Who We Are

We are a creative partnership based in Thatcham, near Newbury, West Berkshire. Dunston Graphics was founded by Matt Budd and Sharon Illsley back in 2009. Matt was working for a multi-national technology company as a web designer, while Sharon was working as a GIS & Graphics Manager for a large environmental consultancy. Feeling the need to spread our wings, we left our respective jobs and set up the company with the belief that our two disciplines would work well under one umbrella, with a cross-over of skills and qualifications complementing each other.

We have built up a healthy client base over the years and strongly believe that a small team is best placed to offer a personal service and ensure that our customers are given the best care and attention they deserve.

We have clients all over the UK, and also abroad, so location is not an obstacle for us.

Client Testimonials


Matt at Dunston Graphics is brilliant! Our old web site was tired and not performing well. Matt overhauled the whole site and brought us into the modern era with fresh ideas and formats. He is a very talented gentleman who clearly knows his stuff. I would have no hesitency in recommending Matt.

Mark Abbot, A R Twigg & Son Ltd.

"Very Professional!"

Dunston Graphics are a very professional and diligent organisation. They offer a very good service delivering GIS plans for our estate portfolio on time and without delay. They have a very pleasant attitude and in my dealings with them, no job has been beyond them.

Mark Heeley, Workman LLP

"Excellent Value"

Matt Budd from Dunston graphics is quite simply very talented. Not only that he is efficient, listens to what you want and also provides excellent value for money. Matt helped redesign our website for our driving school and is solely responsible for all the graphics, images and layout that you see on our new site.

Richard Evens, Ultimate Driving

"Don't Think Twice"

I cannot recommend Matt highly enough. He understood our brief really well and took care to familiarise himself with our business and values - I felt he really 'got' where we are coming from. This understanding made the whole process really easy. Don't think twice about looking elsewhere.
