Function & Form

(or... purpose & passion)

All pencils are not the same...

A pencil can be so simple to achieve it’s aim, to make a mark. Yet there are thousands of styles and types of pencil out there. Why?

Every product you interact with every day is the product of design, a deliberate decision between the item’s form (what it looks like) and its function (what it does and how it does it). The pencil is no different, each is designed for a specific purpose or need. It can be dead simple, but it doesn’t always need to be...

No matter what we design for you, from a brand ID to a modern responsive website, this balance of form and function are key to a final result that engages with your customer and communicates your message clearly and succinctly.

The Obsessives

(meet the team)

For over 18 years I’ve been a specialist in crafting design that really works for our clients.

Sometimes it’s on trend and fashionable. At other times it’s traditional and simple. But it’s always effective thanks in part to a background in sales and marketing.

We know that each piece we create must do more than be simply eye-catching. It must communicate your values, your message, and bring value to the user and your business.

Jeff

My love and passion for clear visual communication and engaging design ensures the client gets a thought through end product rather than just a pretty picture.

My enjoyment of culture, art, and design all help bring a unique flavour to the work. I love to create outstanding work and to allow my passions for design to flourish and benefit the client. 

I’ve come to know that each client has a specific requirement for their business, and my desire is to see that delivered.

Ben

Supporting the team means the creative guys can really spend time to achieve the outcome they’re so passionate about.

My role within the company is to give space to the creatives to allow them to express the desire and intensity they have for their work. That means our clients get the outcomes they want and deserve.

The guys have the time and space to think about the right strategy, trends that apply to the task, and delivering stunningly crafted projects to the client.

Human & Style

(or... passion & purpose)

It’s probably true that many businesses find approaching designers a little overwhelming.

Designers do have a bit of a reputation of being a little ego driven shall we say. But a great designer is open to ideas, thoughts, and new experiences.

We pride ourselves on being down-to-earth people who work with you, not against you. We’ll put our view across along with recommendation of course, but we view our all our project as collaborations with the clients.

Style

We’ll help you tap into the latest trends and styles where applicable—but always with a view to great functionality and usability. We treat the end user as a human, not another designer.

We want them to quickly engage with your product or service and engage with you, on a human level...
