design for print, ebook and online specialist
Kavita Graphics has a reputation for flexible and fast turnaround from initial ideas to final artwork while maintaining the highest ethical, design & production standards.
Our customer base is built entirely on word of mouth recommendation over two decades. We never forget that each individual client is different so we work in as flexible a manner as possible to suit those individual needs.
We aim to build a mutually supportive relationship based on trust and communication with each client, no matter how large or small the project. You will work directly with your designer.
Kavita Graphics logo utilises Punjabi language and characters - the word "poetry". Our poetry is the art of making your message work visually as text and images together on a page - in practice - in print - and online.
Kavita Graphics have 25 years experience in print, pre-press, typsetting and design. We are straight-talking, honest and direct. We don't have 'account managers' or 'salespeople' - you will work directly with your designer.
Our prices continue to remain unbeatable and flexible for limited budgets.
... and our customers
Kavita Graphics are proud to have built our business entirely on 'word of mouth'. We know we depend on our customers as much as they depend upon us. We recognise that our reputation is only as good as our last piece of work. We are honoured to work with the customers we do and each is treated with the same importance - whether producing a local newsletter or campaigning material for an international non-governmental organisation (NGO).
Kavita Graphics clients include leading UK Charities, Intenational NGOs, specialist publishers & small businesses across Europe as well as leading professional, trade union & campaigning organisations, legal advice centres, local authority bodies, museums & arts organisations and many individual fine artists & photographers. We are very happy to provide contacts for independent recommendations - direct from our clients - about our work.
what our customers say ...
It has been my pleasure to work with Kavita Graphics for many years on a wide range of projects. I am pleased to give a glowing endorsement of their skills and work. Our designer has a really remarkably intuitive capacity to create designs and layouts appropriate for different publications, clients and situations which have customers queuing up with praise. Businesswise, our designer is unnervingly prompt, unswervingly efficient, wonderfully thoughtful and offers excellent pricing. My only wish is that you don’t steal him!
The team at Kavita have approached every job, whatever the size, with the utmost professionalism and dedication to detail. Their expert advice and guidance on how to produce the best possible results is always gratefully received. Their high ethical standards gel with our own company ethos, and the stunning results they achieve for us, without compromise, always amazes! Incredible talent and fast communication combined with a warm and friendly approach to the job at hand...
I have worked with Kavita Graphics for a number of years and have always been extremely happy with every aspect of their service, and very importantly, their expert advice and ability to interpret the design brief. Their work for Headway includes our quarterly magazine, campaign materials, booklets, leaflets and logo guidelines and every job is always undertaken in a very professional and extremely thorough manner, yet always maintaining a friendly approach. Their work is always produced to the highest quality standards and produced on time, despite some of the tight deadlines I ask them to work to.
