Meet the designer

My name is Phil and I am a Graphic Designer based in the Northwest of England.

For the past 15 years I have been working on a wide range of commissioned pieces, from small start-ups to well established businesses across the country.

I have always had a passion for Graphic Design and a keen eye for detail – I’m a perfectionist so you can always expect high-quality design. It is my belief the better the piece of work, the more likely you are to use my skills in other projects so it is my mission to deliver to your specification and brief. I am a creative so learning new techniques and incorporating them into my work means the finished product will always be an original piece and stand out from the crowd. If you’re happy, I’m happy.

My expertise lies in building brands so whether you are starting out from scratch or run an established business ready for a rebrand, I am ready for the challenge. Image is everything – what you want your client or customers to know about you starts with the use of colour or font, to the strap lines and business images. We will explore what you want your branding to say about you and how you want them to feel.

Brand Identity Designer

Why choose me? If you want to stand out amongst your competition you need the right designer who will provide the perfect visual identity.

I believe it is more important than ever to have a strong brand that helps you stand out. My 10+ years as a designer have provided me with the skills to adapt to any project and surpass your expectations. My bold, minimalistic, and creative approach to design will help you stand out in your particular sector and marketplace and with this added attention help it to drive more business in.

For small to medium-sized businesses who don’t have an in-house Graphic Designer and would rather avoid high hourly rates of design agencies, working with a freelance Designer makes a lot of sense. Unlike design agencies, you are able to book me as and when you need without longer wait times and extortionate premiums. I am highly experienced in working to tight deadlines without cost to the quality of my work. Most of my clients choose to use me on a retainer basis whereby I will guarantee a fixed numbers of hours per week or month. This is easier to budget for and gives you peace of mind that all your design requirements will be met throughout the year. However smaller businesses may use me as and when required.

There is an expression ‘buy cheap buy twice’, this is a phrase commonly referred to when the value of what you are asking for is much higher than the cost you are prepared to make. This is either your livelihood, your passion or simply a hobby but it is worth remembering that quality comes at a cost. Hiring a person with experience and a keen eye for detail is likely to have a higher return than a grad student or beginner. In the words of Dr. Ralph Speth ‘If you think good design is expensive, you should look at the cost of bad design’.

Whether you are toying with the idea of a logo or ready for a fresh image I wish you success in your ventures.
