Printers and Graphic Designers united in achieving excellence
Hoggett Creative is an established full service agency - offering creative graphic design for print, web and commercial photography projects from our based in Annan, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
Hello, I'm Simon Woolley founder of Hoggett Creative, welcome to my design agency. I've been working in graphic design since leaving school and became fully qualified to BA Hons level in 1997. Design and photography has always been my passion and it is as much today as when I first started.
After 10 years of working with award winning design agencies in Birmingham and Cheshire, I packed up my experience and headed north with my family. In 2008 Hoggett Creative was formed in our spare room - 8 years on and we said hello to our design and print studio in Annan, building our team of like-minded, highly skilled team members to service our expanding list of clients.
I am still very much involved in the business, being the person who meets with clients, sitting down to discuss ideas and the possibilities which they have available through our cross media design and production company, utilising our design, print and digital experience as well as our photography and video skills. David Smart, our designer, and myself work on the creative concepts, before presenting our ideas for client approval. Allowing me to keep an eye on what's going on to maintain the creativity, quality and attention to detail our design work and printing has become known for.
The biggest most enjoyable part of what we do is creating artwork, taking a brief and presenting our ideas, before producing the final artwork. There is no job too big or too small, for our clients – with quantities from 30 or 50 through to many thousands; from stationery, flyers and brochures through to user manuals and product packaging. We also produce wide-format printing for exhibition material, posters, PVC banners, roller banner and pop-up displays.
All printed with equipment from the world leaders in the print industry, using high quality professional papers to bespoke textured finishes, for local and national business. After substantial investment I am very proud of our in-house digital facilities, allowing us to be hands-on with a project from design through to completion – all under one roof. This helps us stand-out from other companies and that is why we do what we do.
When I'm not in a meeting or sitting in front of a Mac designing, I love nothing more than being behind a camera, delivering all your photographic solutions. From interior and exterior images of your hotel, through to product images for use on your online shopping website. Of course, the all-important finishing touches are added by our in-house retouching studio.
We also offer full website design and development using a user-friendly CMS system, our sites are fully responsive.
