We care about our clients. We don't just do design. We are Notorious.

What is Notorious?

While our passion is for design, in reality we’re a hybrid between vision and business consultancy. Our specialism is to give your idea thought, to package it and present and refine it, so you have the best chance of reaching a global audience. We care about your results, so we commit to work with our clients to really meet and exceed their needs. We can help you develop advertising campaigns, develop a distinctive brand, reach out through social networks, and of course develop an effective, memorable, web presence.



How we spend our time





Web Design




We’re the silent partner

These days, it’s not enough to have a great idea. You have to leverage contemporary technologies to fight for attention in an information-rich world. At Notorious Design we take on your idea front and centre. We struggle with you to give it the best identity and the best start, so you can focus on what is important: building your project, developing your business.
