M is for Magpie
An A-Z of Magpie Studio
The three founding partners on their first three years as a studio, letter by letter.
Magpie was founded in 2008 by David Azurdia, Ben Christie and Jamie Ellul with a clear intention of producing beautifully crafted, ideas-driven design.
The three directors met whilst studying at Somerset College of Arts in the late 90s. After graduating, they migrated to London and spent 10 years honing their skills, independently, at some of London’s top branding agencies, in both a full time and freelance capacity.
The studio has now grown to seven full time staff and a host of collaborators, working in a diverse range of media with a diverse range of clients including BAFTA, The British Heart Foundation, Channel 4, D&AD, Houses of Parliament, Land Securities, Robert Horne Paper, Royal Mail and University of the Arts.
