Hi, Mark here. I am a designer + founder of independent design studio – Superfried.

It all began in 2007 from a London bedroom. But now Superfried delivers brand strategy from sunny Manchester.

I develop design led solutions for domestic + international clients across multiple sectors. They vary in scale from start-ups + non profits through to global brands. When projects require I collaborate with trusted experts.

I do not have a unique process or approach. No one does. I simply ask a lot of questions + listen.

So, if you like the work please let me know, it’s nice to hear, and what you require help with. I will promptly reply to arrange a chat over tea or WiFi.
