Bison Bison is a D&AD award-winning graphic design agency based in London. We create print and digital products for a whole range of businesses including some of the world’s most successful and dynamic organisations. We work across a diverse range of media – ranging from branding, identity, websites, animation, apps, books, brochures, publications, wayfinding and even coinage.
Our philosophy is simple: to create thoughtful, effective and original communications pieces to help our clients stand above the competition. We believe in the power of simple ideas underpinned by rigorous attention to detail.
The starting point for all our work is to understand the client, their marketplace and their audience. It’s from this foundation that we can begin to answer their design problems. We strive to create design that is functional, practical and intuitive to use. This is harder than it sounds. Making something look simple is easy. Making something simple to use can be very difficult. With every project we put ourselves in the user’s shoes. And we always sweat the small stuff.
We enjoy working with a network of collaborators – artists, illustrators, animators, developers, copywriters and craftsmen. This approach allows us to put ideas at the heart of what we do and often leads to a more satisfying, unconventional and engaging outcome.
Our client list includes a range of organisations, both big and small. Blue-chip companies include HSBC, UBS, EDF, Coca-Cola and Thomas Cook. Public sector and charity bodies include The Royal Mint, The Work Foundation, Big Innovation Centre, Knowledge Unlatched and Anti-Slavery International. Our roster also includes corporates such as TFT, Beachcroft, Bevan Brittan, YRM and John McAslan & Partners.
Bison Bison has been invited to talk, judge and contribute to exhibitions and publications around the world. We’re also rather proud to say that the New Reverses project for The Royal Mint collected the IACA award, a D&AD yellow pencil as well as the prestigious D&AD Black pencil and the HSBC Hong Kong Rugby 7s Medal Design picked up a Silver Award at the Campaign Big Awards and a Bronze Lion at Cannes Media Lions.
