We are design, media and social marketing specialists, dedicated to providing excellent service and advice to our clients helping to develop strong branding concepts and marketing strategies to enhance business success.
It all began in 2007, when we became established as a family firm. With the collaboration of a qualified and experienced graphic designer and photography, film and video producer (with two national video competition awards to his name), we decided to team up and utilise our skills to help other businesses, both locally and nationally.
Where we are now
Pix and Mix have recently expanded to become partnership of Gareth Holsgrove Associates. Gareth was a co-founder of Pix and Mix and is a world-class Consultant in medical and dental education. (Please visit Gareth Holsgrove’s website for more information).
Since our expansion, we now have another two qualified graphic designers and a film and video producer in our team. You can find out all about them by clicking on the photos on the right.
Whether you are wanting to completely re-brand your business, need some stationery designing, a video producing or even just some great marketing advice and tips, make Pix and Mix your first choice.
How does it work?
Initially, we will discuss your thoughts and ideas, collating colour schemes, images and content. All we ask from you is for a small deposit in order for us to begin the design process. We will then create draft artwork for your approval. At this stage, please feel free to adjust any elements to suit, or you can pop in for a chat and discuss the design with us. Once you are satisfied and our work is approved we will then send you the finished product.
