Inklblott Design & Advertising Solutions focuses on brand building – including logo design, stationary, flyers, brochures, annual reports, packaging and CD design as well as signage. They have a passion for designing unique and compelling creative work, while understanding the client’s needs, goals and budget. They manage the entire creative process from concept, design, pre-press, print (if required) and delivery.
How did your business start?
Having worked for various agencies and corporate companies, I (Lisa Reuben) realised there was a need for a personal touch in the design process, and I wanted to have clear, honest and ongoing communication with my clients, which is sometimes lost in the hierarchy of larger agencies.
Why did you choose this area to set up shop?
Faerie Glen offers just the right amount of personal work/life balance. I am just a short distance to most of my current and potential target market (clients), not far from the highway and close enough to home and schools to make my life and business as comfortable as possible.
How did you find your premises?
When we purchased the premises, my husband worked in an office park just down the road. We realised this was a good place for business growth and a good quality lifestyle as there are many offices in and around the residential area.
Why are they ideally suited to your business?
The design studio is situated in the quiet neighbourhood of Faerie Glen, which is easily accessible as it’s close to Solomon Mahlangu road. We like to work in an environment that is soothing and tranquil so that we are able to conceptualise and develop designs which help tell the “story” in each unique design which we create.
Inkblott Design is conveniently and centrally located between two popular shopping centres, Olympus Village and Glen Village – we are therefore located close to restaurants and retails stores.
What is your shop footprint?
Being a graphic design studio, we do not readily receive walk-ins and work mainly by appointment only.
Do you have any expansion plans?
We don’t have any expansion plans right now, however we would consider relocating to a larger premises within a 5km radius should the need arise.
We are currently expanding our online offering as well, and our amazing portfolio is available online 24/7.
What’s your most popular item/service?
Our brand building packages and website packages are our most popular as they cater for a wide audience which can be tailor-made according to each client’s specific requirements and budget.
