About us.

In the age of the attention economy, we help charities and not-for-profits cut through, stand out and connect. We help you be the best you can be.

We specialise in strategic brand and campaign projects. Our texture comes from blending world leading creativity with insider knowledge of the third sector.

We’re young, but we’ve been around the block. We’ve led the leading agencies. And managed the most respected brands from the inside.

Our team is headed up by:

 

Stuart Youngs
Founder | Creative Director

Stuart has been working with leading brands for over two decades. For 10 years he led the creative output of the highly regarded brand consultancy, Purpose. His experience has spanned everything from multinational branding programmes to bootstrapped startup identities. He’s led national campaigns for government and created postage stamps for the Royal Mail.

In 2017 Stuart founded Texture, with the ambition to bring creative excellence and state-of-the-art AI together to create an agency with a distinctive and unrivalled capability.

He is a frequent conference speaker on branding and innovation, and has been recognised in over 100 industry awards.

Louise Kyme
Strategy Director

Louise has spent over 15 years in the not-for-profit sector including 11 years at the British Heart Foundation, heading up their brand and creative team, and winning multiple creative awards.

More recently, after working as a consultant with brand strategy and innovation agency Circus, as well as The Team, and research agency BAMM, Louise has joined forces with Texture combining her sector experience and strategic thinking to their world-class creative delivery.
