It is hard to create amazing master pieces with blunt pencils, in the same way it is hard to create amazing websites without Photoshop.
Photoshop is the defacto application to be used in Graphic Design. There are alternatives but they just do not cut the mustard (in our opinion).
We ensure that we are working from the latest versions of Photoshop and enjoy all its benefits through our years of experience.
With this all said, having great tools doesn’t make you a great designer. It is important to add that our designers are awesome with pen and paper and not bad with blunt pencils either.
