A studio by the sea, focused on brand experiences

Friends is a UK based specialist design studio that build creatively original, commercially focused brands. Brands that turn heads, raise expectations and demand attention.

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 commercial interiors to a new and unique territory, believing that this vision sets us and our ambitious clients apart.

In the early days, Friends founding partners Darren Friend and Kelly Thomas 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 for designing honest, original and enduring brands but more importantly for the strategic thinking that underpinned these.

At a time where industry is saturated with price competitive agencies, many businesses now just want quality which goes onto deliver results and high growth. A creative service with a human touch, Friends can provide long-term brand guardianship as well as expertly designed collateral and campaigns of the highest quality.
