Are We Right For Each Other?
Choosing your designer is a big decision and we’d like to help you make the right decision. We’re not right for everyone – and not everyone is right for us – so if we can tell you a little bit more about us, you can make a more informed decision. Whilst our own website is being redesigned, you’ll probably check out our holding page first and hopefully that will be enough for you want to investigate us a bit further. So, here you go – a bit more about us…
We work from home. We used to have an office in West Didsbury, but we could see our house from it and we figured it didn’t make a lot of sense to be paying rent when we had lovely rooms at home we could convert into office space. So, if you want a designer with a swanky suite of offices, we’re probably not for you. However, if you want to feel immediately relaxed, with fresh coffee on tap (or, until the novelty wears off, even a juice from our beloved Nutribullet), we might just be for you. Working from home also gives us the flexibility to work hours that suit you – if you need to meet in the evening, if we’re available, we can do that. And sometimes, we might even have a cheeky glass of wine. If it’s past 6pm 😉
We don’t call ourselves a design agency – we’re just people who love designing and are very lucky that we can actually make a living out of it. We’re a very small team – and that’s just how we intend to stay. We get most of our work in the most brilliant way possible – through word of mouth and through recommendations. So, you definitely won’t see us putting ourselves up for awards or promoting what we do through any other means than our own social media. If you’ll feel better having your design work done by a bigger agency, with receptionists and account managers and a team of designers, who you may never get to meet, then we’re not the people for you.
We like to really get to know our “clients” – who we prefer to call “friends” because once we start working with people, that’s generally what they become, if they’re not already. So, if that all sounds just a bit too informal, maybe we’re not for you. And we like to stick around too – once we’ve worked closely with you on something as important as your brand, or your website, we don’t like to walk away and leave to your own devices. So, if long term relationships aren’t that important to you, maybe we won’t be your kind of people.
We are extremely professional, diligent and hard-working and will always, always try to make things as fabulous as possible for you. Sometimes, things can go wrong, but if you’ve come to us because you share our values, we’ll always work it out. Life’s too short not to.
So, now you know a bit about us, what about you? Basically, if you’re a nice person, we’ll want to work with you. That’s about how demanding we get…
