing up I devoured surf and skate magazines, branding, graphics and constantly poured over my favourite bands’ music, merch and cd cases. It took me years to realise but design influences everything I do, it’s everywhere and I love drawing off my surroundings to create great design outcomes. If I don’t have a pen or mouse in my hand, you’ll more than likely find me pondering a new concept or floating around in the ocean.


Head of Social

Rusty Balfe


Rusty has only recently been appointed Head of Social here at Pennybridge. After various takeovers on our social feeds, his bubbly nature captured the hearts and minds of our audience and he quickly became the talk of the town. Rusty has taught us a lot about reaching out and engaging with customers since and is always creating a light buzz in the studio.
