About us

We love design. There's quite a lot more to good design than something just looking good – it needs to guide the eye so the right bits of your message are noticed by your target audience.

Graphic Design is the process of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space and image"—Wikipedia
There are three responses to a piece of design—yes, no and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for…"—Milton Glaser

Grafica by the Sea’s clients come from all walks of life and many different locations, but mostly Sussex and London. Some are artists, charities and sole traders, whilst others are SMEs and multi-nationals. The projects we’ve worked on come in all shapes and sizes too.

Our Work

Whether you're a start-up needing a whole new corporate identity, or are established and looking for a website refresh or to bring consistency to your marketing materials, less is often more. With our expert planning, your budget can go further, achieve more, and minimise waste. We've also gained a reputation for honouring some clients' request for absolute discretion.

If you think you might like to work with us, we'll happily meet you for an hour over a coffee to see how we can best save you time and exasperation. We're an approachable bunch who are easy to work with…*

*(except Brad. He's quite grumpy and hides behind his Mac a lot).

I consider Grafica by the Sea as one of my key business partnerships. Liz and Brad are knowledgeable, approachable, professional and responsive. Most of all they take the time to get to know you and understand what you are trying to achieve so that they can tailor their service specifically for you. Not all web and graphics designers are the same. Grafica by the Sea are great, you should try them, you won't be disappointed.
Sarah Harvey, Savvy Conversations
We are very happy with the results from Liz and Brad for our new start up venture. From the beginning we felt listened to and given the best advice regarding our brand, web presence and printing options for stationery. Both Liz and Brad are very approachable and knowledgable in their fields. Our business brand was born out of Grafica’s hard work and thinking outside the box attitude. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a web designer that offers a whole lot more.
Elizabeth Panter-Smith, Bespoke Mortgage Services
I've thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of working with Liz and Brad. They manage to be utterly professional, friendly and engaging whilst leading you through the technical requirements of building a new site. They took the time to really understand what I was trying to achieve; this meant that they were able to make suggestions that were totally in line with my vision, that I hadn't even thought of. Thank you.
Janet Webb, Janet Webb Consulting
Fantastic people to work with: knowledgable; reliable; professional; they really LISTEN to what you need; and are very reasonably priced. We would highly recommend.
