Howard Sullivan

Howard is passionate about the interweaving of fine art, trends, fashion, communication and interiors, and the unique experiences that can be created through their cross-pollination. Howard is the co-founder and Creative Director of YourStudio, a practice with studios in London and Melbourne specialising in creating spaces that engage the mind and senses. They work with emerging artists, new technologies and material-makers to bring exciting new concepts to life.

Howard designed furniture and environments, working on a number of museum and exhibition projects with companies including Casson Mann and Futurelab. Projects included Are You Unique and The Garden at Science Museum.

Howard studied MA Architecture and Interiors at London’s Royal College of Art, going on to lead the refurbishment of the Regency Galleries with Piers Gough at CZWG Architects and the Soane exhibition at the Royal Academy. He worked for over a decade in Europe, Asia, America and Australia on projects ranging from retail and hotel environments to new airline lounges.

In 2008, Howard formed YourStudio with his business partner Tom. YourStudio was founded with a passion to create inspiring and insightful work that enhances people’s lives. The interplay of work, rest and play has earned them projects from cutting-edge retail experiences like Topshop Splash! (a VR and physical waterslide in the Oxford St store) to the development of restaurant concepts such as Sourced Market in London’s Barbican.
