I’m a partner at Hotfoot Design, an award-winning creative agency based in Lancaster.

I previously co-founded the digital advertising start-up Azullo and worked at the Red Consultancy in London. In my early twenties I co-founded a design magazine.

I now live in Lancaster with Louiza Rabouhi and our children.

You can follow me on Twitter @guycookson, this is my Linkedin profile, I have some playlists on Spotify, I post photos on Instagram, and you can send me a message here.

I support the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) in memory of Nayeli Cookson Gonzalez – and you can too by donating here.

I’m interested in tracing my family background. My grandmother, Nina Luschwitz, was born in India, to parents of mostly German and Portuguese/Indian descent. She married my grandfather, whose father was from Dublin, when he was posted to India during the Second World War, after my grandmother had lost her first Dutch husband in a motorcycle accident. If you can help with that, let me know.

Life moves pretty fast
