Build is a design studio, specialising in creating visual languages and identities for clients through art direction, graphic design, image making, moving image, and typography. Mixing bold design combined with wit we give ideas form, making the abstract memorable.

Clients include Virgin America, Nike and and a fleet of independents.

Build was founded in 2001 by Michael C. Place (Creative Director) and Nicky Place (Business Director).


We exhibit works, judge awards, and present talks. Our work has been published in over 100 books and magazines worldwide.
