We’re a clear-thinking design agency with full-strength ideas.
Strong visuals that inspire and cut through the noise. That’s what we’re known for. We collaborate with established brands, business owners and independent entrepreneurs, which include award-winning chocolatiers, tea experts and cider makers. Lingerie designers, F1 engineers and pudding people. We’ve even given Pamela Anderson a new autograph.
Our creative hallmark is our knack of distilling important insights into meaningful visual work. The final result might be a striking brandmark, a range of packaging or an 80ft wall graphic. Our aim is always the same – to grab attention and get people talking about your business for all the right reasons.
Branding and packaging design are our specialties. But our thinking often expands across diverse applications, from animated idents to bone china cups. Needless to say, it’s our mix of projects that keeps us on our creative toes. Here’s how we do it:
Working with you, we learn about your business and your competitors. Our strategic process helps distil things down to inform strong, original concepts.
Through clarity, we arrive at potent ideas, keeping our designers inspired and our copywriters sharp. Our creative process explores ways to catch the eye.
We collaborate with trusted suppliers to ensure pin-sharp results. From digital gurus to expert printers, everyone involved shares our high standards.
Established in 2010, Distil Studio is led by Neil Hedger and Fiona Curran. We’re as passionate about great ideas today as when we started in design, some 20 years ago. Before setting up as Distil, we both worked for some of London’s most highly respected creative agencies. Clients included Unilever, Jamie Oliver, Absolut Vodka, howies, Royal Mail, Waitrose… the list is long but we hope you get the gist.
When it comes to design awards, we’ve both enjoyed many successes over the years. But Fiona wins hands down with her coveted Yellow D&AD pencil. (She gets Neil to dust it for her.) Today, we’re still picking up prestigious gongs, most notably a Graphite D&AD pencil for our Springs’ Smokery packaging.
