We are an independent brand design studio specialising in food and drink, luxury, leisure and hospitality.

Our mission is to make the world a tastier, healthier, more exciting place by creating brands for modern businesses of all sizes.

Founded in 2005 by Philip Koh and Roly Grant, Without bridges the gap between graphic design and strategic consultancy to deliver innovative, commercially effective design.

We want to work with modern
businesses who share our values:

Work that
drives change

We thrive on relationships with businesses breaking new ground. From launching new products or communicating a new direction, we specialise in signifying change.

Creating the brands of tomorrow

We're experienced at working with new businesses and use brand design to help them move fast.

A new way of 
working together

We don't turn great ideas away purely on financial grounds. If you have a great plan, we will find a way to work with you.

Our work works

Our work delivers results because impressive design craft is underpinned by critical thought and commercial awareness.


We are atypical in our combination of academic, business and design experience: from Oxford and Cambridge University to McKinsey Consulting; from Richard Rogers Partners to some of the UK’s acclaimed design schools.
