The Crayon Dealer

I’m Gareth Robertson and I’m a graphic designer, a visual storyteller, content creator, podcaster and commercially creative businessman.

I founded Design Pit in 2012 after a career working at some of the best independent design studios across the Midlands. After some changes in our family lives, my wife and I decided to relocate our family to Salisbury in the summer of 2020. After successful 8 years in north Birmingham, Design Pit’s brand and reputation was strong enough to allow us to make the move but retain strong links with the region; and we still work as closely as ever with our Midlands clients albeit more remotely nowadays.

Since the move, Design Pit has gone from strength to strength, carrying on building and adding to a reputation for inspirational creativity and award-winning customer service. I’m incredibly proud of Design Pit and brands that we’ve built for clients over the years and look forward to growing our powerful graphic design portfolio from our new base on the south coast.

Meet the extended team…

Design Pit is an agile collaborative creative company. And over the years, we’ve built strong working relationships with creative professionals across the globe who help us service our clients to the highest standards.

John Shoots People

No genuinely, he does! But he tends to use a fancy digital camera these days. John is our go-to guy for amazingly composed, beautifully edited photographs that elevate designs to the next level. John is a keen “rugby-ist” and featured in a special edition episode of our podcast; listen here.

Richard Lloyd – Business Consultant and Exit Strategist

“Often creative thinkers can find their minds wandering when business talk gets serious. But Gareth is a better businessman than even he realises and you can see his ‘end goal focus’ in Design Pit’s client work. Looking great is one thing but design must deliver. We called it a ‘creative reality’ when we worked together’ a sales focussed approach to creativity.”
