TOGETHER, WE CAN CREATE GREAT THINGS

Having worked as Graphic Designer in Ipswich for nearly 20 years, I’m often get asked how I work. For me, every project is unique, so I will take the time to listen and understand the brief for your project; what you want and what you need. I love working with great people and hearing what they’re passionate about.  So I will work closely with you in order to create high-quality, effective design that meets your objectives and motivates your customers.

At the forefront of it all, I believe clear communication with you is key.

01. LISTEN

It’s good to talk! Perhaps a phone call, video chat or even a coffee and cake! This is the stage where hearing what you have to say is really important. If you already have a brief that’s great. If you don’t, then using my years of experience I’ll know all the questions I need to ask to build a brief together and give you my best on the project. This will often involve bringing to the front of your mind things you might not have thought of. Don’t worry though, that’s what I’m here for! Amongst other things we’ll discuss objectives, budget, deliverables and timelines.

02. EXPLORE

Once a brief is in place, the fun begins! I will begin looking at your target market, competitors and any brands of significance to you. I will explore colours and typography, latest trends and styles to help me form the basis of my ideas.

03. CREATE

This is where I begin my preliminary sketches, develop concepts and mock up visuals. I will select and develop the strongest ideas and present them to you, explaining my thought process and evaluating against the brief. Feedback from you, my client will follow.

04. REFINE

You will be asked to review and evaluate the concepts and if deemed necessary I can provide my guidance and input on your choices. As much as possible I try not to influence your decision unless you ask for my professional opinion, which of course I will be happy to give. Any feedback will then be used to develop and refine your concepts into final designs.

05. DELIVER

Once you are happy with the final designs I will then supply artwork files to yourself or your printer, or if you prefer, arrange print for you. The best part of this process for me is seeing your marketing bring the success you desire – seeing your marketing out in the public domain.

That needn’t be the end, even after your project is complete your success is always there in my mind and I’ll be looking out for new opportunities to ensure your growth. I believe very much in building long-term relationships with all my clients so that together we can ensure consistency of brand and monitor the impact of your marketing.
