Leiths School of Food and Wine

"We chose to work with Special Design Studio because we were confident that their intelligent approach to design would make a success of our project. We are thrilled with the results.

St. Giles Gin

"The work looks fantastic and I am very excited and proud to be able to share it more widely now as we commence using it with schools and teachers. We have plans to add other projects to it and I’m sure it will be a great resource for UCM."

University of Cambridge Museums

"Working with Special Design Studio was as close to a perfect commission as possible; we ate a pie together, looked through some very cool vintage graphics references and chatted over my poorly communicated brief – which Scott completely understood and took up with an expertise and creativity that surpassed my expectations; turning it into the perfect logo design at very short notice. He really 'gets it', is well versed in the history of design and is a thoroughly nice chap to boot."

Risk & Policy Analysts

"We looked at 1970’s Italian coffee logo’s, old Renault fonts and brand designs together. I knew then we would get something unique for Le Petit Tour. The series is fun and is inspired by the holidays I took as a child with my family to France. I wanted something that reminded me of those 80’s brands synonymous with the France of my childhood – Peugeot, Renault, Systeme U, Champion, Miko ice cream. The logo is superb and fits perfectly with the images. It’s classic and alludes to cycling's heritage. Chapeau Special!"

Ace Tennis Camps

"It was a big deal for the Norwich Society to commission what was for us a large and expensive piece of work from Special Design Studio. From the start we felt that they understood our needs and took us through a rigorous process of discussing what our new website was aiming to achieve in terms of functionality and communication with a wider public. The whole process has caused us to reassess the information we provide for members and the public, and prompted us to focus more on our users’ needs. We are very pleased with the look, layout and navigability. The ability to join the Norwich Society on-line is already encouraging new members and we trust that the site will become an attractive resource for the general public as well."

The Norwich Society

"I found the whole process of working with Special Design Studio enjoyable and stimulating. They displayed an intuitive sense of how I wanted the logo to begin telling the story I wanted to tell. They were quick to share their design ethos and approach and this made it easy for us to develop an engaging conversation over the course of the design period – ensuring that I had confidence in their understanding of my aspirations. I look forward to continuing to work with them as we find new ways for the brand to reflect the ethos, activities and achievements of the business."
