Hi, I’m David.


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.


If you like my approach and have a project in mind, send me an enquiry and I'll respond as soon as I can. You can also find out more about how I work in the FAQs section.

Let's build something amazing together


Interested in hiring me for your next project?
Simply fill out the information below and I'll be in touch very soon.


Frequently asked questions


Do you offer any other services?

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 have a particular requirement and think I might be the right person for the job, feel free to ask.

How long do your projects take?

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.

What are your payment terms?

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.

How do I get started?

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.

Testimonial



I decided to work with Sun Jones because they took the time to get to know me, grill me a little further on my original brief and come up with a proposal that was realistic compared to some other suppliers.

Sun Jones helped me by creating my brand from scratch, everything from the colour scheme to the logo to the website. The result was just what I was looking for; clean, bright and bold. And, although it was hard to make decisions at times, Sun Jones were patient with me and supported me through some big decisions for my small business.

One thing I really liked was their planning process, being clear about what was going to be delivered and when. This approach managed my expectations and helped me understand the steps we had to go through to meet deadlines. I found the experience to be really smooth, I felt confident in them so it was exciting to receive designs and see my business idea come to life. They've bent over backwards to meet my deadline so I'll be eternally thankful to them and on a personal level they are a really friendly bunch to work with.

I would recommend Sun Jones to everyone! If you need support in producing a visual asset for your business, no matter how big or small, you'll be in safe hands.

Testimonial



We were looking for a company that could help us add more substance and visual appeal to the Flat Fee Recruiter brand, as well as overhaul the design of the website. After having an initial meeting with Sun Jones we decided they were the right fit for us. They helped us develop a family of illustrated characters which added a touch of humour to the brand and created a selection of illustrated brand assets that could be used for future marketing requirements. The characters feature prominently throughout the new website and aid in segmenting the wealth of content available. Since going live with the updated brand and website we’ve had some great feedback. We’re really pleased with the work carried out by Sun Jones and will continue to work with them in the future.

Testimonial



Sun Jones undertook a double project for Opportunity Marketing virtually simultaneously in setting up two websites for two different sides to the business. I know how difficult and painful it can be creating one website, so to undertake two at once was a big ask. I chose Sun Jones because I had worked with David before on client projects and enjoyed working with him and I know he works tirelessly to ensure the job is completed to the client's satisfaction. He also has a knack of taking a brief and creating an impactful visual communication of this (albeit with a few minor tweaks). Both sites went live on schedule and immediately started to generate the results I had hoped for - an upturn in enquiries. I was delighted with the service I received from Sun Jones, which is why I have continued to be an ongoing client for them and have also referred other projects to them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
