Work that works

DBStudio is an independent creative collective led by Dan Barber, a Creative Director with over 25 years experience working with some of the world’s biggest creative agencies.

As a collaboration of world-class industry professionals, we employ strategic thinking to help articulate all of our work.

We understand that there’s more to visual identity than a beautiful logo, brochure or website, and with our collective background in the branding industry, we offer an unparalleled understanding of how to create and develop successful brands.

Our work covers a diverse range of sectors – corporate, lifestyle, automotive, hospitality, music – we tailor every aspect of our working process to suit the attitudes and ambitions of our clients.

We work in creative partnership with people, businesses and agencies.

We deliver work that works.
