TwoSheds is a graphic design agency based in Saffron Walden, just a 15-minute drive from Cambridge on the Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire border. It’s led by designer and creative director Jon Allan.

TwoSheds doesn’t just solve design problems, we offer strategic design input and manage design projects from concept to delivery. That includes designing for print and the web, creating corporate logos and rebrands, and producing exhibition stands and presentation designs. Anything, in fact, that will help make your product or service more attractive to customers.

We tend to appeal to SMEs and large-scale organisations, and revel in complex multi-media design briefs. Working in partnership with many talented copywriters, photographers and developers, we’re small yet adaptable: nimble enough to turn around projects fast, yet experienced enough to assemble and manage teams of specialists should the occasion demand.

With no shortage of graphic designers and design agencies in Essex and surrounding counties, it’s a huge point of pride that many of our clients have stayed with us for years. And who are they? Well, they range from municipal authorities to science parks, primary schools to universities, and book publishers to boutique hotels.

We’d love to add you to that list.

“It has been my pleasure to work with Jon over a number of years. I very much value the direct relationship we have with Jon; he understands our brand, our marketing objectives and always produces work that exceeds expectations.

Having worked in the past with large and well respected agencies where account handlers change frequently; having a direct relationship with Jon avoids the frustration of dealing with account handlers who change frequently, explaining why work produced is not quite on message and spending time re briefing the same company for new projects.

Jon is credible, creative, always positive, responsible and completely unflappable! He delivers consistently strong design very often at short notice, to tight deadlines and always on budget.”

“I have been working with Jon for over 5 years on various projects ranging from brand and creative to digital design.

Jon’s approach to our branding has been based on research, analysis and a strong understanding of our industry which is reflected in strong branding with unique selling points.

Jon provides a unique designer-client relationship which enables me and my team to shape and clearly define concepts right from the outset. His ability to translate our vision into modern, clean and engaging designs has helped us immensely on our journey to become a global market leader.”

Campbell Associates Ltd commissioned TwoSheds to assist in a rebranding process for our company. The process started with a consultation meeting where we discussed our business and the direction we wished to take it. 

The rebranding has proved to be a big success in that it has given consistency in everything we do. It has given the company something strong to get behind to help us grow our business. The company has shown strong growth partly due to the relaunch and rebranding and the exercise has proven to be an excellent investment. 

TwoSheds have delivered everything we have planned on time in a professional manner and always with a first class attention to design. We have continued to work with them on an ongoing basis for these reasons and would not hesitate to recommend their services.
