Graphic design



At its simplest, graphic design is about creating a harmonious balance of text, images and space to better communicate ideas and messages. Good graphic design is based on well defined objectives and a clear understanding of the target audience.

I use a variety of graphic design software packages, such as QuarkXpress, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, to create a wide range of material, including:

  • ss_leafletsLeaflets and flyers
  • Business cards
  • Newsletters
  • Books
  • Reports and annual reviews
  • Indoor display materials
  • Pop-up banners
  • Outdoor interpretation panels
  • Maps and illustrations

All design work is provided as high-resolution PDF proofs before being sent to print.

I’m an experienced designer and am happy to take on all kinds of creative challenges – any size, shape, format or audience. I can help with presenting your project or business in the best possible light, choosing the right format, design and images for your audience. I can work within existing brand guidelines (logos, layout, colours and fonts) or produce something new.

I can also print manage the job for you, obtaining quotes and liasing with printers to ensure that the finished product is delivered in the right place at the right time. Alternatively, I can provide print-ready artwork in an electronic format if you prefer to source a printer yourself.

My rate is £30 per hour or £180 per day, depending on the exact nature of the job. Each estimate I provide details the stages of the job and the costs involved.
