The Hot Mustards.

Established in 1997 by Paul Bell and Nickie Miles, Hot Mustard has grown to a staff of 15 dedicated professionals keenly applying our broad skills to a wide variety of clients and media. Of course passion is a word used fairly loosely these days but for lack of a better word – we're passionate about it too!

We consider everyone at Hot Mustard a superstar.
Here’s a little bit more about three of them.

Paul Bell

Paul Bell

Managing Director

There are three things about doing what we do that I love most. The people we meet, the variety of projects we get to do and the constant change. We get to meet some great people who inspire us with the passion that they have for their products. The variety comes from getting to do lots of cool stuff in the airwaves, on paper, online or in code. And change - realistically no-one survives in the marketing world without embracing change, but as a business it has been key to us staying relevant to our clients and building an organisation that can endure. We celebrate 16 years in business this year - just teenagers really.

Someone has to keep us focused and help us deliver what we talk about. Well that’s Nickie - she says that sometimes it’s a bit like looking after her 9yr and 16yr old boys, but she gets a lot of satisfaction from seeing the projects through to completion. Nickie is one of the founding directors and is responsible for the design, production and media aspects of the agency.
