Janet Botes Art & Design

I am a nature-hearted creator who specialize in design and illustration for nurseries, permaculture projects, healers, conservation organisations and sanctuaries. Of course I can also happily and skillfully apply myself to crafting visual material for any business, entrepreneur, small business, coach, musician, yoga studio, etc... I particularly lean towards layout, typography, illustration, and logo design. And... My skills are not limited to the digital and marketing realm. I am also a fine artist, eco arts coordinator and workshop facilitator. Talk to me about the possibilities!

Describe your creative process.

After a conversation(s) about the intention, aims, style, and desired outputs for the project, I start planning the design(s) on paper, look for reference material (if none were provided), and work on draft designs. Draft designs are presented, after which all feedback and suggestions are considered, discussed, and applied where relevant. Another two rounds (if needed) of presentation-and-feedback brings us to final approval of the design, after which final files are prepared, exported and delivered digitally to the client or printers.

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

Information about the business, which could include target audience, services/products offered, vision & mission statement, values, and of course the aims and objectives for the project. Visual reference material is always welcome, e.g. examples of similar designs, similar brands, etc. as it gives a clearer connection point between the client's vision and my own creative personality/style.

What do you love most about your job?

I love that I get to be creative and playful in my work on a daily basis. I love that my work relies on me getting as much inspiration from the world around me as possible - I love to explore and learn!

What inspired you to start your own business?

My main values are creativity, freedom, and authenticity. Freedom and flexibility in my schedule and physical location has been one of my main reasons for working as a freelancer. I love to flow from one activity to the next in a quite intuitive and spontaneous way - leveraging my most creative times as optimally as possible. I also travel often, which is much easier to do when I can work from anywhere, and for myself.

Why should our clients choose you?

Even though I conduct myself professionally, I am also warm, compassionate, considerate, and friendly. I am highly creative and prolific in my skills and techniques. My ideal clients are as conscious of our environmental footprint and social impact as I am, and their business are aimed at uplifting, empowering or inspiring positive change in the world.

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

Yes, I mostly work remotely and online, we can meet from the comfort of your own couch, bed, or home office!

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.
