Ray is the Creative Director of GD Associates along with fellow Director Paul Downes. Having started his career at an Oxford based design agency, involved with the fast paced world of editorial advertising, Ray moved on to become a Director at a Banbury based design agency who’s clients included Macmillan Publishers, Oxford University Press and Fiddes Payne.
Although they were both directors at separate design agencies, Ray and Paul decided to combine their creative experience and formed GD Associates.
For nearly 20 years GD have successfully maintained a growing client portfolio that ranges from small start-up businesses to nationally recognised companies. All enjoy the benefits of blue-chip service and welcome a fresh and innovative approach to their marketing needs.
Whatever clients want to achieve from their business, the solution will always lie in how they present themselves. Their logo, website and brochures talk to customers everyday, and GD are passionate about original and attractive design which can make a genuine difference to businesses.
Well versed in the latest technology and creative trends, GD are committed to helping drive their clients businesses forward. In a rapidly evolving world of technology and design trends it is crucial that GD add value to projects and offer solutions that place them ahead of the competition.
Ray understands the need to hit deadlines and the importance of finding practical solutions to clients problems. “Good communication is essential to understanding the philosophy and marketing aims of our clients business. We complement this by following a structured design process and providing a unique and creative approach.”
