Studio Parris Wakefield
Studio Parris Wakefield was originally founded on the long collaboration between Howard Wakefield and Peter Saville in 2002. The Studio was previously known as Saville Parris Wakefield. The name change in 2009 reflects the transition over several years of Peter Saville’s move to his own projects. The Studio continues to be led by Howard Wakefield, retaining the high standards, dedication and enthusiasm for design that has become synonymous with Howard’s work over the past 15 years.
