Hold is the collaboration of Steve Hyland, Anthony Oram and Stuart Langridge. Three friends with a shared history who decided to pool their various talents and experience to form a very singular design agency.
Hold work within a variety of industry sectors throughout the UK and the South East emanating from Brighton, East Sussex. Hold has experience designing for; Animal Conservation, Arts, Charity, Construction, Entertainment, Events, Environmental Campaigns, Fashion, Healthcare, Music, Publishing and Retail. Our disciplines include branding and corporate identity, illustration, art and photography direction, packaging, typography, print management, colour management, magazine and catalogue design, corporate literature and website design and development. Among our clients are such companies as; ATC Management, BMG, Dogs Trust, E-Day, HarperCollins Publishers, Snow+Rock, Sony Music and Oxford University’s WildCRU.
With an obsession for quality design, Steve has a knack of producing fantastic logo’s and typography as well as general all-round design. Before setting up Hold Steve worked as in-house senior designer at Sony Music, and previous to that at HarperCollins Publishers. More recently Steve could be found at digital design agency, Suburb. Early mornings aren’t his game, but when everyone else is cream crackered, he’s the last man standing.
Anthony's strength is in his commanding design perception. Always seeing the bigger picture and able to nail the appropriate flavour to any brief. With a history of running his own design agencies in London, Ant has finally moved down to Brighton having wanted to do so for many years. Setting up Hold was only a matter of time.
Having managed a team of photographers, designers and copywriters producing retail catalogues and websites, he is able to keep a cool head and deliver the goods on time. Travelling the globe on shoots and driving miles to work, Stuart has finally outgrown his previous long-term employment and fulfilled a lifelong dream of working for this, his own company. And cycling to work!
