Ed Williams

Managing Director

Ed Williams started the business as 23 year old, young naive BA Honours graduate of marketing and design with a box of magic markers and a fold away table and chair.

Since offering creative solutions to cave dwellers without the use of computers, websites or email, his expertise has been sought by clients from a broad range of SME’s to National and International leaders of brands both in the UK, Europe and the US.

Whilst being fully immersed in his passion, managing the business, clients, staff, and new business creation including a restaurant and bar, interior design and furniture showroom, property development, commercial letting, online leisure marketing and technology service provider, he spends most of his spare time being older than the rest of the team, telling dad jokes, not taking holidays and being a busy man!

Tip: When asking Ed about holidays he replies “they’re called weekends and Bank holidays”


Phil Burdon

Senior Designer

Cruelly extracted from his seaside cave in the North East, Phil was adopted by Williams&Crosby for his exceptional ability to stay within the lines when colouring in (not his degree in Information Design).

Since joining W&C in 2002, Phil has radically improved from a mediocre graphic designer to, what one client has described as, 'a bit better than mediocre'. Phil utilises his crayons most effectively to design logos, brochures and other print stuff. He has an interest in guitars that borders on dangerous obsession.

He has a very understanding wife and a little girl/guitar prodigy.

Tip: When asking Phil anything about guitars, take a seat!


Anne Byrne

Senior Web Designer

Anne has been designing for 16 years, 10 of them having been at the pleasure of Williams&Crosby. Whilst having come from a print design background with an HND in Graphic Design she now predominantly manages, architects, designs and builds client websites alongside a team of web developers. Whilst enjoying the technical challenges that web design brings with it she continues to enjoy the design aspects too and aims to produce websites that are functional, user-friendly and aesthetic.

In her spare time she enjoys running (the sporting type and that of chasing her 18 month old son), spending time with her handsome husband and sharing a bottle or two of wine with friends.
