We work and live by a few beliefs that shape our purpose and well-being

It’s personal

It has to be…we’re talking about you or your company’s identity and outward expression to the world. Marshall Light Studio enjoys getting to know our clients. Firstly, because we genuinely like people; secondly, our work needs to reflect your vision, values and personality. So yes, it’s personal for you, and for us too.


Be authentic

Believe in what you do and be true to your brand values. In most cases you only get one chance for that first impression – make an impact and offer something genuine. Authenticity is the key to connecting with your audiences and forming a loyal, long-lasting relationship.


Question everything

We’re a curious studio, finding inspiration in peculiar places – you never know where the answer might be found. That’s why every project, large or small, involves a thinking stage. We research the market landscape and immerse ourselves in your brief. Questioning everything forms the foundation of our creative solution.

Marshall Light Studio is a partnership between Frances Marshall and Sophie Light
