Kinnerton 358 is a small consultancy centred on the individual skills of David Lamb, with a network of clever colleagues pulled in for their relevant experience and alternative viewpoints.

Kinnerton 358 started up in February 2014. Current clients and projects already include;

World Gold Council
Advising the market development organisation for the gold industry on its jewellery strategies, the creative development of its increasingly commercial ventures and the role of its own brand in the world of gold.

Tswalu Kalahari
Developing the strategic and creative direction of South Africa’s largest private game reserve and one of the world’s most absorbing wildernesses. David now sits as a Non-Executive Director on Tswalu’s Board.

Wright & Teague
Simplifying the options for growth open to these artist-jewellers, quietly  making beautiful jewels in the heart of London for over 30 years. Stimulating the process of creating new design concepts within their trademark aesthetic.

Already there is no typical project for Kinnerton 358; every involvement is designed around the client’s precise needs, fully and transparently scoped from the outset. We hope to deliver intelligence, actionable ideas and unexpected thinking for any brand or organisation that could benefit from a new perspective. In general, we look for clients who encourage creative contributions rather than just analysis but our work will always be based on meticulous research; there is nothing more exciting to us than a resonant fact and we try hard to discover them.
