Our core focus is to produce work of exceptional quality, successfully communicating your story through distinctive and effective graphic design
What really matters is the story. It’s the story that leads to the creation of a brand identity and website that is true to your organisation. Our aim is to understand you and what you stand for. We begin by listening hard to you and your team. As part of this exercise we can conduct workshops, interviews and research to give us a complete picture.
From this we can write up a clear set of objectives, a positioning statement and a design brief, summing up the main messages you wish to communicate. We then have a process for the design stages from exploring initial concepts that best communicate the story through to finalising the design that is project managed by Stephen, the creative director.
We always aim to produce work of exceptional quality that is distinctive, effective and successful. Distinctive by the design; effective in communicating the messages clearly; and successful in achieving tangible results for the clients.
Franks and Franks are brand identity and web design specialists. In business for over 20 years, we have an established reputation and a track record of working with a broad range of clients from major organisations through to smaller companies and charities; whether local, national or global. Previous clients and projects have included identities for NatWest, Motability, Carbery and a number of SMEs in partnership with the Design Council. Current clients are listed below.
Previously, both Stephen and Sarah gained experience with major London design groups. Stephen was a partner of Coley Porter Bell and Sarah was creative director at Newell and Sorrell (now Interbrand).
Stephen Franks is creative director and project coordinator. Never wanting to become too big – clients are able to work directly with Stephen and the team of designers and specialist web developers. When needed, we bring in a range of talented professionals, from marketing consultants, researchers, copywriters and others with specialist skills – and manage this for you.
Stephen Franks is a member of D&AD.
