"Before I started using Talking Drum, I used to spend hours trying to design my adverts. Now I just give Andy my spec and he gets on with it, always producing something to my liking. With Talking Drum's competitive rates and the fact it frees up more of my time, I am actually saving money. I would thoroughly recommend any business try Talking Drum."

James Ross Jewellers, Portslade.

Talking Drum is the creative front of Andy Whales. That's me. I founded Talking Drum in 2002 with the aim of providing agency quality design at an affordable price. I use my extensive experience and tricks of the trade to help small businesses get more from their marketing budget.

Talking Drum can provide: 

  • Information tools – brochures, leaflets, posters & booklets
  • Brand identity – logos, business cards & stationery
  • Advertising – press, directory, billboards & vehicle graphics
  • Promotion tools – point-of-sale, exhibitions, mailers & giveaways
  • Internal communications – newsletters, training packs & handbooks

My studio is wherever I have space to open my MacBook Pro laptop. Sometimes I create from my home in Shoreham-by-Sea, other times from a Hove coffee shop or even a client's office. With excellent technical skills and the latest software, I work quickly, efficiently and accurately. Talking Drum specialises in design for print, but I regularly collaborate with other talented local freelancers to offer support with: web design, PR, copy writing, photography, promotional products and video.

I can often be found at networking events in Brighton and Hove and I am a proud member of BNI Hove Albion and Hove Business Association. If you are interested in generating more business, please ask about attending a meeting as my guest.
