Design Eclectic was formed in 2001 by Joanne Somerville and Duncan Kerr who used their combined experience and contacts to set up a different kind of design, web and marketing agency.
We deliberately choose not to have in-house account managers or designers. Instead, we retain freelance creatives and project managers, all experienced professionals, who prefer to work unhampered by traditional agency restraints.
We are determined to provide the type of approachable, flexible and cost-effective service not always available from bigger graphic design, web and marketing agencies.
We're committed to providing value for money and our set-up gives our clients the best of both worlds. Continually fresh creativity and originality, combined with unbelievable turnaround times and precision project management at a fair and reasonable price.
We're passionate about providing the very best creative solutions to deliver measurable results for our clients.
Many creative people feel restricted within the confines of a traditional agency which ultimately has a detrimental effect on their work, however, working freelance can also cause them problems. Our setup allows the creative team to concentrate solely on what they are best at with the freedom to work how, and when they want which results in consistently fresh and innovative work.
Why we what we do
We're not going to lie, we've been doing this for a while now but that hasn't dented our enthusiasm or determination. We are definitely not the stereotypical marketing, web or design agency, that's just not our style. We don't use trendy buzz words, we won't use technical jargon and we're not interested in awards or industry plaudits for our work. We just love the challenge of providing innovative marketing that delivers real results for our clients and we're almost obsessive (in a good way) about doing this quickly and efficiently with no messing about!
