The thing about YZ DESIGNS is that we love the work we do, in fact we class ourselves as the lucky ones in the fact we don’t hate going to work each day…I know, boring but true.

Our team work well together on all design requests and we make sure each request we get goes to the best suited designer on our team to get the best design solutions for you and your business.

We have been established since 1996 where we made our mark on the design world and have been going ever since.

Having spent time learning our trade along the way, we can assure you we have the skills and experience to advise and supply you with the best creative design solutions.

Why we love design…and Bristol!

We kind of think Bristol is cool! We have travelled the world but feel that we are happy to call Bristol our true home and we take great pride in our Bristol roots.

Born and bred in Brizzle, we were brought up to respect others and value our principles of hard work, decency and always being polite…mixed in with our creative team of passionate Bristolian designers, we think it creates a great company for which you can benefit from.

Design offices in Bristol

YZ DESIGNS is based in Yate, Bristol where we have out main office which benefits from having a printing facility which is why we can offer our clients affordable printing along with our creative design skills in both website design and graphic design.

Our core team consists of 6 designers who all work remotely from the different corners of Bristol…Portishead, Westbury and Yate to name but a few.

YZ DESIGNS find working remotely creates a better environment for our designers and also (THE IMPORTANT BIT) lowers our overheads, meaning you don’t have to pay for our offices before we even start to work on your designs.

Just think how much extra goes on your bill if a design agency has a plush office in central Bristol!!

About YZ DESIGNS offices

A brief history

Hi, I’m Mike Wyatt the owner of YZ DESIGNS since it started in 1996.

I started out as a professional footballer for Bristol City in the early 1990’s playing for the first team alongside some of Bristol City’s best known players such as Andy Cole, Jackie Jackinowski, Wayne AllisonLouis Carey and Matt Hewlett.

I left Bristol City to transfer to Bristol Rovers…one of the few players to have done so and yes, looking back it probably was not the smartest of moves to go to the rival club, but it was a fantastic experience. I also managed to play with some amazing players such as Marcus Stewart, Marcus Browning and Gareth Taylor.

 

From professional football to creative design!

After leaving professional football, I joined Bath City in the Conference league which meant I had to go back to college and study Graphic Design.

After graduating, I joined the Bristol Evening Post, working on print advertising mainly and exhibition graphics for 7 years. This was alongside me starting YZ DESIGNS in which it started out a part-time job.

This then took me to work at UWE Bristol (University of the South West of England) in their marketing dept for another 7 years, working on the design of prospectuses, signage, branding and all sorts of create design.

After leaving UWE, YZ DESIGNS became a full-time job to where it is today, with all of our staff living in Bristol which is the way we like it.

An all be it brief history of how YZ DESIGNS began!
