The Art of Communication

branding experts & small business messaging  strategists

Welcome to The Art of Communication website.

Like many other small and medium business owners, you maybe overstretched with the day-to-day running of your business. You know that your brand is looking a little 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 SMEs — by providing branding, marketing strategies and implementation as your as-you-need-it outsourced design department. It’s an investment that won’t cost a fortune.

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

Don’t know the answers? 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 you want. In today’s crowded marketplace it’s more important than ever to not only compete but stand out and get your business out there.

Over time, your brand and marketing approach may have lost its way. There may be new opportunities, changes in your audience or competitors that can affect how your brand is perceived. You may need to adapt or change. Let The Art of Communication look at who you are and your offering, and once we’ve established that, we can decide on your key messaging and get it out there.

Make every touchpoint count with strong branding

Attract the right customers with targeted messaging

Creative problem solving

Design is more than just aesthetics. 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 business leads through an emotional desire to WANT your products or services rather than just NEED them, and this is initiated by impactful design with strong messaging.

About The Art of Communication


Hi I’m Christine Hammacott and I trade under the name of The Art of Communication.

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!

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 far longer. If you’re looking for a passionate designer who will pull out all the stops to help you drive your business forward – then give me a call.

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

Listening is at the core of what I do. 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 objectives and gaining insights into your company’s needs are among my strong points — communication is at the heart of everything. So if you’re looking for thoughtful and thought-provoking marketing design 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. Chris's understanding of production processes and how they impact on design means that the designs are always appropriate to the medium and she finds innovative ways of achieving results to fit the budget. Every company need a Chris!

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.
