Fearless Faces

Great people make great work. But it’s not just about recruiting the finest people around, it’s about keeping them and that’s where our mojo comes in. It’s hard to pin down exactly what our mojo ‘is’ because it’s lots of things. It’s embracing diversity, nurturing talent, mucking in and making Taxi Studio a special place to be. But most of all ... it’s about loving coming to work every day.

The Team

Creative Partner & Founder

Spencer Buck

Spencer is our maverick co-founder. With extensive cross-category experience, requests to speak at creative and client events, invitations to judge creative competitions and over 150 creative awards to his name, it came as little surprise that the Drum Designeratti recognised him as one of the UK’s most inspiring and influential designers in 2014 and 2015.

(Since then, we’ve had to widen the doors to accommodate his ever-expanding ego.)

Along with being a brand custodian for global beer giant Carlsberg, Spencer looks after much of our creative output. Non-conformist by nature, among his most daring creations to date was the 2012 self-promotional stunt he pulled on Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which earned Taxi Studio international notoriety and several gold awards for creativity.

It nearly earned imprisonment for Spencer too, but thankfully Bristol City Council didn’t press charges.

Along with two talented eyes for creativity, Spencer has an affinity with strategic thinking and a wealth of brand knowledge only rivalled by his ability to rewrite the rules. Proud owner of an unlimited imagination, he funnels his novel thinking into writing children’s books whenever he isn’t thinking up Taxi’s next (semi-illegal) activity.

Some say he’s a ‘borderline liability’. All we know is life at Taxi Studio would be frightfully dull without him.
