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 twelve months he has worked with Scala Arts & Heritage designing a fascinating history of Gunnersbury Park in West London; completed a new cookbook on Healthy Lebanese food by Monah Hamadeh, for Robinson in the UK; and for Historic England, produced a lavishly illustrated book on Photographing Historic Buildings by Steve Cole.

Andrew now lives in a Regency dolls’ house in the old town of Hastings. In the last century the house was home to one of the towns beach photographers, and used to contain his studio and troop of monkeys!
