Talking Horse comes from the head, hands and heart of Nicholas Hart.
Portrait of Nicholas Hart


I’m a freelance designer and front end developer, based in London. I specialise in creating brand identities, mostly (but by no means exclusively) for people doing great things in the arts.

Whether you're a startup in the market for a website that looks great and performs even better, an artisanal cheesemaker in need of a logo that shows you're the top fromage, or a production company needing a visually commanding pitch deck, get in touch. I have all the tools needed to help you tell your story, in print and online.

I used to moonlight as an actor for a living. Notable theatre credits included Hand To God (Vaudeville Theatre), Alice's Adventures Underground (The Vaults) and War Horse (National Theatre, West End), in which I puppeteered the head of Joey - hence the name.

Talking Horse used to be a two-man pony; copywriter-extraordinaire Andrew London, also a former horse, has since joined Velocity. Here's something he wrote for them that's one of our core principles: If content doesn't cost you anything, it isn't worth anything.
