I do not pretend to be a large outfit which has large overheads that have to be passed on to my clients. I work in a modest chalet-studio with the most up to date equipment needed to run a design studio.

I offer a professional design for print, brand identity, display graphics, advertising and web design service, which my clients find cost-effective and although I supply quotations before commencing any work, I will always spend more time on a project if required - to get it right!

We use the services of independent copywriters, photographers, illustrators and reliable printers who offer us the most competitive rates and service.


What MY clients say

When we opened The Beowulf Brewing Company in 1997, having Mark undertake all the design was a no-brainer. He took our scatty ideas and source materials, he listened and he crafted an enduring, immediate, flexible and recognisable logo. He always has the patience and skill to make our ideas work...or the patience and tact to convince us of better ones.

Phil Bennett
Beowulf Brewing Company

You never kept us waiting and always returned our messages. We were also impressed with the speed with which you finished our project. You did exactly as promised and delivered way ahead of schedule. We are well aware that there are design companies out there that may well have added a couple of noughts to the bill you presented us with!

Ian Fuller
Capers Catering Services

The partnership between Mark and ourselves over the years has been a creative journey led by Mark who always listens to our brief and patiently implements the inevitable changes until we achieve a brochure of which we can both be proud.

Irene Moon
Birmingham Bach Choir

I am sure if we had given the same brief to a city agency, the cost would have been several times higher and the end result no better.

Nicki Oliver
Jakarna Wildlife Trust

We’ve teamed up with Mark on a wide range of projects for private and public sector clients alike. His creative flair, ability to second guess what you’re after and professional, friendly manner is why we always keep coming back to Blast Design.

The Squire book

This impeccably-researched, profusely illustrated book was initiated by four Squire owners: Peter Neumark, Roy Palmer, John Southward and Jonathan Turner. They commissioned award-winning motoring historian Jonathan Wood, whose association with the marque date from 1964, to set down its definitive history. In the resulting book Wood candidly recounts the story of the Squire, the charismatic, costly British sports car produced between 1934 and 1936.
