Martyn Swinscoe
freelance graphic designer


A few kind words from customers...

"The Design Depot (Martyn) has worked as creative input on many of our highly successful B2B and lobbying campaigns. He has a knack of hitting the brief spot on, producing sharp and persuasive designs which are young, fresh, inspiring, powerful and pragmatic. Good to work with and highly recommended."

Peter Woodall - MD   PRP Consulting

"Martyn has been working with us on our marketing and promotional material so closely and for so long that we consider him virtually a part of our in-house team. He is certainly as committed to our success and development as any CDA employee, and can be relied upon to keep us on our toes in terms of marketing strategy. Most importantly, we know we can rely on The Design Depot to deliver the goods - on time, on budget, and to the highest professional standards."

Ian Kershaw - Chairman   CDA Group Ltd

"The Design Depot often work in partnership with Redrock Design to complete many challenging projects. They have always delivered a great service and with fantastic marketing results! The attitude to all creative projects is motivated by Martyn whose commitment for our brands is always evident. We request regular results which always arrived on time and the communication is always fast and efficient enabling us to respond to client changes immediately. I would have no hesitation in recommending this dynamic service who will promise to be a breath of fresh air and will indeed deliver and prove to be so."

Steve Allcock - MD   Redrock Design

"Martyn Swinscoe and the Design Depot are different! They do what schools need - turn ideas around quickly and in the most rigorous and efficient manner. Our digital prospectus and our reading diaries are highly thought of by parents and by visitors to the school. Martyn is a busy man but finds time to ensure that our products are finished to the highest possible standard."

Simon Thompson - Head   John Clifford School

"In my role as a golf club secretary, I have found Martyn Swinscoe’s knowledge, enthusiasm and support both invaluable and inspirational. Not only has he created a dynamic and impactful promotional website for us, but – with his considerable marketing know-how – he has helped us effectively re-brand Chilwell Manor. The website and his eye-catching press adverts and leaflets have attracted a great deal of local interest and are having a significant impact on our membership targets. Highly recommended, full stop."

Denis Reynolds - Secretary   Chilwell Manor Golf Club

"It’s a real pleasure to deal with a designer who’s reliable, professional and instinctively knows what will and won’t work. Martyn is undoubtedly highly creative and has the knack of being able to think a bit ‘differently’. But, importantly, he also has the confidence and commonsense to cut through pretensions. By that I mean he completely understands the nuts and bolts of business. You can be sure that with him, creativity HAS to, and will, earn its corn!” 

Tony Gregg - MD   Tile Tec Ltd

"Working with The Design Depot has been like a breath of fresh air. Lively, creative and always thoroughly professional, they have made us think much more analytically about our targeting. They gave us exactly what we wanted - without drama, and with a lot of fun, confidence and panache. It's a pleasure dealing with such accomplished people and not having to pay silly money to get such high standards."

Fiona Vale - Marketing   Begin

"I have worked with Martyn Swinscoe for over 25 years now. It has been a pleasure to work with him and have always found him helpful, friendly and humorous. Martyn’s fresh and creative designs have always impressed and satisfied my many clients and helped to establish my reputation with them. He has maintained his high standards, consistently over many years, and provided that extra support when we’ve had to meet the tightest target dates. I have no hesitation in giving him the highest recommendation."

Claude Daly - MD   Claude Daly Associates

"Ramtech Electronics used Martyn to help with the design on sales literature projects for several of our products. He proves to be passionate and proactive and we were impressed with the ability to listen to and understand our brief. The designs produced were fresh, innovative and most importantly, achieved the result we were looking for."
