Robson Dowry is an independent branding and design group with a track record of over 30 years. Our principled, rigorous approach to design sets us apart in a world of industry babble, clichés and economic uncertainty. It’s why we are chosen by brands with something special to preserve and promote, from Spain’s leading winemaker to the global leader in maritime navigation.

Everything we do is underpinned by a respect for our craft and a belief in doing things in precisely the right ways. This is how we help brands navigate successfully through a world of increasing complexity, clutter and confusion – and quick-fix solutions. Every project, whether branding, literature, packaging or a website, is part of a long-term investment in a brand’s successful evolution.

Our attitude is defiantly ‘media-neutral’, so if digital will work best, we will use digital – but only if. Nothing happens just because it’s the latest trend; everything springs from a set of core ideas.

This is why we have a long record of effective design solutions, including:

  • Revitalising the visual identity of world-class organisations like the Admiralty UKHO and the Environment Agency
  • Refreshing leading wine brands to compete globally
  • A new way of looking at donation issues
  • Creating the brand and packaging for a new family of speciality craft ciders
  • Producing a flagship magazine for the Met Office that has achieved extraordinary levels of reader engagement
  • Developing an innovative new beer range for Wadworth
  • Designing an innovative online business support hub for the Bristol and Bath region
  • Giving the UK’s best selling Three Barrels brandy range a new lease of life
