Grade Design: An Introduction

We are an award-winning, London-based graphic design studio serving the arts, commercial, charitable and publishing sectors. We specialise in literature, book design, branding, typography and art direction.

Established in 2000, Grade was founded by Peter Dawson and has gone on to earn a reputation for excellence in achieving creative, innovative and successful design solutions.

Having worked on a range of high-profile projects, we consistently punch above our weight in terms of the quality of our output and the range of projects we do. We are passionate about our work, and our creativity and experience enable us to create unique and exciting designs, taking pride in the attention to detail we bring to every aspect of the creative process, regardless of the scale of the project.

During the design process, client input is essential and invaluable. With the channels of communication always open, and direct contact available for the client to speak with the designers and director on a project, we interpret and contribute to a client’s needs more responsively, flexibly and efficiently. Both existing and new clients have commented that they appreciate being able to get an informed and direct dialogue, and this is one of the many reasons why clients continue to use us year after year (even decade after decade in some cases).
