About Us

Smith & Lewarne is a collaborative graphic design and illustration practice based in the South West of the UK with studios in Bristol and Plymouth.

The practice was founded by Jono Lewarne (City Edition Studio) and Stephen Smith (Neasden Control Centre). Jono Lewarne established City Edition Studio as graphic design and typography practice. Stephen Smith, who works under the name of Neasden Control Centre, is an illustrator and graphic artist.

We began working together informally a number of years ago and decided to formalise our collaboration in 2018. We work across our studios in Bristol and Plymouth, frequently together in one place during intense phases of projects.

Services We Offer

We offer a wide range of services, including but not limited to;

Branding and identities
Book and publication design
Web design and development
Wordpress and Shopify theme development

We regularly project manage our installations and we're comfortable managing the fine details, from printed matter to production specifications for the three-dimensional objects that make up our installations.

We have close ties with several collaborators who we work with to realise our projects, including printers, production teams, photographers. We love working as part of an interdisciplinary team alongside other dedicated professionals.

Community engagement and workshops are also something that we enjoy organising as part of our work, having done so in the UK and abroad.
