And yes, that's me on the right, pointing awkwardly at this paragraph. (If you're on a phone, I'm hidden. Lucky you.)
I specialise in branding, web design & web development, working with clients across the UK and internationally. My goal is to help you communicate effectively with your target market and ultimately help you achieve your long-term business and brand objectives.
I see myself as a hybrid, being able to work on the visual and functional aspects of a project, whether it's developing a brand or building a data driven website. My belief is that design and development should work in unison, and not be seen as two separate disciplines.
Interested in hiring me for your next project?
Simply fill out the information below and I'll be in touch very soon.
Nope. Quite the opposite in fact. Whilst some people make the assumption that the business employs many people, it's actually a one man operation. Occasionally I will bring in additional support if larger projects deem it necessary, but you can be rest assured that I only work with people at the top of their game.
Yes, although my core offering will always be brand development, web design and web development. I do a lot of general graphic design for existing clients, high fidelity web page design and I also build quite a few responsive HTML emails each month. If you've got a particular requirement and think I might be the right person for the job, feel free to get in touch.
Brand identity projects typically take between 4-8 weeks, depending on the scope of the project and available budget. Occasionally I get requests to complete projects sooner than this, and I'm happy to oblige, but I tend to find that the best results come when I'm able to spend more time on research and brainstorming. Web projects are a little trickier to pin down, as a simple brochure site may only take 2-3 weeks, but a complex web application may take 6 months + to complete. Always best to talk to me about timescales if you have a set deadline.
I'm very transparent when it comes to payment. Every project requires a minimum 50% deposit prior to commencement. The remaining balance is due on completion, before any artwork files are released / before your website goes live. On larger projects (£10k +), I'm happy to split the total into 3 equal instalments spread over the duration of the project. If you're hiring me on a day rate I require full payment at the time of booking to secure the date.
Simple. Fill out the form above and tell me about your project. I usually respond within 24 hours. Once we've had an initial chat, I'll present you with a proposal which highlights costs and timescales. The proposal needs to be signed and deposit paid before I can progress further. For brand and web projects, I have a series of questions that helps me extract the information I need in order to make a start on your project. The more information you can provide at this stage, the better I will understand your goals and objectives, which in turn will reduce the time it takes to complete your project.
Speak to a Uni is an education event listing website, helping students discover when university events are happening on campus, overseas or online.
This project included development of the brand identity and associated brand collateral, as well as the design and build of a bespoke, search driven website.
The website fills a gap for students and universities alike, in that it focuses specifically on promoting open days and events, searchable by subject, location or university.
