Justin DeSyllas: Print and brochure design

Justin's design career began in the early 90s with a company specialising in work for theatres and the arts. In 1997 he joined Synergy, a design agency that pioneered ethical design for the not-for-profit sector. While there, he worked on huge range of projects from magazines and annual reports to corporate identities and media campaigns. And, as one of their senior designers, led projects for clients as diverse as Channel 4 and Amnesty International. In 2004 he left Synergy and set up Frisbee Creative, establishing a number of collaborative working partnerships with specialist organisations such as Project 404 where he has worked on projects for the Dowans Hotel, Aberlour Visitors Association and the Scottish charity Paths For All

What our clients say about us


Karen Braithwaite. Aberlour Pharmacy Justin's work for Aberlour Pharmacy is very much appreciated! He turns projects around quickly , reflects the pharmacy's principles and values in the designs and the invoices are always smaller than I anticipate. Highly recommended! Brian Robinson. Ballindalloch Distillery After talking to a number of designers, Project 404 were chosen as they demonstrated they could interpret the brief in an imaginative and effective way. They have always been helpful and easy to talk to, making positive design and copy suggestions in support of our own ideas. When tasked with adding a further website to our portfolio, Tim ensured the look and feel, together with the desired integration, firmly met our needs. Since the sites were completed, Tim has been accessible and has made any changes needed quickly and accurately. Jennifer Kelly Marketing and Public Relations Manager Gordon Castle Scotland As a rural Scottish business, online awareness and a positive digital presence is imperative. We have worked with Tim for almost 10 years now – well before the walled garden restoration project even began – and he has designed five websites for us in this time ranging from our original Gordon Castle information website right though to our current Gordon Castle Scotland brand ecommerce platform. Always on the end of the phone and able to help – his support has been priceless. Ghillie Basan. Author and Broadcaster There are few people who put up with my technological incompetence - Tim is one of them. He is very patient and super diligent at helping me promote myself and my work in a clear and accessible way. I love my website and so do many people who look at it as they all ask me who did it!! Roger Knight. Director, Spey Fishery Board & The Spey Foundation The Spey Fishery Board and the Spey Foundation have been clients of Project 404 for many years. We have been delighted with the professionalism and the personal approach adopted by the company. It is also most comforting to know that they are always there to provide after sales service and advice whenever it is needed. We would have no hesitation in strongly recommending their services to others. Charlotte Gammon. Chilcott UK I cannot recommend Project 404 highly enough. They are an incredibly imaginative, caring and understanding team that works hard to understand the nature of a business and ensure that the website that they create fits both the needs of the business and those operating it. Ongoing maintenance and updating are also delivered with a level of care and attention to detail that we rely upon and really appreciate .  Our business would not be where it is today without their help.
