Friends with (Brand) Benefits

We’re Kelly and Darren, designers, brand storytellers and partners when it comes to your design project. We treat our clients like we treat our friends and pride ourselves on creating a safe space for you to express yourself.

It’s our promise to keep things personal, you’ll be working one-to-one with us at every step of the way – less agency, more intimacy. This means you’re able to make the most of our experience and expertise. We know it’s this relationship that allows us to create bespoke design that is impactful and individual.

The Friends experience is about delivering world-class design with a distinctive aesthetic. With over ten years in business, we specialise in creating designs that are innovative and immersive – telling authentic tales through refined design. Combining creative ideas and Joie de Vivre, we bring a different perspective and personal approach. We genuinely care about the brands we partner with and have been collaborating with many of our clients for a decade or more.

After all, a Friend is for life (not just for logo).


Meet Darren

Darren is opinionated yet introverted, quietly confident with incredible vision. His passion for typography is unrivalled – mastering the intricacy of designing a font and positioning it perfectly. Most likely to be found perfecting colour palettes and pantones, Darren cares about every last detail, approaching projects with a sense of precision and simplicity, translating your brand into a recognisable identity that stands the test of time.

Meet Kelly

Kelly is the mistress of interior design, she’s also the face of the studio – pitching, pricing, planning, and pulling your creative brief together so we can work on it from every angle. She’s always been artistic, full of energy and effervescence, sparking with clients and buzzing with inspiration. Most likely to be found on the phone to our clients and presenting our creative concepts – renowned for her undeniable passion and drive.

Together we’re adventurers – we love to explore and get off the beaten track, get sand between our toes and bring a sense of fun to all that we do. Trust is so important to us – working collaboratively and creatively, from digital to spatial design, we craft memorable brands that are renowned and respected in their field – iconic and imaginative in equal measure.
