About Us

designdough team

Shaping Brands

We work with companies to share their story through impactful, meaningful design.

But what sets us apart is our team. designdough isn’t just about one person, every team member has a voice and is a stakeholder in the business. We’re all equally as passionate about our culture, our clients and delivering the best outcomes possible.

Saying that, we weren’t always a team. designdough had humble beginnings…

*cue emotional music*

It was 2006, the credit crunch was looming, there was a lack of design jobs and Joe, with only £800 in savings, had just signed for a mortgage. Sat in his pants next to the PC in his back bedroom, he knew it was make or break time. He (now clothed) started spending every waking moment walking the streets of Cardiff to get his name out. Slowly but surely, his relentless efforts paid off and the work started to trickle in. The rest is history…


Our Culture

We’ve always been super proud of our culture and attitude towards projects. We’re all unique in our own way, but we live and breathe the same values.
