Derwentside Business Network needed to update its brand and also lose the perceived geographic restriction of Derwentside in its title. We prepared a brief seeking fresh ideas on our branding and sent it to several businesses. We wanted the brand to reflect the inclusive and fun aspects of DBN. We also wanted to retain DBN as a brand if possible. We received several proposals and brand concepts but it was John Barkess of JJ&J who most closely followed our brief and then adapted it to create a fresh and contemporary design that we are delighted with. The new brand identity perfectly encapsulates the values of DBN giving us a forward thinking design that is winning much praise. John is so easy to work with and an extremely talented and professional designer who understands how to translate a design brief into an engaging and striking design. Thank you John for taking the DBN brand to a new level and explaining every step of the design journey as it progressed.

JJ&J recently completed a significant body of work for one of our key entertainment clients. From the outset John was professional, astute and creative. John is a pleasure to work with, a good listener and doggedly determined when it comes to seeing a job through to the high standard we strive for. We’d have no hesitation in hiring JJ&J again. Highly recommended.

Gary Glozier, Design Director / TH_NK

Having worked with John for a number of years, we are never disappointed by the service he provides or the design ideas he produces. John approaches each project with the same level of professionalism, enthusiasm, commitment and creativity irrespective of the size of the job. He is also an extremely nice person to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

I approached JJ&J looking for help. I knew my logo and brand needed a lift, it was 5 years old, monochrome and old looking and I felt unenthused by my own companies look. I had no idea what I wanted or how to do it. Probably not an ideal client ! JJ&J were amazing and professional right from the start . I opted for the full rebrand; a beautifully fresh new logo, website, letterhead, business cards and an enhanced social media presence. The hits on my social media pages and email enquiries basically doubled once I released my new branding across all platforms. Enlisting the help and expertise of JJ&J was the best decision I ever made for my business. They exceeded all expectations and I can’t thank them enough as I have just recently won my first international contract. I really cant recommend them enough!
