About Us

Rufus Turnbull, Founding Director

Rufus is a Founding Director of Studio X, and provides the creative leadership behind our projects, with responsibility for all of Studio X’s strategic direction and design output.

There is not much he hasn’t been asked to create in a career spanning two decades, and divided equally between Europe and Asia, but a common thread that runs through all of his projects is a commitment to making great experiences that enhance people’s lives and to improving the performance of his client’s businesses.

Along with his experience of creating new shopping experiences, he has also designed aircraft interiors, challenged the way the airport journey works, created one of a kind cinemas, master-planned indoor street food markets and developed new concepts for retail banks.

His clients have included K11, Estee Lauder, British Airways, Fred Perry, Diageo, Swire Properties, Sony, and Ikea.
