Why should you think about working with Design Community? Well, firstly we’ve spent a great deal of time building a community of like minded people with complimentary skills across a wide range of areas including web design, graphic design, advertising, marketing, web development, video production, video editing, magazine design and much more.
We’re also pretty good at what we do (see our testimonials page) and we work very well with clients who work with us in helping achieve their goals. For our part we listen, we learn and we immerse ourselves in your business and products. Only then can we recommend solutions that are right for you and will help to grow your company. Oh, just so you know, we’re not very skilled at packaging or PR (there are plenty of people out there better at this than us).
We design and produce work for a wide range of small, medium, large and very large clients in the Hull, Leeds & York area and across Yorkshire, the UK and Europe. If you think we can help, give us a call and let’s have a chat.

Advertising and Design Quotes
If it doesn’t sell, it isn’t creative.
Advertising is totally unnecessary. Unless you hope to make money.
Jef I. Richards
Stopping advertising to save money is like stopping your watch to save time.
The surest way to overspend on advertising is not to spend enough to do a job properly. It’s like buying a plane ticket three-quarters of the way to New York; you’ve spent some money but you don’t arrive.
Good design is good business.
Thomas J. Watson Jr.
If design isn’t profitable, then it’s art.
Do you want a beautiful, arty masterpiece that you can frame and put on the wall or do you want to see your sales curve stop moving down and start moving up?
Great design will not sell an inferior product, but it will enable a great product to achieve its maximum potential.
Thomas J. Watson Jr.
The only important thing about design is how it relates to people.
People ignore design that ignores people.
There is no design without discipline. There is no discipline without intelligence.
Everything is designed. Few things are designed well.
Don’t design for everyone. It’s impossible. All you end up doing is designing something that makes everyone unhappy.
The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the process to ‘tidy up’ the mess, as opposed to understanding it’s a ‘day one’ issue and part of everything.
A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de Saint Exupéry
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.
Search all the parks in all the cities, you’ll find no statues of committees
Early to bed. Early to rise. Work like hell and advertise.
There are no short cuts to any place worth going.
