Design 23 opened for business way back in 1976 working primarily in book design and packaging for clients including Octopus, Times / Macmillan and others. Alongside publishing, we work on brand development, corporate literature, stationery and web design and implementation for a range of organisations from private banks to youth charities. We continue to work in the publishing and corporate sectors retaining a number of our original clients.

Our clients appreciate our straightforward collaborative approach to their projects.


We love strong typography, we love photos, illustrations and colour, and love putting them all together to produce things that make people react. To achieve this a project usually starts with pencil and paper before deploying the full range of products offered through Adobe Creative Suite. For web projects we use well supported open-source packages such as WordPress in order to deliver industry standard web sites that are completely within the control of the client. We tap into a network of writers, editors, visualisers, photographers, illustrators, print experts and web guys (design / build / SEO) to satisfy any brief.
