Hello, we are a team of five, based in the old tack room at Worton Park, just outside of Oxford.
We have many years experience working for the publishing industry, designing and producing educational materials.
Working as a close team gives us the range of skills and the flexibility needed to help our clients with their projects, from one-off products to complex series.
A design house to be reckoned with. Their professional approach, their flexibility and keen eye for detail and their ability to work as part of a team enabled Cambridge University Press to bring a six level course English Unlimited in on time and on budget. I would recommend Kamae Design to any organisation.

When I work with Kamae I know my products are with a team who are working with me.
I trust them to make judgement calls and they come back to me with intelligent queries. I feel they take the burden off of my shoulders as much as is possible. They are a great bunch of people with a good sense of humour which is invaluable.

I just wanted to let you all know that advance copies of the AcEnc SBs are sitting on my desk, and they're absolutely stunning! Despite insanely tight schedules, 5 time zones and an ocean between us, and two natural disasters
hitting the East Coast of the US, you've managed to pull off some amazing work. The team here in NY is delighted with the results.
I hope we're able to work together again soon!
Heather McCarron, Production Operations Supervisor, Cambridge University Press New York
This would not have been possible without such a strong, flexible, and dependable partner as Kamae! Many, many thanks to each of you. What a team!

Despite our tight deadlines and numerous changes, your team have always remained professional, friendly and adaptable and have produced books that our clients are very happy with. I have always felt well-informed about the progress of each project and the resulting designs are clear and colourful - exactly what was needed!
Suzette Pettit, Balberry Publishing
Everyone in-house is pretty excited about the whole Solutions course, as it's looking really smart.
Thanks so much for all your work, all the extra miles you go are much appreciated!!

Kamae are proactive and on the ball - they have always delivered each project stage on time and to a high standard. Their work is reliable both in terms of accuracy and creativity, despite time pressures and demanding schedules. Great work by a team that is a pleasure to work with.

Kamae are an exceptional design studio.
They are efficient and organised and entirely professional in everything they do. They respond quickly to changes in schedules and deadlines, usually all jobs coming in ahead of the required date. They go out of their way to communicate with clients and often predicting issues before they arise. The calm and friendly manner of all the team make them a real pleasure to work with.
Carolyn Tabor, Senior Designer, Pearson UK
Kamae picked up a project that was struggling to find its look. The difference they made to the overall design was fantastic, smoothing out all the bumps, fixing difficulties, and creating and accessible, stylish page look. Following on, their attention to detail was exceptional, with creative design matched to a real ability to think how to get the content across to the student.
Rachel Houghton, Publisher: Secondary English, Pearson UK
Kamae were brilliant from start to finish, combining creative flair with the ability to turn round numerous high-priority titles to extremely tight deadlines, and without ever sacrificing quality. They were a vital part of the 2010 GCSE English publishing team and we couldn't have published so much or so successfully without them.
Danny Cuttell, Publisher: Secondary English,
Kamae are always great to work with - always professional and a friendly bunch as well!
