Over the years, the group has gained an international reputation based on its creative and experimental approach.

Why Not Associates has worked on projects ranging from exhibition design to postage stamps via advertising, publishing, television titles, commercials and corporate identity. Its clients include the Royal Academy of Arts, Malcolm McLaren, Royal Mail, Nike, Paul Smith, Virgin records and Channel 4.
