About Frankman

What makes us different

Our ethics

When businesses don’t take pride in their branding, they look unprofessional. Having a weak appearance or brand for your business may give clients the wrong impression, automatically turning away potential clients and losing you valuable business.

Frankman believes that everyone should have a business to match their passion, we have guided and helped many businesses to look professional and become successful. Giving them the business, they deserve to achieve their goals.

Combining passion, powerful marketing-led design along with a targeted focus creates a successful business.

Design and Marketing that Succeeds.

Established since 2005

Celebrating 15 years in Business in 2020, we are already making preparations for the celebrations of our 20th Anniversary in 2025.

Collectively Mark and Maggie have over 50 years design and marketing experience (doesn’t that make us sound old!).

Mark fondly remembers his first project for Frankman and getting started…

“I was commissioned to design some character illustrations for a company in Newton Abbot that made internal parts for fridges… They wanted the whole process to be managed professionally with a formal quote and proper invoices. Frankman was born and the rest is history.”
