About us

Design for print & digital

Founded by Kevin Lunn and Richard Young in 2013 and currently based in London, 1810 is a privately owned design-led creative studio.

Prior to co-founding 1810, Lancashire lad Kevin spent much of his time working for gigantic corporations in diverse industries including film & television, oil and gas, and telecommunications. As a fully qualified accountant and with a background in graphic communication, the interpretation and presentation of information is Kevin’s stock in trade.

Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Richard is an experienced agency design-lead and Creative Director. He has worked on award-winning digital, integrated, and offline campaigns for 20 years. Richard is fortunate to have spent over half of his career working for world-renowned clients in the charity sector including National Trust, Oxfam, Cancer Research UK, Friends of the Earth, and Amnesty International.

We care about what we do and who we do it for – and we like variety in what we do. We work with a wide range of clients – from global leaders in business, the charity sector and medical research, to small independent retailers and academic institutions.
