We refuse to take part in the recession

Markets are shrinking, the economy seems bleak. What can be done to ensure that you can come out of this recession in the best position possible. Well, first of all customers are becoming more choosy which means that you need to be at the top of your game with attractive pricing and great service. It's a fact that business is getting smaller and larger concerns are struggling to meet their overheads and printers are calling in the receivers. Money is moving slowly, though there is no shortage of orders (sound familiar?) Companies with in-house design teams are cutting back on staff and competition in the industry is reducing. So for the smaller design studio, it's an ideal climate. Let's say that we have the balance right, we can save you money by giving free advice. The market is tough, competition is fierce. Time for a rebrand; it is a time when your identity is becoming ever so more important - and your competitors already know this!
So with our free advice on offer and branding expertise and experience that won't break the bank, why not have a corporate relaunch, and get in touch with customers to let them know, it may be that you have customers that have not heard from you for a long time, these are people that you already have a relationship with, so they already value your advice and your service!
So don't become a victim of the recession - just don't take part!

Hosting Accounts to suit your budget

Due to the success of our small business hosting package, we have recently made all of our customers aware of the available web hosting options, we can host your website from only £50 per year, which also includes 8 email addresses, each with a mail box limit of 20mb.
The great thing about this is also the support you get, we can even help you configure outlook (always a pain) on your own computer to start sending and receiving mail through your new hosting account.
Should you have any technical questions, its as easy as picking up the phone (no on hold music) just a human being helping you. We are also now offering search engine optimisation to get your site found.
Watch this space for more...

We are doing our best now to ensure that they are kept up to date with our services, as well as expertise, with regular advice and tips from the studio. Plus additional services that might be useful.

Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to our blog. Expressive Design is a design studio based in Tyseley, birmingham. We have recently moved into new premises giving us more space to cope with increasing workload and an expanding business! It seems that more clients are coming to us who have either been paying too much for design services, or haven't been getting the service that they expected from other agencies or studios.
We have worked hard to ensure that we are here for our clients and with the facilities that we are offering at our new offices, we have a great reception and meeting rooms (for confidential discussions) and an open plan studio so that our clients can see what we do!
we also have an increasing number of existing clients who are taking advantage of other services that we are offering, including web design and hosting from just £50 per year for web and mail. We will be keeping our blog regularly updated with information about us and also tips that may help you or your business.
