Transform your brand, raise your profile and attract more clients


Like many small and medium business owners, you may be overstretched with the day-to-day running of your business. You know that your brand is looking tired, you NEED to do some marketing and you SHOULD do social media but:

  • you haven’t got time to be bothered with it all
  • you don’t know where to start
  • you think it will be too expensive to outsource

The Art of Communication is here to help businesses like yours with logo design, branding and marketing design as your as-you-need-it outsourced design department.



Design from The Art of Communication is more than making something look pretty. It’s about making sense of content and creating a visual narrative for potential customers to help them navigate the information you want to impart. It’s all about increasing your business leads through an emotional desire to WANT your product or service rather than just NEED it, and this is initiated by strategic branding and graphic design with strong, clear messaging.

Attract the right customer with targeted messaging

raise your profile and attract more clients

Make every touchpoint count with strong branding

Who are you?
What do you sell?
Why should anyone buy from you instead of your competitors?

Without clarity on what you are offering and who your target audience is, or if your branding is inconsistent and dated, you aren’t likely to make the sales. We therefore need to transform your brand, raise your profile and attract more clients. In today’s crowded marketplace, it’s more important than ever to not only compete but stand out and get your business visible if you want the sales. The Art of Communication look at who you are and what you are offering with a brand audit, and once we’ve established that, we can create a brand strategy for getting you on track with your goals, decide on your key messaging and get it out there.

Let me introduce myself.

Hi, I’m Christine Hammacott of The Art of Communication.

If you’re looking for a passionate branding and graphic designer who will pull out all the stops to help you drive your business forward – then you’ve come to the right place.

The Art of Communication has built a reputation for marketing-led innovative creativity and great customer service. The business started in 2008 although experience in the industry is way longer (just don’t ask me how long — a girl never reveals her age!)

Through friendly, personal and approachable service, The Art of Communication helps organisations, business and individuals achieve their potential via strategic branding and powerful marketing materials. Whatever your requirement, you will get the best service and attention to detail from me.

Communication is at the very heart of everything I do — hence the name. It starts with LISTENING and CHALLENGING your current understanding of your business’ objectives and gaining insights into your company’s graphic design needs. Then together we turn that into a strategy for moving your business forward. So if you’re looking for thoughtful and thought-provoking branding and marketing design (without fluff or bullshit) then look no further.

Quality design, on time and on budget – every time

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.

Working with Christine from The Art of Communication has helped me develop my business without sending money unnecessarily.

Every company need a Chris!

"I've worked with Chris for a number of years and am delighted with her work. She has designed branding and marketing campaigns for several of my businesses, and set up web sites for me too. She has also designed personal stationary for both a wedding and a funeral. Her work is excellent, creative, great prices and with a quick turn around time. She is easy to work with and a good communicator. I totally recommend her services."

Chris has produced all my covers. My grandson and I take the photos but Chris does something to them in photoshop to bring them alive and turn them into vibrant covers.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Christine on setting up two new web sites for my company. She listened to our requirements and set up two of the best web sites we have ever had. She can accommodate change at very short notice and is full of creative ideas that have helped us immensely.
I would have no hesitation in recommending The Art of Communication to any new business owner.
