HWB Design (HWBD) has been in place for over 15 years as a design consultancy for traditional marketing and online clients. I have worked with clients and their projects throughout England, Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East.

But over 10 years earlier I started off as a paste-up 'monkey' with a large Bournemouth Advertising agency and moved through several of these during the big buy and sell expansion of marketing agencies in the mid 80's - eventually ending up in London for a short while.

I also set up one of the very first digital repro-capable design studios in Bournemouth - combining high-quality film separations and typesetting services to the growing number of small marketing and print agencies in Dorset and beyond. This connection with reprographics drew me over to print and exhibition work - running a busy heidelberg based print production department that incorporated CPT (computer to plate) and a full service design studio.

The late 80's then witnessed the print companies follow where the advertising agency had gone only a few years earlier.

But thrilling though 'Big Business' is - I preferred a closer more personal connection with customers which I had known for many years. So I set up HWBD pulling on the experience of a wide range of graphic design topics - including logo design, branding, corporate and sales literature - print, advertising, exhibition graphics, exhibition stands, signage and point-of-sale - also multimedia (Flash and Quicktime movies) and the new upcoming trend of website projects.

More recently this has evolved into supporting clients with their WordPress projects – ranging from template theme set up – to fully customised theme development.

On behalf of the DBA Screening Committee, I’d like to express our thanks for the fantastic result you have achieved with the recent upgrade to the website.

Together with Debbie’s input, the end result is yet another very professional, user-friendly, informative platform that now takes DBA to the next level as we prepare to meet the dramatic changes brought about by the deadly global pandemic.

The previous version of the site has drawn much acclaim from our members, the entrepreneurs that approach us for funding and our local associate Angel Groups and I am sure the latest release will be just as well received.

Hi Howard

I just wanted to a say a massive thank you for all your hard work (and patience) with the onsite VIP materials and Young Gastech brochure.  The finished materials looked fabulous and I’ll sent over a few pictures of them in all their printed glory once I’m in receipt of the official photographs

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your efforts since getting back from holiday.  I am so grateful for your help and guidance, having picked up the submission printed from Mick it looks really great.

Your patience is commendable, thank you for making a stressful time a little easier.

Nice.  That’ll doodle.
I’ll let you know if there are any changes, but I think that is all done and dusted.
Thanks again Howard, for a great job.
