Steve Hutton
Brought up in Sheffield, Yorkshire. Educated by the Graphic Design BA (Hons) course at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, London, and by being given early responsibility for major projects at some of London's top design groups. After running blue chip projects for other design firms (e.g. ICAEW - Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, Pirelli, Rolls Royce) it seemed a natural progression to form Hutton Staniford Design. Based in London NW5 the client list developed to include companies such as: Boots, Channel 4, Coopers & Lybrand Deloitte, Esso, Letraset, Midland Montagu, Nabisco, Vickers, G. Wimpey. Hutton & Partners formed 1994.

Choosing a design company?
Did you know... most large agencies assign jobs to one designer or at most a team of three? It's pot luck who's free to work on your job, you may never meet the people who do the work and deal solely with a client services manager. That may be fine as the designer may not be so good at discussing work. Employing client services staff makes sense for the large agency, they can maximise the design production line by keeping designers infront of their monitors. BUT... we believe clients are better served by working with an entrepreneurial firm for whom your job is highly significant, whose experience is relevant and whose personal success depends on the success of a small number of clients they truly understand?

Are you still in London?
The growth of the internet (and family) in the 00s led 90 miles southwest to the open space of the coast. Going the extra mile to meet clients needs has always been our attitude to business and how we continue to provide clients with a national (sometimes international) design resource. So the answer to the question is no, but we still seem to be regularly in London.
