Our clients choose us because we’re friendly, sharp and agile. Small enough to be responsive, with our global team at work while you sleep. Here are the brains behind the work.

Arthur Irving

Creative Director

Arthur leads the design and development strategy on all websites, and oversees all the creative work bubbling away in the studio. He’s a multiple award-winning designer himself with over 10 years of design industry experience and is known and loved in the industry for bringing on some of the finest young talent in design and illustration.

Clare Beagley


The person who makes sure your site and content is delivered on time, on budget and bang on brief. There’s more to Clare than her formidable overseeing: she’s worked as a producer director for 16 years at Channel 4 and the BBC, and is a specialist in video content, brand strategy and start-ups.

Emily Hawes

Production Coordinator

Emily is a graduate in English and Drama and has a fantastic eye for the detail. She works closely with Clare across project management, content strategy and schedules and helps our retainer clients with their everyday requests. She can often be found frequenting the local chip shop and harbours a love for ABBA.

Sophie Evans


Sophie is a senior designer who works as design lead across all websites. She has a precision awareness in identifying website trends across genres from macro to the devilish detail. We welcomed her into the Skylark fold straight from Goldsmiths in 2013, and we’re very glad we did. 

Ricki Galea


Ricki’s background is advertising. As both designer and musician it’s the visual side of campaigns that have always driven his curiosity. Writing and playing music with his band is what makes him feel most alive and for years he’s experimented with his band’s artwork and played with the idea “what makes people show up?” Ricki grew up in Spain, and loves drawing, his inspiration came from comics, posters and illustration. A few of his favourite artists are Jamie Hewlett, Boneface, Timba Smits and more recently photographer Wolfgang Tillman’s work. Ricki graduated in Advertising from Northumbria University.

Sandy Li


Originally from Hong Kong, Sandy grew up frequenting flower markets which gave her an eye for colour and a profound love for the simplicity of natural beauty. After moving to the UK to study Graphic & Media Design at University of Arts London, she now uses this love of natural beauty to inspire and inform her designs. Sandy’s work cuts through the excess to deliver a design that is beautiful and effectively simple.


Abu Musa

Lead Developer

Musa is a Computer Science Graduate and has been working with Skylark for over 9 years as our Lead Developer. His diligence combined with his love for programming makes him a great asset to our team. When he’s not building websites, Musa dabbles in photography and enjoys cuisine from his home country of Bangladesh.


Cai Irving

Emotional Support

Cai is the newest and most charming member of Skylark. Born a Welshman, he has settled in quickly to London-life, enjoying walks on the Heath. Cai is responsible for offering cuddles to the team when big deadlines are looming and making grumpy Londoners smile. In his free time he enjoys chewing plastic.
