From start up businesses to well established companies looking to rebrand, our design team can help bring your ideas to life.


Business cards, letterheads, compliment slips, leaflets, flyers, posters, brochures, menus, banners, exhibitions… We do it all! Whatever you need, we do.


Want your social channels to stand out? We can produce bespoke graphics you will be proud to post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.


If you’re looking for an online presence to showcase your products or services, Creative By Time can design and build websites to suit your businesses needs.


From commercial shoots to corporate portraits, our in-house photographers have the experience and creative eye to get the very best quality from every photo.


…We can handle that for you. After all, we did say we’re a full service agency didn’t we? We can organise and deliver your printing, ensuring it arrives on time and is finished to a high standard.


    "We are a very small school with a limited budget and we were not sure we could afford the design costs for our re-branding as there are some very high profile clients in Mike’s portfolio. He was very understanding and gave us an affordable rate with lots of design options and produced everything in good time. Above all, he made us feel valued and we are extremely pleased with the end result. I am very pleased to recommend Creative By Time."

    "Mike is an integral member of the Cloudspotting family. It’s so great to have a design agency who understands more than a brief but also our culture and message to always deliver exceptional quality and meeting our (sometimes) pressurising deadline demands. Creative, versatile and prompt... We don’t know how they do it but we are so proud to say that they are “our designers"."
