I am a highly experienced creative based in West Yorkshire. I work with small and medium size businesses who do not have the budget for a traditional design agency, as well as with freelance marketers who want a creative resource to support their consultancy work.

I believe design is a process of creative problem solving rather than simply making things look pretty. The key to really good design is to spend more time defining the problem. The value I bring to your business is not just in terms of the creative work we produce together: it's also in creating those "a-ha!" moments that help you clarify what it is you are trying to achieve.

Other Stuff

Design is the process of creative problem solving. Below are various problems I've solved over recent years, including an online campaing for electric bikes, conceptual work to launch a new undertakers business, POS and staff motivational posters for a car dealership, Facebook advertising, a TV ad that demonstrates you don't need a massive budget if you have a great idea, and a book cover (for a real book).

If you require some creative solving give me a call on 07817 502 983.

Copywriting

I have written long and short copy for advertising, brochures, radio and TV, product launch presentations and, of course, the web and email. With a Master of Science by Research (Distinction) in Psychology I am an expert in the action orientation of language - understanding what the words we choose do in terms of social actions rather than what they merely say. If you'd like to find out more give me a call on 07817 502 983.

Video & Music Production

Gone are the days when vide production was the preserve of companies with large budgets. With mobile phones now shooting in 4K resolution, the world of video production is accessible to anyone (with a tripod!). From scriptiing to editing, sourcing library footage or creating the music, I have experience of creating promotional videos for use on the web, social media, and as presentations.

You can view my Vimeo channel here. If you'd like to find out more get in touch on 07817 502 983.

Logos

A well designed logo has to do more than look nice. It has to work across websites and print, on vehicles and mobile phones, corporate clothing and your business card. It also has to work in a single colour as well as it works in glorious technicolour. The examples below are just my personal favourites.

Website Design

I have designed and built all types of websites, from simple single page sites to complex automotive dealership sites that integrate with 3rd party vendor APIs. I consider Search Engine Opitmisation (SEO) to be a critical part of any design rather than something you have to pay a third party to achieve afterwards. I can build your website using platforms such as WordPress or Shopify, using good old fashioned HTML, or even with a bespoke content managemenet system.

I can help you set up your own website hosting and emails and translate techno-speak into plain English.

Email

It's hardly surprising that email marketing continues to grow when you consider how cost effective it is against traditional direct mail, and also how measurable the results are.

I design and code HTML emails for use on Campaign Monitor, Mail chimp, or Constant Contact. Click on the images below to view example emails. If you'd like to find out more get in touch on 07817 502 983.
