Who we are

Something More Near was set up in 2017 by Simon Myers and David Gunn as an alternative to traditional agency or consultancy offers.

After stints for BBC World Service, Carlsberg, Coca Cola and Omnicon, Simon co-founded Figtree, an award-winning brand consultancy that grew to include offices in London, Paris and Hong Kong and delivered significant projects for clients including Orange, HTC, Samsung, Arup Associates, JLL, Restless Development and SSAFA before being purchased by Prophet in 2013.

David’s career began as a WPP Fellow working at Y&R, The Futures Company and Landor Associates, before embarking on a decade of independent projects that ranged from collaboration training for the World Health Organisation to the establishment of Pyka, a creative tech company that has worked with Tate Britain, London Symphony Orchestra and many more.

Simon and David established Something More Near together to bring greater discipline and experimentation into the world of commercial problem-solving. Combining Simon’s entrepreneurial mindset with David’s enthusiasm for esoteric theory, the business harnesses distributed talent networks and progressive project design to make the most of a changing era of work.

Grounded in strategy but with an appetite for action, we’re here to help ambitious clients do great things.
