Suisse is a multi disciplined agency situated in the very vibrant Merchant City area of Glasgow’s city centre. There are only two of us. We are small and we like it that way. We get to touch and manage the work. We’ve both been around a while and have seen most things.
Some 50 years joint experience between us. We have won a fair few awards over the years and we are delighted to have the admiration of both peers and clients. Safe to say, we love the industry. We love the challenges. We love the work.
What our clients say
“We were delighted with Suisse’s approach to the design of the interpretation for the exhibits within our Linthouse Building – an iconic Victorian engine shed. A design which was modern yet paying homage to its industrial home was essential. Suisse took influence from the building to create a colour palette and design elements which interact perfectly with the building and its awe-inspiring scale.
As a curator, good design is incredibly important to me, and Suisse excelled with a design which helps the museum tell its story. The fact that it won the Scottish Design Award Grand Prix says it all”.
Linda Ross, Senior Curator, Scottish Maritime Museum, Irvine
“I’ve worked with Paul and Suisse on both sides of the pond going on 11 years now. Here’s my experience: Super collaborative. A thinking design team. Incredibly detailed and conscientious about the work they are doing, and its purpose. And damn witty. The award-lined walls of their Glasgow office loft speaks of the respect their peers have for Paul and Lyn as one of the Industry’s most consistently talented concept and visual teams. They are good people.
Yeah… we’re pretty fond of Suisse”.
Bill Kamper, Simplified Solutions, Chicago, Illinois, USA
“We have worked with Suisse and collaborated on many projects. They hit the design nail on the head every time. Their attention to detail and client communication is spot on, every step of the way. Finally a design firm that really gets it”.
Sandy Carson, Photographer, Austin Texas
“We have worked with Suisse on Vintage Glasgow and found them to be creative, hard working, able to stick to budgets and importantly fun to work with… We Recommend”.
Wayne Hemingway MBE, Hemingway Design, London

Donald McGhie, Founding Partner, situ8, Chicago
“Paul Gray is Paul Great”.

A bit of a buzz
“With an infectious energy for invention, as well as the nitty gritty detail of the task in-hand, there is a real collaboration and purposeful investigation of ‘possibilities’ when working with Suisse.
The Suisse contribution has been invaluable and diverse. Our students, collectively and individually, have benefitted from the experience, knowledge and commitment that Suisse has been able to bring to the classroom. Most recently working on the design and content of teaching materials and student briefs with the aim of both inspiring and challenging our students so that they may better explore and understand real world processes, create effective solutions and recognise their own potential for creative invention.
Final outcome? Productive and Inventive solutions that engage enhance and empower.
Many thanks for the buzz…”
Michael Kuzmak, Photography Lecturer, Glasgow
“Working with Paul was one of the best and most creative experiences I have had professionally. Paul’s design sense makes what would be ordinary into the extraordinary, which in turn made me create stronger and better images. I look forward to working with him again, anytime, anywhere! And, his wicked wit is always deeply admired and appreciated”!!!
