how did I wind up
running a design studio?
vogue made me do it.
Flicking through the pages of the September issue, I wasn’t swooning over handbags I couldn’t afford or reading up on the latest trends. No, I was stroking the double page spreads and admiring the fancy editorial typography. I wasn’t thinking ‘I want to buy this’ or ‘I want to buy that’, I was thinking ‘I want to design this bad boy’!
Established in 2008, Becky Lord Design is a product of my passion for beautiful design, branding, paper and print.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a Designer. I love working letterforms till they’re a perfect fit, and I live for those moments when I figure out a fancy bit of web code. Ask me about patterns, print finishes and my pantone swatches and I’ll be in my element.
But after more than a decade in business, I get the biggest kick out of seeing my clients thrive. Their passion pushes me creatively and constantly inspires me to do my best work. Knowing I’ve helped them achieve their goals and played a part in their business journey is just dreamy.
I’ve built Becky Lord Design on a foundation of quality, collaboration, kindness and trust.
Those aren’t just carefully chosen words designed to sound good on my about page,
that’s genuinely how I do things round here.

A little more about me
I’m a city girl at heart – I like the hustle and bustle – but I’m equally happy skipping through bluebells in the woods. I spent the first 20 years of my life living in a teeny, tiny Lincolnshire village before moving to Sheffield in 2008 and starting my business. We live a little way out of town now, close to the beautiful Peak District, giving us the best of both worlds.
When I’m not at my desk, I’m usually hanging out with my husband, Sam. I love a very Instagram-worthy day. Trust me, those ‘influencers’ are on to something! There’s nothing nicer than grabbing a flat white on a sunny day, strolling round the shops in a floaty dress and treating myself to fresh flowers.
I also love reading, running, eating Thai food, discovering new places, dressing up, wearing lipstick and drinking espresso martinis.
I’m passionate about singing badly, dancing like Kate Bush and shouting ‘your dog is cute’ whenever a dogwalker walks by with their pooch.
I enjoy using the pink heart emoji, (killing) house plants, cooking for family and eating cheese Doritos.
Do we sound like a good fit?
