Design Colleague

​I am a naturally empathetic Graphic Designer, with international experience designing and copywriting for blue chip companies with award winning campaigns. I now enjoy working with small businesses and not for profit organisations. I work collaboratively with you, seeing your need through your eyes, operating like your 'in-house designer'. In fact, you could call me your design colleague! I work with small businesses and organisations who don't need a full time design team but need thoughtful and professional design support for print and web every now and then. I get to know your brand and your preferences so I can respond whenever you need design support. Visit designcolleague.com for my portfolio, testimonials and more information on my services.

Describe your creative process.

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

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

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.

What inspired you to start your own business?

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.

Why should our clients choose you?

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)

What do you love most about your job?

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

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

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.

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.
