Founded in 2008 by British designer Rick Banks and joined in 2013 by Annabel Welbury, Face37 is a London based design studio, focusing on the fields of branding, graphic design and typography.
Our philosophy is simple. Ideas.
The very best design comes from an idea, an idea that anyone can understand and appreciate. Whether that’s working with a strategic idea for a multinational or a subtle idea designed within a piece of type, our way of working is to find a simple idea and express it in it’s simplest form. Whilst simplicity is not the primary aim, it is the by-product of a good idea.
This desire to execute good ideas provides the foundation of the studio’s design process.
Face37 has won numerous awards, including a TDC from the Type Directors Club in Tokyo, being featured in the Creative Review Annual, as well as recognition from D&AD, Creative Circle, TDC (NY) and ISTD. Their work has been published internationally in various journals, books and magazines and their design products have sold worldwide from the Tate Modern in London, to the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Rick Banks lectures around the world on typography and branding.
