“We were delighted to have an opportunity to partner with LSAD and work with local talent to design and create our Troy Studios Brand identity for the studios. It was through discussions with James Greenslade and Eamon Spelman of LSAD that the idea was developed to work with their design students. We are grateful to local design company Piquant Media, who came on board to project manage this for us and it is very fitting as Piquant are design past pupils of LSAD itself too”.
