Illustration & Graphic Design
Logos, stationery (business cards, letterheads), publicity leaflets, brochures, swing tickets, labels, advertisements, posters, book covers, book illustrations, book layout, magazine covers, magazine illustrations, CD cover design, invitations, murals.... I have worked on a variety of illustration and design projects in the past, no two the same. I am open to all ideas, so if you have plans for a particular brief then please get in touch.
How you socialise online can massively affect your business. It's important to have a decent presence on the most relevant social media platforms for your industry, but sometimes this can just be too time-consuming. Whilst I can create attractive graphics to be used across the web, I can also manage your social media profiles. This includes initially setting up accounts, leading on to keeping them up to date with interesting, unique content, as well as engaging with your followers and competitors. Currently, I have experience managing Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.
Copywriting & Blogging
Whilst first impressions are a really big deal, keeping customers interested in the long run is far more of a challenge. One way to ensure that your business stays fresh and exciting is by regularly updating your content, whether it is for web or for printed publications. I can help to write completely unique copy in your "tone of voice" for various uses, including on social media, blogs, websites, email newsletters and brochures. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for spelling and grammar, I will make sure that your copy is accurate and ideal for promoting your brand. Regular blogging is also something I can offer - it will help to give you a wider web presence, drawing in audiences through different avenues.
For those customers that already love your brand, an email newsletter is the perfect way to keep them informed of any updates, special offers and news, whilst keeping the information exclusive to them. Whether you want to send out a newsletter bi-annually, monthly or weekly, I can help you to come up with campaign ideas and bring them to life. Using Mailchimp (or a similar email marketing platform), I design, build and write newsletters for a number of clients, advertising new products, secret sales and seasonal ideas. However you like to use them, it is a great way to reward loyal customers as well as building a new client base.
I now have some connections with reliable printers who produce great quality work. This means I can now offer printing as part of a deal, if required. Less stress and hassle all round!
The Design Process
Once the client has given me a basic idea of what they are looking for, I give them an approximate quote. If the client wants to go ahead and work with me I ask them for a more detailed brief and either work at an hourly rate or negotiate a price per job. Fixed rate projects include a reasonable amount of amendments free of charge - if I feel it goes over this threshold, I charge extra per alteration.
I keep in constant contact with the client through every stage of the project, limiting the amount of changes needed at the end, saving them money and me unnecessary time.
Please contact me for quotes, to enquire about my availability and any other queries.
