What’s different about us?
Let’s tell you something about us at childsdesign. Through a multitude of skills, childsdesign has been able to offer brand and graphic design, website design and development, marketing, social media and SEO, alongside photographic solutions to a diverse list of clients – from small local businesses to major market-leading brands known throughout the world in an equally varied range of market sectors.
We understand the importance of deadlines, which we meet successfully through effective workflow management. We have many years experience producing artwork that actually prints (!) and can work some pretty impressive magic when it comes to your images.
We have a simple philosophy – at childsdesign, we want to create quality commercial solutions for our clients, that give them the results that they want. In order to do this, we must work together to get the results, and in working together our clients get the greatest, cost effective results we are able to give them within their budgets. We’re not an expensive design agency by any means, but we do have to charge our clients a sensible amount for what we produce – at the end of the day we all have to make a modest living.
We’ve been around long enough to know what we’re doing and we have a large folio of work to show prospective clients, along with a whole heap of testimonials. We don’t get involved in un-paid pitches to prove our worth, we’re able to prove that through the clients we’ve already worked with.
Just as we do a lot of listening to our clients, we ask that they read and understand our terms and conditions and that no ‘assumptions’ are made about how we are working together. childsdesign is not only about creative design, but also creating long lasting working relationships with our clients. We want you to grow your business and we want to grow along side you, not just be there to make a ‘quick buck’ on our first job for you and then move onto the next.
childsdesign understand project management and workflow (we’ve even helped clients and other agencies with in-house design studios streamline their own production). It’s often over looked by many creative companies, but is a very important and vital part of everything we do. Understanding one another’s needs and expectations throughout any project will always lead to the best creative and leave your budget intact.
In short, mutuality and respect for one another.
Below you’ll find a little more about us as we briefly introduce childsdesigns partners, Graham and Lisa. If you’d like to know even more about us and how we could work together, give us a call, drop us an email or send your enquiry from anywhere throught our website.
Graham grew up in the entertainment sector with an enviable job designing film posters, games packaging, CD covers and everything else a young designer could desire.
Moving into the the retail sector, working for many years with some of the country’s biggest brands, he is now creative director of childsdesign. He is still working with some of the same clients (although all in new roles).
His hands-on approach means he understands all aspects of production, so as well as coming up with effective design solutions for his clients, he personally undertakes much of the artwork, photography and complicated retouching that childsdesign’s clients require.
These images show just some of the clients and projects that Graham has enjoyed working with throughout his career.
Lisa has had a varied career in publishing. Working on bespoke local publications to international magazines, specialist event and business to business publications, along with support material for advertising and exhibitions.
Her commercial approach to design has led to her achieving numerous industry awards for her publication and advertising design over the years.
Lisa has a key role as design partner at childsdesign, not only designing, but ensuring that our clients’ briefs are met and undertaking much of the social media design and content management for our clients.
