Engaging, witty, informative and easy on the eye…

But enough about me.

Velcrobelly is the creative design practice of David McClure.

The Velcrobelly philosophy is to create arresting visual design which works harmoniously with engaging written content – all presented in a cohesive, approachable design which informs, entertains and motivates the viewer.

What does that all mean?

Velcrobelly believe in creating design, layout and typographical solutions which complement and enhance your content – not interfere with or overshadow it.

Velcrobelly work in collaboration with you to create graphic design solutions which engage with your audience, inspire action and enrich brand identity.

If studio-quality creative graphic design delivered in a proven and personal service sounds good to you, please get in touch.

Creative graphic design for print

Our daily bread and butter. Brochures, posters, promotional literature, corporate stationery, advertising, annual reports, books and more…

If it involves ink on paper (or any surface, honestly), we can design it for you – and even help with the print management.

Logo design

Logo design and brand identity play a vital role representing the values of your business. Design can drastically alter audience perception and willingness to engage with your brand.

Whether you’re a start-up eager to create a strong visual foundation, or an established business looking to develop an existing brand – Velcrobelly can help you.

Illustration and image-making

Image-making is a fundamental part of the creative design process at Velcrobelly – it influences everything from colour schemes to composition.

Custom illustrated artwork can differentiate and individualise your brand, setting you apart in a marketplace crowded with conventional stock photography.

Based at The Biscuit Factory Studios

An artists’ studio space underneath Europe’s largest commercial art gallery – Velcrobelly’s studio is situated in the heart of Newcastle’s thriving Ouseburn Valley cultural quarter; and a short walk from Newcastle city centre.
