Where is your business based?

Where do you cover?
UK & Abroad

Tell us about your business…
We are a small friendly design agency catering for businesses of all sizes. We specialise in logo’s and branding as well as producing marketing literature and brochures.

We like to work closely with our clients as we feel that a collaborative relationship is the surest way to achieve a successful end result.
We appreciate that every customer is different. From those who have a very clear vision of what they want to achieve to those who want us develop a concept from scratch. We equally adapt at working with either and all points in between.

Our main priority is that our clients come away happy and feel that we have made a positive contribution to their business.

Why did you become Self-Employed?
The company we worked for relocated to another part of the country so we decided, rather than follow them, that we would take advantage of the redundancy package on offer and set up on our own.

How long have you been in business?
17 years

What do you like about running your own business?
I have found that working for myself has been a very positive experience. Although you can never be totally free from external pressures there is no doubt that being self employed affords a far greater autonomy and flexibility than working from within an organisation. I feel that the luxury of being able to work from a home office has been massively beneficial in terms of quality of life and particularly family life.

Why did you decided to become an NBV Biz Ex member?
I wanted to expand my client base both in terms of size and diversity.

What do you enjoy most about the Biz Ex Networking events?
It’s great to meet other people in business and share experiences and knowledge. The venues are well chosen and the speakers are always interesting.
