graphic design - background & services
I studied Art, Design and Media at the University of Portsmouth, and Typography at the London College of Communication (University of the Arts, London). I have been freelancing for 12+ years and work from my studio in Brighton.
I am fully conversant in Mac and PC and all major industry-standard design programmes. Much of my design work is undertaken for not-for-profit organisations, the voluntary and charity sector, alongside corporate clients, small businesses and individuals. Services available include:
- Branding, logo and identity design
- Packaging design and labels
- Bespoke brand illustrations
- Infographics design
- Social media graphics
- Corporate literature
- Flyers, brochures and reports
- Presentations (e.g. Powerpoint)
- Business cards, letterheads and stationery
- Wedding invitations
- Web visuals, banners and online adverts
- Exhibition graphics and stands
- Book design
- Retouching and manipulating photographs to a pro standard
I aim to be environmentally-friendly, and where printed materials are required requests FSC (Forestry Standards Commission) accredited paper and the use of vegetable-based inks and recycled materials wherever possible.
wine industry design
I’ve been really lucky to work closely with the wonderful wine industry for the last decade. As such much of my work is undertaken in this area (particularly the English Wine industry) for related businesses, plus some external wine brands and events – from luxury packaging design to tourist guides, awards ceremony and events materials, magazines, social media, brand development, advertising and much more.
specialist community and voluntary sector design
I’ve been working closely with many community and voluntary sector clients, charities, social enterprises and related organisations over the last few years and offer a specialist tailored service to clients in this industry. I understand the needs of the sector and am able to offer guidance around printing, marketing and increasing visibility and impact, reporting on achievements, choosing the right promotional formats and materials and keeping to budgets, as well as other design-based considerations.
small businesses and individuals
I love working with small businesses and individuals looking to expand their visibility with a striking new logo, website or promotional materials, developing a tailor-made visual identity to suit many different styles of brand. I’ve also done some of my best and most enjoyable work with clients working in creative industries, including professional photographers, the fashion industry, singers, jewellers, costumiers, sound engineers, artists…
Do you need some standout graphics to help you show off all of your company’s amazing successes? Perhaps you want a short report showing off your brilliant achievements in the form of bespoke designs (such as illustrated charts, pictorial representations, typographic wizardry, specially illustrated quotes), or some social media graphics which display these achievements in a succinct but beautiful format that will instantly capture your audience’s attention. I’ve only ever had fantastic feedback on the infographics I have created for my lovely clients, and have received lots of reports about the strong impact generated. I would love to help you show off too! Please get in touch for samples and more details about this service.
