Designcrew Hastings East Sussex

Danny Grando Creative Director



    We believe agencies don't need to be big to come up with award-winning ideas. We are proud of our small agency values, our 35 years design experience and our track record of helping our clients stand out from the crowd.

    Founder and Creative Director Daniel Grando, set up Designcrew with a desire to deliver truly creative, bold, and affordable design solutions outside of the big London agencies, having worked in them many years himself.

    What we do

    It starts with an idea.
    An idea of something different, something that’s going to work and something that will get noticed.
    A reflection of who you are and how you want to be seen.

    Built on a solid foundation of knowledge and client understanding, we are a small but ambitious team delivering intelligent, creative solutions, backed up by our expert strategic thinking.

    We pride ourself in effective collaboration with our clients, working collectively while dedicating our experience and time to each new project. Our clients are always valued, no matter their size and our ethos runs through all we do. Our track record shows successful commissions for major brand-name manufacturers, service industries, public bodies and charity organisations.

    Our experience confirms our belief that “good design means good communications” and “good communication means good business”.



    Brand identity

    A successful brand is the most important element to making your
    business successful.

    By listening and researching your company and your market sector we get to work creating a fresh brand identity that will ensure you stand out from your competetors.

    We work closely with you to ensure every detail of your logo is on the right track to success.

    Corporate literature

    Corporate literature represents what you do and who you are.

    You will want to show you do it well. It’s an opportunity to inform,
    educate and sell yourself, so getting the tone right both in design and content is important. We will ensure your literature reflects your core values to showcase you at your very best.

    Advertising campaigns

    If you’re thinking about advertising, we'll get you noticed.

    We create effective and clever advertising campaigns to get your
    message out there and across a variety of media.

    What would you aspect from an award-winning creative design

    Exhibitions & Display

    For many businesses, exhibitions are vital in getting your brand or
    product seen within your industry and targeting the right audience.

    We understand exhibitions, with a vast amount of experience in
    designing and producing displays, banners, direct marketing literature, brochures and merchandise.


    A photograph can speak a thousand words, that's why we believe in good photography. We don't believe in using tired, replicated images in designs - a photo should mean something to you if you have chosen to use it.

    If we cant find the image we will design the image and with our bank of photographers we get it done. Its as simple as that!


    We do love illustrations.

    There is something powerful in them that can conjure nostalgia. Having started out my career 35 years ago when illustration was pretty much the only way to design, I'd like to say its in my blood.

    Bid documents & Reports

    Whether you are pitching for new business or gathering reports and results, effective presentation of materials is essential. You will want to show off your hard work to the high standard it deserves.

    We understand the importance of brand continuity and strive to deliver your corporate documents in line with your business branding and values.

    Print production

    We have worked with our suppliers who are all ISO9001, ISO124001 and FSC accredited for many years and have built up a strong relationship, which means we have a wealth of buying experience and can offer our client exceptional expertise and support for your print requirements.

    Website design & Build

    The online face of your brand. Some might argue the most important face. It has the ability to reach people around the world so its important it represents you, is simple, easy to navigate and looks good.

    Our team are experienced in delivering unique web designs for a range of clients.


    Got a product you want to get noticed? We are experienced at designing practical, creative, bold packaging for a wide range of products in varied sectors.


    Good PR can transform a business.

    Promoting your brand through PR can strengthen your existing
    reputation or help create one. It can get people talking about your start up or stop people talking about a business disaster. In essence PR should be used to get you noticed for the right reasons.

    For PR briefs we work with Lisa Grando, with over seven years
    experience working for a top London agency. She has worked on a vast variety of consumer, corporate and investment clients including Post Office, Moneysupermarket, NatWest, The Share Centre, London & Capital.

    And yes she also happens to be my daughter!


    We have strong relationships with trusted printers who we've been working with for years. Together we ensure all print work is to a high standard, saving you the time and effort.
