A little about de Faria Dean design

I am a creative art director and graphic designer with over 25 years’ experience working in design and marketing agencies across Yorkshire. I’ve designed and created new brand identities and many marketing campaigns for large and small, national and international brands. I’ve also picked up some awards along the way, as well as learning a few things about good design too.

From my studio in South Milford (a friendly village between York and Leeds), I bring my experience to support small and medium sized businesses that are looking for good design that works hard. All without the costs of a design agency.

All the work shown on this website has been designed solely by me for de Faria Dean design clients. However, if you’d like to see what I’ve been up to over my many years in the design world, you can download my personal portfolio that shows just some of the national campaigns that I’ve worked on, by clicking the button below.

I specialise in leaflets, brochures and annual reports, direct mail and door-drops, and designs for websites. But get in touch if your business needs something different – we can chat about creating a design tailored for you.

Do you need quality graphic design, quick, cheap and without the hassle of sorting the print? 

Business Design Essentials could be what you’re looking for.
