Our Company

Our Company Decades of Experience!

Design Eclectic was formed as a partnership in 2001 byJoanne Somerville ​​​​​​​and ​​​​​​​Duncan Kerr​​​​​​​ who wanted to set up a different kind of design and marketing agency.

We deliberately chose not to have in-house designers or programmers, instead we have a well-established team of creative specialists who prefer to work outside traditional agency restraints and who've worked very successfully together for more years than we'd like to admit!

 

Our Mission

Our Mission To be different!

From inception we've been determined to provide an approachable, flexible and cost-effective design and marketing service.

We're committed to providing value for money and our proven set-up gives our clients the best of both worlds with continually fresh creativity and originality, combined with unbelievable turnaround times and precision project management at a fair and reasonable price.

Joanne Somerville

Joanne Somerville Managing Partner

With years of practical experience, both client and agency, Joanne runs the show at Design Eclectic working closely with both the creative team and project managers.

Nearly 20 years on she remains as committed (or some might say as bossy as ever) to ensuring we fully understand and deliver to client requirements, doing so with the same level of enthusiasm and attention to detail that we did at the outset.

Talk to Joanne on 01635 278388 or email her here.

 

Duncan Kerr

Duncan Kerr Creative Partner

Duncan also worked in both client and agency roles in a long graphic design career giving him the insight and experience to lead our creative team here at Design Eclectic.

As your typical perfectionist graphic designer his 'red pen' on proofs is legendary with our creatives but the positive of that pain point for them is that our clients can be sure that when they receive a proof it has passed his rigorous quality control checks!
