Q&As

A blog on my website explaining my creative process is coming soon!

For a logo design project, a detailed questionnaire will be sent. The answers to this form the creative brief for the project. Depending on the value of the job, I usually also ask for a small deposit beforehand.

The opportunity for flexible working and the variety of projects that come in. It's certainly not boring!

Design is important to smaller organisations but they are more likely to compromise on accessing quality design input because of costs. Having previously worked for a global advertising agency looking after the advertising for large multinational companies, I was inspired to start my own business in order to give smaller companies and organisations a chance to access good design without having to pay the overheads of a design agency. More importantly, the quality of the relationship matters - something that can be hard to come by in a busy, agency setting.

Having worked in both marketing and design means I have the experience of the full picture:

Commissioning design and a client's perspective
Brainstorming, developing and executing design
How text and type play a crucial role in design
Knowledge of the intricacies of print
Knowledge of design for web
How the design process and result fits in with the overall marketing and promotion of your brand or product.

I also bring the following identified strengths to a project:
Connectedness (I form a bond with each individual, pay close attention to what individuals think and do)
Empathy
Positivity
Responsibility
Input (I want to know more, I collect and archive information, I spend time thinking)

I can provide my services remotely. I've never met some of my clients or even spoken to them over the phone. This may sound like an odd thing but it shows the strength of clear communication as well as, I believe, my ability to assess and gauge a client's needs effectively, even remotely.
