“Darkwater are a professional team whose ideas
have helped us to achieve what we set out to do.
In a little over a year, we have gone from a little
known, yet respected, local company, to a cutting
edge, design and marketing lead company. We
set out to rebrand; and Darkwater have positioned
us exactly where we wanted to be.”

Design for print
We could talk forever about design for print but at the end Stationery
of the day, it's about experience and ours is extensive. Our
portfolio includes the tiny to the bizarre, from a simple disc Annual Reports
sticker to a huge billboard poster and everything in between.
Raw talent alone keeps our design fresh and we never work Exhibitions
to existing formats or reincarnate a previous theme. With Point of Purchase
Point of Sale
the Darkwater touch your brand is given unique character
and promise, setting you apart from the competition.
Now, we don't claim to print in-house but what we will
do is select the right printer for your job and oversee the
print and finishing processes to make sure they do our
design and your brand justice.
