Even in black and white our work’s colourful…

That’s because no two clients are the same. You all have different perceptions. Different ambitions. And different ways of looking at life. So do we.

With 25 years worth of experience we have built our reputation helping clients create strategies, positioning, messaging, effective marketing and design solutions to attract their customers and potential customers, for print or the screen.

Our Approach

Our approach is simple, we treat every project uniquely. We aim to understand what makes each client different by asking questions about their respective markets and how we can imaginatively translate and express their needs. We deliver all aspects of the project down to the finest detail - be it a brochure, website, prospectus or logo, and even to the colour of staples used!

Our clients trust us to deliver what we promise, on time and on budget.

We have been working with Mercer Design for the past seven years. The team has taken us through a complete re-branding campaign, the 2015 Rugby World Cup celebrations and the School’s 450th anniversary in 2017. Wide-ranging projects have included prospectuses, advertising, exhibitions, a 260-page anniversary book and merchandise design. All these have benefited from their creativity, innovative ideas, skill and a willingness to go the extra mile, even when under some serious pressure!

Website Design

We design and build websites that are both attractive, cost effective and functional. A website is for many the first place a customer looks so it needs to not only look good but work to current web standards. We offer ongoing advice and support throughout the process to ensure that you have the best possible content, driving tangible results and showing visitors exactly what your company can do for them. We offer a range of support and training options, as well as ongoing SEO and social media support so that you can really make the most of your site.

Brand Identity

Branding is essential to create an immediately recognisable corporate identity that not only sets you ahead of your competitors but adds value to your products and service. We have over 25 years experience working with companies and schools to small independent start-ups. From a logo and brand identity for a new business, to refreshing branding for an existing business, we capture the essence of our clients identity and make them stand out in their particular market place.

School Magazine Design

We design school magazines that not only look good, but are engaging and interesting, whether it be in the traditional printed form or as online interactive versions. No matter the size of readership, we apply creative and stylish design to your magazine that will engage your readers. We work with all sizes of organisations and schools, helping to modernise and inject some style back into their publications increasing awareness and readership.


We design and build eCommerce solutions, from simple online payment forms to fully functioning online shopping sites that work with all the major payment platforms.

Brochure Design

We create brochures that inspire and inform, in all shapes and sizes, beautifully crafted to represent your organisation, company and products. We can also handle all of the print requirements to make sure your finished brochure is superb and of the highest quality. Printed brochures have survived the digital revolution and have emerged stronger, proving that creative brochure design will captivate and interest an audience and appeal to more senses than anything online.

School Prospectus Design

We have worked closely with the Heads and senior management of many independent schools over the last few years. We are therefore very aware that no two are the same - each has its particular challenges and ambitions. So, we have no blanket solutions to offer for a school prospectus design, but we do have, we believe, a fresh approach to messaging that best captures the competitive strength of the school that it is meant to persuade as well as inform, both internally and externally, using clarity of positioning, messaging and design.
