DiZign was established as a business in 1990, and incorporated in 1994. Initially based in Melbourne, the demand for our work increased rapidly on moving to Sydney, and our team expanded accordingly. We have thrived on the many changes in the industry, from the early days of paste-up, through to desktop publishing, ebooks and apps.
DiZign employs qualified designers and we have built and maintained a solid reputation for our attention to detail, dependability and excellence in providing innovative and persuasive design solutions for both print and digital media. We have grown due to word-of-mouth referrals, gaining a distinguished list of long-term clients. The skilled team at DiZign have a thorough understanding of design and print production, and our design experience is wide-ranging. We enjoy finding new solutions to creative challenges. We are expert in producing short and long documents such as books, newsletters, magazines and catalogues, as well as developing corporate identities, marketing collateral, signage, maps and technical illustrations, along with experience in many other design areas. During the last 7 years DiZign has added web design, ebooks and app development to our services.
DiZign has been a winner at the Australian Publishers Association Design Awards and has had many of our book designs commended and shortlisted over the years.
We are excited by new possibilities for our business and have various plans for future growth. We care about our business, the quality of our work and the trust of our clients.
Our standing as a design company is reflected in the list of our distinguished past and current clients from local and international organisations, some of whom are indicated here. Whether you are an existing or new client, we look forward to working with you on your next project.
