We are Cog Design

We are a team.
Working with clients in
the cultural sector, we
create stunning, engaging,
intelligent design that
inspires audiences,
provokes action and
delivers results.

We are passionate about
design but never precious.

We do win awards but
our favourite rewards are
the partnerships with
happy clients.
