We’re a design studio formed in 2002
by Mary Lam and Dan Broad, based
in London, NW10.

We’re a relatively small studio and
we like it that way. It means we are
able to work closely on projects with
clients from start to finish and allows
a more collaborative approach to our
design process. Focusing closely on
the specific requirements of each
brief, we produce effective, creative
and original design solutions.

We work for clients both large and small,
specialising in brand identity, print, art
direction and illustration. That’s not
to say this is the only kind of work we
take on, we believe our ideas, process
and attention to detail can be applied
successfully to almost anything.

If you have any questions or want to talk
about working together, then please
drop us an email & we’ll get back to you.

Testimonials

“I have had the pleasure of working
with Bless on many occasions, they
have proven to deliver great, well
considered solutions to a number
of different projects. I like the ‘Bless’
experience, you get a healthy dose of
professional mannerism, tight ideas
and diligence. Reliable, consistent
and enjoyable to work with.”
Guy Featherstone
Design Director // W+K Portland

“Working with Bless is always an
incredibly brilliant experience.
Their work appears to be effortlessly
executed with a lightness of touch
that is so difficult to achieve. They
will always meet a brief, and then
also include ideas and designs that
are challenging and surprising.
In my experience, their enthusiasm,
knowledge and ultimately their work
makes them a joy to collaborate
with – one of the very best design
companies I have ever had the
pleasure of meeting.”
Grant Parker 
Head of Art // M&C Saatchi London

“I have worked closely with Bless over
a number of years on a huge range
of projects. We have designed logos,
packaging, books, posters, clothing,
ads and films, in fact most things.
Dan and Mary have no boundaries.
They are inspiring and prolific.
They bring an expertise energy and
enthusiasm rarely encountered. Their
work is visually memorable and every
project has been truly joyful.”
Mark Reddy 
Head of Art // BBH London

“Their thinking is disciplined yet there
is a wonderful freedom to its expression
in their design approach. They espouse
no particular single style, but always
bring a freshness, and often a wit,
to their craft. Dan and Mary are lovely
people individually – easy to work with,
but willing to say what they think –
talented, flexible,dedicated, jargon-free
and reasonable about timings and costs.
You can’t really ask for more than that.”
