Paul Izzard

Design Director

Paul Izzard has led Izzard Design for over 20 years. Paul believes spaces should be as easy and comfortable to be in as they are to look at. "You want to enjoy your time out,” he says. “You’re not going out to a restaurant because you’re hungry. If you were just hungry you would stay in and make a cheese sandwich."

In 2016, Izzard Design's clients took out 7 of the Metro Top 50 Restaurants, including Cassia which was the supreme winner of Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year. Izzard Design's clients are frequently recognised by The Denizen, Viva, Canvas, The Urban List, EatHereNow and more.
