Describe your creative process.

Generally, we tend to follow this five-step process:
Gathering research material and any related data and reading through/visually interpreting.
Allowing the ideas to filter down through my mind which helps to start to sieve out the good ideas from the bad.
Taking time to step away from the problem allowing it to 'settle' in my mind.
Allowing the subconscious idea to come back to me before further deep thought.
Presenting our idea/concept to the client and adjusting/redefining it based on feedback.

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

We would generally ask the following questions:
Do you have images of your product/service we can use or do you wish us to employ a photographer or should we use stock images?
Do you have text or copy written for your project? If not do you wish us to write it or organise a Copywriter for you?
Do you have a purchase order which you can send if this is required by your organisation?
Do you have the contact details for those involved in the project?
Do you have a timescale for the first proof and for the final deadline?

What do you love most about your job?

I love the opportunity to work with so many different people from different backgrounds and all possible walks of life. It's one of the most interesting and rewarding parts of having a graphic design business (or indeed any business) - you never know what the next email, text or telephone call can bring or whom you'll be talking too. A lot of my friends started as clients but as you get to work together you get to know each other and this can help strengthen the working relationship and benefit the resulting work.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Well, I'm a qualified graphic designer and I'd always been employed within the creative industries so it made perfect sense for me to use my skills and experience to eventually work for myself. Having worked in advertising agencies, graphic design consultancies and large media companies I had all-round practical and actual experience - as well as the typical services you'd expect from a graphic designer, my roles have also included writing scripts for TV and radio ads, directing adverts, designing packaging for leading UK Supermarket chains, designing all the advertising and marketing/promotional literature for a leading clothing and home goods chain, designing labels and packaging for the drinks industry and much more besides!

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a huge amount of experience in all areas of graphic design and the creative industries.
I've worked on projects for some of the UK's biggest brands.
I'm reliable and trustworthy and quick to respond to any questions.
The fee I give is the fee you pay - no hidden charges.
Excellent communications skills.
Over 30 years of experience in the UK creative industry.

Graphic Design FAQs

Expand all

Having fantastic visual design can really change how your audience (or customers) view you. In fact, great graphic design goes way past just making things look good. As well as a strong visual impression, brilliant graphic design enables you to amplify your efforts and get your message across in a way that will make people take notice.

Making the correct first impression is vital. With great design principles, you can create an image of your company that stays in the mind of your audiences. Add to this a consistency across all of your materials, and you will quickly be able to build trust in your brand. As well as communicating with your audience visually, you’ll be able to convey your values. Things like having a well-defined logo can be the first step towards perfect brand recognition.

It is well known that we are very visual creatures. Having the right content, designed in the right way, can really encourage your audience to learn more about your business. Being able to express ideas visually can also help to break down complex content that can be difficult to get across with words alone. This combination of benefits allows you to build a great relationship with your audience over time. This can transform into growth for your brand or increased revenue (depending on your goals).

When it comes to choosing your graphic designer, make sure you are clear as possible about what you expect from them. It’s best to write a detailed brief with background, details and timelines on your project. Giving them the relevant background information will attract the best talent possible for your brief.

Make sure to share details about your company, what you wish to achieve and any qualifications you think are necessary for the role. Explain any deadlines and things they may have to work around to make sure their understanding of the job is as comprehensive as possible.

It can also help if you understand a little bit about design yourself. Without going into too much detail, you can research what skills you would need for a particular job. After getting your head around some fundamental concepts, you can ask your candidate some questions to see how they respond.

This could be about past work they’ve done, or it could be about something you are wishing to create from scratch. This will give you a good idea of how they come up with solutions. You may even assign a trial project to complete – as long as this trial is paid for.

Talking to your potential designer on the phone is also useful. This way you can get a great understanding of how you will communicate together and whether you see eye to eye. Be sure to ask your candidate what they will need from you as well. This will help your project to go smoothly and result in the best possible outcome.

The different kinds of graphic design and their complexity will greatly affect how much you can expect to pay. Graphic designers create a huge array of content – from posters and flyers to websites and logos. Some of these graphics are used for film or TV, while others find placement within ads. Graphic designers mix both skill and creativity, while also being able to communicate with clients in an effective manner.

In a word, yes! Graphic design can be carried out remotely, so as long as you're able to discuss the brief with your expert over the phone or via video chat, then you're good to go.
