About Bureau.

Bureau is a graphic and web design studio in Sunderland, UK.
We work with organisations like yours to solve problems through design.

Our skills.

Our best work is in identity design; web design & front-end development; print, layout, and typography; and illustration.

Packaging, infographics, publication design, large format and venue/stage design are also firmly within our capabilities.

Our approach.

We strive to build collaborative, transparent, long lasting relationships with our clients.

Developing a deep understanding of your business, product, or service allows us to uncover your needs, deliver the most effective and appropriate design, and solve your problems .

We constantly review both our work and our processes in order to maximise our effectiveness - improving our output whilst enhancing our relationships. Applying our learning to our new projects allows us to deliver the best work we can.

Our process.

By adopting a simple, Agile-inspired working process, we strive to provide a service that is reactive your changing needs and priorities. We aim to deliver something of value at every stage of a project.

Of course, regular and concise communication is an integral part of this process. We keep you informed and involved throughout, and we’re always available if you need us.

Our team.

Bureau is intentionally small, ensuring we are able to offer a consistently first-class service.

With over a decade of experience, our core team of four is able to meet most requirements. We always seek to expand our skill set and work hard to develop ourselves professionally on each project we undertake.

Where projects require skills or services outside of our immediate capabilities, we work with a trusted group of skilled freelancers and subcontractors.
