What our clients say...
"We worked with Dot Media on the redesign of our group branding after we restructured our offer. It was important that we retained the spirit of the original branding. Gareth understood this and provided a series of concepts, ultimately leading to the designs we now proudly use on our website and marketing materials. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gareth's services to anyone."
Andrew Bird - Nile Blue
"We were looking for a fresh, new look to suit our move to Lisbon, Portugal. Dot Design has certainly come up with that and we enjoyed working with Gareth throughout the design process. We especially value Dot Design's easy-going, yet professional approach, which for us, has delivered a very pleasing and appropriate result."
Carl Munson - OurNet Community Builder
"Branding and a good website are very important for any start up. After research, I decided to go with Dot Design, partly on price, basis of their other work and partly on gut feeling. I have not been disappointed. We have worked well together, shared ideas, and have ended up with excellent branding and website. Instructing Dot Design has been a great decision."
Ian Walker - Founder of Ian Walker Family Law and Mediation Solicitors
"Gareth at Dot Media was prompt and always more than happy to help with last-minute requests we had from clients to design promotional and exhibition materials. The designs were always of a high standard, and as required for the event. Whatever the timescale Gareth gave, he stuck to it, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him."

Dot Design Media Ltd Q&A
What makes a great website?
A companies website is your first (digital) impression for your potential clients or customers and you want to make sure it’s a great one. Your website should visually communicate everything you want potential customers to know and also importantly remember about your business.
If you are using your website as a selling tool with opportunities for customers to make purchases through your website, then clarity of purpose is important. Can the visitor find everything they need? Are contact details easy to find and use. Are you visually putting the customer at ease that you provide a quality service/product/experience?
It’s 2019 and your website is more important than ever before. People need to be able to access it easily on any device, be it mobile, tablet or other. Customers expectations are high as is competition in most markets.
These are the top things that we believe make up a great website:
• Responsive design (does it work well and adapt on mobile, tablets and desktop)
• Branding - is it obvious who the website represents and what you do?
• User-friendly - is it easy to navigate around and find information.
• Simplicity - this is key, an overloaded and mulled site means people won’t be hanging around
• Good engaging content - give users a reason to come or at least stay awhile.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What is the purpose, objective or goal for your design project?
ie: Is it to boost sales, build a brand, info the user, focus on a new service or product etc?
What time scale are you working to and what’s the scope of the project?
Is there a preferred mode of communication?
What is the rough budget of the project?
Describe your creative process.
It all starts with questions, the how, why and when. We want to find out more about your business, what you are looking to achieve and the ideas you have already. We will listen and think over your responses, then add in our own ideas.
We then outline each stage of the project, making sure we are all working to the same brief and specifications and objectives. We then agree milestones and what can be expected at each stage of the project.
We then roll up our sleeves and get the creative juices flowing. Using past experience, knowledge and skills we look to create something that not only meets the brief and needs of your company but also is innovative and memorable.
Once you have mulled over our creative efforts we gain your feedback and incorporate into amendments and tweaked designs.
Once everyone is happy we create the final logo design, website, printed material whatever the project might be.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
We would need timescales, budget, any content, images that are to be used or we can help with those as well.
What do you love most about your job?
Every project and day is different and a new challenge to create a visual solution to a problem. We love everything design wise, typography, colour, trends, a blank page.
What inspired you to start your own business?
We wanted to make our own way, choose new project and challenges. Do it our way!
