Approach
The most fundamental element in our approach relies hugely on us listening to our clients’ needs and an understanding of the content and the specific requirements of each project. We believe in simplicity and seek creative and innovative outcomes that go beyond the surface and resonate with the reader/user. Each project begins without any predetermined technique or aesthetic, instead we aim for appropriate and elegant outcomes for longer lasting work.

A closeness to materials and production is a hallmark of our approach. This is achieved firstly through our experience in designing for a range of clients and budgets throughout the arts and culture industries. Secondly we work regularly with experts in printing, binding and sign making which help to ensure quality control throughout the project.
Profile
Daniel Chehade studied Graphic Design and Typography at the London College of Communication and went on to work for John Morgan in 2007. During the next three years at John Morgan studio, Daniel worked with clients such as the Crafts Council, Phillips de Pury & Company, Hamiltons Gallery, RSA, David Chipperfield Architects and Turner Contemporary. Projects ranged from catalogue and book design for galleries and publishers, exhibition design, visual identities and signage for museums.

In 2010 Daniel was approached by Raffaella Fletcher, daughter of the late renowned graphic designer Alan Fletcher, to help set up Fletcher Studio. The Studio was established to develop her father’s archive and continue to exhibit and publish new work. This included the design and curation of a series of exhibitions celebrating ten years of The art of looking sideways, culminating in the show ‘Mind over matter’ at Kemistry Gallery during the London Design Festival in 2011.

Whilst being a visiting lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire Daniel now runs his own independent graphic design practice based in London, working for a range of clients including Alan Kitching, Peter von Kant, The National Theatre and The Hayward Gallery.
