Banyan Design

Banyan is a small creative design consultancy based near Stroud in Gloucestershire. They come up with beautiful, cost-effective solutions to design problems… which in layman’s terms means that they design lovely things relatively cheaply!

Peter Bishop set Banyan up several years ago with the aim of being ethical and, as he puts it, ‘doing nice work for nice people’. They do all sorts of stuff: fancy brochures and leaflets, websites, detailed reports, books, magazines, visual identities, and so on… all done with integrity and as far as possible contributing to a greener, fairer and better world.

They’ve worked with all sorts of people over the years… some you may even have heard of!

Banyan often get together with like-minded creative people – writers, illustrators, and photographers, for example, or slightly geeky people who write website code and vaguely scary ones who know everything there is to know about marketing. Without wasting too much time on convoluted explanations, the name Banyan also relates to this idea of synergy and collaborative networks.

Peter has developed a reputation as a genial chap who is a bit clever when it comes to designing. Banyan are a reflection of those things – unfailingly reliable and creative and definitely pleasant to work with.

If any of this strikes a chord with you, why not get in touch!
