Rowan started Naked Penguin Boy in 2001 (just after the dot com crash) with two partners after spotting a gap in the market for creative & engaging digital marketing.He has since focused on building Naked Penguin Boy into an established creative digital agency providing a wide spectrum of digital services from design and build, to online marketing and mobile.Rowan believes that Idea technology is the basis of forming any plan to promote a brand and while the thinking should be creative, unique or “out there” this must be balanced by practical & economical achievement of business objectives.
