Our story

Buttercross Creative is built from a passion and belief in the importance of craftsmanship in design. Little things add up – the details do matter. Our creative input and visual implementation can transform the profile of a business, whether it’s a brand identity, an event, printed literature or a website driven by content or function. There’s a story to tell from the personality and values that make each business different, and how you tell it to your potential customers is where we come in.

Based in Winchester, David and Liz bring their skills primarily to the heritage, arts, culture and luxury sectors. Our combined skills create a perfect blend of creative excellence, attention to detail and exceptional customer service. Well, we have been together since the 1990s, and working together since 2002!
