Soshell Team

we are soshell

A bespoke, adaptive and transparent marketing agency.

Born in 2021, a time that followed a year of immense digital growth, we have inhabited new-generation trends to meet the ever-expanding need for the digital world.

In the beginning, our Managing Director Shaun Bell, the successful entrepreneur of several businesses including Joshua James Jewellery & The Pen Alliance, had worked with a number of agencies for a total of 15 years. However, from bad experience, he decided to bring his marketing in-house. Since, the jewellery brand has seen a successful two years, inspiring him to partner up with his marketing manager to set up an effective marketing agency that truly dedicates itself to its clients; working with them in every way possible to meet their goals.

As your small business marketing consultant, mentor & ally, you’re giving your company the best chances at dominating its industry.  We’re not here to take credit for your accomplishments, nor are we here to argue your business goals. We’re here to offer you tailored marketing solutions that set you above your competitors. Campaigns that push boundaries and leave a lasting impression. That’s what we’re here for.

Ellie From Soshell

ellie clark


Ellie is our marketing obsessed Director. Since graduating, Ellie has done it all, from boilers to cakes, there’s not an industry that Ellie isn’t familiar with. Ellie loves creating unique and stand-out marketing campaigns, which is what has led to her heading up our team at Soshell. 

You might have seen some of the more ‘interesting’ campaigns Ellie’s worked on in the past – ever heard of Boilerman? 

Katie From Soshell

katie sayer

social media executive

Katie is our social butterfly. She graduated in 2019 with a 2:1 in Fashion Communication & Promotion, and also studied in New York at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She’s passionate about all things social media and is a fully-fledged member of Gen-Z which means she knows what makes them tick! She’s been with Soshell since the start.

Katie’s Spotify playlists are debatable but we let her play them anyway. If you ask Katie if she wants a coffee, she will always say YES.

Shannon From Soshell

shannon mugford

seo & content executive

Shannon is our chatterbox. After graduating with a 2:1 in TV & Film Production, Shannon decided that route just wasn’t for her so she began an online creative writing internship before landing her first agency role. This experience then led her to join us here at Soshell from the very beginning.

She has a slight obsession with dogs, as well as the controversial pickle. If Shannon isn’t the first person you hear when you walk through the office door, she’s probably on holiday.

Steve From Soshell

steve hillyard

graphic designer

Steve is our design king. He landed his first proper graphic design position in a printing company in 2004 at the age of 19. Since, he has worked with several digital marketing agencies, and remains a huge advocate of printed material.

Steve has a bit of a South Yorkshire/Sean Bean accent, and often misses the word ‘the’ and replaces ‘of the’ with ‘ut’… e.g ‘Lord ‘ut Rings’.

John From Soshell

John thompson

Business development manager
