“DR.ME is run by Ryan Doyle and Mark Ed­wards. We formed the stu­dio when we re­turned from work­ing in New York for the il­lus­tra­tor Mike Perry in 2010, but we ac­tu­ally met on the first day of study­ing at Manch­ester School of Art.

We’ve worked with clients in­clud­ing Mick Jag­ger, The Tate, Ri­poste mag­a­zine, Sony, Levi’s and Warner Mu­sic. We’ve writ­ten, de­signed and pub­lished a book called Cut That Out: Con­tem­po­rary Col­lage in Graphic De­sign, and been in­vited to ex­hibit in New York, Ber­lin, Lon­don, Ham­burg, Dublin and Barcelona, along with run­ning work­shops around the world.

We’ve just com­pleted some de­sign work for Manch­ester In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val’s The Anvil, an event which com­mem­o­rated the Peter­loo Mas­sacre. We’ve also been cre­at­ing a se­ries of new 12-inch vinyl EP cov­ers for John Tal­abot and Axel Bo­man’s col­lab­o­ra­tive project Tal­abo­man, which has just been re­leased on the Glas­gow-based record la­bel Rubadub.

Be­cause we do a lot of work within the mu­sic in­dus­try, word-of­mouth jobs can end up hav­ing quite a cos­mopoli­tan feel. For ex­am­ple, a friend and col­lab­o­ra­tor in France has re­cently rec­om­mended us for a job brand­ing a record la­bel in Lon­don. Equally, we get a lot of work through art di­rec­tors see­ing our work on In­sta­gram. Yet the core of where we get our work from is hus­tle. And if we have a bit of spare time be­tween big­ger projects we tend to use that op­por­tu­nity to con­cen­trate on mak­ing a stu­dio project.”
