creative project specialist

My name is Russ Babidge and I started Southbay Design over 10 years ago after 15 years as a Creative Director in a large agency to do great creative work at sensible cost but to the highest possible standards, oh and along the way I have picked up a few great creative friends that really are part of Southbay Design.

Below are  a selection of  projects that Southbay Design have worked on

We have helped re-brand and strengthen numerous clients

a team of people that keep costs low and creativity high

It's a  fact that any creative agency is only as good as it creative team, the price of these agencies can be a high one, and as a Creative Director for so many years, I have a clear vision of how important it is to get a creative project right from the ground up using a great creative team.

 

Here at Southbay Design - we do just that, we  keep costs low and creativity high by working transparently with other creatives, and you get no hidden charges just great work from those who love what they do, so before you get involved with a creative agency lets see if we can help.

My father John Babidge started in the business in the mid 1940's covering over 70 years in graphic design

Cow Gum, a scalpel and a bottle of Ronsonol lighter fluid

 - over 70 years in graphic design

My father John Babidge started work in the mid 1940's learning his trade as a hand lettering artist and eventually becoming an airbrush retouch craftsman. Cow Gum, a scalpel and a bottle of Ronsonol lighter fluid were the tools of the commercial artist.

 

Watching my at father work, I knew by 12 that's all I ever wanted to do, seeing him hand draw lettering and explain how to kern and master the art of typography, it is so different in today’s digital auto place world, yet I can still feel his influence 40 years on, and graphic excellence is still down to a good eye.
