The Doppler Effect was founded in 2015 by our lovely founder, Danielle. After 17 years working for British startups and a few iconic brands as a 'jack of all trades' marketeer, she decided to make a change. Inspired by, to name a few things, the extraordinary Bowie, mindfulness and the time needed to write a sci-fi novel, she decided that what she wanted to do was create an organisation. More specifically, an organisation that existed to take creative thoughts and ideas and actually make them happen. And so, Doppler Effect was born.
Doppler Effect is here to help creators from any discipline or background make a living wage. Using years of marketing experience and a love for the unusual we provide creators with the tools and support necessary to make their ideas a reality. We're lovers of expression, and more than that, firm believers in the fact that everyone has something about them that makes them interesting. Sometimes people just need that helping hand.
We're here to be that. There's nothing more that we love to do than chat over some ideas. All we ask is that you bring us your love for what you do and the idea that goes with it. We’ll help the rest happen.
Danielle, Hadya and Jess

From mentorship schemes, to networking nights to even two student interns, Doppler Effect has been lucky enough to make a strong link with the University of Bristol.
Check out more about what we’ve been doing by checking out this article, written by our now Creative Assistant when she was studying there.
From all the British startups and corporates I've worked with over the past years, you will know of some of them very well and some you will not. However, the common link between all of them is that they were all started by someone who had the courage to try and make their ideas come to life. To that end, every single one was successful.
However, something I soon noticed in this start-up and corporate world is that most people were motivated by money. I'm not saying this is a crime but to me it's a little boring. Especially when what inspires me is definitely not that.
What inspires me is fantastic people with equally fantastic ideas. However, what comes with that is the realisation that, for myself and others, creativity can feel like a risk. Especially when the start-up and corporate world seems to hover around as the ‘sensible money-making choice’. As a result, these fantastic people then feel demoralized and where once there was a shining light of sparkles and possibility it's now replaced with a frightened person who does not know how to get out and do what they are good at - create stuff.
As I talked to more creative people I realized that it wasn't just a problem for people in commercial businesses, others groups felt the same, school leavers and students have told me that they feel they don't have the luxury to be creative and they feel under a lot of pressure to 'just get a job'. In fact, this was common with so many people I talked to - from school leavers to new-ish Mum's and Dad's who needed flexibility and money but also want to create wonderful things.
The Doppler Effect is here to help these people. To help creators, no matter who they are or where they come from, to make their day-to-day into something exciting because they are doing what they love. To help people like you.
So come chat with me about ideas and your passion for life, I'll put the kettle on.
