    I founded Long White Digital in March 2011 with a commitment to providing affordable websites to charities and ethical businesses. With a background in healthcare, education research and the arts this has been a natural fit.

    The agency is small enough that, as well as managing the operational side of things, I’m just as likely to be involved in the creative hands-on of a project which helps keep everything joined up this end.

    Robb Green

    Design

    Robb has been trying hard to look edgy and angular at various digital media agencies since 2005. He’s delivered award-winning campaigns and websites for clients across the charity, membership, fashion and arts sectors, and has had work and malformed opinions shared in Creative Review, .net magazine, Digital Arts, Computer Arts and NMA, among others.

    Robb’s head is so abnormally large that Young’s Suit Hire only have five top hats in the whole country that are big enough for it, and even those are a bit of a squeeze. He really likes Japanese sports cars of the 1980s, hi-tops and electronic music, and nearly released a single in 2007.

    Robb also works at Rockpool Digital.
