Who we are
Frankly, Green + Webb have been together for five years. Alyson and Lindsey were the founding members, Laura set up our USA branch, and Martha has now joined us in the UK as a consultant. Our experiences and skills may be different but what has brought us together is a passion for culture and a belief that digital can help more people access what culture has to offer. We also share a love of travel, crafting and cake!
