Great design delivers more than simply aesthetic appeal. Get it right and your business will enjoy greater trust and revenue. Let’s take a look at what this means in practice.
First impressions are instant
People form an instant impression based on the visual impact of something they see. The time this takes? Just one-tenth of a second. In this fleeting moment, a prospect will decide whether or not they are going to further engage with your messages and offer. Fail to capture their interest and you’ve lost them.

Our good friend and screen-print magician Jonny Akers in collaboration Lukas Wigflex recently launched an MF Doom Tribute Exhibition, hosted luckily for us, in our home, Twos Company Studios.
With such a strong lineup of artists and illustrators, we certainly felt the pressure to deliver, especially as we wanted to showcase a design with a graphical edge. We approached this like all our projects, taking time to craft a purpose and reasoning behind the design. Based on a quote from Dangerdoom’s ‘The Mask’.
“Is it much, too much to ask, not to hide behind the mask”.
Our design consists of a fully rendered 3D glass mask positioned in front of an illustration of the quote itself; this has the effect of displacing, distorting and hiding elements of the words. Now, the technical bit, after making the necessary preparation for printing including splitting layers etc. It was then screen-printed onto quality 350gsm skin touch black paper, using a solid layer of white ink, followed by 2 glow in the dark and 1 silver run, the result, a stunning visual metaphor.
