Wise Words

From Our Founder

“If you are going bother to promote your business, there is no point putting something out there that makes you look unprofessional. Customers want to feel they can trust a business before outlaying their hard-earned cash. Promotions that have been poorly written and/or designed give the impression that a business is either a fly-by-night or has no attention to quality. My passion is to help small business owners avoid falling into this trap by providing effective solutions at realistic prices.”

about me…..the founder

Deb Winfield

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had two loves: art and writing. I liked horses back then too but there’s no space for one of those here in the city!

I studied journalism but being a journo was not for me so I changed tack and became a graphic designer. I’ve worked both in Australia and the UK for publishing and advertising companies and over that 27 years, I became aware of a huge need for a design studio that focuses on great communication. That’s my passion—communication—getting the words right, so they tell the right story to the right people then using smart text layout and design so it looks good and can be understood!

The Layout Place was born in 2015.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want a business brochure but don’t know where to start.

You start by speaking to us. We will discuss your business and your goals and work out what will work best for you. We can write the text. We can choose the images. We then design it. AND we organise the printing for you too!

Why should I use a designer when I can use Canva?

You don’t know what you don’t know. You might think your artwork looks THE BEST but because you are not a professional graphic designer, the public will be able to tell that your promotion is DIY and that creates a level of mistrust about your professionalism.

Do you do social media?

Yes. We have 2 packages which help you to plan and execute your social media posts more easily. We don’t do the posting for you but having your posts all ready, in the correct formats, makes keeping up with it easy…and we help you with the content as well!

How much does it cost?

Every business has different needs. We do have a rough guide for pricing which can give you an idea of how much to budget for but we can not give definite pricing until we have met for your free Creative Briefing. Our quotes clearly define the pricing, schedule of works and our terms and conditions so you are fully aware of our processes before we start working together.
