April is a fresh, innovative design company operating at the heart of London’s vibrant design scene. Art directors Joana Niemeyer and Lisa Sjukur met in 2004 whilst working at Thomas Manss & Company design studio.

We pride ourselves on our thorough research processes and our ability to listen carefully to clients’ requirements, anticipating their needs and working closely alongside them to reach the desired result. April’s client list currently includes the writer Alain de Botton, The School of Life, The Equality Trust, Art Consultant Esteem and Prestel Publishing, among others.

Our work covers all areas of design: books, reports, posters, corporate identities, information graphics, signage and webite design.

April creates bespoke graphic solutions, seeking an imaginative and sensitive response to each individual brief. Clients of all sizes have commented that April are easy to work with, and that we produce striking and accomplished results. We oversee projects from the naming of buildings or a new structural engineering practice all the way through to implementing signage and managing company websites.
