Based in Borough, London, Uncommonly was set up in 2018 by James Collard, Sarah Glyde and Gill Morgan with the aim of delivering distinctive, crafted content, design and experiences for leading luxury and cultural brands. The three founding partners have a rich mix of experience at the highest level in editorial and sales and marketing roles across the arenas of publishing, luxury travel, the auction world and event management – a combination of skills that clients often find compelling. Between them they have done everything from editing national titles on both sides of the Atlantic, creating books and films for major brands, and curating VIP experiences for private banks, auction houses and luxury hotels. With Creative Director Sara Redhead, Uncommonly works with an extensive network of expert writers, editors, photographers, illustrators, designers and filmmakers.

At his previous agency James edited the GRAFF coffee-table book for Rizzoli New York, Red Life for Red Valentino and was launch editor of Robb Report UK. James co-founded Uncommonly in 2018.
