Graphic design consultancy Kerr & Noble is to close, with founders Frith Kerr and Amelia Noble parting to pursue separate projects.
The four-strong studio, founded 11 years ago, had worked on projects for Channel 4 and the Natural History Museum among other clients.
Kerr and Noble are leaving to set up their own consultancies, and it is believed the two other full-time staff are also setting up on their own.
Noble says, ‘Our decision to close the studio and continue separately is completely amicable – we’re the best of friends, and fortunately this has nothing to do with the current credit crunch climate. We’re not closing sadly, but solvent and successful.’
Noble adds that she will be working under her own name as of January.
Kerr will set up Studio Frith at the end of January, and says she already has work in place.
She adds, ‘We have decided to follow our own directions while Kerr & Noble is at the top of its game and a clean break can be achieved.’
