about us

Hi there!
We're josh & diana.

We are The Design Den, freelance graphic designers, web gurus and marketing consultants based in Melbourne's beautiful Kew and on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne, Victoria. We specialise in branding, design and web development in Squarespace for small to medium sized businesses.


We've both run our own large agencies, however now have scaled it back to just us, allowing us to not only work together, but better help the clients we serve.

When the world started catching wind that we were venturing out and that we were both design / brand gurus combined with with phenomenal strategic marketing capabilities and creative online digital skills, the jobs started rolling in and we were thrown into setting up The Design Den, and haven't stopped since. We now run our own freelance graphic design, marketing and advertising show, know to you as The Design Den

Small business brand refresh, marketing consulting, local area campaigns, advertising flyers and media planning. We can reinvent the wheel, if that's what you're after or we can start small with a brochure or two or we can design a new logo and brand direction for your business. If you need down the track, we can work together on other needs to drive your business further. There is no job too big or small and we can help you with all your marketing, design and web needs. 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to give us a buzz. We look forward to helping you get your business up in lights soon.


We're here to help

what we can do for you



Our Services

for branding, design and websites. 


Are you looking for a brand refresh or website design and development? Flyers or promotional ideas? Maybe you have a marketing budget that you need to spend wisely to get a great return on your investment? With The Design Den, you'll be killing two birds with one stone. We can look after all your branding, graphic design, web, marketing and advertising needs through from creative development to final production, print and implementation. We pride ourselves on listening to what a client needs, taking in all that information, then getting creative and if you need, also putting together a marketing strategy and an advertising campaign to help build you business and brand. Whether it be on a very small scale with a local paper advertisement or flyer campaign or if you want to take things up a notch, TV commercials and billboards. Your business will be well looked after, all while providing excellent customer service (so we've been told).


We've had clients tell us that they first went to a larger agency that bled them for every last penny and, to the other extreme, clients who have had a friend-of-a-friend whip up a logo for them for a couple of hundred dollars (where things soon went pear-shaped). The Design Den provides personal, responsive, excellent service and high standards of work that you will be proud. Oh, and we won't send your small business broke in the process, either.


With over 30 years (combined) experience in graphic design, branding, advertising, marketing and online experience, we know a thing or two about making a brand look schmik, messages hitting their targets, and strategies to target different markets and industries. With one hand on our Mac and the other on the world's pulse, we know where your potential customers are lurking. The Design Den is here to save your design day!
