Andrew Larking

The former Reading Room creative and board director has led award winning teams working with clients such as the National Archives, Ofcom, Skoda, the education sector, and several British museums.

Deeson clients include a wide range of companies, celebrities and membership organisations including Johnson & Johnson, ITV, Shepherd Neame, Robbie Williams, Jimmy Page, the Royal Meteorological Society, and the Royal Collection Trust.

Andrew has held creative posts at the Natural History Museum, Science Museums, and Microsoft Research. He was previously a senior lecturer at Norwich University and Ravensbourne College, in addition to holding a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University.

"I decided to join Deeson because of the unique way they work and their plans for growth. Deeson are already one of Europe’s leading Drupal agencies, and are recognised as the most capable Drupal agency in the UK. This coupled with their desire to explore new and emerging technologies in interestingly creative ways was a strong pull.” said Andrew.

Andrew will work between our Canterbury and new London office, also taking advantage of Deeson’s commitment to distributed work. Deeson have a distributed, agile working model enabling our permanent team to be comprised of experts around the UK and Europe.

"I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s made possible by collaborating with Andrew. This is an opportunity to enhance our proven build services by providing creative strategy. We cultivate an environment where the best people in diverse disciplines can get together and create amazing work.” commented Tim Deeson, the agency’s managing director.
