About us

Superfried is the award winning design studio of Mark Richardson, specialising in brand identity and typography. Founded in a London bedroom in 2007, Superfried is now located in the centre of Manchester.

I ask questions and listen, to deliver effective design solutions for international and domestic clients. When required, I collaborate with trusted experts to surpass the expectations of start-ups through to global brands across all sectors.

A lifelong curiosity and obsession to make things better has led me along an unconventional, self-taught path. This drive has never diminished resulting in an eclectic output of work recognised, awarded and featured globally both in print and online.
