Brothers in arms...
Armed with Macbooks, graphics tablets, sketchpads and pencils, brothers Daniel (Dan) and Luke Crawford, trading as Crawford Designworks, draw on their vast wealth of combined design experience, across many creative disciplines, to offer an extensive range of professional design services.
Established in 2011, trading as Luke Crawford Design, Luke combined his graphic design, marketing and advertising background with his web and multi-media education to steadily build and grow the business over the next seven years.
With a solid foundation of loyal customers and following years of the ‘one day we should work together’ conversation, finally in early 2018, words were replaced by actions, when older brother Dan decided to leave his hectic lifestyle as a Design and Project Manager and bring his artistic, graphic and product design skills to the business.
In January 2019, after nine successful months establishing the next phase of the business together, Dan and Luke became an equal partnership and re-branded the business Crawford Designworks.
With a focus on excellent customer service Dan and Luke are proud to work closely with their clients, listening to their exacting needs to ensure they only provide design that works!
