Studio Spotlight: Davies Leslie-Smith
"Davies Leslie-Smith is a small graphic design consultancy based just outside London, specialising in branding and packaging. Steve Davies and Tim Leslie-Smith set up the company in 2002 with a simple idea – do great design work for nice people. Generally speaking they have stayed true to that aim and with both partners fully involved in all projects their enthusiasm for creating inspired designs remains as strong as ever.
