The Art of Communication is a graphic design consultancy based in Southampton

Whether you are a start up needing a logo or an established business needing a brand refresh, marketing literature or an exhibition stand, The Art of Communication is here to provide effective design to get you where you want to be.

An effective graphic design solution is understanding the right message – and communicating it to the right people. And that’s what we do best!

Logos & Branding

Your brand should be at the heart of everything you do so making sure you get it right is important. We design logos that don’t just look stunning but that also convey what your business is about. We then develop brands that will help you get where you want your business to be.

Marketing Literature

Corporate literature comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all budgets. We base our design on marketing principles that ensure  your corporate literature not only looks good but delivers a message effectively to the target audience.

Packaging Design

We can help you take your packaging design from concept through to final production. Working closely with you and the packaging suppliers to understand the specific issues regarding your product, we devise solutions appropriate to the market and your budget.

Websites & Social Media

Your website is an important part of your marketing strategy. We create responsive WordPress web sites that show your brand in the best light and that you can update yourself if you want to. We can set up your social media platforms so that they are consistent and reflect your web site.

Exhibition Graphics

Whether it is a pull-up banner or a 3 x 4 exhibition system, The Art of Communication can create strong imagery to attract visitors to your stand from across the exhibition hall.

Book Design

The Art of Communication works with individuals wanting to Indie-Publish their work whether it is novel, providing a personal service to produce covers that reflect the genre and content of the book. We can also help with marketing material to promote your books.

Quality design, on time and on budget – every time

We provide a friendly, personal and approachable service to help organisations, business and individuals achieve their potential through powerful marketing materials. Whether it is a logo, a business card or large multiple page document our customers get the best service and attention to detail.

Listening hard is at the core of our graphic design. Fully understanding a brief isn’t something all designers seem to be able to do which is why results sometimes don’t achieve the response they should. But understanding a brief is one of our strong points and communication is at the heart of everything we do.

So if you’re looking for thoughtful and thought provoking graphic design then look no further.

The Art of Communication do everything in our power to ensure that our clients get great, reliable service and creative design solutions. We don’t charge silly prices — we base all our work, on an extremely competitive hourly rate and if a job only takes half an hour, we will only charge for half an hour. We want our clients to look on The Art of Communication as their ‘in-house design department’, without the overheads. But don’t just take our word for it!

Thanks to The Art of Communication for spending the time, trouble and talent that created a book cover that surpassed what I dreamed of, for laying out the book and a professional website.

We were keen to have a brand that was friendly yet professional and encompassed the idea of working in harmony. The logo and branding that has followed has really gone down well with suppliers and customers alike.

The Art of Communication have been a God Send to my business from creating a logo that competes with my competitors to packaging solutions that suited the budget. It's an ongoing process as the business develops and they don't just do the easiest option but really think things through.

Working with Start-Ups

As a start-up business you may be tempted to buy an online logo or use one of the well known budget printing company off the shelf ones but while this might be a short term fix, the long term effects can be detrimental. How would you feel giving out your business card only to be told by the prospective customer that they have one just the same from someone else? Or that the branding you are using is also being used by a company with a bad reputation?


The Art of Communication work with start-ups regularly, producing eye-catching logos and helping them to identify their USPs and position in the marketplace. Every business is different so we have several start-up packages which can include logos and brand development, stationery, website, e-shot templates and social media pages, to PowerPoint presentations and vehicle livery.
