Our belief is that quality design is not the exclusive domain of the city studios. At Kindred we enjoy a connected and collaborative studio culture. Together we apply our creative thinking to craft strategies and solutions that surprise and delight.
At Kindred, we act as an agile and integrated strategy, design and marketing service. This ensures a consistency of approach and a constant level of quality at every step. From initial concepting and design right through to project management and production, we are committed creative partners.
While every project we work on is different, here’s what we can do:
Everything begins with strategy. Because we take the time to explore, to listen, and to understand, the work we deliver is based on your unique needs. We’ll conduct workshops, talk to stakeholders and uncover insights about your target market. A considered strategy serves as our roadmap for the journey ahead.

Our design work is always informed by the brand. Building on the strategy, we establish new brands and we work with existing brands. Refining your brand means looking at every element, from your core ‘why’ to how you express yourself with consistency through values, visuals, positioning and messaging.

Some designers leave content up to clients. We think it’s vital to look after this ourselves, which is why we coordinate with trusted suppliers to ensure your photography, illustrations, copywriting, and anything else you need to tell your story, meets our high standards of quality.
