We are PortCreative, we create graphic design, photography, illustration, animation, web and video.

Hello, here is our blog.

We write about the work we have done, with more in-depth case studies, as well as looking at other designers’ work that we like. Also a little bit about what we get up to outside of work.

Our logo is very simple and undertstated, but you may have noticed a pair of seagulls hovering over the type. Why are they there?

The Wizarding World of graphic design

The graphic art of the Harry Potter films can be attributed to MinaLima. It is is their small, uncompromised details that the true magic of Harry Potter can be found.

Dunsbury Park: Paint it perfect!

Five great reasons…

We’re not bunking off any time soon, and if we do – you know where we live.

You don’t know us, but you know our work

We’ve said it before and we’ll no doubt say it again – it’s because our design makes a difference.
