East River is a creative branding, design & digital studio who work with ambitious businesses who value design and want to grow.

We collectively have 25+ years experience in the creative industry and our collaborative approach to delivering small to medium businesses and start-ups with strategic branding and design consultancy means if you value design we can work with you to tell your brand story.

What we offer

A full service branding design & digital studio to serve your brand's creative requirements

At East River we provide our clients with a full set of branding, graphic & web design services to compliment your business objectives, working closely with you to design creative solutions that capture the essence of your company and add real design value to your business.

What’s more, our crafted after care packages for websites and digital marketing are designed to meet the needs of your on going efforts once your project is live, so your investment remains performant and continues to add value.

We are a small design studio ourselves, so we are all about promoting small to medium sized businesses and start ups. We believe every company has a unique story to tell, so we don’t believe in cookie cutter solutions which don’t add value.

Our approach is to strategically craft solutions for each business that communicate the brand’s attributes through creative design and visual story telling.  We offer a collaborative style of working that ensures every business which is willing to invest in its brand can have carefully crafted design solutions that resonant with your customers.

Our approach

We create simple & honest design solutions that are creative and visually tell a story

Our specialisms

Creative services devised to help you reach the right customers and help your brand grow

We are passionate about combining our many years of design industry experience with the creative use of modern technology and tools to produce great results for your business. 

Whilst we have worked with lots of clients over the years across many different disciplines, we like to be specialists in our field. We therefore focus our studio’s core main service offering around these key areas…

Branding & Strategy

Branding is much more than an identity or logo. Rather than focus simply on the identity, we work with our customers in a collaborative way to identify the core attributes of your brand and devise a blueprint that lays the foundation for your brand's visual design language across all its touchpoints.

Graphic design & Illustration

Graphic design & illustration work is where we started and its something we are incredibly passionate about to this day. We believe it is an integral component of effectively expressing your brand visually. We work with our customers to develop visual elements which are unique to their brand and work to tell its story.

Digital & Development

We work with our customers to ensure their digital properties are aligned and reinforce their brand voice and product/service offering. We will work collaboratively with you to create unique website and app experiences that are true to your brand.

Art Direction & Consultancy

We can work in a consultancy or art direction based role offering our customers advice and input on brand design matters, typically when working with external contractors or vendors where design management is required and the upholding of overall brand experience matters.

Recent work

The Surveyor's House Tetbury

Website design

We recently completed the website redesign for The Surveyor’s House in Tetbury, a luxury and quirky holiday apartment located in the heart of the cotswolds town of Tetbury. One of the main objectives in the redesign was to ensure the character of the property was communicated, so we designed a slick and highly photo driven site to show off the unique charm and character of the property whilst also including the essentials of any holiday letting such as availability, rates and general area information.
