Vision people are real people, each with professional skill and each with interests that reach beyond work. We are a close team, many of us having worked (and socialised) together for many years.

We adopt a consultative and measured approach to the communication process, preferring to become a close marketing partner with our clients for the long term. More than a conventional design agency, we problem solve through collaboration, creating strategy-led solutions. We do not rely on the success of one-off campaigns but adopt a more measured view of the total communication process, believing that brand equity is a significant factor to be enhanced and protected at all times and that design is only a vehicle to impart a message more effectively. 

Thinking. That’s where we start. Thinking means taking a look at the competition; conducting internal brand audits; asking questions; researching and developing underlying brand strategies. It is just as important as the visual creative that follows and it’s what sets Vision apart from others.

Defining. Our process-driven development of a new brand, annual report or any marketing collateral is based upon wider considerations of business strategy or market position so that the right solutions are created in perspective.

Creating. Bringing thought and strategy together with the right expression demands experience, discipline and attention to detail, driven by our motivation to create outstanding creative solutions for our clients.
