The All Night Listening Post is a blog by Arran Cross and Fern Merrills. It's made for sharing stories about style, adventure, design, making and doing.

Arran started The All Night Listening Post in 2015 to share his passion for well made, honest goods and the people that make them. In little over two years, he has built up a dedicated audience of like minded and interesting individuals from all over the world. 

Having worked in men's fashion for the last 10 years, Arran has an appreciation for style and a keen understanding of quality that permeates his work. In the quiet moments between projects, he's usually out in the great outdoors with his whippet George by his side.

With a background in writing and communications, Fern has supported operations at The All Night Listening Post from the start. Having realised her talent for creating imagery through photography as well as words, she came on board in late 2016 . She hasn't looked back since. 

When she's not behind the camera, Fern haunts local coffee shops in search of sourdough toast and the perfect flat white. She's also partial to a macaron.



In 2017 we launched Department Two, a creative content agency where we produce and consult on creative content for brands, makers and innovators.
