About us

Ali, Phil, Jim and Tich each did a tour of duty in the field of advertising before going AWOL in 2010 to work on their own ideas under the moniker of Dorothy. Our UK based studio now produces conceptual prints, products and artworks that are sold and exhibited internationally. Our work has been described by the press both as 'beautifully clever' and 'terribly wicked'.

You can get in touch with Phil, Ali or Jim at the studio here. Unless you want to have a moan - in which case just call the Daily Mail.
