Allison Murray Design will be 11 years old this year and I am incredibly proud of the successes of clients I have branded over that time, Lynwood and Co’s confidence grew from a single shop to dominate the independent cafe scene across the Cotswolds. New Wave was able to break out of seafood supply to create a premium seafood restaurant. The Mad Hatters Bookshop in Burford is defying online shopping and making it the destination for book purchasing and launched the Burford literary festival. Even our own Fairford Town has seen the positive benefits of adding a welcoming brand look to their signage.
Now more than ever, clients are realising the impact a well-executed, inspiring and confident brand presence can do for their fortunes. It can transform and innovate a company, launch a product or revitalise an existing business.
I started AMD after moving to the Cotswolds having worked for over twenty years in London as a designer, then a creative director and then partner of London’s foremost design agencies, working on multinational brands like Coca Cola and Cadburys. My first client was Bob Parkinson and I created Made by Bob in Cirencester from this I found there were many entrepreneurs and business owners wanting to create their own brands and I use all my years of experience and knowledge to help them realise their dreams and create bespoke brands that represent them and the values they believe in. Whether it’s an estate agency like Butler Sherborn, a hotel like the Thyme, packaging for the British Hemp company or a new identity for Fairford and Lechlade business club, creating design magic is what I love to do.
