Meet Studio 74’s Creative Design Team

We are a husband and wife Graphic Designer Team – Gary Cotton and Sam Dabbs-Cotton. After working for a number of different Advertising / Design Agencies, we decided to combine our skills and go it alone! Hence, Studio 74 Creative Design Agency was established over eight years ago now in Somerset, located between Bath and Bristol, in the South West of England. We have over 30-years graphic design experience between us and pride ourselves on also making sure that good customer service is always high on our agenda.

Sam and I have been working together in the design field for fifteen years. During this time we have found that our creative expertise complements each other well, enabling us to provide a creative design service to our clients across multiple disciplines.

Although we are both ‘all-round’ graphic designers, over the years we have each carved out a niche for ourselves within the company. My focus is on logo design, as I enjoy the challenge of developing brand identities that encapsulate the essence of a company, and designing websites built on the WordPress Content Management System. When it comes to websites, I am passionate about producing clean, functional designs that translate well across the build stage to produce effective, dynamic websites.

Within Studio 74, my design specialty is in creating design work for print. This field can cover a vast array of design projects, offering me the day-to-day creative variety that I love about the graphic design industry.

The creative design projects I get involved with can range from designing small-scale projects like flyers, leaflets, posters and corporate stationery, to much larger pieces like exhibition graphics. I also specialise in brochure and magazine layout, and have a number of regular magazines that I design. I love this area of my job as it encompasses many roles within the one project and there’s always a sense of achievement when the final artwork is uploaded to the printers. Time to sit back and await the arrival of the finished project!
