Middlecott Design is a new, Detroit-based, multidisciplinary design firm working in transportation and product design, branding, and graphics. Founded by Brook and Judith Banham in San Francsico in 2008, Middlecott Design moved to Detroit in 2012 as the Motor City’s newest premier-design studio.
Middlecott offers complete industrial, graphic, and branding design services from story and concept to prototype production. We design innovative solutions for transport and consumer product industries, as well as graphics for web, UI, print and branding.
Middlecott benefits from its internationally experienced founders. Both Brook (UK) and Judith (Austria) have experience working in European and American markets, making domestic brands more competitive internationally through an innovative design approach and their combined experience and knowledge.
The Middlecott team consists of a tight-knit group of highly trained professionals from across the creative board. Their small size allows them to be on-call, more efficient, and more flexible than large, in-house OEM teams, giving them the ability to create class-leading design in half the time.
As a newly established design company in Detroit, Middlecott wishes to break into the OEM market. Vehicles are their passion; in addition to complete vehicle-concept development and design, they plan to create customer needs-based accessories and brand extensions that add value to vehicles—products that over-extended OEM design studios do not have the resources to create.
Being a part of Detroit differentiates Middlecott from outside design consultancies, and allows them to foster a closer relationship with their clients. Unprecedented access and open communications are the bedrock of Middlecott services.
