Be modest but not a shrinking violet

What I do and how I do it…

Creative design is at the core of everything I do, whether its print, web design or brand development, effectiveness is key. Quite simply, I’m passionate about design. I combined technique, theory, passion and curiosity to realise your brand and project ambitions.

Web Design & Development

I offer professional experience developing a range of websites from campaign sites to portfolios and e-commerce driven sites designed for communication and usability effectiveness. I work with open source content management systems like Drupal and WordPress using the latest PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery.

The advent of smart phones and tablets have changed the web landscape forever, your customers are no longer tied to a desktop or laptop; instead they will be using a myriad of devices to view your website, as such I am an advocate of responsive website design.

I have extensive experience managing large scale internet projects and can assist with consultancy, technical document creation, wire frame creation, supplier identification and management and project management. Over the years I’ve also worked with a number of third party developers and agencies so you can rest assured that I have the knowledge to employ the appropriate technology and assign the right specialists to realise the design and strategy of your project. Because I can speak both your language and geek I’ll help you cut through mud and get things done right the first time for a pain-free build.

Brand Development

Branding clearly highlights what makes your product or service different to – and more attractive than – your competitors. It not only positions your product or service in the marketplace it also helps cement it in the minds of your existing and potential customers. With both a new or existing brand you have the opportunity to raise your profile, influence client behaviour and ultimately shift demand for your services and reach.

From logo designs to detailed company branding solutions, I understand that your brand is the cornerstone of all marketing and promotion for your business. My focus is to create a dynamic and original identity solutions that will visually communicate the essence of your business.

Print Design

Good design and quality printing is what I thrive on. I started out as a print and packaging designer and hold dearly to those roots.

My print and production expertise includes: Working with spot and process colours; Litho and digital printing; Press checks; Laminating and spot UV; Binding and stitching; Die cutting; Packaging.

My specialised understanding and approach to print design gives me the ability to deliver high quality, innovative solutions. I take the time to carefully understand the unique requirements of each job and devise creative solutions that deliver the best possible results, cost savings and of course, delivered on time.
