Why London is a centre for graphic design

As the cultural hub of the UK and the second most visited city in the world it’s no surprise that London has become a root in the graphic design industry. London is home to fashion weeks, film festivals and some of the world’s most famous museums, and now 46 of the UK’s top 50 graphic design agencies. In fact, 6 of the top 15 agencies in the world have studios in London.

The creative industry in London is valued at over £35billion and employs close to a million people. Graphic designers being a huge part of those creatives working to promote London as one of the top design capitals in the world.

As Europe’s largest city, London opens its doors for creatives from all over the world to bring new trends and thoughts to the industry. With places like Hoxton and Shoreditch growing in popularity for those looking to express their creativity, graphic designers are flocking the area.

For those reasons it comes as no surprise that we chose London and particularly Shoreditch as our home. Being in a city full of other graphic designers gives us the inspiration to continually advance our own ideas and designs.

Our history

Before settling down in the heart of East London and creating Alchemist, Martin was based in Singapore where he was able to develop his design style and technique. He’s worked as a graphic designer for a number of large organisations including Virgin.
