Seth Barham Design
Minimal and effective design, inspired by culture.


I don’t like to stay in one place for long. My travels continue to be an inspiration in my work and other creative projects.



Minimalism is basically adopting the mantra "less is more" as a lifestyle choice. I own only the things I need, which makes frequent travel a hell of a lot easier. This philosophy also influences my day-to-day activities by helping to streamline my workflow, allowing me to pursue experiences over material consumption, and being more mindful of my general activities. It's also easy to see that this is a major factor in how I approach design, as I believe that communicating a message with as little fluff as possible is incredibly effective. We are constantly battling information overload as brands compete for our attention online. Simple yet striking designs stand out in this cluttered environment and make a lasting impression on your potential clients. The same guiding principle of minimalism that I follow in my daily life can be used to transform your brand by stripping away the excess and presenting a clear, confident message that has staying power.

Footloose Fabric

Sometimes I just get an idea and want to run with it. These designs are usually inspired by my travels and I make them accessible to everyone through my T-shirt shop on Redbubble.
