Two directors of Button Communications Group have left the company to establish a new branding and identity consultancy, Laing & Carroll, in London’s Golden Square.

Ian Laing and Dominic Carroll joined Button almost ten years ago and had both been directors for the past two years. But Laing says the pair were in need of a new challenge.

“It was an amicable departure, but we just got as far we could go at Button,” he explains. “Projects are already underway for fashion and media clients, plus a major new identity for an unnamed music e-commerce venture.”

Currently operating alone, the pair will make several appointments in the near future. “We’ll be looking to recruit designers and new media staff within the next two months,” adds Laing.
