"For us, design has never been a style or a set of separate disciplines but a attitude of mind. A way of creatively solving problems that add value; aesthetic, cultural and commercial.”

Our approach

Design and good visual communication make a difference. It is the planned link between an organisation's values and its audience. We have developed graphic and 3D solutions, provided planning advice, manufacturing specifications and directed production from conception to completion. Our advice has helped many businesses communicate their corporate or brand values, enhance their architectural assets and infrastructure for the benefit of staff, their customers and their bottom line.

Our focus

We have always been interested in change, enhancing and improving what we come into contact with. Our fascination for the new has kept us in touch and feeds our curiosity, while our knowledge of the old has allowed us to learn from history and reflect on context. This wide-ranging experience has informed our project feedback.

Our evolution

We started a design business in 1976. This evolved into Total Image, a multidisciplinary practice that provided solutions for clients across a wide range of industry sectors. We won marketing and architectural awards, appeared on TV and radio and helped a client win the Queens Award for Industry. In 2007 we began collaborating with Monumental, a heritage industry focused collective of film makers, designers and illustrators founded by Aaron Watson. In 2016 Total Image merged with Monumental. Steve Keeling now provides a consultancy service for larger contracts plus continuing to work on his own personal commissions.
