Brightful was started in February 2017 from a studio space above a double garage at Richard and Camilla’s home. They called the company Brightful after a camping holiday in France as they wanted their creative consultancy to be ‘full of bright ideas’. The business started providing consulting for agencies in London and Southampton and grew from there.
Brightful’s Winchester studio is next to Richard and Camilla’s vegetable patch and close to their chicken coop. When they are not looking after clients, they can be found spending time with their three children, tending to their veg patch and looking after their chickens.
Brightful’s Winchester Studio is situated 30 mins drive from Southampton and Basingstoke, 40 mins drive from Oxford and Newbury and less than 1 hours’ train journey to London Waterloo. Brightful’s Winchester studio is suited to support client meetings in London, Southampton and the South West of England.
As a remote creative consultancy, Brightful can service clients in any location around the world.
Winchester is a historic city in Hampshire, on the edge of England’s South Downs National Park. It’s known for it’s medieval Winchester Cathedral, where Richard and Camilla’s middle son is a chorister and sings regularly with the world-class Winchester Cathedral Choir. The city is also famous for its beautiful Christmas market.
Winchester is famous through Arthurian legend as the capital of England and for it’s Great Hall, where the Knights of the Round Table resided. The city is home to Winchester Cathedral, with the longest Gothic nave in Europe, the University of Winchester, The Pilgrim’s School, Winchester College and is the resting place of Jane Austin.
Whilst it is a historic town Winchester is filled with exciting creative and technical talent. It has a vibrant, modern, creative and technically advanced community. For instance, we are situated 15 mins away from IBM Global Innovation Centre at Hursley, which has been responsible for many groundbreaking innovations.
