Hello there, we’re narrative studio, a strategic design business.

We help to inspire the narratives that are invaluable when making brands and products relevant to people’s lives. Our clients come in all shapes and sizes and we help them to innovate with products, brands and service designs that are both commercial and meaningful.

Innovation means different things to different people

So, we’ve built five innovation models to help our clients innovate appropriately. Sometimes evolution is just as relevant as revolution, and competence is as relevant as reinvention; it seems obvious, but quite often it is neither discussed, agreed nor understood. Our models have a nice way of putting things into order and clarifying your thinking.

We balance business commonsense with design sensitivity.

We’ve gained our experience within various in-house environments, (in both brands and retailers) so we understand what life looks like on your side of the line. MOQ’s and dollar rates are just as meaningful to us as they are to you and we know that we are not designing for ourselves.

We empower brands to achieve what they promise.

Getting caught in the detail of running a business often means that it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. We’re good at challenging our clients with objective tools and workshops, so that your brand promise and product experiences are always joined up.

We’ve built our business around joined up thinking and end-to-end services.

Our interdisciplinary approach means that we bridge the gap between understanding fabrics and plastics, products and brands, insights and manufacture, and much more. Our interlinked departments allow us have real experts that can also get the best out of each other.

We are a micro international business and as such, our challenges are glocally defined.

Our size makes us agile, but our clients come to us with challenges that are global in marketplace and thinking. We reflect the fact that the world has certainly become smaller in terms of travel, communication and interdependent marketplaces, but we also value and celebrate the distinction and difference the world has to offer.

Our Work

People are the pride of our portfolio

It is the folk in narrative who make it what it is, and we pride ourselves on the relationships we forge with our clients and partners, because it is these relationships that define what we do.

Without the talented and dedicated people who make up narrative studio, we would not be in businesses. They span a wide range if individual specialisms, and their creative outlook keep us relevant, challenging and flexible in our approach to your creative and development needs.

Our Approach

Four studios,
one narrative

Our clients come to us with lateral design challenges, so it no longer makes sense for us to have a list of disciplines. Instead we have four design services that work together in order to deliver your product, brand and service narratives in a joined up way.

We believe that the two things are interdependent. That’s why we always contextualise our creative activities within your business needs.
