Our Values

At Design Cloud we have a set of six values that guide all the work we do…

Commitment

Commitment

We are committed to the work that we do. Every single piece of the design work we create not only reflects your brand, but us and our designers. Each member of the Design Cloud team takes hard work seriously and we are completely dedicated to our task of creating graphic design that will help your business grow. Our service is one of the most affordable out there but it means nothing if the work we produce is less than the highest quality. 

Our commitment means that we put just as much effort into helping your business as we would Design Cloud. We do get through design work in extraordinarily fast turnarounds, but that is only because of our team of amazingly talented designers, not because we rush through work. Our commitment also plays a big part in our success as that value goes hand-in-hand with productivity. This appreciation for the importance of productivity helps us to always reach deadlines for clients, which is a key part of the subscription plans we offer. Always completing work to a high standard for the deadlines needed is really important to us as a team!

 

Trust

Trust

This is not just a buzz word we decided to include because it looks good. We genuinely believe that trust between designer and client is the only way that successful design work is created. We understand that trust is earnt, and that’s why we do our absolute best to always be contactable and to take on board any constructive criticism so that we can achieve our aim of consistently sending over perfect designs that need no changes. We also work to build trust through always maintaining our honesty. At Design Cloud, we believe that honesty is key and so we use this value in everything we do. All of our services are transparent, we mean what we say and we will always deliver on our word. We don’t exaggerate facts or hide costs, our unlimited graphic design service really does do what it says on the tin! Trust from our clients is always really appreciated as it allows the designers some creative freedom which usually leads to some pretty spectacular things. 

Within the Design Cloud team, trust takes a big role in the way that we operate. We trust each member of the team and encourage communication so that we can all work better together and contribute to a happy workplace. 

Kindness

Kindness

Kindness is free and it’s powerful. Kindness gives our workplace a fantastic atmosphere where everyone can have fun and really enjoy the work they are doing. This is pretty crucial in such a creative industry, we believe that our team should always feel happy and that’s when the best design work is produced. When we have a new member on the Design Cloud team, we all believe that the existing colleagues should go above and beyond to welcome the newbie. This value extends to how we feel we should treat all of our customers. No question is ever silly, we are here to chat if you need help understanding which format will work, what a .PNG even is, or what you should include in your design brief. Every customer should always be treated with the same kindness and respect that we have in-house, this is a really core belief of us all at Design Cloud.

 

Personal Interest

Personal Interest

When we asked each member of our team to get involved in determining our company values, there was one thing that everyone said. We are part of your team. The team wants you to feel as though you really are gaining another member of your design team, because ultimately, you are. Our graphic designers are loyal to your brand and they want to see it grow. From the first day we begin working with a client, we are constantly looking to learn more about the brand and understand the client better, so that we can do the greatest design work for your company possible. We all appreciate getting to know our clients more so that we can envision your goals more clearly and therefore work in a more focused way towards it. 

Having a personal interest in the brands that we are helping is an important qualification for Design Cloud designers. The work we do goes beyond just ticking a task off a list, we actively prioritise making sure you are genuinely satisfied with the work you recieve.

 

Progression

Progression

The world of graphic design is constantly evolving because our overall tastes and styles change so often, so part of our job is to make sure we are adapting and keeping up with modern trends.  Contemporary, up-to-date graphic design is the foundation of what we do. Our devotion to continual development is the only way we can make sure that it remains this way. How do we do this? Each of our graphic designers keep an eye on the world of design on a daily basis. We have a constant conversation in-house about the various updates to accepted branding techniques, and the trends that we are seeing in the industry. By keeping this communication going, we are always looking for ways to update our own ways of working. Because of this, we are always ready to bring fresh ideas to the table when it comes to the design requests we receive.

Creativity

Creativity

Where would we be without creativity? It’s the driving force behind the entire graphic design industry and so it’s vital that as a team we make sure that we all encourage and value it. Each of our graphic designers are artists in their own right, and we all have a real love for everything creative. Without an appreciation for originality and imagination, our design work would do nothing to help push your business forward. It’s this commitment to keeping the creativity alive that helps us to design campaigns that stand out from your competitors and are genuinely enticing rather than just the run of the mill design work that saturates social platforms and websites alike in the current day.
