About GQ Design & Marketing

GQ was established in 1993 by its two creative directors, Guy Gardner and Craige Quainton. Our company has grown year on year to become one of the leading creative agencies serving the property, pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. With offices in Duxford in Cambridge and Bank in the City of London, we have always attracted bright, energetic and multi-talented individuals to represent our company, its passions and values.

Creativity is at the heart of our philosophy and customer service runs a close second. Exploring new technologies, potential applications and ground-breaking marketing concepts will keep us ahead, understanding that nothing is more important than our relationship with you, our client, keeps our feet on the ground.
