Byfield, Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire(2 Reviews)
Looking for a personal designer without the designer price tag? Then I’m your gal at only £30 an hour.
Graphic Design - Logos, Business Cards, Posters, Leaflets, Brochures, Clothing Design and more. I work with Adobe Photoshop on my laptop or Adobe Sketch on my iPad Pro.
Website Design - I provide personal and small business website design and hosting. I use Moonfruit, who provide freedom of design, value for money and great security. I can also use Wordpress if you have a preference.
Illustration - I sketch traditionally on paper or digitally on my iPad Pro. I recently had my very own adult colouring book published with 45 of my illustrations. It has proved so popular I have been asked to do a deluxe version!
I enjoy working with individuals and small businesses who need a creative helping hand with a project or starting up their business. I pride myself in quality and great value for money. I work part-time due to chronic fatigue. This does not affect my work quality or ethic, I just work odd hours.
You can view examples of my work and my book on my website: taylormaiddesigns.co.uk

Taylor Maid Designs Q&A
What makes a great website?
Simple design, ease of use and incorporating the client’s style/brand into a bespoke design.
Everyone needs something different. I listen to my clients needs and am happy to make alterations throughout the project.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What is your business?
What is your logo and brand?
What are your ideas?
Do you already have a domain name?
Do you need an online shop?
Would you like a traditional site or a responsive site?
Do you need admin access to your site?
Describe your creative process.
We will have an initial discussion. I usually work over email but I am happy to meet up or speak on the phone.
I will send you a few initial designs, which will help you to choose which direction you want the design to go in.
We will continue this process.
I will keep you informed every step of the way, keeping track of my hours and taking on your feedback, making alterations and trying out different ideas.
Websites - Once you are happy with the finished design, there are a few technical things to sort out and then I can make the website live to the world! I will make you a Google Analytics account and link/set up your Google Business account, so you can be found on search engines.
I will continue to stay in touch until you are happy with the final product.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
An explanation of your business and your brand.
What is your project deadline?
What is your budget?
Would you like to agree a set price now or have an estimate and work by the hour?
What do you love most about your job?
I love what I do because I like helping people, in all sorts of ways. With this job I can help someone create a successful business and provide a good life for themselves and their family.
This industry, like many others, can be very scary and money oriented. I am approachable, honest and a bargain. I work hard, when I am able, and am very proud of the skills I have learnt over the years and the service I provide.
I get great job satisfaction when I see how happy my clients are. That’s what has kept my motivation in this line of work. I feel I am making a positive difference in someone’s life, as well as my own.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I have always been interested in art and design.
I gained a BTEC in Graphic Design from Oxford and Cherwell Valley College and a Multi-Media HND from Leeds University.
I then discovered I had chronic fatigue and was unable to work professionally for many years.
I tried to do my bit for the world through voluntary work, design and website favours, learning new skills along the way.
In 2012 I got the opportunity to work with Panopticon Films in Hull and do an internship with Calvin Innes, a successful author and illustrator.
I soaked up this experience and gained business knowledge and confidence along the way.
I have been successfully running Taylor Maid Designs ever since.
Why should our clients choose you?
If you are an individual or small business then I may well be the designer you have been looking for.
I can offer you a personal design service, without the designer price tag.
