BDF welcomes f.r.a as supporters in 2023

f.r.a. is a design studio based in Shropshire, specialising in wayfinding, brand and placemaking.

Their empathetic and unconventional approach to design gets under the skin of a project to unlock the fullest potential of the built environment. Working at the intersection of graphic design, architecture and interiors, their projects celebrate place through clever design, craftsmanship, and even a bit of humour.

Collaborating with some of the most dynamic developers and architects in UK, the studio delivers projects for a range of retail, residential, office and mixed-use projects all across the country (and occasionally in far flung places like India, Ireland and Italy). Recent work at Borough Yards has put the studio in the international spotlight with a growing list of awards from D&AD, FX, Creative Review, Transform and more.

f.r.a. are proud to show that not only does great design happen outside the M-25, so do great places to work. Their growing 9-person team hosts a wealth of international talent enjoying a light-filled studio with a progressive culture that allows for flexible hybrid working, shorter working weeks, mentorship, studio retreats and a focus on wellbeing.

“We love our roots in The Midlands and can’t wait for a chance to celebrate design at BDF 2023. They’ll be a few of us attending the conference too, so please come and say Hi!”
