Describe your creative process.

My creative process varies depending on the client. I believe it's important to view each project on an individual basis and find a way of working which suits the particular client. I'm definitley not a one approach fits all scenarios type of designer; it's important for me to work with the client to find out exactly what they are looking for so I can find the best approach to fit their project.

While some clients have a vague idea of what they want others have a clear vision; it can start as simply as a few scribbled notes on a scrap of paper or it can be a highly detailed design brief. The most important stage for me in the creative process is finding out exaclty what it is the client is after, what ideas they have and ensuring we are on the same page so we can work together to create a finished project which perfectly matches their vision and needs.

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

For any project I firstly like to ask a series of questions to establish exactly what the client is after; asking these helps me build a design brief which in turn informs me of what we are looking to achieve from the finished design. Put simply it's a blue print full of the information I need to create a design which works for the client and this will ultimatley vary depending on the specific needs of the task in hand.

Depending on the project I may then need to request further details from the client; be that an existing company logo or information specific to the project i.e. dates, venues, times, prices etc.

Ultimatley I believe in having very open communication with my clients, if I need something I'll pop them across an email or give them a call and I'd like to think my clients would do the same back if they had any questions at any stage of the project.

What do you love most about your job?

I love working with my clients and getting their ideas and thoughts about what they want because this naturally teaches me new things. I don't think I've ever come away from a project without gaining a new skill, or new approach or even a different way of looking at things that I hadn't thought of before.

Ultimately I believe the client always has a vision of what it is they want but not neccesarily the time or the skill set required to turn it into a finished project. The biggest buzz for me is interpreting the clients ideas and turning these into a finsihed project which they know came from the ideas and information they gave me.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Basically the lack of fulfillment I was recieving from my previous jobs.

As work is such a big part of anyones life I got to the stage where I felt it was important to do something which I had a passion for rather than something which would just pay the bills. I decided to go freelance because being very much a people person I wanted to have interaction with my clients and build up a relationship with them and I don't think I would have found this working for a large firm, many of which I believe seem to have lost that personal touch.

Why should our clients choose you?

Because I work tirelessly to ensure that each of my clients is 100% satisfied with the service I provide. As mentioned before I'm not a big company and I don't have anything to hide behind but what I do have is the skills, the passion, the drive and determination to deliver consistent results to my clients each and every time.

I'm a very friendly and approachable person who believes it's important to communicate with my clients every step of the way. By chosing me to carry out your work you are choosing someone that won't just see your project as another job but an opportunity to do something which I am highly passionate about.

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.
