who are Atomic anyway?
Atomic Design was launched in December 1999 and set out to provide companies and organisations with the following distinctive hallmarks:
- Provide a very high level of creative input and fresh concepts
- Deliver a wide range of quality marketing services from advertising / branding to emerging technologies including Internet and interactive media
- Always ensure we offer a better more cost effective service than our competitors
- Maintain client satisfaction at all times
Atomic has grown from strength to strength and now provides an all encompassing dedicated service meeting the needs of clients and organisations within the UK and overseas.
We believe it is vital to build constructive lasting relationships with our clients. Because of these forged partnerships and ongoing relationships, our portfolio contains a variety of projects from a number of UK and overseas markets. From industrial, pharmaceutical, financial, travel, leisure and retail sectors, all our partners have found our services more cost effective, more creative and ultimately more rewarding.
The Atomic culture allows creative to be pushed to the limit by creating an open environment from which our team can experiment with new design ideas. We believe in cultivating strengths and driving ambitions through our highly qualified and experienced team.
What our clients say….
“I want to tell you that I've been completely impressed with Atomic from start to finish and I'm really, really happy I chose to work with you on this. Catherine has been tremendous and is very, very talented. I'm going to recommend Atomic widely around IKEA because it can be difficult for us to find graphics design vendors that we feel comfortable working with. (However, I might wait a little while on that so that my newsletter stands out on its own for a few months... ;)”
Head of Communications North America
“Although it was the first time I worked with Atomic Design, I found their level of professionalism and quality of work very high in addition to being very approachable. After our first contact, they have already laid the foundations of our project (corporate newsletters) while I sourced any required information. They even provided a selection of copywriters too choose from who worked efficiently with our schedule. During the artwork stages, work progressed quickly since we always kept in touch and all ideas and changes were reflected on the work - evidence that the client came first. Any time I needed a question answered or change made, all I had to do was drop a quick email and they responded quickly. Their design skills and quality of service impressed me. It was fresh and dynamic and coming from a graphics background I knew that they understood all requirements needed to complete any type of production. Overall, they are very fast and efficient and I am looking forward to creating a stronger partnership with them in the future.”
General Electric Consumer Finance
“Whatever project comes up, whatever the deadline, I know I can send a quick e-mail brief to Atomic, elaborate for a couple of minutes over the phone, and the creative will be put underway immediately.
Any variant on the creative produced (and sometimes we may ask for quite a few) are done without a murmur and turned around fast.
Overall, it’s a fast, efficient and flexible service.
And on top of that, it comes for a fixed monthly fee, so I know exactly where I am up to for budgeting purposes.
This is a real partnership that works well for both Atomic and ourselves.”

David Lewis Centre
Marketing and Communications Manager
“Atomic Design designed our corporate brochure and were a delight to work with throughout the duration of the project. The staff are all very friendly, had great ideas and provided an excellent service. We have already started working on new projects with Atomic and are confident that they will continue to help us to achieve a consistent and professional image and brand for the future.”
Bridge Insurance Brokers Limited
Marketing and Personal Relations Manager
“By having a retainer we are able to work in a fluid way with Atomic Design – exchanging ideas and concepts on a variety of projects, whether they come to fruition or not. It allows us to work to tight deadlines and have small jobs (i.e. CD burnt, images reformatted) completed immediately without a wait for budget sign off. We are also able to use Atomic for design assistance with presentations and meetings, jobs which, without a retainer, would be completed to a lower standard in house.
Overall we are very happy with the retainer relationship and feel that for a company which works to tight deadlines and needs a range of design materials from interactive presentations to exhibition stands and corporate literature, it is a very cost effective and time efficient way to work.”
