We are a branding and design agency that thinks all organisations in all walks of business deserve to look good. We provide creative ideas and beautiful design to tech giants, charities, and even the RAF, with a speciality in biotech, healthcare and life science companies.

With such varied experience we know that one size does not fit all. Rather we collaborate with organisations, identify their needs and develop the best creative solutions for them.

We have helped many start-ups and scale-ups, developing their identities, building their brands and establishing them in the eyes of clients and investors alike. And with more established organisations we offer everything from an out-of-house art department looking after special projects to a fresh perspective when branding or websites need reinvigorating.  

We are forty6 design and we make business look better.

We don’t believe that one size fits all. We prefer to find out about you and your brand and start from there. We work together to establish the things that you want, identify those that you need and together we formulate a plan that delivers results tailored to you. And if you’re not sure where to start that’s fine too – we can help with everything including writing the brief.


We know that starting a design project can seem overwhelming but we don’t think it should be that way. That’s why we are here to look after every stage of the process. From timelines, budgets and proofs to testing and training, we keep you constantly updated and manage the project and all its issues from the very first conversation through to launch day and beyond.


From logos, websites and investor decks to magazines, style guides and annual reports we help you choose the best formats for telling your story. And we don’t just design and build – we have printing, photography, illustration, animation and editorial all available if you need them. We are forty6 design and we make business look better.
