Our Experience

We have over 40 years of design experience at Reds Advertising. I personally started in the printing industry in the graphic arts field and have been part of a number of paradigm shifts from process engraving to photo lithography, colour camera and retouching, electronic scanners, and DTP [Desk Top Publishing]. My principal role is now the Creative Director, a post which I have occupied for the last 13 years at REDS Advertising.

Our web designers have over 20 years’ experience in designing fully integrated websites incorporating the latest features to make your site the stand-out in your industry sector. Critically we ensure your potential clients easily find you on the web using the latest search engines optimisation techniques (SEO). Your website will attract high search volumes, the design of the website critical then in converting these ‘hits; into enquiries and sales.

 

How We Operate

It is important to explain our role – we are here to make your job easier, to allow you to concentrate on your business while we attend to the graphic design, printing, production and delivery of the end product. We have a deep understanding of each facet of the graphic design and printing and promotions industry. We know the individual skilled workers and firms on which we can rely and we orchestrate the overall process on your behalf and deliver the approved final product with minimum work on your part.

We do like to have a written brief, but obviously this is not always practical. We will meet with you to discuss the creative brief and the parameters that we should work within such as your corporate and marketing guidelines. At this meeting we will gain a full understanding of your key objectives, your products and services and your target market.

A quotation will be submitted and approved and typically an advance payment made before we proceed to implementation.

REDS will design a concept for your initial approval. Once tweaked to your satisfaction and provided it meets all of your objectives, we then implement the design into the final product whether this be a logo, business card, brochure, exhibition stand or packaging product.

Proofs will be submitted via email in the form of a pdf file. If the campaign warrants the expense of high resolution colour proofs (Sherpa proofs) REDS will supply them.

Once approved we will complete the design ready for printing. We send the files to our printers will supply us with either a pdf or digital plotter proofs for your approval.

Once approved, our committed delivery times apply. Our estimated delivery time is always stated on our quotations.
