Spider, the PR and Digital agency, has announced the appointment of Steve Trayler as Lead Designer.
Steve joins from spending seven years at Waitrose, where he led a 7-strong team responsible for producing all the innovative and mouth-watering content that Waitrose magazine is famed for. Prior to that he worked as a Senior Designer at BBC Good Food.
