At the heart and core of Luminous Media is empathy and care. We listen carefully to charities, social enterprises and ethical businesses, and tell their stories through video, digital media, design, and media training.

We are a social enterprise, creating a better way through creative media, nurturing talent in people hindered by the traditional jobs market, and working for the good of communities. We are members of Social Firms Wales.

Luminous Media is the creation of Martin Downes and Dan Hughes. Martin worked in the not for profit sector for 14 years, including five years as a senior manager for a UK wide charity and Dan has 25 years of professional expertise in design, digital, and video.

What got us started (or our “Why”)

We feel the pain of the world around us, and want to help. We want to help charities, social enterprises and ethical businesses, with our communication skills, to get their message out in a clear and professional way. We also want to help and support people who have talent but haven’t been given the opportunity to grow in life – we want to help by employing people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Who we work with

We work with charities, third sector bodies, social enterprises, ethical businesses, and Community Interest Companies (CICs). Our passion is to serve this sector and together to do some good and make a tangible and lasting difference.
