Reassessing how he wanted to approach his professional and family time, Jamie Ellul launched Supple Studio with a focus on what he calls “work-love balance”. Having previously set up and directed Magpie Studio in London for five years, he felt it was time for a change – escaping the competitive cycle of award-chasing and expensive inner-city life. Relocating to Bath, Supple was established in 2013, and has since added a team member for each new year. With reduced outgoings alleviating the pressure to take on bread-and-butter jobs, Supple’s small and agile team have been able to take on projects they care about. He tells us about a portfolio that ranges from stamp design for the Royal Mail, to an identity for a local community initiative, and what he enjoys about working in Bath.
