GBH (Gregory Bonner Hale) is a London-based design and advertising agency founded in 1999 by Jason Gregory, Mark Bonner and Peter Hale. The studio’s proposition is that it ‘is not Design, it is not Digital and it is not Campaign, but it works in the space between these disciplines, fusing crafts in order to make work that cuts through’.[1]


In 2012, GBH was ranked 2nd in the UK Top 50 Creative Survey, an annual industry ranking based on three schemes: D&AD awards, Design Week awards and the Creative Review annual.[2] In 2011, GBH was named top design consultancy by the Pencil Rankings, which is based on both the D&AD and The One Club awards.[3]


GBH creates work in graphic design, identity, print, packaging, digital, retail, environment, advertising and online. It has worked with clients such as Eurostar,[4] Mama Shelter,[5] Miss Ko,[6] Yotel[7] and Royal Mail.[8]

The agency frequently collaborates with French designer Philippe Starck, including a 2005 project with Virgin for the Virgin Galactic company brand identity.[9] GBH's work with Puma's brand identity helped the agency to win a D&AD Yellow Pencil in 2004 and three more Yellow Pencils in 2011, as well as a 2012 Design Week award.[10][11]
