create and design visually engaging brand identities
its the people that make us.
There is nothing more powerful than a passion for doing what you love and about making people happy. We are based in London Hammersmith, our team are a talented bunch of creatives who all have a minimum of 20 years experience under their belt and have stayed for the long haul because they are valued. Designers who have left still return and talk about the good times they shared with us, life is good at Madeyoulook. We give fantastic service to our clients as we own the business we run, which means we care. Our designs are truthful, honest and authentic, good design speaks for itself, it demands attention and it communicates visually with a directiveness that one can instantly appreciate.
Brenda Moss – Managing Director
I started out over 30 years ago working with our founder, the late great John Brimacombe, one of the first packaging design agencies in London.
He taught me that successful design was born out of great inspirational ideas that engage with the consumer and interact with their mind. Pictures speak louder than words and are the most universally understood language.
This is and has always been the USP of the business to create simple compelling new brand identities with true defined focus that visually communicate their USP to their audience and their markets. I now own the business with Nicky Gregg our creative director.
Nicky Gregg – Creative Director
My passion for packaging was ignited when I joined Madeyoulook 21 years ago. Back then we worked on drawing boards with magic markers, it was real art and I can even remember my first mac!
Madeyoulook inspired me to develop my design skills and flourish with new ideas that would be revolutionary when executed using new media. This has enhanced the way we work and design. I love the challenge of solving complex design briefs for new products, leading and working alongside a sensational team of creatives that can visualise the ideas and develop them to market.

our services include:
Visual brand strategy
Branded packaging design
Digital artwork creation
Brand support & implementation
Research stimulus & mood boards

our work life balance makes for a happy team
We believe our team of creatives are the best in the business, all highly experienced, with a talent like no other as well as being really nice people.
We reward them with a modern ’smart working’ environment that fits in with our modern digital age. It makes us more productive, giving us more time to be creative plus still make those tight deadlines and even tighter budgets.
We value our team as people who work to live rather than live to work. By offering a flexible work space we can be highly responsive, meet any deadline and work remotely when required.
1976 was a very good year
Not only was 1976 the hottest record breaking summer but the year our company was born. The world was a different place back then. You could buy a loaf for 19p, Frozen meals were all the rage and we ate Vesta Curry and Dream Topping. Mmmm. Computers were still in the future. but this was the year Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple in the US, little did we know how much it would change all our lives.
Brand design for packaging was our business back then and still is. A pack can communicate an advertising message as powerfully as any other media and it has the advantage of always being at the point of purchase.
As packaging evolves we are always looking at what the future will be.
