Our Process

The blueprint for success

Brief

We start with a friendly chat about your business philosophy and current position in the market. The project objectives, target audience and timescales will then be discussed.

Research

We delve into your industry, competition and previous visual communications.

Sketches

It’s an age old technique, though sketching is still a very quick and efficient way of testing initial ideas and making amendments.

Concepts

We bring the sketches to life, through high-quality digital designs. Commonly, we’ll provide various options for your approval.

Presentation

We’ll present our design to you and demonstrate our motives behind them.

Development

Any potential revisions will be made and resubmitted for your final approval.

Print

If you’ve selected a print service, we’ll manage the production alongside our local print partners with 40 years experience.

Delivery

The final product will arrive with you as promised, within agreed timescales and budget.

Evolution

We can provide ongoing or future services to lead any brand or design evolution, in line with your business needs.

James Dawson – Owner of JD Designs

I studied at the renowned University of the Arts London, where I gained a comprehensive background in design, production, marketing and brand development. With 15 years experience working for leading businesses in their industries, you are in great hands when it comes to all things creative.

I spend my free time getting outside with my camera, running in my local park or making silly faces to make my baby girl smile. Guilty pleasure: watching wrestling.

The story behind our logo

We’ve studied and worked hard to achieve our dream of becoming graphic designers. Design brings us both joy and the ability to support our families. This elevates our quality of life and allows us to put our heart and soul into each project.

For our branding, we wanted to encapsulate our passion for what we do and enjoyment of collaborating with customers. Through merging the ‘JD’ initials, the logo icon represents the globally recognised hand signal for love. The inner circular section of the ‘d’ is denoted by the clenched middle and fourth finger that creates the hand signal, along with a smile.

The curvaceous design and rounded strokes evoke our friendly, down-to-earth and uncomplicated approach.

A creative new vision not only serves as a tagline, but defines our identity, to deliver innovative solutions to our customers.

Some of the customers we’ve worked with

We have experience working with start-ups and established business in a wide range of industries.
