An independent graphic design studio, set up by Sam Wolfson in 2004.

Following my BA Hons degree in History of Art at Sussex University I went to the London College of Printing to study typography and graphic design. I worked for Phaidon Press, with Alan Fletcher as my art director, at both their London and New York offices. Then for Simon Esterson at Esterson Associates and Nick Bell at UNA, before setting up my own graphic design studio.

My main emphasis is to create books, posters and identities in the broad field of the cultural sector. I do mainly printed matter. I like the old and the new, the obvious and the hidden. With each project I undertake I strive to fulfil my and my client’s vision with relevance and beauty. My idea of working is defined by working ‘with’ instead of ‘for’ somebody.
