I’m Carrie Dennison, owner of Press for Design. Based just outside Stanley, County Durham, I provide print design, graphic design and illustration services specifically for sole traders and small businesses. I like to provide a personal and friendly service, where my clients know that they are always welcome to get in touch about any aspect of their design work. I like to build a good working relationship with my clients to ensure that we both enjoy working with each other.

I am a firm believer in that the work you commission me to do will belong to you at the end of the process. That means the copyright of your designs belongs entirely to you and your business once I have designed them for you.

I began working professionally as a graphic designer in 1990 when I trained as a layout artist with a publishing company in Leicester. Back then all the design and layout work was done by hand using photothermographic equipment, scalpels, rulers and a lot of spray mount! I then worked as a graphic designer for small companies in north east England before setting up Press for Design in September 2011.

I am also an artist and printmaker, and as well as selling my artwork, I teach workshops in art, relief printing and illustration. More information and my art can be found at www.dendryad.co.uk

I am the illustrator of Graphiti – Creative Moments for You, a bite-sized activity book for grown-ups.

Let’s meet for a cuppa and talk about you and your business in order to create the perfect print design or logo for you. All my contact details are below, I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,
