A Sydney based graphic design studio delivering design solutions for digital and print media.

We help you stand out from the crowd.

What we do

For over 20 years, Johnston Design has been creating outstanding graphic design solutions for digital and print media. We specialise in corporate identity, logos and branding, Government and corporate communications, websites, digital campaigns and event graphics, and partner with our independent experts when a project is task-specific. Our commitment and passion drives us from conception to delivery.

How we do it

We listen carefully to identify the key messages and overall ‘focus’ for the project, and ask questions to delve deeper into and better understand your strategy and tactical approach. We create designs that accurately reflect the key messaging, collaborating with you and involving you in the creative process. We project manage the entire process meticulously, ensuring quality control and delivery to your deadline.

The outcomes

Happy and satisfied clients, communications that serve and enhance key messaging. As we are a ‘boutique’ graphic design studio, we provide hands-on service, working one-on-one with the designer, so communication is always direct and focused, saving you time and ensuring we deliver to your deadline. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you, and will make every endeavour to ensure that you, too, become a happy, satisfied client.

Do you have a project you would like to discuss?

Our real estate agency just launched its new branding and we couldn't be any happier with the result, and our experience with Johnston Design. Heather took our old branding and transformed it into a modern version of its old self and we are thrilled with our “new look”. We continue to work with Heather and her team on a regular basis to roll out our marketing collateral.

I entrusted Heather with creating a new website for my business and I’m delighted that I did. Heather listened to what I wanted, gave me options to choose from, explained the process to me and translated my sometimes hazy instructions into exactly the type of website I wanted. The whole exercise was completed very efficiently and quickly. Recently I also asked Heather to update and simplify my letterhead. I couldn’t be happier with the final result. I thoroughly recommend Heather to anyone needing assistance with web or other graphic design.

Heather Johnston, the Principal of Johnston Design has always been extremely attentive to our design needs in spite of the small size of our business and the often imminent deadlines we have often imposed. We have worked together since 2001 to the extent that she is now an important member of the Mariner Boating family. Heather and her team are incredibly talented, easy to work with, easy to get a hold of – true professionals.

Johnston Design has been an absolute joy to work with. They collaborated with us to create our brand from the very beginning. They have responded immediately whenever we have had a question or problem and have been an amazing business partner and integral part of our team. As a result, I have recommended their services to many of our clients and have been thrilled with the work that they have done.
