Design agency for

Exceptional Independent Food Brands

Allies Design Studio is our sister company, a well-established design agency renowned for a focus on exceptional independent food brands.

Our dedication to support independent businesses flows throughout and this organic connection encourages the two businesses to integrate and inform one other, often uniting our design clients with makers from The Merchant’s Table to produce bespoke ranges.

For over 20 years we have worked with creative food businesses that have a mutual ethos of respecting locality, seasonality, nature and independence. Our harmonic approach to design has ensured long-lasting relationships and continued business growth on both sides.

Allies aims to reach the very heart of each business that we work with. We spend time learning about and absorbing the culture of the company. By understanding the brand, and those that have created it, we can produce timeless designs that truly resonate with the core values of our client. We are not driven by trends, instead we take inspiration from the client to draw out the real essence of the brand. It is important to appreciate that for most independent businesses, design work can be a substantial investment and we take great pride that our final concepts stand the test of time. Many of our previous designs have gone on to become design classics and even to encourage developments within the industry. Find out more by visiting the Allies website.
