Beards

Beards are almost synonymous with quality design. Look at just how many famous designers we found sporting 'face fungus' after 35 minutes of intensive searching.

Almost all of us love a good beard (Ashleigh you may want to look away now) so we thought we would conduct a census capturing the current state of beards in the studio. We've helpfully categorised them according to style, ambition and friction. Here are our findings.

    Go here:

    and either print it on your own ink-jet or right click and save it for posterity. You can then print it on someone elses ink-jet!
