  • I would recommend this business

James assisted our Cricket Club with a new logo design. His approach from start to finish was very refreshing. He took time to understand the history of our club and our current vision/strategy. This was then factored in to the different design options that we had to choose from.
The end result is a new, fresh design that reflects our club but with a more modern look.
Thank you very much!
I would recommend JD Designs without hesitation.

Customer Testimonials

Huge thanks to JD Designs for their above & beyond service and outstanding designs for our company. Thanks to them, we've had amazing feedback from our customers and a nice boost in sales as well. Top work! Highly recommended!

Wow! James took my initial primitive design to a point where I have a brand that will stand out, look professional and still encompasses everything we wanted to retain. I can not recommend them enough. Top notch, Thank you from everyone at Teddy Hewitt Foundation

Me and James have worked together for around a year and a half now.

Every step of the way he has been brilliant to work with. He has brought us to what our company is today, he created our brand, brand guidelines professionally. Also he has assisted with a massive brochure for our company with info-graphics, and amends all in one. He has gone beyond what we expected!

Create guy, professional and wouldn't fault a thing.

From Our Website

James was an absolute dream to work with. He is extremely talented and professional. We would recommend him without any hesitation. He was able to brilliantly bring together our old logo and current ideas into a new logo that we are extremely happy about and which encapsulates our society perfectly. We can't thank him or recommend him enough. JD Designs were a great help at developing a new sub-brand for us. They produced some great designs that fitted the brief perfectly and also made some helpful suggestions about how it could be developed further.

We've teamed up with a local print company who eat, drink and sleep printing. They have over 40 years of unparalleled knowledge and state of the art machinery and, like us, they've serviced globally recognised brands and small businesses. Give your printed products a creative edge with a range of finishes, such as UV varnish, foil embossing and die cuts, without compromising quality and delivery times.

The London Southbank University contacted us to rebrand their Occupational Therapy Society. The existing logo needed an update and the graphic elements that made up the leaves became unrecognisable at small scales. The client wanted the tree to remain as a focal point, whilst including a human element to the new logo. We created a new logo with a round shaped tree and a woman resting alongside it, promoting the inclusive nature of the Society. The easy to reach fruit evokes accessibility, inclusivity and achieving goals.

Print collateral is still an integral part of the marketing mix. We listen, understand and translate your needs into a unique and powerful brand communication tool. Holding a finished print in your hands creates a satisfying, interactive and memorable experience. In a digital age, print offers a physical connection to your brand. Whether you require brochures, flyers, signage, stationery or anything in between, we provide creative solutions to communicate your message clearly, whilst adhering to your brand identity, budget and time-frame.

Now, onto one of our favourite services: illustration. Illustration that is carefully curated and executed can grab an audience's attention and remain in the forefront of people's minds and create conversations. With attention spans decreasing, the demand for eye-catching and engaging illustration and imagery rises. In order to really stand out and promote your brand, be unique and tell a crafted story through illustration. We create with both traditional and digital media, with styles tailored towards the brand and brief.

Each interaction, every element of your communication - whether it's a banner on your website, a sales campaign, colour choice or email signature - is a part of your brand. Your brand identity will define how potential and existing customers interact with your services and influences the final buying decision. So what's the key to a successful brand? A carefully crafted, considered and consistent brand is the most important step towards success for your business. Naturally, you'll want to be seen to fit in with your industry, whilst having stand-out features that get you noticed.

We know from experience that your online presence is vital to your business. A professional and accessible website is essential to achieve your full marketing potential. Whether you're a startup or established business, we have packages to suit any budget. Everyone likes a bit of attention, right? A like, comment, or re-tweet can go a long way; creating a powerful marketing tool. Our social media setup provides a tailored approach to every business, capturing the right audience and keeping them engaged.
