Profile and approach

Design by St is a London based, independent graphic design studio founded by Steve Fenn and Tom Pollard formerly of the renowned Studio8 Design.

Working with clients both large and small, we deliver intelligent design solutions across a range of disciplines including editorial, identity, animation and exhibition. If you would like to talk to us about a project then please get in touch.

For us, our work is all about content and our relationships with those who create it. Design is nothing without it. We immerse ourselves in it on every project, drawing on a wealth of knowledge and passion for our craft to respond to it. We help tell stories, express personality and realise ideas.

‘Steve and Tom are fantastic to work with. They are personable, open to a productive creative relationship and can quickly grasp a brief, move it on and develop it and have an engaged approach to using different processes, papers and print techniques where appropriate. They’ve helped refresh our contracting publishing portfolio, designing strong work for our clients such as Westfield UK, the Olympic Delivery Authority and ARUP all of whom have been very pleased with the results.’

'We've worked with ST since its inception and I can't recommend them enough. With almost 100 international luxury publications annually, you'd imagine it would be a challenge for any design team, but ST's exceptional aesthetic eye and clarity of vision means that they are able to quickly turn our notes and random thoughts into concrete visual ideas. I genuinely couldn't survive without them.'
