I’m Annina Diston: a creative director and designer with over 20 years’ brand-building experience.

I pride myself on producing striking, detail-led design for clients ranging from household names like Universal Music and Playstation to start-ups and social enterprises.

Although most of my work involves creating and reinventing brand identities, I’m also an accomplished creative director, illustrator, occasional painter and a miniature-maker. I offer a range of services from establishing your brand’s visual voice with logo and asset design to overall creative direction for media productions – music videos, short promotional films and more.

I started my career at an advertising agency in my native Switzerland, then rose through the ranks to become Head of Creative at a leading Brighton design agency. I went freelance in 2011 to allow me to be more flexible around my family and I now work for a range of UK and international clients from my studio just outside York.

When I’m not at my Mac, you’ll find me stripping wallpaper, volunteering at our local community shop and obsessing over vintage typography.

I love the potential of a blank page and believe that anything is possible with a good coffee in hand.
