Your destination for graphic design and website development

There’s so much more to design than simply looking good. Investing in great design gets you noticed. It helps you sell more products, book more services, attract more clients and gain more fans. All the things that add up to business success.

We’re Rich and Karen – directors of Maple Rock Design. Located in the heart of the vibrant town of Cheltenham, we’ve provided affordable graphic and web design services for 20 years. We love showing local businesses what they can achieve with great design – and we can help you, too. From clever and intuitive websites to creative and innovative graphic design, we’ve got you covered.

We get it: Great design is nothing without application. We don’t just make things look nice – we make them work well. With over 30 years of combined experience in both graphic design and web design, we have both the know-how and the commercial expertise that turn great design into great results.

We care: Each project starts by getting to know you, your audience and your business. You’ll find no standard templates or cookie cutter responses here – just hardworking design and friendly, personal service that helps you achieve your goals.

Brilliant service from Maple Rock once again. They've given me a brand new web site which is already attracting comments on how good and modern it looks. They worked at a pace that fitted in with me and my timescales and I'm really pleased with the end result!

The Team

No Chinese whispers here – our clients deal directly with us. It’s an approach that’s allowed us to build effective, long-standing relationships with our clients – some of whom have been working with us for over 15 years!

Also a keen photographer with an eye for design, layout and typography so is more than capable of working with traditional forms of design. If it is print you are after he will be happy to discuss the best production methods available to you.
