FAQs – see if we’ve covered your query here

• Integrated digital/print projects • Brand development & curation • Infografix & complex data visual communication • Maps & wayfinding • Annual Reports • Books, magazines & catalogues • Reports & technical documents • Editorial, copywriting & features • Signage, displays, vechicle decals & promo products • Website CMS & eDMs • Production co-ordination & project management … are just some of MASTHEAD Design & Creative’s core competencies! If we are unable to handle it in-house, chances are, after 40 years in the business, we know someone who can (and we have a wide-spanning network of trusted business contacts too).

Some of the principles underpinning MASTHEAD Design & Creative’s work include • Complexity made clear – in visuals, words, data and presentation • Engaging and immersive audience experience • Luscious location mapping (we love maps!) • Clearly informative content & communications • Integrated and interactive project co-ordination • Collaboration and integration, vertically, laterally & geographically • Long-term relationships fostered for mutual benefit • Trusted integrity as a reliable provider with a proven track record.

With 40 years’ experience behind MASTHEAD Design & Creative, we have spanned many sectors, including • Hospitality & events • Transit & transport • Government (all levels) • Not-for-profits • Community organisations • Start-ups, Sole Traders & SMEs • Historical research • Art and Architecture • Building & construction • Engineering • Technology & ICT • Aeronautical • Marine • Wayfinding & mapping • Book publishing • International markets – to name but a few!

There’s quite a few ‘4s’ on this page so here’s 5 features of MASTHEAD Design & Creative’s USP:

1 OUT IN FRONT
At the risk of sounding like wankers* there’s been demonstrable numbers of instances over the decades where, with hindsight, it’s been shown that our concepts or our work have been developed and presented or delivered between two and eight years ahead of their time. (*It’s a calculated risk we’re prepared to run, and we’ll be covering subjects as diverse as the Falklands War, Garfield, Qantas rebranding and “Air Crash Investigations” to support this claim in forthcoming MUSINGS blog articles – stay tuned!)

2 THINK DIFFERENT
At MASTHEAD Design & Creative, we have an innate knack for extrapolating from and envisioning beyond the core elements of a brief to ask ‘What if?’ questions that challenge preconceptions and ‘limitations’ with a fresh approach – sometimes very 90-degrees ‘left field’! – which illuminates hitherto-unseen, not yet considered possibilities … we didn’t arrive at our ‘WOW!’ tagline without having heard it many, many times from clients and customers saying “Wow, I hadn’t thought of THAT!”

3 FUNCTIONAL AND FIT-FOR-PURPOSE
The foundation of almost all our design projects is in utility, functionality, practicality and longevity (supporting credibility, visibility and value-for-money) – if something doesn’t ‘work’ then it’s unlikely to register emotionally, deliver financially and risks diminishing or damaging a promise. (That’s why we always begin branding development in B&W – if a concept works in one-colour, grayscale and reverse, then it will work in full colour … but not necessarily the other way round.)

4 ENGAGE AND IMMERSE
Brands should be strong enough to be adaptable, playful and wear many outfits without dissolution of their recognition and core values; tweaks, twists and layers of meaning in logos that pass first glance unnoticed but leave a subliminal ‘hook’ prompt audience re-engagement. Similarly, at MASTHEAD Design & Creative we love maps for being luscious story-telling, immersive experiences of colour and fine detail – or instantly, compellingly and helpfully clear explanations of location, context and travel options: your customers and readers will thank you!

5 EXCEED EXPECTATIONS
In many respects, it’s sum of 1, 2, 3 and 4 above but, simply put, it’s what we always aim to do: it’s in our DNA.
