About me

Patrick Duffy is a design-led creative director with over 17 years experience in the industry. SHORT VERSION AIRBNB — FALLON — NO DAYS OFF — SLEAZENATION PROPER VERSION Patrick's creative journey began as designer and art director at SLEAZENATION magazine, recently described as ‘one of the world’s most influential style bibles’. This was followed by the founding of NO DAYS OFF, a design studio with a reputation for unique creative thinking, a love of craft and a healthy taste for the unusual.

His work is characterised by humour, humanity and curiosity, backed up with strong conceptual rigour and a subtle Northern accent.

We also worked with diverse range of independents – The Cut magazine, Wall of Sound, Nike 1948, Pure Groove, Jean Machine – which helped to keep our practise fresh and vital, and collaborated with some amazing people including Tim Walker, Wolfgang Tillmans, Fred Butler, Anthony Burrill and the Maison Martin Margiela team.
