Why indeed. Well I am a graphic designer, creative director at WithBrand with over 20 years experience. I am an ideas person also seen by some as a strong web designer, techy or Joomla! trainer. But there is a common thread to all of this that sticks everything together like glue which is branding and business visual identity. It really does influence every aspect of my creative thinking. It's where we like to start, at the beginning, or to be able to take an existing business brand in a new direction.

Branding is the bigger picture of what you do. It’s your voice or footprint that people respond and engage with and importantly over time will remember and become loyal too. This is where we want to be. Working with businesses and non-profit organisations creating distinctive and recognisable brands with engaged customers. And that pretty much hits the nail on the head. Here are our core design disciplines we work on with clients:
