We are Kern & Bond

Based in the city of Leicester, we specialise in branding and logo design, print design and online social media content. We have over 8 years’ experience, both in freelance design and in a studio environment. We have worked with a variety of clients over the years, from start-ups to individuals to small businesses and charities.

What sets us apart from all the other designers out there?

We work with you to develop your brand, print design or online material. The process involves you all the way through, so you get exactly what you want at the end of the process. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, everything has to be perfect before sending the final files to you or to your printers. Although we work with businesses big and small, you will be treated exactly the same, you get a face-to-face consultation to decide the brief and scope of the project, and we only work on one to two projects at a time, so we will be dedicated to completing your project on time, on budget and to the quality required.

 We also have payment plans available for start-up businesses that aim to split the cost of creating a brand, creating advertising material or creating online content into easy monthly payments. Get in touch with us to discuss your plans and ideas and we'll arrange this for you!
