Above and Beyond was founded in 2011 by Claudia Pape. A Graphic Designer by trade, Claudia graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Masters Degree in Communication Design in 1999. Since then she worked both in big agencies & boutique studios for diverse clients ranging from 5 star hotels, (Claridge’s, Raffles…) cultural institutions (Arts Council and Crafts Council…) and fashion houses (Mulberry, Victoria Beckham…).
Now her focus is on concept driven homeware products. Above & Beyond were selected as finalists of the Confessions of A Design Geek bursary 2015. Southbank Centre Shops were on the selection panel and provided mentoring for all of the finalists.
