The Senior Team


Susanna Cook

A natural creative catalyst, who has been practicing graphic design for over 25 years, Susanna heads the Allies team and propels the connections, both abstract and practical, that accomplish Allies’ visionary solutions with infectious energy and passion.

Susanna is the first contact between you and Allies, listening and discussing your needs. Susanna oversees the design work and will often liaise with you throughout the projects. Susanna works closely together with founders and directors, on brand direction and guardianship.

A longtime supporter of independents and individuality, Susanna wrote her thesis on the Homogenisation of the High Street, while studying for a degree in graphic design at Canterbury College of Art.
