The power of three.

We’re truly passionate about what we do.
Need a safe pair of hands? That’s us, 3 times over.

David Johnston

David Johnston

As well as overseeing the smooth running of Red Facilities, David is a successful and prolific voice artist, featuring internationally on commercials, online content and video games.

Best known for his early – and traumatic – appearance on Cilla Black’s Blind Date, David maintains a cheery disposition and makes a great cup of coffee.

He was an early adopter of the band Motorhead and enjoys the work of Francis Ford Coppola, Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch.

His hobbies include cycling, vlogging and staring at old cars.

David is a founder and director at Red Facilities – his hair (and comments) are his own.

James Lyon

James Lyon

James learned his production chops in those three centres of audio excellence: Inverness, Aberdeen and China. After a brief flirtation with stand-up comedy – he slayed them by the way  – James realised his passion lay in making truly memorable ads.

He’s been at Red Facilities for 19 years and there’s really nothing he can’t handle. 1 more year and he gets a set of steak knives.

On those rare days when he’s not editing, mixing and generally making magic in the studio he’s either on one of his 5 bikes, supporting a football team called Inverness Caley Thistle or persuading his wife and kids to have yet another staycation.

Oh, he’s also a brilliant voiceover artist.

Max Howarth

Max Howarth

The slightly taller founding partner at Red Facilities, Max has been producing commercials for more than 25 years. With a pile of awards under his belt and a wealth of production skills at his fingertips you’re in the safest of hands.

He’s also an established (and occasionally highly regarded) voice artist with clients on six of the seven continents. Africa, watch out.

When he’s not at the studio Max can be found skiing, cooking and regularly embarrassing his children.

He’d like to state for the record that the new motorbike definitely isn’t a midlife crisis.
