About me

Since 2013 I have run Tristan Palmer Studio, where we have combine art direction, brand identity design, and website development to offer long-term creative support and guidance. In a world of yes men, our relationships are driven by integrity and transparency. Enabling us to offer an objective opinion, and confidently provide an effective solution. We place this at the heart of everything we do, not because we are precious about design, but because project success is paramount to us, and what’s good for your business, is in turn, good for ours. Around half of our work is created for the music industry, with the other half spanning a broad array of clients. We love the variance this creates, giving us a unique perspective and commercial insight which subsequently feeds into all projects we work on, regardless of sector. We work as a small dedicated team of specialists, growing and changing as needed for each project’s requirements. This enables us to remain agile, and ensures the best talent across all projects.

      • Stourport-on-Severn, United Kingdom
      • Full Time
      • run Tristan Palmer Studio (No surprises there). We are a Graphic Design Studio with a strong belief in the power of Simplicity, Passion & Ambition. Simplicity We believe less is more. Good thinking doesn’t need to be dressed up in gimmicks. Passion We believe passion creates purpose. Brands with purpose evoke emotion because they stand for something their customers relate to. Emotion moves people and creates lasting connections with consumers and clients. Ambition We believe that a stagnant brand is a dead one. Ambition to change the way things are done creates bold brands that stand out, and become market leaders. We believe in creating trends not following them. Creating solutions that are timeless is the goal. Who do we work with? Big or small, local or global, we enjoy working with a range of clients currently spanning the UK, France, Switzerland, North America, and New Zealand. These currently include: Bath & Somerset Council, Birmingham Architecture Festival, Converse, Luxury Leisure Furniture, RCA Records, Secretly Group, Sirona, Sony Music, Urban Outfitters, Virgin and Warner Brothers. What do we want? We are interested in working with businesses that share our values, to create beautiful work that communicates, provokes change, and helps businesses to overcome their challenges. Who are we? We're a small company (currently of two), we're based in Kidderminster (A stones throw from Birmingham and Worcester) and we've been around since 2013.
