Who we are
Hicksdesign is the creative partnership of Jon & Leigh Hicks, working with clients globally design since 2002 from our studio in Oxfordshire, UK.
We are most known for our logo work for Firefox, MailChimp and Shopify, but our skills cover a much broader spectrum of services and mediums. We prefer to call ourselves simply 'Graphic Designers', as that encompasses everything we enjoy doing. As well as our digital skills, we still enjoy the buzz of making something physical, whether it's with ink, paint or clay.
Web & Product Design
From low-fidelity wireframing and prototyping to a final coded design. We don't just hand off static designs, but enjoy working directly in the browser (♥ CSS) as much as with design tools such a Figma). We use can also setup complete sites in Statamic (our CMS of choice!) and work alongside front-end developers to provide a complete service.
From a single logomark to a full branding system. A brand new logo may not be the answer for you, we strongly believe in refining and updating existing logos to increase effectiveness without losing brand equity.
This is a speciality of ours, and we have worked with Skype, Spotify and Dyson (to name just a few). The process of reducing an idea to it's simplest, but recognisable form is joyous!
We both come from a traditional print publishing background, starting in the last days of paste up artwork.
Our only working rule is that we don't work through agencies, we prefer to communicate directly with clients.
