AIME, our creative studio, is at
the heart of what we do, and tells authentic
stories through every guest touch point.
Who we are
We are 30 strong studio of interior and graphic designers that have a demonstrated history designing hospitality spaces, creating environments that flourish functionally and inspire creativity.
With decades of experience in hospitality design, we are well versed in understanding the practical requirements of commercial spaces, as well as putting the experience of our guests at the front of our minds.
Our design process is rooted in research of our
surroundings, and the history of our buildings which allow us to
create unique experiences showcasing the brands we work with.
We study the brief and learn about our building, our brand and our neighbours. The most important part of our creative process is discovering a rationale for the decisions we will make.
We generate ideas. We spend time finding threads to create a solid and legitimate narrative to support our designs. Every decision has purpose and links back to our core concept pillars.
We sample, we procure, we build. This is where our vision becomes three dimensional and our identities becomes established brands with depth and a sense of purpose.
We don’t cookie cut. We get better every time and we’re not afraid to be critical of our previous work. With every project we improve our brands, our spaces and our process.

Our approach to graphic design is grounded in reason and purpose. We pride ourselves in being visual story tellers which narrate our brands in a way that lead to smarter interactions with guests. We love being in the detail and treating every consumer touchpoint as discovery moments that enhances experiences. We touch all aspects of graphic design from collateral, signage and wayfinding and stand out brand identities.
We create brands with meaning. Every restaurant, hotel, bar and all public space is treated uniquely with identities that stand out, and stand the test of time. Our brands are designed to become part of people’s everyday lives, by engaging with customers.
With our years of experience we have created a network of the best in class collaborators, makers and doers. These suppliers and partners are trusted to deliver the vision and quality expected, so our brands and our spaces stand out.

The Hoxton is a series of open house hotels, rooted in culture and community, located in cities across the UK, Europe and North America. We’ve designed interiors and identities for every one of The Hoxton Hotels, and the creative narrative is always is a reflection of the building it’s housed in, and also the neighbourhood, inspired by the diversity and originality of the streets and the people that surround them.
Over the last six years we’ve undertaken extensive refurbishment of the Glorious Playground, reinventing the interiors and resetting the hotel’s identity. A charming country estate, a home from home – Gleneagles is a luxury hotel in the heart of the Scottish countryside. The design is rooted in history, and always nods respectfully to the building’s deep heritage.
Since the comfy sofas of The Hoxton Hotel have been the unofficial workspace of choice since 2006, we were asked to create a workspace that reflected the core values and the atmosphere of The Hoxton Hotel. Influenced by the Mad Men era of the 1960s, Working From_ is designed with sophistication and comfort in mind – a backdrop of industrial steel and reeded glazing but layered with authentic mid-century furnishings.
