Design with Soul

Alex Bates founded Flint & Kent to provide creative and strategic direction for retailers, lifestyle brands, designers and makers. Our expertise is in product development and brand building. We bring our clients’ ideas to market, managing every phase of the process—and always staying true to the heart and soul of their vision. We believe in independent makers and artisans, and we know that smart business, enduring design, and sustainable, ethical production are all equally important in creating products and brands of real integrity.
