Max Broadbent is an independent graphic designer based in Sheffield, UK. Specialising in the creation of brand identity, print and website design for clients spanning engineering, manufacturing, medical and charity sectors.

Our extended team

Max Broadbent is joined by a network of designers, illustrators, developers and film makers. Depending on that job at hand, I sometimes call in expertise from outside the studio. I have a go to group of local contractors who I reach out to as needed. I'm always looking to work with new people, so if you’re interested in working with me, let me know.

Process

Each job is different, but I typically approach things by scoping out the job, understanding the needs of a client and discussing various options of moving forward. A brief is then established and agreed. I would often then present various ideas which are then refined and further developed in a collaborative way with the client, until a final design is realised.

Approach

I look to bring simplicity to the fore in my approach, to enable clients to communicate clearly and beautifully in a visually chaotic world. Utilising strong typography, graphical elements, photography and illustration to establish brands, charities and businesses— using design as a means to communicate your story.
