PAC Studio are delighted to announce that Brian Guckian has been appointed to the role of associate from June 2014, as a reflection of his long-term commitment to the practice.

This appointment formalises Brian’s further development of our team here at PAC Studio, to broaden our capacity as we continue to grow.
