Hello and welcome

Our Story


The Media Collective was established in 2003 by Matt Wattis and Jez Currin to provide affordable graphic design to small businesses. It grew from an attic office to a garage to our current location in The Piggeries, a converted pig shed on a farm in Coleshill where we now employ a team of amazing, hard-working, fun-to-be-around people who make the magic happen.

Ben Wattis came on board early in the journey to set up a large-format print department, which grew quickly and continues to be an unlimited source of new ideas for us.

In around 2010 we decided to focus on what was quickly becoming a new area of expertise and passion for us: the education sector.

Today we operate as a core team that exists to help schools become the best they can be. We are connected to a wide group of freelancers that provide specialised skills where required. We own and make Inflow display boards and Wonderwalls and also birthed The Print Handbook - Hi Andy!

In 2017, in line with our values, we established a charitable trust, The Sponge, to provide a better way to give money away. We are very excited about seeing how this grows!
