Who we are...
Ditto is a Kent based branding and design agency run by father and daughter team, Derek and Hannah, and Hannah’s hubby and partner in crime, Dan. Hiring us is like becoming one of the family - we’ll celebrate with you, push you to be your best and work our socks off to give your business the brand it deserves. We’re your flag-waving supporters, cheer-er on-ers, your design crew and your business allies. We believe in hugs, not handshakes, and love to create brands that play to the strengths of the wonderful people we work with.
We’ve been working with ambitious business owners across the UK and internationally for the last twelve years, helping them to tell the story of their business through branding, websites and marketing material that attract their most profitable clients. We have an innate knack for capturing the essence of a business, finding clarity in a design brief and translating commercial goals into visual assets. Above all, we care deeply about giving your business the brand it deserves, and have huge respect for the investment you're making in hiring us. We promise you a fun, challenging and inspiring journey which you won't look back from.
We're honoured to say that our work has been featured in best-selling branding book, How To Style Your Brand
Having worked in the design and creative industry since graduating from Ravensbourne College, Derek has worked with some of the largest corporate entities around. Since launching Ditto in 2003, he has put his extensive design expertise and entrepreneurial approach to good use working with small businesses, bringing his wealth of experience to benefit our clients. Derek’s specialities include logo design, illustration and photography.
With over 11 years in the creative industry, Hannah is an inspirational and motivational creative director, mentor and brand storyteller. Her real passion lies in brand styling, and she excels in capturing the magic spark that lies within our clients’ businesses before working with the guys to transform her vision into a brand identity. Hannah offers one to one training, mentoring and brand consultancy for businesses who want to tap in to the Ditto magic; find out more here.
Dan joined Ditto right at the beginning, and his approach to creative design has helped shape the business to what it is today. While he cut his teeth in designing for print, his flair for brand design has put Ditto on the map. He has a passion (borderline obsession) for typography and hand lettering, and has a precision eye for colour and balance. The creativity and flair he brings to the table enables us to deliver exceptional brand designs with a trademark style.
