Splash Design Studio


Who are we?

Based in Macclesfield in the heart of Cheshire, our business was founded in 2002 by Lee Barlow, Philomen, and James Dhingra.

Some of us are based in the same office, and others based on different continents; a concept which has always worked well for us, endorsed by the fact that our current team has worked together for more than 9 years! We are driven by a passion for creating great design, intelligent marketing solutions, and providing unrivalled Customer Service.

It is to our credit that our company trumpet remains unblown by us, as clients and suppliers constantly refer new business our way. In fact we’ve never had to do any marketing of our own.

Talk to us and find out what makes us better than the rest!
