Local design company celebrates a decade of creativity

This year, a Salisbury based design, branding, print and digital company is celebrating a decade of creativity.

Founded in 2012 by Gareth Robertson, Design Pit has worked with hundreds of clients over its 10 years in business, creating bespoke print, digital and web assets for many satisfied customers.

To mark his 10th anniversary in business, Gareth has created a limited-edition, high-end book charting his business journey – and he’s selling copies to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.

The charity is close to Gareth’s heart, as his mother has grappled with the disease for more than a decade.

Speaking to Love Salisbury, Gareth said, “I’ve always supported this charity who lead the way with research into finding a cure for this terrible disease. They also offer support to those who suffer from it. I’m pretty sure that I’ve raised around £12k to £15k to date and I plan to do more in the future. This book is one of my charity-driven projects and all proceeds will go to Parkinson’s UK to help fund more research that will lead to a cure.”

Gareth relocated Design Pit from the Midlands to Salisbury in the South West in 2020 and continues to work with businesses around the country, Europe and the USA.

He offers graphic design, branding and content creation, with marketing support and consultancy as a new addition to the mix.

Over the past 10 years, Gareth has introduced an ecommerce arm to the business, with Print Pit, and developed and launched his own podcast, Pod Pit.

Hannah Montgomery MCIM, founder of Golddust Marketing, also commented, “Design Pit provide a fantastic service where clients can pass design tasks over with a brief and they take it on from there. It saves time, effort and money – freeing up business owners to focus on what they do best.”
