The Core TA Team

At TA Design we are proud of our reputation for top quality creativity.

We work hard, to give our clients the very best thought, design, copy - whether the finished items are catalogues, brochures, mail packs, website skins or emails. But we also know that your work place must also be a fun place, so we are lucky to have a team of people who are so nice and supportive, as well as talented. It makes all the difference when we want feedback on a creative concept, when we're working together to meet a deadline, or when we're kicking back and having a leisurely lunch in the pub!

Tony Adams (Founder)

Tony set up TA Design in 1993 and quickly built an impressive client list with a talented team. Tony started his career with Freemans, where his work included responsibility for advertising, direct mail as well as producing the very first specialogues seen in Britain. (We’re pretty sure he came up with the name.)

He may call it ‘colouring in’ but the creative work of the company he founded continues to be at the cutting edge of the industry, applying the latest techniques and best practice. Although he’s stepped back from the day-to-day, Tony remains passionate about the added value that exceptional catalogue design can bring to any business.
