Welcome to the family…
Ditto is an independent boutique branding consultancy and creative design agency based on a beautiful Victorian farm in the rolling Kent countryside. We work internationally, specialising in creating brand identities for ambitious entrepreneurs and small businesses. We're a family business - father and daughter, Derek and Hannah, and Hannah’s hubby and partner in crime, Dan. We’re your design crew and your business allies, and promise you a challenging and inspiring journey that you won’t look back from…
Hannah is an experienced brand consultant and creative director. She brings an inspiring energy to the table, along with the ability to find clarity amongst a challenging brief and the skill that’s required to read between the lines. Unafraid to push boundaries, she knows exactly which questions to ask in order to make you really, really think about your business. She has a discerning eye for design and an inherent ability to visualise the creative style that’ll have you, and your clients, falling in love with your business.
Dan is an incredibly talented and dedicated designer. Happiest behind the scenes (taking this photo was an act of torture), he works quietly, consistently and intentionally to create the most beautiful brand identities that have put Ditto on the map. He has a passion 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 our signature style and flair.
Derek is the founder of Ditto. Bringing with him the experience of a career spanning three decades in the design industry, he worked as a freelance graphic designer since graduating from Ravensbourne College before launching Ditto in 2003. His personal values of honesty, respect and hard work have shaped Ditto entirely. Derek is an exceptionally talented illustrator and a brilliant photographer and has recently launched our online shop, From The Oast, where you can browse and buy a selection of his work.
Nestled in the heart of the countryside
Our studio is an eighteenth century Oast house based on the stunning North Frith Farm – a 400 acre estate with woodland, farmland and lakes nestled amongst the rolling Kent countryside.
There’s something immersive and utterly transformative spending time at the farm. With plenty of space to roam, talk and ponder, it provides the ideal environment to step away from the everyday and see your business in a new light, revealing a world of possibility.
