A close knit team with some pretty firm ideas about what makes good design great
We like to keep things simple. We don’t do design trends, but we do do graphic design that works. Digitalisation is changing the way we all communicate, so we embrace new technologies; that way our clients can rely on us to advise on the best method to communicate their message as well as the most effective visual approach.
Our highly-experienced team are a creative bunch with plenty to say and a willingness to listen. We all believe in jargon-free straight talking. We recognise the importance of clear lines of communication so when you work with us you talk directly to the designer who is handling the job.
Now we have a team of skilled and dedicated staff who combine design, marketing, strategy and project management. This merging of roles ensures our designs look good, communicate effectively and come in on time and in budget.
With over 25 years’ experience working in Malaysia and London, Lim has a degree in Graphic Information Design, his work features in design magazines, and he is a member of the Chartered Society of Designers.
Lim set up nim design in 1996 initially operating from his front room. Within two years he had moved the growing business into an old bank building in the heart of Harrow on the Hill. The company name is derived from Lim’s childhood nick name and keeps him connected with his folks back in Malaysia.
When asked what his best work to date is; his answer was simply ‘I’m still striving to achieve it’. He went on to add that he is proud of forming close relationships with both clients and professional partners, so that the best design solution can be achieved.
His rebranding work for luxury sofa manufacturer Parker & Farr has breathed new life to the brand; his design for an Advocacy toolkit for Plan International has been launched during the Global Education First Initiative in Washington, advocating for the rights to an education; and his annual report strategic design work has helped numerous organisations to endorse their impact and solid financial positions.
