About Motif

Like all great things, Motif started with a beer...

Whilst sat watching a cricket match with friends that worked within the planning industry, our CEO, Tom, was discussing his frustrations with the process of the his day to day job as a Town Planner. 

What became clear through the conversations on that day is that he was not alone... the inefficiencies and lack of standardisation was apparent across the industry. On that day the cogs started turning and the fundamentals of Motif were born.
