Welcome to Add Design

Graphic design for web and print - made positively easy

Welcome to Add Design, a graphic design agency based in Colchester. Promoting your company is such a big part of business these days that having a great graphic design company onside to help you can be a godsend.

Yet not all graphic designers are created equal. Some are too busy, some too big (read ‘bank-breaking’), too small (one man and a cat), or too demanding (hissy fits in velvet jackets). Not Add Design. We are a graphic design agency, based in Colchester who work with you to create fantastic graphic and website design that’ll set you apart and take you forward, not only will we design it for you we will print it and deliver it, or publish it online. And because we can also work online, it doesn’t matter if you’re here in Colchester, Essex, in London or in Inverness. We’re right by your side, armed with shedloads of experience.

How Does it Work?

It’s more straightforward than a straight line. Meet us at our office for tea and Hobnobs if you like. Otherwise, we can work with you online providing design drafts directly to your in-box. And we’re easier to work with than putty, thanks to your dedicated account handler. Our aim is to make the creation of your promotional material as easy and stressfree as possible - saving you time and saving you money.

 

We already provide creative solutions for companies, councils and charities in Essex, Suffolk, London and across the rest of the UK and we would love to do the same for you. To find out more about the quality of our online graphic design service, take a look around our website, call one of our Graphic Design advisors on 0845 6436 395 or drop us an enquiry today.

About Us

We work with you to create fantastic design

We may work Online, but we are not Virtual. Not everything on the internet is quite what it is cracked up to be, but you can be confident that our graphic design agency based in Essex is the real deal.

Graphic Designers Essex: Every stroke of our design work is undertaken by our own design team on the outskirts of central Colchester, Essex. Very near to Roller World, not far from the great big castle up the road.

If you are based in Essex or Suffolk and are looking for a graphic design agency near you and would like to see us in person to discuss your project, you are very welcome to drop by – just let us know first so we can make sure the kettle’s on.

For those a little further away or simply too busy to get out, our online graphic design service means that we don’t have to meet face-to-face to create sensational design and print work. Just give us a call or drop us an email and rejoice in the shoe leather and time you’ve saved in finding the right graphic designer.

From our Essex office we have produced knock-out designs and delivered great printwork to businesses, councils and charities across the UK. Some small, some large, and some quite unusual (it is, after all, not every day you get asked to brand a synagogue). We even count the famous Allen Gardiner floating restaurant in Durban Harbour South Africa and the British MOD in Cyprus as among our clients.

Want to see more?

Take a tour around our website to see just a small fraction of the work we have created. Alternatively, talk with one of our very real team in our very real office about your project and how Add Design can help you convert your ideas into a graphic design reality.

Design Process

Simple, brilliant, successful

All our prices include the following design and consultation stages as standard. It is the same brilliant process we have used for hundreds of other successful designs.

Every draft we send is clearly headed up with the current draft stage, so you know exactly where you are in the process. Simply look at the draft, give us your feedback and we will make sure the next version we send you is a beauty.

If you are the type of person who doesn’t like restrictions, then no problem. We can drop in as many additional drafting stages as you need – charged at our very reasonable standard hourly rate.

Want to do things a little differently?

Not all projects are straightforward – we appreciate that. Maybe you need several variations of a single business stationery design? Maybe you need someone to touch up and print an existing design? Maybe you are a graphic designer and just need someone to help with your overflow? Whatever you need, we will do our best to provide.

Just let us know how you want things to be done, and we can put together a proposal and price just for you.

Logo Design

Logos designed to Stand Above the Competition

Your logo is the public perception of your business – it’s where your brand brands and your marketing leaves its mark. Want to look instantly recognisable and distinctive? Just add a great professional logo design.

But your business is worth more than a logo picked off the Internet. You need a professional logo design that captures your uniqueness. And, at Add Design, all our bespoke logos are as fresh as newly baked bread.

But we can’t just pluck one straight from the oven. Baked to perfection means research, and research takes time and effort. So we root around in your filing cabinets. Find what makes you unique. Then design your logo.

But enough of this waffle. Why not check through some of our brilliant logo designs for demanding clients from across the UK and beyond. All that remains to be said is that you’ll get an easy-to-budget fixed price, ideas straight into your inbox, and multiple final files. So that your business looks as great on the company letterhead as it does on your corporate signage.

This is business logo design made positively easy, with a range of fixed-priced packages that remove the uncertainty around creating the perfect logo.

More Information

Want a logo you can be proud of?

We take the uncertainty out of creating a great logo, with our fixed priced logo design packages.

Working with you, our graphic designers can create up to 6 distinctive logo ideas for your business. We then refine your favourite concept into an exceptional logo to help your business stand above the competition.

We start every logo design by understanding everything we can about your business and your customers. Our design brief questionnaire asks the important questions about who you want to target and how you want to position your products and services. We ask for examples of logos you like, either from our own selection or elsewhere, as well as a list of your competitors – so we can ensure that the concepts we create are truly distinctive.

Using your design brief, some fresh research and our own extensive experience we then create a range of different concepts for the logo. Depending on your brief, these may show a wide range of different approaches (from the traditional to the modern, the out-there to the more subdued, the colourful to the refined) or all be based around the same theme. Simply look through the concepts, decide on your favourite and then work with us to refine it into the perfect logo for your business.

What if I don’t like your initial ideas? Our design brief process is designed to ensure that our concepts are right on the money. But very occasionally we might not get there first time. If you are really not happy with any of the concepts we create, then we go back to the drawing board (literally) to create another. By adding your feedback on why our concepts missed the mark to what we already know about your business, we will ensure that the next concept will hit the mark.

Options and Prices

Simple Logo Design

Create a striking and original custom logo with 3 initial design ideas and 3 rounds of drafting. £175 + VAT;

Advanced Logo Package

A bespoke website will match your needs perfectly. You’ll pay only for the features you need. And it’ll build your brand, while taking customers straight to the information they need.

With over 100 website designs already under our belt, our website developers and graphic designers know what they’re doing. Your website will be technically sound as well as visually user-friendly. And you can even control your own content, with our simple self-management system. From promotion of the finished website, to hosting, e-mail management and technical help, it’s all just a click away.

We are so much more than just brilliant graphic designers. To find out more about how a bespoke website from Add Design can make your business shine online contact the studio on 0845 6436 395 or send us an enquiry.

[/accordion_item]Starter Website

Don’t be fooled. Our starter website package may have a simple price-tag, but it is very far from ‘off-the-shelf’.

Bespoke designed by our own graphic designers, check. Secure self-management system so you can control your own content, check. Built with search-engine performance and social media integration in mind, check. Full on-going support with our hosting package.

In fact, our starter website is just the same as our full bespoke service with just two limitations.

1. It can’t include any of the super-duper clever internet stuff we can include with our bespoke websites such as online payments, booking systems, log-in areas, live online chat and that sort of thing.

2. It has a limit on the number of pages we will include – a max of 8. Although between me and you, as soon as you get to grips with the self-management system you will be able to add as many new pages as you like.

Our starter website is not just for start-ups and those who are new on the web. It is for any business looking to update their web presence with something which looks and performs like a modern website should.

And don’t worry if you don’t talk tech, we make everything as clear as a glass of Perrier with our simple design and development process. How refreshing.

Bespoke Websites

Gone are the days when simply having a website was enough. In today’s world it has to perform.

Which is great, because creating brilliant looking websites which turn visitors into real life customers is exactly what we are about.

Our philosophy is simple. No two businesses are the same. So your website should be bespoke designed to your brand, and built with exactly the features you need to make it a success. This takes more than just a lone website designer. It takes the flair of a professional graphic designer, the technical wizardry of a web developer, and the acumen of a marketing professional – all people we have on board waiting to work on your project.

But don’t worry. Our big ideas don’t come with big bills, by using the latest web platforms, techniques and add-ons we really can cut the mustard when it comes to cost

“Quick, efficient and always ready to help, you have brought a level of design and copywriting which has hugely enhanced and developed our brand and the message we are trying to communicate – giving Tour de Force the ‘look’ and ‘feel’ I was looking for. Our new website has received numerous compliments from business colleagues.”

“Before I talk about Add Design, It’s worth noting that although I am now in retail, my previous 22 year career was with BT, where I lead major programmes involving the delivery of complex software based solutions to strict timescales and specifications. I am therefore highly experienced in dealing with application and software development organisations – good and bad…

I’ve been working with Add Design for about 18 months now. Add Design stood out in the tendering phase as being professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and above all sympathetic to the ethos and character of our store. They were also fantastic value, and I was delighted to be able to award them the contract. It was one of the best business decisions I have ever made. They have at all times reacted swiftly and to my needs, produced high quality and beautifully designed web-pages, and provided excellent advice. Justin is always available, always helpful, and his integrity is often demonstrated through his recommendation of DIY solutions above chargeable alternatives. I can honestly say their service is consistently excellent, and I would highly recommend Add Design.”
Michael Grist, Barretts

E-Commerce

We know that selling online can be a great money maker

The total value of E-Commerce in the UK is growing at around 25% per year. One in ten purchases now occurs online. According to Google, the value of the web economy should double by 2016.

So if you don’t have any plans to get your products online, it may be time for a rethink.

We know that selling online can be a great money maker. But we also know the challenges. Your shop needs to be easy to find online, strongly branded, attractive, simple-to-navigate, secure and reliable. In fact, all the things a real shop should be.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Investing in SEO will help your website get seen on the web.

So you have a beautiful new website. Time to put it to work with some Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) so people can find you.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is what you need to do to help you get found more easily on the web- we are mainly talking Google here. With millions of new websites being launched every week, catching Google’s attention can be a real challenge.

Good search engine optimisation is all about the content of your site and making sure you have covered all of the little things that Google is looking for. All of our websites are built with Google performance in mind, but for those who are looking to smash through the rankings some extra help may be needed. This is where our search engine services step in.

We have a range of options available to help build visitor numbers and improve your search engine rankings.

Launch Package

With millions of new websites being launched every week, catching Google’s attention can be a real challenge. Our launch package is a one-hit wonder designed to give your new website a flying start. By optimising the content and telling Google everything we can about you, the chances of your new website ranking faster and higher in the first few weeks is that much greater.

Search Engine Optimisation

With online competition increasing every day, consistently high rankings takes time, effort and more than a few clever tricks. Working alongside a top search engine optimisation company, we offer our customers a clear route to better rankings and higher visitor numbers.

Pay-per-click Advertising

Of course, Google would prefer you to pay to be at the top. Pay-per-click advertising (or Adwords) puts your advert in the sponsored link section on Google searches or in advert boxes across Google’s ad-network. From account set-up, through advert creation and keyword selection, to on-going management and tracking, our pay-per-click campaigns can deliver more website clicks for less.

Want to know which options would suit you? We are very happy to advise.

Testimonials

“The decision to appoint Add Design was an easy one to make and one which I have not regretted. Recognising that we were the lay persons and they the ‘experts’ they led us through each stage and made it clear what information they required from us. We were led to a test site at each stage and asked to review and any changes we wished to make were implemented immediately… We would have no hesitation in recommending Add Design and are looking forward to working with them on a pay-per-click campaign and feel sure that their expertise will help us through that process. Finally, we have found their costs to be very reasonable and certainly competitive.”
