Passport is an independent Leeds based brand identity and print design studio founded in 2012 by Jonathan Finch and Rosalind Stoughton. The studio’s approach is informed by international destinations and design culture, and looks to create thoughtful and effective visual identities that strike a balance between classic and contemporary aesthetics, and crafted and unconventional material choices and print processes. This philosophy is reflected in a revised brand identity treatment, designed to coincide with the studio’s second anniversary, that included new business cards, stationery set and responsive website.
