Describe your creative process.

I like to get to know my creations before I meet them. In other words, I dig as much as I need to about what you have invisioned for your brand so that we can meet each other on a certain creative page and explore its' possibilities. The only unfortunate part is that you only get one of the presented options.

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

Critical info for my design process includes:
-Your Name & Surname
-Your email address
-The name of the company/ brand
-All relevant contact numbers and details
-The brand slogan
-The colours you prefer/ associated with your brand
-Your Address/ company address
- Size of design (A5, A3, Banner 2mx1m, etc.)
-If you are building a website there's many more details that are needed including your company profile. I usually send a questionnaire for you to fill out before I start a website.

What do you love most about your job?

It's incredible to be in a space where you can interact with literally every industry known to man. I love that factor because it allows me to experiment with different design concepts from all the different industries. I love making people look good because it's something I struggled a lot with when I was a young entrepreneur.

What inspired you to start your own business?

To be honest, I never thought I l'd have my own design company. Designing is something I did to compliment the music I was making. But when making money in the music biz proved to be an expensive exercise, I then started offering my services to people near me so that I could make some extra money to invest in the music. To my surprise, people kept coming back for my services and even referred more people to me. That is when I realized the potential of a media and design company. I've since then grown in skills and my passion for design has also grown exponentially.

Why should our clients choose you?

I'm more than a designer, I'm an entrepreneur at heart, I just happen to also have a very creative side to me. After all, business is about finding creative solutions. I offer creative solutions at very competitive prices and you will never walk away unsatisfied, my 100% customer service score is a clear reflection of this.

Graphic Design FAQs

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.
