Studio

For 20 years, we’ve partnered with thought-leaders, change-makers and risk-takers, bringing their brands to life through design narratives that engage minds, inspire compassion and change behaviours. Our creative is fearless. Our processes, finely honed. Our pursuit of innovation, constant. Passionate. Purposeful. We are Clear.

Idea driven. Detail obsessed. Endlessly curious. We are a studio of damn good storytellers. Through strategy and insight, form and colour, type and scale, image and texture, word and sound, interaction and immersion, we craft brand narratives that leverage the full potential of every method and medium involved in their expression.

Start-ups. Universities. Pharma and technology. Fashion labels. Architects. Property developers. Cultural institutions. Government. Not-for-profit. Clear continues to work across multiple sectors, contexts and continents. Creating new brands. Elevating existing. Reinvigorating the tired, or neglected.

Matthew lives for that moment when an idea begins to form, and the adrenaline rush of needing to write it down instantly, lest it fade from memory. An incurable optimist, he also values the fullness of time, and the opportunity it provides for design projects to be thoroughly explored and formalised. Time in the saddle is his other great passion; one that saw him follow the 2014 Tour de France from the alps all the way to Paris.

Along with her funny accent and penchant for patting strangers’ dogs, Dayna brings to the studio a decade of experience across the arts, architecture, property and education. A conceptual thinker with extensive knowledge of brand, print, publication, digital and spatial design, she is at her happiest when talking shop with other creatives, ideally while drinking copious amounts of chai.

When Emily says beauty born of simplicity is the key to powerful communication, she speaks from experience: 10 years of it, to be exact… and counting. Sufficiently inspired by a career in design to leave the idyllic countryside of England’s Lake District, Emily’s expertise in arts and culture sector brand identity is a perfect fit for Clear. Her interest in knitting, a little less so maybe.

How would Clear manage without Laura? A multi-talented, design savvy multi-tasker, she combines a creative spirit with the efficiency of a process engineer, and the print, digital and video knowledge of a veteran producer. Results oriented during business hours, her focus away the studio is on making—illustration and writing, primarily—and pursuing interests that range from art and science, to comics and culture.

A nature-loving multidisciplinary designer with a passion for motion graphics, Zoe derives great joy from creating order out of chaos. When not drawing upon her lifelong obsession with art, design and visual culture to produce beautiful, memorable work, she is likely to be found hiking, playing piano or queuing early for concerts to get front row seats.
