Based in Manchester, Superfried is the award-winning design studio of Mark Richardson. Launched in 2007, Superfried collaborates with external specialists to deliver bespoke brand solutions for domestic + international clients.

As a graduate of environmental science, I provide a distinct perspective that aligns seamlessly with the ethos of sustainability led organisations. A principle shared by Superfried as a proud member of 1% for the Planet.

To deliver effective strategies + creative solutions, client collaboration is key throughout the process. This is achieved via research, a lot of questions + even more listening. Only then, can I begin to fully understand + resolve your challenges.

In addition to editorial recognition both online + in print, Superfried has won multiple awards for graphic design, branding + typography. However, my greatest accolade are the verified reviews below from happy clients, without whom this bold Superfried venture would not be possible.

If you would like to discuss how Superfried can help you realise your ambitions, please drop me a message + I will promptly reply to arrange a chat over tea or WiFi.

Having a logo that’s both professional and whimsical, but also distinctive and artistic was a tall order, but Superfried were really patient, and they understood what was required to achieve those.

As always with Superfried, the quality of the design, particularly the typography is amazing. I have been in the advertising business for 30 years, working on big brands in big agencies. As a design typographer, Superfried is easily in the top three that I have ever worked with.

Mark’s beautiful, multi-faceted artwork perfectly captures the Dsposal brand, highlights the complexities of waste and teases the idea of the circular economy. He was a pleasure to work with and a great designer. We will happily use him again.

We were impressed with the clean and dynamic designs Superfried produced as well as the persistence to push the design without complaint. We weren't an easy client in terms of being unsure about making a decision, but Superfried were open to trying new angles and playing around with ideas we had.
