Graham Clifford is a world-class, independent brand designer whose passion is brand development and consistency. His work stretches visual design across all forms of communication in a way that distinguishes a brand and sparks intense consumer connection.
As a brand designer, Graham uses his expertise in visual imagery to tell stories. He collaborates with creative agencies, as well as directly with businesses, in all aspects of visual communication including brand identity, advertising, and graphic design.
Graham’s approach to visual brand consistency is both unique and exceptional. As a second-generation graphic designer with a foundation as a typographer, Graham was trained by his father and then went on to work and continue learning at many of the world’s most prestigious creative companies in London and New York, including: Collett Dickenson Pearce, Gold Greenlees Trott, Chiat/Day, and Ogilvy.
As Graham has honed his exceptional talent, he has been acknowledged by his industry and peers with almost every honor available today, including those from: Cannes, Britain’s D&AD, The One Show, Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club, and the Art Directors Club. In addition, Graham was voted President and Chairman of the Type Directors Club where he served on the board for more than a decade, and currently holds the title of Chairman Emeritus.
But be careful, because in addition to how seriously he takes his craft, Graham also enjoys the odd pint. With the only studio in Manhattan with access to 12 beers on draft, he finds the pub directly below his studio an excellent source of inspiration and a fine place to take a meeting.
