I am a freelance graphic designer with over twenty years’ experience working in graphic design: logo design & visual identity, visual communication, brand development, advertising & marketing, arts & publicity, design for print & web and website design.
As a conscientious design professional, I like to develop close client relationships, which consistently help deliver successful creative solutions.
Reliable and attentive with good communication and liaison skills, I’m confident taking on projects at all stages from initial concept through to completed job.
Some clients like to take a hands-on detailed approach while others prefer less involvement in the design process. Either way, we can work together and while I'll take the lead in the creative process, I’ll ensure that you always remain in control of the project and the budget. My aim is to create design solutions that work for your audience - to deliver successful design with visual impact.
I offer a customised graphic design service with a high level of care and attention to detail. I will ensure your project a safe passage from concept to completion.
Successful design conveys core values and promotes communication with simplicity and clarity.
There are subtle but important differences between designing for print and designing for digital viewing. I’m trained and experienced in both disciplines with a track record of implementing successful solutions for both.
Modern websites need to look good and be easy to navigate on any device from a mobile phone to a large monitor. Quality content is essential and design and navigation are key to a good user experience.
I design bespoke websites using contemporary web-design principles – mobile first, information architecture and responsive design. I use Webflow – the future in state-of-the art web-design software – to design & build standards-compliant, responsive websites. I also work with web-developers.
Design is key to a good website user experience.
