About Us

Downie Design started trading in 2010. Since then our client base has grown and so has the team.

The business is led by Emily Downie and comprised of freelance designers (Canberra and Sydney based). This enables us to stay agile, flexible and bring the best professionals together for the specific job at hand. It also helps keep our overheads down and our prices reasonable.

Our office is in Dickson (ACT) – we rent a patch of space from the wonderful folk at Threesides Marketing and love crashing their staff parties.

We also have a friendly office-dog who can be available for client meetings upon request. Contact us to line one up.

Our approach

We will assist you to make informed, pragmatic decisions about your design requirements. We never upsize a solution – we want what’s best and most appropriate for your business or organisation.

We avoid industry lingo, and work in a collaborative style with you and your team, aiming to keep the process as hassle-free for you as humanly possible.
