Designs Like These – committed to creating great design with purpose.

The measure of great design is when your message is understood and you look authentic and distinctive. Being true to your business is very important and can be achieved by asking the right questions.

Is the design process a mystery to you? I help people identify how to improve the way their business looks. It does not have to be a big project or a big change. Following a step-by-step process, it can be easy to implement. Have a look at the process.

What if you don’t like the results?

‘I believe in giving lots of options and am happy to take a few u-turns along the way. I understand that people learn what they do and don’t like as they see it. By getting to know you first and writing the brief together, we can find the right answers.’

Can we do a trial run?

Of course! I am happy to agree an initial bite-size amount of work so you can see if we are a good fit before committing to the whole project.

Building teams

I have trusted contacts who make up a wider collaborative team:

printers | photographers | copywriters | web developers | illustrators | videographers
