How we
got here

A deliberately different setup.

Founding partners Joanne Somerville and Duncan Kerr formed Design Eclectic in 2000. They wanted a different kind of marketing agency deliberately choosing not to have in-house designers or programmers.

Instead they built a team of talented creative specialists giving them the freedom to work outside traditional agency restraints.

How it

Pay for creativity not overheads.

Committed to providing exceptional creativity at a fair and reasonable price our set-up gives our clients the best of both worlds.

With a diverse range of talent and expertise our team is always able to deliver continually fresh creativity and originality. And by working outside agency norms we can be incredibly flexible on deadlines when required.

How do
we do it

Flexible, cost-effective marketing services.

Marketing services are provided on a project, ad hoc consultancy or ongoing basis where we act as an out-sourced marketing resource.

As a multi-discipline creative team we deliver a full marketing consultancy service including audits, planning and strategic advice as well as a vast range of graphic design and web services ranging from leaflets and brochures to reports, websites, infographics, white papers and logo design.

We're obsessed with providing the best ROI for our clients so we offer a choice of review and reporting services for all marketing campaigns we deliver.

Working from small rural studios near Newbury, Berkshire our setup  enables us to focus on what we believe is important, which is the very best in innovative marketing and creative graphic design that delivers real results, combined with fast turnaround times and precision project management. Even better, without all those normal agency overheads all you're paying for is our time and expertise!


We are a partnership agency with a small and dedicated team, all experts in our many chosen fields, spanning not just the UK but further afield as well.

Still lead by our original founding partners,Joanne Somerville and Duncan Kerr, both are as passionate today about providing the highest levels of creativity combined with value for money as they were all those years ago when they set off on this adventure (just with a few more grey hairs)!



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 23 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 energy, enthusiasm and attention to detail that we did at the outset.



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!
