Thanks for dropping by!

We're Black Spiral, and we're serious about being different.
This isn't just about leaflets, logos and WordPress, this is about making great design work for you, no matter the nature of your project or the size of your budget.

Creative Passion

We're never short of ideas, creativity or inspiration but for us the real kick is to ensure that creativity translates into results with real impact.

Professional Design

We've got the skills, know-how and drive to ensure the execution more than lives up to the idea. Oh, and we NEVER cut corners.

Personal Service

We're not stuffy or distant. We're flexible, trustworthy and 100% committed to working with you as part of your team not just as the hired help.

Take a look at what we do...

Our Team

Well we say team... to be honest its just one person lurking behind all this. So...why not get to know me a little better?

Black Spiral Team

Hi I'm James!

I'm the lurker behind Black Spiral. I'm a self taught designer, illustrator, web developer and budding motion graphics artist with a creative streak a mile wide. I've spent too much time in tourism circles so I'm used to putting myself in the visitor/user or customer's shoes and I'm a big fan of top notch creativity for everyone no matter the budget.
