Accolade for local creative company

DGL Creative is a multi-award winning creative design company, focusing on graphic design, website development and all aspects of print.  Formed in 2012 by experienced designer David Laird, the company has already grown at a rapid pace, winning eight major awards including Best New Business at the 2013 Northamptonshire Business Awards and, more recently, received an honourable mention at the International Design Awards in Los Angeles for their ‘Tony Soprano’ artwork.

For Studio Manager, Emma McGinty, a consistent approach is key to the company’s success. The DGL team combines intelligence, strategy, technology and those essential sparks of creativity that help maintain a winning brand. Whether it is designing an advertising campaign for a big budget movie or printing some brochures for a local law firm, the aim is to provide gold standard customer service to every single client regardless of their requirements.  Based on Corby’s Old Village in a trendy converted loft studio, DGL Creative has clients as far as Asia and America and regularly collaborate with some of the best creatives in the world on various projects.

DGL Creative is proud to offer a truly amazing deal for all new businesses in the county.  Their business starter pack, displayed to the right, offers start-up companies everything they need to start, promote and manage their business venture. This is also a great package for existing businesses looking to re-brand and move their company forward in 2014 through to the New Year.
