Howdy. We've been creating visual identities, and online and printed communications for SMEs, Third Sector organisations and well-funded startups since 1999. We're good thinkers, both creatively and strategically, and we pride ourselves in our ability to listen to, and understand, our clients to find out what's unique about them so that we produce work that's individual, bold and effective. But it's a crowded marketplace, so we figured you'll need a good reason to choose Howdy over another design studio. Here's 12:

For the second year running howdy have designed the exhibition and supporting campaign materials for the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal with St Martin-in-the Fields supporting homeless and vulnerable people. This year's theme is 'Pay attention'. The appeal encourages us all to take some time this Christmas to pay attention to those facing difficult times or who are less fortunate than ourselves. Last year's appeal raised well over £2.3 million beating previous appeal records, and we hope that this year's will raise even more.
