Loose Collective is an independent design studio based in Manchester, UK with over 18 years of industry experience. Our work has been featured in numerous major design books by publishers such as Victionary, Rotovision, Thames & Hudson, AVA and Bloomsbury. We are also regular lecturers on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree at the Manchester School of Art. (We’ve even won a D&AD Award for our lecturing.)
We work with clients, both big and small, who are willing to think a little bit harder. We believe that great design and effective communication should always be built upon good ideas and not by succumbing to visual trends. We prefer not to follow the herd.
