Fraser Muggeridge studio (Fraser Muggeridge, Sarah Newitt, Luke Hall, Carol Montpart, Daniel Nørregaard and Elena Papassissa) is a graphic design company based in Clerkenwell, London.

Throughout a wide range of formats, from artists’ books and exhibition catalogues to posters, maps and websites, the studio prioritises artists’ and writers’ content over the imposition of a signature style. By allowing images and texts to sustain their own intent and impact, each project is approached with an elegantly pared-down aesthetic, with colour, typography, paper stock and format playing a key role in arriving at a sympathetic yet subtly alluring object.

Fraser Muggeridge founded and is a tutor at Typography Summer School, a week-long programme of typographic study in London for recent graduates and professionals.

This website has been designed with and coded by Wolfram Wiedner.
