About the core team


Katherine Heaton

Account Director

Katherine has over 20 years’ experience of managing accounts and projects, of all sizes and of varying degrees of complexity, across a variety of channels including advertising, press, events and digital. At Johnson Banks Katherine manages all key projects, ensuring that they’re completed on time and to budget, and is the key contact for most clients.

She managed teams and agencies, including Johnson Banks, working on hundreds of publications, events, websites and campaigns, and the development and application of the organisation’s brand over a nine-year period.

Katherine has a first-class BSc Honours in Management and Marketing from the University of Manchester and an MA in Literature and Visual Culture from the University of Sussex.

In her spare time she runs one of North London’s most competitive pub quiz teams, and goes on very long hikes in far flung places.

Daniel Keeffe

Senior Designer

Daniel Keeffe is a designer hailing from Banbury town in Northern Oxfordshire. Since graduating from Kingston University in 2014, his design career has taken him from some of London’s top-ranking studios to a position in Saigon, Vietnam where he worked for five years.

While there he won design awards from the likes of Red Dot and Monotype, picked up conversational Vietnamese and acquired a refined taste for all things with a fish sauce base. He returned to the UK in 2021 with a broadened perspective on design (and life).

Daniel joined Johnson Banks in 2022 to apply his skills to causes, organisations and people he believes in, and has already played a key role in projects for the Anna Freud Centre, the Royal College of Radiologists, the Global Commons Alliance and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Jonathan Lennon


Originally a student of architecture, Jonathan pursued an education in graphic design, graduating in 2018 from the Glasgow School of Art’s Communication Design programme. Before joining Johnson Banks, he worked in an advertising agency in Glasgow whilst pursuing projects that were important to him, either through his work with the Scottish teaching unions or a bio-tech start-up finding a cure to Parkinson’s.

Since joining Johnson Banks he has worked on projects for Brighton Festival, Imperial College London,and projects across the education and cultural sector including the landmark UNESCO World Heritage Site, Jodrell Bank and West Dean College.

In his spare time, he dabbles in speculative cartography, binge watches the X-files and dreams of joining a jazz band.

George Stockley


George graduated from UCA Epsom’s graphic design course in 2020 with a love for branding and typography.

After interning at NB Studio and JWT he began woking at Here.We.Go, working on a wide range of clients from the World health organisation to independent film directors.

He joined Johnson Banks in 2022, developing print and animation for the University of Cambridge before moving on to multiple projects across culture, education, public health and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In his spare time he’s often found with a pint in his hand, obsessing over all things obscure and planning a way to see the curvature of the Earth.

Jessica Mumby-Price


After a few years spent working abroad, Jess returned to the UK to study Graphic and Media Design at London College of Communication.

During her studies, she had the unique opportunity to work in design in Mumbai, sparking an interest in using design to affect positive change.

Following stints working at HATO Studio and in-house at the University of the Arts London, Jess joined Johnson Banks in 2022 and is working on education and start-up projects, including climate change and environmental projects for NGOs and the UK Government, and a major branding project for a New York University.

Outside design, she is a lido-swimmer, Hackney-ite and hunter for the best pastries in London.

Lizzie began her career as a Research Assistant for the Rhodes Professor of Race Relations at St Anthony’s College, Oxford. She moved into advertising to work at Boase Massimi Pollitt and Doyle Dane Bernbach during the glory days of 1980s British advertising. She finally switched to the design industry, where she worked as an Account Director at Smith & Milton and Coley Porter Bell. Key clients at this stage included Cadbury’s, Dulux and Tate and Lyle.
