Founded in 2001 by Andrew Barron, thextension are a graphic design consultancy specialising in all aspects of book design and production.

Andrew began his professional career with the Conran Design Group in the 1970s, working in the, then new, world of corporate design. Periods in publishing and the arts followed, along with a committment to design education at Maidstone (The Kent Institute).

In the 1990s, with partner Collis Clements, he founded the successful Cloth Hall Studio, and after ten years – when the partnership dissolved, he formed his own design studio to concentrate on publishing.

Today, the list of clients and projects reflects his diverse background and interests.

Over the last year he has worked with Historic England designing a fascinating history of the Liverpool music scene (Liverpool’s Musical Landscape); completed a ravishing new book on Persian Cookery (From a Persian Kitchen) by Atoosa Sepehr, for Robinson; and for Two Roads, produced a glamorous guide to Islamic Gardens (Paradise Gardens) by Monty Don and Derry Moore, to accompany the television series of the same name.

Andrew now lives in a Regency dolls’ house in Hastings Old Town. In the last century the house was home to one of the towns seaside photographers, and contained his studio and pet monkeys, often used in his pictures.
