Don’t be fooled by our size, we do big things for big brands. Taking a focused, hands-on approach to every design and advertising brief.  And with no account managers or sales managers to stifle communication between client and creative, you can be assured your brand and brief is in safe hands.  Working tightly with our clients, Swan Advertising acts as an extension of your company, immersing itself in your product and understanding it’s competitive marketplace.

The relationship between client and graphic designer is very important to successful brand building, marketing and advertising. Clients need to ensure that their chosen designer fully understands the brief and core brand values. To supply the practical creativity of design, artwork and final print on budget and on time. This is the commitment undertaken by Swan Advertising and this is why Swan Advertising is our client’s first call, time and time again.

We are proud that many of our clients have been with us for over 20 years.

Since relocating to Perth from London in August 2002, Swan Advertising has enjoyed great success, servicing local small to medium- sized businesses with Graphic Design, Web Design, and Print.  We have also maintained many UK based clients who value their long-standing relationship with Swan Advertising regardless of geographical distance.

Swan Advertising is proud to consistently deliver an outstanding service to its clients, and holds a cherished reputation for a successful, timely, and client focussed service to a broad range of industrial sectors.

Swan Advertising endeavours to run a planet-friendly and sustainable business in all aspects of its practice. In 2010 we invested in a PV solar system, on an average day this is more than enough to power the design studio including its systems and also feed the grid with the left over power.  With printing, wherever possible, we specify stock sourced from sustainable forests, and being a home-based studio, we save on the daily commute by walking to work every day!

If you like what you see on this site and feel that Swan Advertising could be the right choice for your business, then please call or email, and I’ll be happy to assist your business with practical creativity.

What Our Clients Say


Many of our clients have been using Swan Advertising for over 20 years!

We have used Swan Advertising exclusively for the design of our brochures and all of our souvenir products, including calendars, magnets, stickers, stubby holders, photo booklets, postcards and coasters. All done promptly and with Dave personally delivering some from the printer to our carrier. Each and every design has been to the highest quality which is proven by their sales and reorders. We will continue to use Swan Advertising for all our design and printing needs.

The key reason we use Swan Advertising is that they understand our needs. From a phone call or a scribble on a scrap of paper they get it right every time.

Our relationship with Swan Advertising began 8 years ago when our business Concrete Logistics was established. As a new business we needed someone to assist us with all our advertising and promotional requirements. We were seeking someone that could promote our business in a way that was attractive to potential customers. We needed someone who had the ideas and the open mindedness to project Concrete Logistics into the market place and maximize our return on our investments.

Over the years Swan Advertising has managed all of our stationary requirements with design and printing, including the designed and construction our web site. Dave played a key role in designing, constructing and coordinating a display we were involved in at a recent mining expo. With Dave’s expertise he presented a display stand that was a standout at the expo with video imagery.

Swan Advertising’s contribution to our business has been tremendous. Dave’s influence on the marketing of our brand goes right to the heart of our business. Dave designed our company logo that we now promote and are well know by.

Over the past 8 years not only have we had a fantastic working relationship but I have personally got to know Dave and his lovely family. I have without hesitation recommended Swan Advertising to several of my other business associates in which they have found Dave to be a pleasure to work with and his quality of work is fantastic and cost effective. I would like to thank Swan Advertising for all their help and assistance over the years and look forward to continuing our friendship and our business relationship for many more years to come.

Overall, Dave has a knack for making what seems complex, become straightforward and the job just gets done. No fuss, and no wasted expense. He is dependable, fair, and multi-skilled to provide a small business like ours, with many solutions to our varied requirements.

A portion of our business is selling advertising space on our website, however many of our clients do not have the capability to provide their own artwork and many do not understand the nuances of online advertising. We decided the best solution was to offer our clients this service directly, however we do not do the artwork ourselves. Through Dave, of Swan Advertising, we are able to offer our clients an affordable flat rate for their job. We discuss the brief directly with our client and forward it all to Dave to decipher. Dave likes to provide us with a proof within 24 hours, and 99% of the time our clients never request a change! Dave is not only quick, but creative and accurate. Some of our clients have been so impressed that they have commissioned Dave for other jobs.

Another portion of our business is general IT consulting for some larger companies. When clients request web-design we also refer them to Swan Advertising. Over time, we have worked together to share numerous happy clients.

We also use Swan Advertising to assist us with the design and production of all our own business marketing materials, including logos, printed pamphlets, and printing. Rather than just take the briefs we provide, Dave knows that we appreciate his expert eye and guidance so sometimes the proof returns quite different to how we original requested but we are (almost) always thrilled! And if not, he is always happy to listen to our reasons, and rework until we are satisfied. We have also found that Dave can provide the most competitive rates on printing and he always knows the latest trends in materials and printing styles so we always send our print jobs to him too.
