We are Sherry Design Studios

And this is what we’re about…

 

We’re a company of creative thinkers, strategists, problem solvers, designers, copywriters and digital experts – all dedicated to developing the highest quality creative, results-driven work that changes the game for our clients.

From our studios in London and Sydney we work out what’s great about the brands we work with – the real reason people are drawn to them – and then we creatively amplify that in ways that resonate and catch the eye across any channel you can think of.

 

 

We believe that insight-lead design engages, encourages and enriches. We believe it can touch people – identifying, informing and inspiring them. It’s at the core of our approach and guides us through everything we do.

Creative intelligence does that and we deliver it through our tried and tested four stage design process.

Our Expertise

The reason we exist is to create effective, inspirational design and communications work for our clients that makes a difference to the most important people in their lives – their audiences. We work in the following areas to do that:

Brand strategy, identity creation & development

We work with brands large and small to help define what they stand for, who their key audiences are and how best to engage with them. We build memorable, engaging and inspiring brands that work everywhere - across print and digital platforms.

Brand strategy | Brand creation | Naming and positioning statements | Research and audits | Stakeholder engagement | Corporate identity | Identity guidelines

Digital & online communication

Making a brand communicate effectively across digital platforms is an essential component in connecting with your audiences. We consistently deliver seamless and inspiring online experiences for our clients that bring them and their audiences closer together.

Digital strategy | Content strategy and planning | User-focused design UX, UI | Mobile and responsive design | Digital content creation | CMS integration | Search engine optimisation SEO | Emails and newsletters | Animated banners | Animation | Social media campaigns | Campaign microsites

Marketing & awareness / campaign creation

Whether it's developing creative to stand out amongst the hustle and bustle of the London Underground, or getting a message across to people that don't want to hear it, or simply encouraging an audience to look at an issue from another angle - our campaign work attracts attention and alters perceptions.

Research and audits | Campaign strategy | Campaign concepts | Stakeholder engagement | Behavioural change campaigns | Internal communications | Art direction | Copywriting | Advertising print, outdoor and online

Print & information design

From perfectly crafted print to inspiring infographics and illustrations - we create beautifully designed communications collateral that reflect your brand and enable your information and data to connect and engage.

Environments & events

Whether in a busy exhibition space or refined dining establishment, we enable brands to express themselves and emotionally connect with audiences in the live space in ways that stay with the visitor long after they leave.

Event theme creation | Event branding and design | Conferences | Exhibition stands | Large format graphics | Office interiors and signage

Our People

Despite being on opposite sides of the world our people collaborate constantly and share key characteristics; principally talent, curiosity, a pre-occupation with fun and a fondness for hard work. They are given the room to grow and the space to play. Sherry Design is very good at what it does because they are.

Celeste

Celeste has worked in the design industry for over 15 years, the last 10 of which have been at Sherry Design. As Managing Director, her role focuses on leading our growing team forward, developing and shaping our offering to best support and deliver for our clients.

Sonia

Designer

Sonia is a multi-disciplinary designer who loves a good print job as much as exploring the digital space and sinking her teeth into a branding piece. When not illustrating celebrities in her spare time, Sonia can be found pondering her tattoo mishaps, reading up on Game of Thrones conspiracies or dancing terribly at music festivals.

Stu

Designer

Stu is an all-round design guru equally at home across brands, campaigns and digital platforms. Having clocked up nearly two decades in the design industry, Stu brings a wealth of insight and experience to the team. A man of (hidden) talents, Stu is our dress-making, chess-playing, real-ale drinking, heavy-metal playing senior designer.

Sophie

Designer

Sophie's sweet and mild mannered exterior swiftly evaporates in our weekly game of cards to reveal an ultra-competitive, win at all costs, card monster – she fits right in! As a senior designer Sophie brings brands to life across print and digital platforms and effortlessly combines creativity with an excellent attention to detail. A keen chef and an accomplished pianist, Sophie also introduced us to Friday morning donuts.

Lizzi

Project Manager

Lizzi is our lead project manager, responsible for the day-to-day scheduling of projects and the smooth running of work through the studio. Graduating from Goldsmiths College with a Bachelor Degree in Music, and having worked in design ever since, she liaises closely with clients to help successfully deliver integrated marketing campaigns, digital and branding projects across multiple sectors. While by day she is our super-star project manager, by night she morphs into a cat-loving, jewellery designing, bass playing rocker with local band Rude Intruder.

Chris

Designer

Chris is a multi-talented, cross platform designer - as at home working on UI as he is crafting a brand identity. A popular member of the team with both clients and colleagues alike, he can always be relied upon to come up with a creative solution in even the tightest of corners. Chris also teaches youngsters how to play tennis at the weekend, thrashes a mean guitar and loves to eat chicken. Chris really loves chicken. Really.

Myriam

Myriam joined us after a short trip across the channel, she's a fantastic integrated designer as well as a keen illustrator, dancer, singer and is constantly amazing us with French (Arabic and Italian) phrases we never realised we needed to know!

Jack

Business Development Director

Jack has led the growth and development of a number of different companies across tech, IT and business consultancy. He now uses his extensive network to share how Sherry Design can help and support companies across brand, digital and campaigns. When he's not beating the drum for Sherry Design, Jack enjoys playing tennis and dreams of hitting the Center Court at Wimbledon.

Victoria

Accounts

No written summary will fully do justice to our Disney loving, cocktail creating, Ed Sheeran obsessed financial controller. Having been with the team for over 10 years Victoria is an integral part of the Sherry Design team.

Sue

Sydney Studio Manager

Sue's been with Sherry Design since the beginning and now keeps our Sydney studio running smoothly. Her previous styling experience means she's always in demand on any photoshoots and gives her the only excuse she needs to secure 'props' with the company credit card. She is also the primary point of contact for press enquiries about the Sydney studio dog – Elvis.

Elvis has never eaten a deep-fried peanut butter sandwich but is open to offers.
