A growing business

After 6 months in Dover Street we needed more space and took a bigger rented office on Russell Square. We stayed there until 2005 when we bought our first office in the “up and coming” trendy area of Clerkenwell. 

Still our London office today, the building was constructed in 1855-1865 as a print work on the site of a paupers’ graveyard. The construction of this area was in conjunction with the building of the Metropolitan Railway, which was the start of the London Underground system.


A quick fact about our London office...

The building was constructed for James Figgins, the son of Vincent Figgins who popularised the Modern Serif typefaces, and today we occupy the fourth floor.

Originally for the accounts department you can still see the original safe built into the wall, together with an iron door to secure the floor!
