Logos and branding
First impressions count. The instant you see a logo you make a judgment based on our experiences and exposure to advertising.
At 6274 we enable you take control of that process for your organisation. From the creation of a new branding with associated materials, to updating and sharpening of an existing logo, we have the experience to help. We’ve branded individuals, SMEs and even towns. Branding is not just about the logo, it extends to copy style, photography, layout, and customer service too.
6274 Public Art offers a free consultation service to Local Councils, Urban Regeneration Companies, Planning or Construction firms to assist with their public art projects.
Once we establish the nature of the project we will put forward a proposal which will involve consultation with the local community if required and ultimately result in brand new art installation somewhere within the public realm.
We will work with each client to advise on best practice print and installation solutions as well as advising on which areas will create the most impact.
The final result will be an eye-catching artwork which will add value to the local area while fitting within budgets and time scales.

Signage and interpretive design
6274 has grown into a leading supplier of information signage, such as interpretive lecterns and totems. We work with country parks, government agencies, museums and libraries to help bring heritage and history alive, with conventional signs that can last years in the toughest climates, through to cutting edge Augmented Reality content via smartphones.
Design for print
In the age of the internet, there’s still a place for the smell of fresh ink on paper. Design for print is a unique skill, and still a vital and cost effective way for businesses to communicate with their customers.
From business cards to brochures, and leaflets to books we can make your business look amazing. Our service covers copywriting and image sourcing, to take you through the complete process from concept to delivery.
Every business or organisation needs a web presence. At 6274 we guide you through the minefield of options, to design and build a website suited to your needs, now and in the future.
Our experience includes content managed sites you can update yourself, through to bespoke shopping and booking systems. A website should not only reflect your business, but can also help you run it, and it goes without saying that it is an essential extension to your brand. Poorly executed sites can damage your company and the prospects of future work, hence we value continued relationships with our web clients, most of whom take advantage of our full suite of services.
From our bases in Ayrshire, Scotland and Gdynia in northern Poland we provide a full range of web design technologies.

At 6274 we take great care in the print management of your job, ensuring that our designs are reproduced to the highest standards.
Our wide range of suppliers and experience mean that we can print almost anything, and handle the tightest of deadlines.
Our offering covers traditional litho printing, digital, and large format exhibitions and displays. We are also happy to offer a print only service where required.
