Holmes Wood

Holmes Wood was founded in 2000 as a unique combination of complementary talents in sign and graphic design. They have since become one of Britain’s leading designers of direction and information schemes. Holmes Wood's work includes all aspects of wayfinding and signs, identities and print.

Every project is headed by one or both of the principals, Lucy Holmes and Alexandra Wood.

From our studio near Battersea Park in London we give clients incisive advice as a prelude to design work that is original and appropriate.

Design is a way of seeing. The handprint is mine; the texture of my hand is my unique "mark," but how the colors came out is random. This reminded me of my early design days—pre Apple Mac—when every part of the design process was "handmade."

This collection of things I’ve seen are all about texture and shapes. I’m currently working on a project that challenges how we "see" things. As a collection, there is a richness in color, but more importantly they are visual references for my work.
