Howie has been commended nationally and internationally in press and awards for his work (Press includes: WIRED, Creative Review, The Guardian, FastCo, Design Week.

Howie mentors start-ups and young designers, gives talks at colleges and tutors regularly at Kingston University. He has written for the magazines Grafik and ARC. Howie believes that design can create conversations and have an effect in the social fabric that we live in. Whilst Robin Howie has no ‘house-style’ his work is underpinned by a conceptual integrity and crafted execution. Howie’s work aims to create dialogues between people, objects, ideas, materials and places, these dialogues aim to create impactful communications that enrich the lives of those who experience them.
