Hambly & Woolley is an 9-person graphic design studio that has been quietly going about its business for more than 30 years. Our clients range from the education, health and not-for-profit sectors to interior and architectural design, retail, publishing and professional services. We make it our business to understand yours—and we love a challenge.  For each project, we assemble a team of disparate thinkers to mine as many points of view as possible and achieve our goal: simple, hardworking design with clarity of purpose. 

We revel in our craft and frankly shrink from boasting about ourselves. While it makes us happy that we’ve consistently won design awards, it makes us happier when our clients meet their objectives and ask us to do more—or refer us enthusiastically. Many of our clients have been with us for years, even decades; we do our best work when we are your strategic partner. We’re proud that our work is both useful, and important. Our client roster is built entirely on referrals. 

Today, the firm is owned by partners Gord Woolley, Dominic Ayre and Andrew Ryther. 

Our visual identity since our founding in 1990, the pig and sheep remain as a tribute to the firm’s two original founding partners—Bob Hambly and Barb Woolley.
