Design: If you are a brand new start-up, then you’ll need an identity for your business project. Graphic Violence will work with you to define that identity and create your logo and your branding. The design of your logo is crucial to everything that carries it, from your business card to your twitter avatar. Graphic Violence can design your look to work everywhere you need it to; website, stationery, marketing, Powerpoint slides. And every design is unique to your project.

Our website builds include a day of training showing you how to manage the content and upkeep of your website.
Print: Graphic Violence produces print for jobs of all scales from basic business stationery to web offset magazines. With our print-buying knowledge, we’ll make sure your business cards have a weight and quality that lends authority and your perfect bound journal looks sexy on the coffee table in its UV varnished cover. From postcards and flyers to pull-up posters and ballpoint pens, if it can be held still, we can print on it for you.
Copy: In the good old days, nothing got published without being written, edited and proofed by professionals. The internet has changed this and now it is quite possible for a business to spend money on a professional design only to populate the pages with poor copy. If you don’t know what a split infinitive is, or how to use apostrophes correctly, then you need the services of Graphic Violence.

We’ll look at your production workflow and design improvements to make it smoother and more efficient, and we can help you implement it too.
