Former G1 creatives launch design agency


Paul McVey and Mike Pawlukiewicz, former creative and marketing managers with G1 Group, have launched their own full-service design and creative agency, Saved By Robots.

McVey worked as head of creative for the Scottish hospitality group alongside design and print manager Pawlukiewicz.

The pair’s new venture is being backed by James Brown, retail operations director at BrewDog, who joins them as an investor and co-founder.

Saved By Robots director McVey (above left) said,“Working for G1 was the best start to our creative careers and, through the years, Mike and I have been involved in a vast array of diverse projects and led the concept development, creative, branding and digital aspects of individual bars, restaurants, hotels as well as online retail stores, digital booking systems and corporate branding.”

Design director Pawlukiewicz (above right) added, “It’s so exciting to be able to set up our own creative agency and still get to work with some top creative and design talent we met during our time at G1. We are also lucky to have our investor and co-founder James Brown, retail operations director at BrewDog, to help guide us on the business strategy and sales side.”

G1 Group operates more than 58 managed sites and 100 leased premises under the Iona Pub Partnership brand.

Saved by Robots services will include branding, websites, social media content, graphic design and print work. More info:
