ABOUT US

We are freelance graphic designers based in Manchester, England. Starting with my grandfather, a typographic designer who created greeting cards and posters by hand in the 1950s, design has been in our family for three generations. A family team of designers and printmakers, we have worked together for over twenty years, producing a wide range of illustrations and posters, websites and exhibitions.

 

 

Our digital services include websites and logos, wordpress customisation and branding. Proficient in Illustrator, InDesign & Photoshop as well as traditional methods like letterpress and screenprinting, we offer a range of print services: brochures, posters, flyers, invitations and greeting cards – small and large format – and the design of events and exhibitions.

WE ARE CREATIVE.

Nothing makes us as excited as hearing your ideas and planning new work that responds to your brief in an innovative and imaginative fashion.

WE ARE FRIENDLY.

With years of experience realising the visions of our client base, we work in a way that is amiable, flexible and efficient.

WE ARE INGENIOUS.

Hence the name. Whatever your requirements, we will find inventive solutions and develop them until we have produced a design you are happy with.

“A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
