“This site is very simple... no bells, no whistles.”

“Why?  Because I believe simplicity is the essence of clear and concise communication.

It’s important that your customers get your message, engage and act with nothing standing in the way. Nothing at all.

First Edition Design is an affordable Agency alternative without all the complex moving parts. I like it that way and you will too.

So take a look at our work and draw your own conclusions.

And get in touch if you need clarity and a fresh perspective.”

Focus on what is important


You might be starting up and not have considered your branding at all; your current branding might not reflect what your company does or simply be out-dated?

Defining your brand is the important first step.

First Edition Design

What are your outcomes?

A pivotal question.

It is not until you have a clear picture of your objectives that you can develop the best strategies to achieve them. Simple.

Who are your customers and what is the best way to reach them?

Self explainatory but can be a trick question. You may find your customers are not where you think they are.

What is your unique selling proposition?

It might be a feature, benefit, service, or you could be  gloves off and fighting it out on price.

If you don't have one you need to take another look.

Evaluate your competition

Look closely at what your competition is doing and just as importantly... what they are not.
