Two former directors of Dialog have set up Soukias Jones, a consultancy specialising in corporate communications.
The group went live last week and is starting work on its first project, a corporate design assignment for an unnamed bank.
Founders AndrÃ© Soukias (left) and Grahame Jones (right) each take a 50 per cent stake.
Jones left his post as managing director at Dialog 18 months ago to join Tatham Pearce as marketing director. Soukias has worked as a freelance designer for Interbrand Newell and Sorrell and DMB&B Financial since he left Dialog.
“AndrÃ© will look after the creative part of our output and I will look at sales and account handling,” says Jones. The group will work exclusively on creative solutions and leave strategy to the management consultants.
“We believe more time should be spent using pencils, creating ideas which make all types of communications work. This will be our guiding principle,” he says.
