Raw is an independent design and digital studio doing good work for nice people since 2006. We work with people and organisations from big brands to one man bands, creating work with a strong focus on craftsmanship and collaboration.

We believe the working world is evolving and we’re early adopters of the smart + small model which means our team gets bigger and smaller depending on each individual project we work on. This means you get the best bespoke team for your particular needs and we can create a working environment that makes everyone happy and productive.

How We Work

The Idea

The Idea

We are ideas-focussed people which means that we won’t just be dressing up your brief and making it look pretty. Our aim is to create something for you with depth, interest and a human quality.

Value of Collaboration

Value of Collaboration

Regular collaborations are at the core of Raw and something we spend a lot of time investing in – searching out the best people for your project and putting together the strongest team possible.

Relationships & Results

Relationships & Results

We pride ourselves on strong and long relationships with our clients. We recognise that it’s people and a shared understanding that create the best work, so there’ll be lots of listening and discussion.

Design For Good

Design For Good

Each piece of work should be a story worth telling. For us, that means projects which help people to learn and grow in some way. And importantly, don’t cause harm to people and our planet.
