For over 25 years, Jon has channelled his passion for beautiful design, build quality and detail into designing commercial and residential interiors and furniture. Following a degree in Industrial Design from Brunel University, his initial start in design was in a furniture manufacturing company and then working in retail design and designing and managing build for agencies including, Fitch, Imagination, Studio Hagger and Corsie Naysmith before setting up Camouflage, a retail design and branding agency specialising in the design and build of commercial projects.
In 2010, after renovating his own home, Jon realised that his skills and passions were even more suited to the residential market and then set up Hamilton King Ltd. He has since been ploughing his efforts into designing, building and renovating contemporary homes for private clients and developing bespoke furniture.

She has enjoyed bringing this expertise to the creative design business of Hamilton King in the form of marketing, business administration, and finance. She has always been passionate and inspired by property development and art collecting since as far back as she can remember.
After renovating their family home, Gail realised that building a business assisting clients to have the home of their dreams was where she wanted to focus her efforts. Gail enjoys being active in sport – running, yoga, skiing and was once a junior Olympic gymnast. She loves adventure travel, is a keen cook and wine enthusiast. Gail lives in Kew, Surrey with her husband “Jon”, two children and their fox red Labrador.
