One & A Half Studio

One & A Half Studio is a creative practice founded by Oliver Gabe and Ashley Kirby. The practice revolves around a process-led and concept-driven methodology. Our aim is to communicate a message through simple, playful responses. We work with printed matter, visual identities, art direction, motion work, spatial design, web design and dark magic.

We are the previous world record holders for the World’s Largest Enlarged Letter set at 24,576 point, on the 3rd March 2015 at Bower Ashton Campus, Bristol. Fraser Muggeridge previously held this record set at 12,288 point at Camberwell College of Art, London on 7th March 2014 and then the participants of Typography Summer School in Melbourne, Australia on 9th February 2015 set at 12,994 point. The record has been broken three times and is currently held by George Wood & Stephen Dalley at 30,720pt.

We also engage in self-initiated work and collaborations of all kinds. Please get in touch if you would like to work with us or just go for a pint.
