Paul Stafford

Co-founder & CEO


London, UK

With over 15 years industry experience Paul has worked with some of the world's largest brands, creating, expressing and evolving brands to engage with audiences in compelling ways.

In 2009 Paul co-founded DesignStudio alongside business partner and fellow designer Ben Wright. Their vision was to bring design back to the heart of the business and allow designers to play a large role in every step of the process. The business also prides itself on the relationships it builds with clients.

The simple idea, to ensure that DesignStudio recruit the best designers and thinkers and work with the best clients and partners. Good People = Good Work. In 2013 Paul relocated to San Francisco to open DesignStudio's second outlet with the studio opening in 2014.

Recent rebrands have included the English Premier League, Logitech and Airbnb, with the launches seeing some of the biggest social media reactions seen to rebrands in modern times.

As a leading branding expert, Paul has spoken at a number of international design events and organisations across North America, China and Europe giving insights into branding processes, building client relationships and setting up an agency.
