Responsive Website Design

Over the last past years, responsive web design has been gaining popularity and is now considered to be one of the best ways to design websites that look great on any device, from smartphones to smart TVs. So, what is responsive website design? A better question to ask might be, what problem does responsive website design solve? Well, as you may have noticed, computers aren’t the only piece of hardware with a web browser anymore. Nearly every phone and tablet has the facility to view websites nowadays. In an ideal world our customers will all be sat at their desk drinking coffee when they stumble across our sites but this is no longer true. With people being busier than ever & the staggering growth in mobile usage now means that you can no longer assume your website will be viewed on a desktop browser. In fact, in a year's time, a greater percentage of visits to your site will be made via mobile than a desktop computer - making responsive web design an absolute must. Have you ever tried to access a website on a mobile or tablet device and been frustrated by broken or unloadable content? This is how your customers will experience your brand without responsive website design or at least a site that fits the browser! ...

Brochure Design to suit all purposes...

A well designed brochure is not only a great advertisement for your company, but can also be a great tool for a major meeting or presentation. This 8 page A4 brochure was produced for Manchester based company "365 Technical Plant Services". Needing just 20 copies for a a very important client presentation, we were asked to come up with a simple but effective concept to display their renewable energy technology, and to leave a lasting impression on their potential customer. Our simple yet creative design idea went extremely well at the presentation getting our client the desired result - and from the initial 20 copies of the brochure for the meeting -  a much larger production run proceeded a few weeks later, the customer confident that that they were on the right promotional path. We know that not everyone needs thousands of brochures, that's why we think it's important to get the right product and volume to the right client - be it a single digital copy for web distribution or a web site, 10 copies individually personalised for a presentation, or 10,000 for mass production, we can help promote your message out to your customers, cheaply and effectively...   ...

Conversational Thai Logo Design Leigh

We were approached by an already existing Leigh based company to create them a brand identity and corporate logo. We set out by creating 9 bespoke and totally unique logos which NW Design take great pride in. I have not yet found another graphic design agency that offer this service with this quality without spending £1000's. We then sent Li the proofs and asked her to pick out a number of logos she liked. We then worked with Conversational Thai for a number of weeks manipulating the logo design until it was just right and finished up with the logo you see above. We believe we offer a first class Logo Design service and many hours of our time go into creating you a bespoke look and feel. View more of our final logo designs. We've had customers come to us after already spending £1000's with big city agencies only to be disappointed with the end result.  A recent customer of ours said "They said they would create us 5 unique logo's for £2000" The logos were different whereas they were the same logo just different colours. ...

Hopefully the team have also won the award for most publicised rally team in the championship and it's with thanks to Michael Davies of Rally Stage Media Reporting. ...

What does #ff mean? - Twitter Tips

Since doing our Blog post on using Twitter #Hashtags Part 1 we decided to elaborate on some more abbreviated Twitter terms. We’re asked by clients all the time about how they can get involved in Twitter and what all the abbreviated terms mean. I always say that you’re only allowed 140 characters in a tweet so sometimes you need to keep things short and sweet to portray your message. We’ve been asked recently by what is the #ff that they see in their newsfeed every Friday… Well here goes. ...

Tuning Developments Flyer Design

Flyers and Leaflets are a great way to get the word out about you and what you are doing, whether you’re running a promotional sale on a product for your business, advertising for a charity event that will be running in town soon, or a meeting for members of the community about what to do with left-over funds from last year’s school budget. However, it’s important to make sure those flyers get noticed, and with the help of NW Design we can assure you that we will spend the time to create you an eye catching flyer/leaflet that will be too good to be thrown away. A returning customer Tuning Developments LTD Birchwood asked us to create them a new double sided A5 flyer which they could take to a performance tuning show the coming week. The flyers primary aim was to showcase their products and services to potential new customers. We managed to create a leaflet that was eye catching yet informative to the customer. We pride ourselves on our Leaflet and Flyer design, and many hours of design go into every one to make them unique and original. We believe that creative graphic design shouldn't be thrown together and we work closely with the customer to ensure that your design is just right. We even offer an unlimited* amendment policy until its just right. *subject to fair use ...

Now a series of A5 mini brochures

MHA Lighting is an award-winning LED lighting specialists and cover many different industries including lighting for multi-storey car parks to medical sectors. We were asked to design another mini brochure for MHA making a set of 5 so Far and this mini brochure covers LED lighting for manufacturing facilities. These brochures have been proving ever popular for us lately and we believe this is because brochure design is a key component to the marketing of many businesses large and small. Well-designed mini brochures can present a positive image of the firm while providing helpful information about the products or services offered. Another benefit of these small brochures are that they can be area specific which means gone are the days of re-printing 1000’s of brochures because you no longer stocked a product or offered a particular service. ...

Amber Hodgkiss Website Design

The result at www.amberhodgkiss.com, is an engaging content managed website that allows Amber freedom to add text, pictures or video, whenever and wherever she is in the world at any time.

Logo and stationery design...because image matters...

With so much competition around in these difficult times, presenting the right image for your business has never been so important. Well designed and printed stationery could be the first step in winning that new client or contract - and may not be as expensive as you think. An attractive logo and business card is not only asthetically pleasing to look at, but can also be the first step in reasurring your customers that you are professional in every aspect of your trade. So many times we've worked with clients who have been using badly photocopied quotations, or cheaply produced business cards to promote themselves. At NW Design we can help give your business that professional look - an investment that could last for many years to come... ...
