GOOD GRAPHIC DESIGN IS THE FOUNDATION OF SHARP MARKETING!

By working with us, you are accessing a team of experienced, forward thinking creative graphic designers. We handpick which designer works on your project by matching your vision for the design with the designer who is best suited to achieve that design.

You’ll no longer need to understand the difference between a PDF and a j-peg, or your dots per inch to your pixels. Working with professional vector based programs; Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator & Adobe InDesign to name a few, our graphic designers can create designs for you in any required format.

We’re also big on protecting your brand through appropriate brand protection such as trademarks and house style guides so that once we do graphics work for you, forever after you have a clear guide on how to maintain a consistent corporate identity.

A professional graphic design service requires creative intelligence, and asking the right questions, to ensure we can achieve a design that you love (after all you have to look at it each day) but more importantly which will resonate with your target market and existing clients.

Brand Strategy Sessions

Starting from scratch? We can conduct a brand strategy session and assist with business names, availability and positioning. These sessions are instrumental in exploring the brands cape you will operate in and intimately understanding your target market.

Brand Design

We design brands and logos that speak to your personal or business brand. We do this by getting to know what it is you want to communicate.Our highly experienced graphic designers take into account colour, typography and imagery to make the elements work together for greatest impact.The main purpose of a logo is to identify your brand as distinct from others in the same market place. It becomes the signature of your business.A good logo becomes a tangible asset for a business, and communicates it’s message and values. It’s important that a logo can be printed at any size, and be effective in monochrome or black & white.

Brand Style Guides

There are basic brand style guides which are just a couple of pages of colour palettes and typography and there are comprehensive brand style guides which expand on the proposed journey of your brand to document and unify how you present on not just traditional channels such as print, but in the digital age we live in, your website, social media, and more. Things such as the imagery you use on social media and hashtags need to be considered, as does the imagery and copy on your website. Do you have a brand style guide? Does it communicate all of this. If you are serious about looking cohesive and professional, you need a comprehensive brand style guide to ensure all of your brand style elements work together for greatest impact, whatever the medium.

Marketing Collateral

Professional marketing collateral will be ‘on-brand’ and effectively communicate your messages to your audience.

We have extensive experience designing all sorts of documents and formats including but not limited to business cards, stationery, presentation folders, capability statements, annual reports, prospectus’s, visual identity kits, duplicate or triplicate pads, books, bound documents and cards/invitations to name a few!

Given our intimate knowledge of the printing process, we can also advise and design your collateral in a way that will be most cost efficient for printing, if that’s a requirement.

Printing

We have a range of wholesale printing partners giving us access to fast turnaround times and cheaper rates than you could otherwise get from a retail printer. There are price efficiencies if you are wishing to print standard items such as business cards, flyers or stationery. However if your job is a little more custom, we can also quote and arrange this.

Oh, and we deliver all over Australia or Internationally!

When it comes to printing, you don’t know what you don’t know. Leave the printing jargon to us!

Our Design process
01. BRIEFING
We will extract a brief of what you want your brand/marketing collateral to look like, and will discuss colour schemes and font selections. We will explore the brandscape, USPs, competitors and more.
02. CONCEPTS & CONTEXT
Drawing on the brief, we will develop a set number of design concepts for you to consider, providing commentary/context of the creative intelligence behind each design concept.
03. DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
In this step we obtain your feedback, guide you in decisions, and based on this refine your preferred design/s.
04. FINALISE & SUPPLY FINAL FILES
In the final round we will finalise the design and supply the completed design in the required format/s (colour, reverse, high res, low res, .jpg, .png etc.)

TESTIMONIALS

Our Happy Design Clients

Naomi Andrews, National Business Development Manager, Digital Careers

“The Creative Collective had a complex challenge to pull together a brand for us given the number of stakeholders and different target markets the brand had to appeal to. The workshopping process was thorough and The Creative Collective were very responsive in our requirements to finalise the end result. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback as we’ve used this brand out in the marketplace. It really seems to be resonating with the target markets.”

Marie Walton, ArtinU

“Yvette and Kat are the most energetic, vibrant and trend-setting team I have ever encountered. Always cheerful, smiling, superbly intelligent and on-the-ball they make the graphic design process a wonderful and happy adventure of discovery. What’s more I feel “safe” in their capable hands as beyond their obvious talents they work to the highest standards of ethics and integrity which can be a rare commodity in today’s commercial world. I retained the Creative Collective on the basis of my initial impression of Yvette herself and as such my expectations were set “very high” – I was not disappointed – my expectations were met “admirably”by both Yvette and Katrina. What more can I say – they are the best! “

Mark Cunningham

“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”

“I am so thrilled with what this company can do in a day. It has been such a breeze working with them and they have made everything really easy and simple. I have unsuccessfully tried previously to get my websites up and running and I finally have a stunning website and branding. Couldn’t recommend you guys enough! 10/10!”

“Could not recommend this amazing company enough. I have had all of my branding + my website done by the team at Creative Collective and am so happy and impressed by the attention to detail, professionalism, patience (I am extremely fussy) and care shown by each and every staff member I dealt with. 1 year on I am still constantly receiving compliments from my clients on my beautiful logo and website. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the team at Creative Collective I am so happy with everything you have done for me and my business. Special shout out to Bronte who continues to go above and beyond!”
