Print – Design, Marketing and more

Although we are mainly a digital agency – creating design, online marketing, social media, video production often for small business – we still find a use for print. It has its uses!

We can design for your print needs – whatever they are – business cards, brochures, bifolds, trifolds, flyers, leaflets, catalogues, either from existing templates or radically new and to your tastes and ideas.

Business cards are the obvious example of this. They remain in use constantly these days. It is almost the same for brochures, leaflets and catalogues.

Print and digital – design for the small business

The Importance of Print Design for the Internet Age.

For any small business it is often the case that major online campaigns are not an option. Certainly a simple or basic website may be on the table but print remains something they can use:

Print still has its uses. The flyer or the brochure you take away for later. That paper or card in your hand can remind you of something you have forgotten, if it can do it for you then it can for your potential clients and customers. The business card reminds you who you need to ring. Yours gives the hand you just shook some numbers to punch a little later.

Colour is one of the basics, one of the foundations of both the branding process, the result, of course, being a fully designed and articulated brand, with a suitable setting.
