agency and business support

agency

I offer support to design and marketing agencies. Either covering for designers and artworkers on holiday or sick leave. Or providing an extra pair of hands when the workload gets too much for existing staff. I'll also consider short term contracts, for example covering maternity leave.

I can either work in-house using your own equipment or I can use my MacBook Pro laptop running up-to-date Adobe CC and Microsoft Office. Alternatively if you don't have the space or don't need me on-site I can work from home in a dedicated office with high-speed broadband.

I charge a flat day rate in-house for 7.5 hours of work and hourly from home. I have access to a car so transport to and from your office isn't a problem, although there is a limit to how far I will drive!

I'm comfortable on either Mac or PC and have in-depth knowledge of Adobe CC applications, including InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat. With a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office.

Please connect with me on LinkedIn to see my references and contact me if you wish to see my full CV.

business support

If you don't have in-house design support or you're a small business looking to have something designed at an affordable price, then I can help.

I don't market myself as as 'large' agency, unlike some freelance designers. It's just me and you'll only be dealing with me, unless I need to bring in other skills to supply you with what you want.

If you are just starting up a new business I can help you by creating a brand including a logo and the look and feel for your company. Please see my branding work in my portfolio section.

Anything you want printed I can both design and create the artwork ready for printing. It can be anything from large brochures, small leaflets, adverts, stationery, vehicle livery or promotional items like stickers and bags. If you need help arranging printing I can either arrange it for you or provide a guiding hand when dealing with your own printer.

Should you require digital design like web banners, emails or a website I can help. Static and animated gif web banners are quick and easy to create. If it's email marketing you need I can either support you with your chosen service provider like MailChimp, creating emails using their Email Designer, or I can create bespoke emails to upload and send instead.

There are many ways to get a website up and running, from using a company that offers all-in-one packages including hosting and templates like 1&1 ionos, to having a completely bespoke site and content management system (CMS) built. I can either help you by adding content to a chosen website template or I can create a bespoke site using software called Webflow.

I prefer to host websites directly with Webflow and use their CMS – watch these videos to see how easy it is to use. Or if you specifically want a site on a particular system like WordPress, then I can export the website files for you to use as you wish.
