Helping you to

‘Brand’ your Brand

atom is an independent Ayrshire design and branding company. I have clients as far afield as Australia and South Africa, throughout the UK as well as more locally of course here in the South Ayrshire town of Prestwick, where I am based. At the core of my design company is honesty, creativity and passion. I have a strong skill set for both traditional and digital design.

Unlike some designers or design agencies, I don’t have a ‘house style’. I can adapt myself fluidly to any design style or branding brief, and I don’t take myself too seriously. Click arrows below for more on my stylish design approach.

What's the difference between a graphic designer and someone with a Mac and some up-to-date design software?

Ideas, experience and skill of execution!

Now please don’t get me wrong, I am not proclaiming that I am the greatest designer in the world, or a designer who produces ground-breaking and fashionable graphic design work. What I am saying though, is that my design work is robust, well executed and fit for the brief it was intended.

In a nutshell, I design commercially appropriate, relevant, well thought-out and cost-effective graphic design. Work that helps my clients to grow their business.

While they concentrate on the growth part, I concentrate on the design part. Simple.

 
 

Design and branding runs through my veins. Literally! Just ask my clients.

 

I think design through. I constantly refine. Sometimes a hunch is good, but if it needs solid research then I do that too.

 

I get under the skin of your business. My design work doesn't just scratch the surface. I refine, refine, refine.

 

Fundamentally, I think about your business first. Patting myself on the back comes way further down the design process after the project is complete and we are all happy.

Here is what my clients say about my design work...

Tom has worked closely with our team to develop an innovative new reporting system for our elderly and visually impaired customers. We are delighted with the results but, more importantly, so are our customers! Realist, effective human based design with no ego. Very refreshing.

Brian McGuire - MD, Visioncall

Unlike other design and branding companies in Scotland we have used in the past, we found atom to be good listeners. They took the time to understand our business and this helped us create what we believe to be an outstanding re-brand for our company.

Stuart Cameron - MD, Clicky Points

Following a chance meeting with Tom at a business event, we were extremely impressed with his ‘little book of logos’! Almost immediately we set up meetings for ATOM to do our rebranding. His logos are visual, descriptive and very clever! We have been delighted with all of the work that has been produced and he has taken the brief given and provided more than we could have hoped for. He also has a very personable manner and was able to work around our needs, regardless of the chaos!!

Wendy Pring - CEO KCP

We have been working with Tom on our new brand development and we are so thrilled with his professionalism, skill, attention to detail and ability to understand what we wanted (when we weren’t even sure!). Tom also works through the projects fast, without compromise to quality. Each stage has been handled carefully; we feel so confident in the outcome of the branding. Thank you Tom, you’ve been amazing to work with.

Peta Sollander - CEO Western Bloc

Tom instinctively knew what I needed to achieve from my new brand identity and ecommerce site. He knew what questions to ask and how to get the right answers. He has helped develop a brand identity for my start-up business which is now widely recognised throughout the nursery industry and is frequently commented upon by many of the market leaders as expertly produced and eye-catching. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone looking to develop their website and branding.
