Design for PRINT

Sales and Marketing literature

Sales and Marketing literature

The epitome of print; the ‘glossy brochure’, is still the most esteemed piece of marketing collateral a company can poses. A brochure is a tactile asset and serious positioning statement that digital media can’t compete with. A brochure reinforces the commitment of a business – but it has to be good…

The Helpful Holidays 2015 brochure, is a 230 page, full colour production with over 2,000 photographs, and printed en masse via web. Design Centric have produced the Helpful Holidays brochures since 2012 – together with many other marketing pieces.

Sales and Marketing literature

Sales and Marketing literature

The beauty of print can be seen in many forms and utilise many substrates. The Gidleigh Park brochure is bound in hand-died racing green leather with blind embossed logo to the front with a lime green suede inner. The litho printed internals are die-cut to shape and finished with a matt lamination and spot UV varnish. A truly sumptuous piece.

Bovey Castle required something on quite a different scale for their estate map. This small item is designed to snuggly fit into a jacket pocket.

Print based advertising


We have created advertising concepts and generated artwork for most advertising media, including; London cabs, public transport, 48 sheet posters, periodicals, newspapers, and many one-off and specialist items, such as beer mats, and posters the size of an average semi!

The Exeter International Airport campaign included on-site advertising, external banners and hordings, signage and various forms of press advertising over a 12 month period.

Direct mail

Direct Mail

Despite the growing trend in social media and digital marketing, well targeted direct mail is still very much alive and well. We design and produce many direct mail pieces, often paralleled with our on-line marketing services (campaign micro-sites, data gathering and email marketing).

We offer full campaign management and fulfilment services, plus, of course, our usual creative design and production services.

Campaign Management

Campaign Management

The Tutankhamun Exhibition at the O2 involved a tremendous and varied amount of design and production work for all sorts of collateral, including; advertising, livery to public transport, POS, display banners, newsletters, booking website, ticketing and itineraries, brochures, branding and style guides. All of which required maticulous project management to ensure the show when on.

As a full-service creative agency, we can help you from first principles to delivery.

Display & Exhibitions

Display & Exhibitions

A Content Management System (CMS) allows you to change your website’s content using a browser-based interface – without having to go back to your web developer. We have taken time to research and trial many content management systems, looking at both flexibility of site development and end-user usability. Perch stood out as the best system in-class for the majority of websites we develop (from business sites to campaign micro-sites).

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) use Perch to good effect and is typical of many sites we develop for marketing campaigns and sporting tournaments. Past website projects utilising Perch include; The Rugby World Cup, The Tutankahmun Exhibition (UK and USA), The Cricket World Cup WT20 – official hospitality site, Twickenham Stadium, The Wimbledon Championships, Cheltenham Race Course (micro-sites) and many more.

End-to-end Service

End-to-end Service

We offer a full end-to-end service, designing and building your website, hosting it and managing all the stuff in-between. Leaving you to focus on the crucial bit – the content (or playing cricket if you prefer).

Site example – ICC World Twenty 20 official Cricket World Cup hospitality site (Client: ICC West Indies).
