Web design and illustration manchester

I work with people in companies of all sizes. Providing design clients can be proud of, digital ideas that get attention and illustration as unique as they are.

It’s my passion to engage people with good design across all media, whether setting up a website that can be easily updated, providing an illustration commission, animation or a cross branded print  campaign with online marketing and SEO. JCU is more than just the final product, it’s a design service.

With over 18 years industry and design studio experience and a dedication to researching the latest design trends and web technology, it’s not just about creating a look and feel , but solving design problems.

Design is everywhere. Everywhere we look on an increasing number of  screens and  on signs of all sizes, each one seeking attention and engagement . JCU  understands the DNA of design communication and how to get you noticed. We do it with efficiency and impact for clients throughout the UK and overseas.

Website design and SEO

Websites I design and build are user friendly, easily maintainable and a practical tool for business, giving you more time to promote your content without getting caught up in technical micro-management . Don’t have a website, or not proud of the one you have?


Working in a variety of disciplines from cartoon style character illustration to detailed technical cutaways, digital and TV production work. All illustration commissions are original, bespoke and created by me, John Cooper.
