MAD Ideas has worked with an array of clients across many market sectors to design hard-working, all singing and dancing publications and brochures. They’re an essential part of your marketing toolkit and working with us will ensure a great outcome.

We create publications including brochures, folders, programmes, newsletters and e-zines for local authorities, educational establishments and businesses. Once we’ve received your copy, we’ll review it and pull it all together, creating an easy-to-read layout and if you need it, arranging photography too. It’s a specialist skill and we’re pleased to share it so you can showcase what you do.

  • Stylish design that’s on brand
  • Accessibility aware
  • Distribution sorted

Sometimes you need something a little different. We are delighted to provide icons and illustrations, so you can pop them onto your marketing materials.

If your project needs that extra touch, we can design and develop characters which fit in with your style and audience. From booklets for children to professional instructional guides, our cartoons and characters will engage your viewers and add an element of fun.

They said the genius Einstein was MAD and here we are today, still talking about him. Do you want to make your event and marketing materials something people will talk about? Well, guess what… we can do that. We’ll create seriously snazzy looking backdrops, brochures, cards, give-aways, invites, leaflets, pop-up banners, and more to get you and your event noticed.

“There’s no one you-er than you”

Your logo and corporate identity are as unique as your fingerprint. So be different (but not so different that people think you’re a bit weird and you make small children cry). That’s not good. Talking of good, we create logos and build brands with personality. It’s what we’re good at. Quirky, classic, high-end to everything in between, we’ll capture your individuality. Wherever you may be today – if you’re in need of a new identity, brand refresh, or a professional suite of marketing materials to shake things up a bit, speak to us and we’ll be delighted to successfully communicate what makes you, you.

Everyone loves photos; we frame them, share them and giggle over them with friends. They really mean something and the right image can make a world of difference to your website or report.

I’ve earned my memories. Sometimes you have to go through strife to appreciate the moments that follow.” – Monkey Boy (AKA heavily bearded marine)
