The story so far...

Hello! I'm Callum Bates and I started Bates Design with the belief that my experience and genuine love for design can help your business grow.

I specialise in working with people and businesses who want to create and maintain a strong brand presence. My approach to this along with strategic design knowhow, helps me to create memorable, distinctive identities and media that will give your business a polished look and

feel for years to come.

Some notable international clients include the world's biggest youth charity - the YMCA, Nepenthe Hotel in Costa Rica, Stark Gym in Sweden and Europa Point Football Club in Gibraltar.

With over a decade of experience before starting Bates Design, I have gained the trust and experience necessary to ensure your business is in safe hands.

I am also fortunate to work alongside talented web designers and copywriters who can add

their wealth of knowledge to the cause of creating a brand that works for you.

I will work directly with you and your business to build a personal working relationship.

Less work, more personal...

  • I am from the East Midlands town of Boston in Lincolnshire - not many people realise we're here so I take great satisfaction in telling everyone we're the original Boston.

  • After 4 years of working as an in-house designer at the YMCA, I left to pursue my passion for traveling in January 2017, taking my laptop with me so I could continue to work remotely. During my travels I visited 11 countries over 8 months throughout the Caribbean and Central/South America.

  • I am a huge football fan, I go regularly to watch my beloved Boston United up and down the country for better or worse. I was always a keen player until I sustained a bad knee injury at the age of 23 which resulted in four knee operations, so now I am technically an 'armchair fan'.
