What is Graphic Design?
Graphic Design is the skill of visually communicating a message to a specific audience by using colour, imagery, line, shape, composition and typography.
Graphic Designers are professional, creative problem solvers – visual thinkers and communicators. In order to produce original, creative and innovative solutions for your business – they should have a thorough and in-depth understanding of visual language, semantics, the psychology of colour, have a high level of expertise and skill using digital software.
However, all Graphic Designers are not created equal – we are not all the same!
I’ve got lots of experience to help you grow and market your business. I want to develop a great long-term, working relationship with you because knowing your business makes it easier to design more effectively and for you to trust my judgement and advice – so if you are interested in how we could work together then please get in touch.
Design for Print
In today’s commercial world, print still has a place in connecting with your customers but it is more important than ever the creative solutions are practical, cost-effective and are a strategic part of your marketing.
Therefore your printed marketing material needs to visually connect with your social media platforms and website, as the importance of your branding is crucial to make a lasting, memorable impression and connect with your audience. It’s got to look professional and part of your brand for it to be effective.
I work closely with you to understand your marketing needs and offer graphic design solutions for brochures, flyers, leaflets, pop-up banners, exhibition stands and branded merchandise. Print is not dead – it just needs to work harder for your business and has to have a purpose for it to be effective.
Designing for print has a lot of different variables that can affect the price – and it depends on the brief, its purpose, the logo, text and images you supply. I have a checklist of the things you will need to consider so please get in touch to find out more. Please take a look below in Design Services and Costs.
Design for Social
Having the time to invest in social media is important – all businesses need social engagement and an online presence. Knowing how and when to use your social media platforms and email campaigns to engage your customers, is vital in building your relationships and growing your business.
All your social media business pages need to be branded and look amazing, be set-up correctly and optimised to ensure they work hard for your business and send the right messages out to your potential customers. Your email newsletters and campaigns need to engage, look well-designed, professional and the branding needs to be on-point.
