Biscuit Press Design

Biscuit Press Design is a new venture by Dawn Reade, bringing together her graphic design, printmaking and art work.  Dawn and her husband, Joe own Island Bakery Organics Ltd , an organic and eco-friendly biscuit bakery in Tobermory on The Isle of Mull.

So that’s the biscuit connection.Dawn & Cookie Monster

Dawn has always enjoyed printmaking, with her favourite media being linocut & screenprint. Following an Intensive Foundation course in Graphic Design, Dawn has also been building up her computer design skills. Until now most of her design work has been just for fun, or to help out friends.

Whether Dawn’s work is art or design, most of it is designed for print, and so it goes to press! Hence Biscuit Press Design.

Have a look on this site to see some of  Dawn’s work.

I have been working with Dawn from Biscuit Press for the last 9 years both personally and professionally. 

On a personal level I have commissioned her for bespoke prints to mark some of my loved ones big Birthdays.  On the professional front, Dawn has come up with some amazing ideas on marketing material for our business.  She takes the time to fully understand the purpose of what we are trying to achieve and poses suggestions on how this message can be delivered.  Every time we work together her results exceed expectations and I am in awe of her creative flair.

Recently, I set up a new company, Identify, and as Dawn has got to know me well over the years my brief to her this time was a bit loose!  I said I wanted the new company to look and feel very different from the last, I wanted it to encapsulate my personality and what we are all about.  I had no preference to colours and no set idea re design.  Dawn then came back with a colour mix I would never have thought of but I loved it instantly and the design is very me…I love a venn diagram! 

If you are looking for any marketing collateral then I would highly recommend you speak to Dawn, you will never be disappointed.

We are a small SEN school in Birmingham and heard of Dawn through a personal contact. I approached her and asked if she would work on a new school prospectus. Dawn was more than happy to oblige, she listened to what we wanted to get across. Information was sent over to her, within a few days she had produced a prospectus we were really happy with.

A few years on we approached Dawn again to update the content. She was again so approachable and accommodating. Within two days the update version was emailed over to us. We asked for a couple of amendments which were actioned within the hour! I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough, she is fantastic at what she does, she listens, responds and communicates really effectively to ensure the whole experience from start to finish is a positive experience.
