About - Design House Studio Ltd.

About

Design House was founded by William Jeffree and Sean Tidy; two old school friends who had both been working independently in the design industry for over a decade.

They thought it’d be a good idea to start their own design studio in Berkhamsted, so they wouldn’t have to drive to work anymore.

They opened their new design studio on Berkhamsted High Street in November 2013, and have been working happily with local, London and international clients ever since. The mission statement of the studio is pretty simple: Enjoy going to work, make awesome things while you’re there, and go home with a sense of joy and lightness.

We recently completed this 1.2m wide print for a client. The 40th birthday gift contains 126 album covers that chronicle a ‘life in music’. Wonderfully thoughtful gift. Not sure I’d trust anyone to get mine right - too many guilty pleasures. #wallart
Hello Instagram Land, we’ve been away from you for a while, but we are back. Here’s a cool sweatshirt we made for @chilipeppers #peachy
The first run of 50 have arrived back from the printers, and the colours are amazing. We printed on a middle weight, white stock with a slight texture. Cannot wait to get everything else finished. Plenty more to do before we launch summer 2020.
We have four new prints available in the studio. Limited editions. Online soon. Full disclosure of the designs later this week. 
There is still plenty of good stuff available in our studio and online now. Link in bio #art
Jimi is in the window today. It’s an early 70s poster in pristine condition. Salvaged from a lock-up in Los Angeles. The photo is a portrait from the 1968 Electric Ladyland shoot. Those with a keen eye will notice that the image is flipped from the original. It’s a rare one alright! Framed and ready for a new home. #jimi #jimihendrix #hendrix
We had initially planned to put gold in the boxes around the text, but the customer who purchased the piece prior to the golding had another idea that, actually, compliments the piece in a more subtle way. It’s seems there is such a thing as ‘too much gold’. Who knew? #sold
I love goooooold
We’ve been adding some gold foil to this A2 skull print. Now available in the shop or online. It really packs a punch and catches the light in all sorts of wonderful ways. It’s a delicate process, that needs plenty of time to dry, followed by some light brushing to remove the excess. By building up multiple layers you get a textured finish that sparkles from different angles. #skull #gold #goldenskull #art #artprint #goldfoil
Two of the new prints we have for sale in the studio//gallery at Design House. These were designed and created by us, and available as a limited edition of 5 regular, and 1 hand finished, gold foil variant of each. The ‘Circus’ gold foil is still in progress at the moment. It’s quite a time consuming and very delicate process that requires multiple layers. So, trying to squeeze foiling time into a busy studio schedule is proving a wee bit difficult this month. 
A2 prints in black wooden frames.
420x594mm. Available online or in the studio.
Louis Prima A2 print, finished in gold leaf. A2 framed and ready to wrap/hang.
