Dhbs Marketing
Don't hide, be seen.

Marketing and design solutions that focus on getting you seen by the right people at the right time and in the right light.

From logos to signage, advertising to PR, and marketing material to marketing campaigns, dhbs (don't hide be seen) marketing is about making you look the part, act the part and get the part!

dhbs is my business name. I am an independent marketing consultant and designer, who has been marketing for two decades (and counting). From a start in marketing life with a Blue Chip FMCG, to international auctioneering sales and event marketing and advertising, I moved to support the growth of a small business (to a plc) and then to working with start-up organisations. I value business, I value people and I know that marketing is a very personal thing. So I listen.

I listen to what the real issues are, the real goals are and I look at what is reality. I recommend and develop campaigns and activities that are really needed and will be the most effective. I work to your budgets and your business plans.

I am a strategist. I am a planner. I am a communicator. I am a writer. I am a designer. I am an illustrator. I am a marketer.
