Hello, we’re Brother. We’re a graphic design agency based in London and Bath, specialising in branding, web design and advertising. The world’s not short of brand consultancies, so why are we different?

Well, the name’s a clue. Brother is led by designers Piers and Dominic Rutterford. As well as a surname and countless strands of DNA, we share a belief that good design shows on the bottom line. That makes it a serious business activity – and we treat it that way.

We immerse ourselves in our clients’ brands. We get to know their hopes, their fears – and their competitors. Then we share our ideas as simply as we can, without marketing jargon and pseudo-science. Rather than imposing a fixed process on clients, we talk to them in their own language and involve them in the insight and design journey.

It’s a collaborative, straight-talking approach that clearly works. We’ve a portfolio of long-term clients of almost every size in almost every sector. Today Brother is a kindred creative spirit to major charities as well as leading businesses in healthcare, finance, education and the arts.

Not that we haven’t space for one more. Whether you’re a household name, a start-up, or anywhere in between, discover what openness, commitment and brotherly love can do for your brand.


You could say Piers started in the more traditional environment of graphic design agencies but joining advertising agency Other* Creative as Associate Director and Head of Design saw a honing of his skills. Alongside through-the-line advertising for commercial clients, Piers also started working with an impressive array of charity sector clients (including Amnesty and YHA) creating DM pieces, fundraising and event materials.

After four years he branched out on his own working with clients from the public and charity sector – including NHS, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Family Lives, Royal Society of Medicine, Sightsavers, Asthma UK and The Health Foundation – and from May 2010 Piers joined forces with Dominic to form Brother.


Telecommunications to wine, insurance to healthcare; television to museums; hats to books, sport to cinema – Dominic has worked on some pretty diverse projects over his 25 year career.

Specialising in brand identity, implementation, strategy and development in both print and web design he has been lucky enough to have worked in London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Dublin and New Zealand for both large branding agencies and boutique graphic design agencies.

In 2010, after a 7-year stint in New Zealand, he settled back in the UK and joined forces with Piers to form Brother.
