Identity & Branding
Your logo identity needs to communicate the right message to the right people. A professionally designed logo and how it is applied across your business, together with your company’s ethos, history and customer’s perceptions of your company is your brand identity, which sets the tone and creates a long lasting impression - so you need to get it right!
Graphic design covers a wide range of print and online visual concepts that communicate ideas to inspire, inform and captivate consumers. Knowing about visual language, colour psychology, typography as well as the Adobe design software is essential in producing solutions that connect with your audience. So getting to know you and your business is where the journey begins.

I am a graphic designer and work with amazing technical guys to make your web solutions are fully responsive, cost effective and raise brand awareness.
Over the years I have gained invaluable skills to be able to teach and train effectively. Knowing how to get the best out of you and what is appropriate to your business is important. So offering you tailor-made packages specific to your needs - focussing on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and can ensure your on-line social media pages and collateral look great!
Having the time to invest in social media is important - all businesses need social engagement and an on-line presence.

Sarah does a great job with focus and flair. Warmly recommended.David Blackie – International Education Connect Ltd
We were recommended to work with Sarah by a friend who had previously worked with her. From our very first conversation we were confident we had made the right choice, we were complete novices at designing an appropriate brand to showcase our business. Sarah listened, supported and advised on every aspect, guiding us to make the right decisions for DJL. Ultimately we have been left with a design we are very proud of and the response from our customers has been very positive, many of whom only contact us because of the Van! Thank you Sarah, our business would not be what it is without your work. Rob and NatalieDeakin Joinery Locksmith
Sarah was recommended to me and Wow……..What a recommendation. I was in the process of starting a new business and I needed a logo. Sarah has brilliant listening skills and came to me with a portfolio of ideas that had previously just been my imagination. They were amazing. She has a real passion for her work but also delivers in a really friendly, approachable up beat way. Sarah was ‘on-fire’ delivered everything I asked. Guiding me through the maze of website blogs and advising me on the best way to promote my business was invaluable. My new van graphics look amazing and have already generated 4 new clients in 2 weeks which is brilliant.
I really enjoyed working with Sarah, but I have to admit it didn’t feel like work, it was fun and the outcome is fantastic. I would recommend Sarah without a doubt. Thank you.Cara Holmes – Holmes Dog Walking
Sarah has supported us through a company rebrand and relaunch, providing us with a broad range of marketing materials and other collateral. From the outset Sarah has been an outstanding partner. She took time to properly understand our business and where we saw it going, turned work around quickly and has been readily available to respond to feedback and make amendments where required. The end products have been of the highest quality in our opinion and the feedback from existing and prospective clients supports this view. Sarah Bates is highly recommended.John Crossan, Client Relationship Manager – Novum
We contacted Sarah after admiring the work she a had done for FM Projects. She gained a thorough understanding of the image we were trying to project to our clients, and focused on the key professional and clean logo design we desired. A proactive and professional service was delivered through out, and the designs for the logo, business cards and letterheads were excellent.Craig Candlish, Director – Inspect Asbestos Solutions
After a short initial meeting with Sarah, her apparent infectious passion and enthusiasm for design gave me the confidence to engage with Sarah in a rebranding overhaul of our company logo and stationery. Sarah totally got our company and what we are about, reflecting that into the design of our company logo which I am delighted with. I consider the money spent with Sarah to be a fantastic investment for my company and has really strengthened our brand, with many clients complementing the change.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah’s services to anyone, she has exceeded my expectations and really gone the extra mile for us.
