“Our team works across many related design fields. Each designer possesses a combination of complementary skills and talents in wayfinding, information and graphic design.”
Marc Jenkins, Head of Graphic Design
Our interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to problem-solving—a culture that blends architecture, environmental graphic design and many other BDP design services— delivers integrated solutions across international markets.
From our studios in London and Manchester, our experience spans more than 40 years, and we are proud to have a portfolio of projects and clients across the globe. Our dynamic team combines key creative skills and specialist knowledge, including wayfinding, graphic and information design, project management, product design, construction expertise and delivery.
Our work connects people to brands and places in a myriad of meaningful ways – it’s about deepening connections and influencing positive behaviour. We do this by harnessing the story, culture, values and vision specific to your brand, and weaving this into tailored environmental graphics that transform indoor and outdoor environments spanning workplaces to retail, hospitality, healthcare and public spaces.
Stretching far beyond aesthetics alone, our work promises greater brand equity, empowered employees and unique visitor experiences.
