Man or Mouse Studio Ltd
Maidstone, Kent(2 Reviews)
Man or Mouse Studio is a small business providing all aspects of graphic design and website design. We have been operating since 1992, since before the age of digital artwork and the internet, and have evolved and adapted as technology has reshaped the industry.
Our graphic design experience spans just about anything and everything which might be asked of us, from simple logo design to full identity and branding development; from flyers to corporate brochures and technical literature; from carrier bag artwork to product labelling and packaging; from local press advertising to national trade press advertising campaigns.
We have built websites ranging in function from brochure sites of just a few pages to bespoke programmed sites with e-commerce, customer login and bespoke shopping cart with product filtering and multiple discounts.
And all of this work has been carried out in the broadest range of B2B and B2C industries and market sectors. Take a look at our website to see just a few examples of what we can do and have done.

Man or Mouse Studio Ltd Q&A
What makes a great website?
Today, websites are one of the most important assets of an organisation or business. Having a credible, professional and engaging online presence is essential. A number of factors make for a great website. First of all, it must grab your attention and a be well organised, effortlessly giving your audience what they need. Creativity is very important. Great websites use good, contemporary design and creative ideas. This makes them memorable and relevant to the organisations they are built for. Successful websites offer simple and user friendly navigation. Visitors must find everything they need quickly and easily. Search engine optimisation (SEO) is very important because it will help bring an audience to the website.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What do you require? For example, a corporate brochure, website, sales literature, editorial, branding, logo design, advertisement / artwork.
What is the budget for the job? Before beginning work a budget should be provided and/or an estimate agreed.
What is the format? Please supply relevant information about physical dimensions, page count, construction, pixel dimensions, colour profiles etc.
Why is this required? What do you want to achieve in the short/long term?
Who do you want to reach? Describe business type, group of people or individual type of person, position or status held, age, sex and other info.
What is your single most important message? What message do you want to primarily communicate to your target audience?
What is your Unique Selling Point? Please tell us what is unique about the product or service you are selling. What makes yours different?
What is your rationale? Why should the audience believe what you claim? Why would your audience want to read, watch or listen to what is produced?
Describe your creative process.
Start with the client brief. Make sure that you fully understand the client’s requirements. Make sure that you get all relevant information from the client. The job can then briefed to a designer or creative team in such a way that they completely understand the requirement and what the end result of the creative process should be. The designer or creative team can now use their skills to produce a number of ideas or designs which should explore the brief from different angles. The reason for this is to supply the client with a number of good creative alternatives. Finished creative ideas or designs are reviewed internally, weaker ideas can be weeded out. The stronger ideas and designs can then be presented to the client. A member of creative staff should be present at the presentation if required.
Why should our clients choose you?
We provide excellent and relevant work at a price that won’t break your budget. Apart from that we are professional, friendly and approachable. We always listen to our client’s needs and work with them to get most effective outcomes from our work. Creativity is also very important to us as we believe that it gives any design or marketing material a real edge and advantage over competitors.

Whether finding content to continue a theme, drawing maps or plans of new houses or some simple image retouching, we can do what need’s doing.
Branding & Identity
We believe a logo should not only reflect the needs, qualities and positioning of the company, product or service, but also say something of its personality and go on to form its own identity. Logos need to be designed to reflect the company they represent: strong, bold and industrial; youthful, funky and active; professional, business-like and established. We have produced many logos over the years. Sometimes for a new business; sometimes to bring an existing logo more up to date; and sometimes to completely relaunch an identity.
Design for Print
We produce modern and functional designs based around creative ideas which communicate key messages with ease. Our experience includes design for brochures, catalogues, reports and accounts, stationery, magazines, packaging, exhibition graphics and just about everything else that ends up being printed. We are also very good at producing detailed infographics which communicate using graphs, diagrams and illustrations.
Whether a simple static site of just a few pages or a multi-layer site with ecommerce and CRM, we have examples to show. We can build directly using html, we can build on Umbraco or WordPress open source, or we can programme bespoke. We never forget that a website is often the first encounter one has with an organisation, so we always endeavour to create a site which is engaging and appealing, whatever the subject matter. All websites we do are responsive and optimised for all devices.
Man or Mouse Studio has designed, planned and programmed a number of bespoke applications written to fulfil specific requests. Beginning with a blank screen, applications are programmed from scratch to fulfil any functions, features or purpose required. All information is then editable by the clients as freely and frequently as they wish.
