Beast is an exciting new venture from designLSM’s long standing client, the Goodman Restaurant Group.
Hidden away on Chapel Place in London, this unique fine dining concept offers diners shared dishes of the finest Norwegian king crab and two kilo cuts of steak. Their client was originally inspired by the communal meals served in rustic huts to the Norwegian fishermen who catch the king crabs….

Farleigh golf club

It’s always great to hear positive feedback from our clients and this quote from Marc Hayton, our long standing client at Farleigh and Foxhills, really takes the biscuit!

Thank you to Marc and the Farleigh team – you can find out more about Farleigh here: www.foxhills.co.uk

“Farleigh golf club is a beautiful 350 acre site in the Surrey Hills with a dull clubhouse.  At least it was until Design LSM transformed it.

The results are stunning leaving one visiting golfer to comment to his friend, “If Carlsberg did clubhouses…”.

As well as being creative, the team were collaborative and practical, focused on deadlines and budgets. I used their interiors and architect services. Both were excellent. We have worked together since (at Foxhills) and will do so again.”

Beats and Seams review: Angela Malik

Here’s a great review from Beats and Seams for Angela Malik’s Modern Asian Deli in Ealing. Our designers really enjoyed this project and it’s brilliant to see the deli full of life:

“Before I even walked into the deli – which by the way is located in a lovely corner of Ealing with a pretty view – I knew I trusted it. Do you ever get that when you walk past a restaurant or cafe and you immediately know not to go in? Well this deli’s brilliant white exterior and colourful logo certainly didn’t let that happen!

I was attracted to a clean, calm and colourful interior which was very welcoming, as were the staff. Their friendliness was genuinely out of this world.”

DesignLSM Brand Refresh

DesignLSM took the decision to refresh our brand as part of a drive to better promote our branding offer and strengthen our position in an increasingly international market.

Undertaken by our own branding team, the logotype is a simple bold sans serif which suits an embossed finish, which is a feature of DesignLSM’s new suite of stationery printed on GF Smith Mohawk and Colorplan papers. Our website has also been refreshed to accommodate all devices and provide a simple clear portfolio platform.

We are confident our rebrand will serve us well as we continue to grow and build upon our diverse client base.
