Hi, I’m Nick, Director
of Cartmell Design Ltd. It is important to me to be personally involved

in a project along every step of the way. I am a designer so I have a

keen eye for detail;

I look for it in everything I do. For me, only the best possible service

is good enough.

Cartmell Design Ltd are members of these professional organisations and follow their industry codes of conduct.

We're More Than Just Designers!


Our extensive knowledge of the food and beverage industry means that we can offer guidance on legislation and labelling in different countries. We can provide you with all the nutritional labelling information you need for your product, with translations if required.


To help develop your product to be the best, we offer food sensory reporting.

We can also set up focus groups to provide qualitative analysis at a later stage.


We work with only the best food stylists and photographers to provide top quality images of your product for both packaging and media purposes. Our Home Economist will create some recipes for inclusion on the packaging or on your website/social media sites.


Through CAD 3D modelling, we can help you visualise your product by making sample prototypes. This will give guidance on how the final product will look. It will also help with the layout of images and written material that the packaging requires.


All our clients have their own project manager whom they can call upon at any time.

We want to work with you to see your product evolve from the initial consultation and design phase, through to the distribution and placement on major supermarket shelves.
