Boat is an optimistic creative studio from London, England. We turn simple, human ideas into brands, print, packaging, and digital.


We don’t believe in off-the-shelf solutions to problems, or recycling old ideas we’ve had for other clients. We start with a blank sheet of paper.

Whether your budget is £5k or £50k, we’ve made brand-identities, outdoor advertising campaigns, album artwork, websites and theatrical sets. We believe the cleverest ideas are the simplest. It might not make much sense on the surface but there’s an art to expressing things in the simplest way. We love big ideas that are painfully simple. We also care about little details. Though we live in a pretty skeptical world, we genuinely believe in the impossible. We started our studio when we quit our jobs, crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. We had no start-up capital, and were in the midst of a recession. We’ve made work we’re proud to put our name to. We launched a magazine that is on sale in three continents. And we approach everything we do with a love for big ideas and little details, a fondness for humanity, and the same spirit of cautious optimism that got us into the boat in the first place.

Boat Magazine was born out of our passion for storytelling, our obsession with traveling to new places, and our habit of buying way too many good-looking magazines.

Each issue focuses on a different complicated city and our goal is to help people create or update their ideas and images of that place. We go to cities that have big stories to tell and our team works day and night to find them, capture them, and get them into the pages of Boat Magazine.
