A studio by the sea, focused on brand experiences

Friends is a UK based brand and graphic design studio led by Darren Friend and Kelly Thomas specialising in brands, visual identities, print and digital communications, environments and campaigns.

Founded on the solid belief that the most successful businesses and organisations are defined by confident, intelligent design and the smallest and loveliest of details. We are driven by a desire to create expertly crafted work, refusing to offer generic ‘paint by numbers’ and ‘house style’ design, instead we take brands and environments to a new and unique territory, believing that this vision sets us and our ambitious clients apart.

In the early days, we were fortunate enough to work with a collection of visionaries, clients who recognised the value of our fresh approach, Friends began to build a reputation not only for designing honest, original and enduring brands but more importantly for the strategic thinking that underpinned these.

A brand that works as it should, and keeps doing so for more than just a few years, reaches out to your customers and attracts new ones, helps you stand head and shoulders above your competitors in a crowded market and works seamlessly across all channels. In a nutshell, these are the types of brands we design and without wanting to blow our own trumpet, these brands also look pretty great!
