The Team

Your digital marketing dream team:

CHRISTINA JONES

Christina is the founder & managing director at Blacktype Digital.  A life long equestrian, she’s been involved in digital marketing since 2001.  She’s a Google Adwords qualified professional and one of the first in the world to hold the new Certified Digital Marketing Professional award

More important than paper qualifications though is her depth of experience at running profitable digital campaigns in B2B & B2C environments across a wide range of sectors, not just equestrian.  With 4 ecommerce stores of her own that act as digital test labs for the latest technology & strategies, she’s hard to beat when it comes to technical & practical experience.

Her favourite thing of all is retargeting advertising, but be warned that if you ask her about it, you might want to grab a coffee first…

ALICE OWEN

Alice has recently graduated with a Marketing Degree, and worked her way up from our internship program to become a full time employee. She currently focuses on graphic design and the many different social media profiles as well as building websites for various clients. She is Google Adwords qualified, and also holds a number of Digital Marketer qualifications. When not at work, Alice enjoys walking her cockerjack puppy as well as riding young Cleveland Bays out around the Bristol countryside.
