About

Founded in 2014 by Laline Sudlow and Alice Best.

At Bolter Design we use critical thinking, imagination and commercial understanding to energise the relationship between you, your product and your customer.

This is about more than just aesthetics. We are designers with contrasting backgrounds and this means we can look holistically at your brand’s expression and intervene to maximum effect.

How we are different

Together Alice and Lal have brought 2 and 3 dimensional design skills all under one roof supported by a core talented team within the studio.

Not your usual agency model: This is complimented with a variety of freelancers, consultants, co-creators and copywriters to build a bespoke strategy for your project.

This ensures the team is tailored to allows each client to have the emphasis and budget allocated to the most important aspects for their particular proposal.

Who

Our clients range from start-ups to established businesses, from restaurants to beauty brands. 

We believe collaboration is the key to success and work side by side with our clients to build stronger foundations that bring about commercial change.

Laline Sudlow

Design and execution are Lal’s game – she knows everything there is to know about print production. Her typographic talents are so impressive she’s a member of the ISTD* and has had her work published in a book. She’s an ideas person, an operator and a magician when it comes to taking what’s in our heads and putting it on paper!

*International Society of Typographic Designers

Alice Best

Alice is a thinker. Her design solutions are meticulously considered. She leaves no stone unturned when it comes to research and problem solving and, thanks to her background in architecture, she’s also 100% au fait with working in 2 and 3 dimensions, at any scale. And she’s worked as far afield as China, so it's fair to say she has some stellar experience to draw upon.
