Graham created a logo for my photography business to represent me & my brand. He uses exceptional insight and the attention to detail that matters to focus an idea into a design. I'm aware that this is a very small part of his professional design repertoire, but gave great importance to the smallest of details to bring my brand to life. More...

Graham has developed many of our successful brands around the world from sugar in Barbados to chillies and honey in Zimbabwe. His designs are outstandingly creative and effective and have formed the basis for businesses that create real social impact for farmers and the communities that depend on them across Africa and the Caribbean. I would personally recommend Graham to anyone who wants to develop effective brands that stand out in an increasingly cluttered world. More...

Graham has been an absolute superstar! Everything I asked for he delivered and more. He’s a down to earth, responsive, efficient and VERY talented individual who takes great pride in his work. Graham took the time to really understand my business and brand, making sure I was 100% happy with every aspect of the build. I can’t thank him enough for all the hard work he put in to the design and build of my new AMAZING website. Highly recommended! More...

I highly recommend Graham’s services. He took my existing web site, revamped it, added PayPal functionality, added online coaching facilities, and then patiently stepped me through the back end so that I can do the maintenance myself in future. He is a great guy, who exceeded my expectations in every aspect, and all at a very reasonable price, and on time too! More...

The Plantation Reserve brand has gone down a storm in Barbados as well as with the management team at the sugar factory. They have put the pictures on the staff noticeboard and say they are proud to be associated with such a great looking product. More...

I would highly recommend Graham’s services. He designed a logo for my Personal training business. The logo was unique and stood out from the rest and perfect for my business. He has also provided me with ideas of how I can use my logo on clothing for my business. He met my every needs and I am now keen to have my business cards designed by Graham too.He is professional, reliable and an extremely talented designer. I’m very happy with my logo design. It’s original and something I couldn’t have made or would never even have thought of without Graham’s help. More...

Most design projects will invariably follow the following process:

I love the variety of people and projects I have the privilege working with. I enjoy helping my clients to grow their businesses.

I wanted to work directly with clients, to better understand their needs. I could see this would lead to me producing more effective design solutions. And it has.

I have a branding approach to design, meaning that I ensure that anything I design for my clients fits into, supports and reinforces their brand image. This is the essential foundation to any effective piece of design.
