"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.”
Design and good visual communication make a difference. It is the planned link between an organisation's values and its audience. We develop graphic and architectural solutions, provide planning advice, manufacturing specifications and direct projects from conception to completion. Our advice has helped many businesses communicate their corporate or brand values, enhanced their architectural assets and infrastructure for the benefit of staff, their customers and their bottom line.
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.
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 creative practice founded by Aaron Watson, and in 2016 Steve Keeling became Design Director and Partner. Steve now provides a design and business consultancy service for larger contracts in parallel to his own design practice KeelingWatson.
