David Mathews reveals how an open-plan office and origami oxen have helped build the agency’s success
Situated between the beautiful Georgian city of Bath and the vibrant city of Bristol, the Bopgun ( bopgun.com) studio is nestled on a farm in Wick with more than 40 acres of land, perfect for our office dog Dexter. Over the past decade we’ve been busy building brands, campaigns and digital solutions for a wide variety of clients including Sainsbury’s, London & Country, Hachette Partworks and Martin Grant Homes to name a few.
Our office space is open plan for easy communication. We feel it’s important that we can all work together, bounce ideas off of each other and keep the creative energy flowing. We completed a rebrand two years ago, where we commissioned local signage company Voodoo Design to create our new logo in stainless steel  – and we love it! With its own spotlight, this wall feature puts the Bopgun stamp on our studio space.
We love to be challenged here at Bopgun; in fact challenges are core to what we believe in. The bull symbolises that so we have a few reminders around the studio. From our origami bull  to our bull print, these inspire us to tackle any challenge and push ourselves every day.
As children, we were always told not to draw on the walls but here we encourage it. With our yellow dry-erase wall , we can get down all of our ideas on to one big visual space. Situated in our meeting room, it’s a great area for coming up with creative solutions to our client’s problems.
Upstairs is our photo studio  where we often shoot images of our client’s products to add to their website or for promotional material. At the time of writing, we are currently busy photographing Boka bars ( bokafood.co.uk) for use on an email marketing and social media campaign.
In November we are celebrating ten years of Bopgun and as a celebration we have created our very own Bopgun gin , celebrating who we are and what we have achieved. Commercial director, David Mathews, is one of the co-founders of Bopgun. He’s obsessed with customer journeys and focused on creating outstanding customer value.
