• I’m a multi-disciplined, ideas-led graphic designer and graduate of the Kent College of Arts. I work with iconic brands, corporate leaders and start-up enterprises – producing a high standard of graphic design that is driven by bold creative thinking.

    I think graphic design should provoke a reaction, using meaningful and relevant ideas to engage with your audience and leave an impression.

    I am a designer and a thinker. I like to doodle, drool over fonts and pour through design.
    Designing web and print interfaces has to be one of the most challenging and rewarding careers. Requiring constant upgrading of knowledge, meeting demanding deadlines and finding solutions to criticism.

    That’s why I love it. Chances are, you’ll find me either in front of a computer screen, i strive to marry the love of web and graphic design by finding a harmonious balance between functionality and aesthetics. Part-time music aficionado, lover of all things design, food fiend, and dreamer. .

devopsmanager Design

Name: devopsmanager company logo project 
 
David Mills sent me your details (I work at Tonbridge School with him), I have recently finished an update on an app which I am very proud of.
 
More details about my app can be found here: https://devopsmanager.app
 
Do you think you could help?
 
About our company: Manage your Azure DevOps (formally VSTS) projects, including work items, start builds, view git information.. 
 
What do we need? We need a logo for our company. A simple logo design allows for easy recognition and allows the logo to be versatile & memorable. Good logos feature something unique without being overdrawn. … The principle of design; was Keep It Simple
 
Why do we need it? We’re looking to quickly grow our App business and need a company logo to get us going. We’ll use it to raise brand awareness and take us forward into the industry. 
 
Client feedback ( best part ) Wow, just wow. These designs are amazing!! I’m gonna have a very very difficult time picking one. 
 
I will certainly be contacting you again to work out the other icons along with updated icons for my other (and future apps)
 
I’m still speechless – just amazing!
 
 
 

I have loved drawing since I was a kid ( mostly to stop getting picked on ). 

I have loved drawing since I was a kid ( mostly to stop getting picked on ). 

Most of my childhood and teenage years I would draw even during Maths. Most people at School would recognize me for it. I would design on paper and walls and did so many things for the love of art. 

My dad was a printer so I absolutely loved flipping through magazines he had printed. I would be fascinated by the composition of the designs, the sheer perfection of their photography, typography and colours, I would find them so beautiful. 
 
I would draw comic books with my friend Jamie when I was a teenager. When it was time to pick a career, I knew Graphic Design was the perfect combination of art and business, at least in my opinion back then. 
 
During my design career, I would see the odd thing popping up here and there, about 99designs and other crowdsourced platforms. I didn’t pay much attention, because when you’re at a full-time job, your position is (relatively) secured.
 
You are part of a team that develops a brand, and as they grow, the expectation is that you’ll be there to help them expand. 
 
The how should I say slap in the face about the place that the industry was in didn’t come until I started working for myself. Where I had been a valued asset of a team at a company, a freelance graphic designer turned out to be a very challenging episode.
 
Not only small business owners thought that they could do it all themselves (or their nephew could), this time around, they could actually get work done for a pence. 
 
Platforms were you can have a logo design for as low as £5. Even more, sites like Fiverr already have people offering the service at this price.
 
Additionally, the design and development of websites had been massively taken over by DIY platforms such as Squarespace and Wix, that allows anyone to move things around and build something, plenty of times the outcome isn’t good, but it is something nonetheless.
 
I think the saddest part of it all to me is how hard it is for talented and well-experienced people to leave the corporate sphere and make money off their practice independently right now. The commodification of graphic design is a problem that is way beyond a solution at this point.
 
There will continue to be agencies and individuals with such a distinctive style that they might still make sizeable amounts of money, but this industry and its opportunities are getting smaller and smaller by the hour.

Effective self-promotion can be notoriously difficult to get right. Whether you’re a freelancer trying to make a name for yourself or a design studio fishing for new clients, the goal is always to stand out – but for the right reasons.

My self-promo materials are beautifully designed, of course – it’s all about practising what I preach. I want to show how I solve a design problem, rather than just be a flash-in-the-pan with a  ‘look at me’ gimmick. 

So with that please look at my website to see what I can offer for YOU!

Breaking up bad design

Breaking up bad design

Bad design is like noise. Like clutter. It can be frustrating, dull, or annoying. It may be as bad as actually ugly, or simply unremarkable and therefore not worthy of someone’s attention. To your audience, bad design is an obstacle instead of an enabler.
At best, bad design does not help your cause; at worst, it hinders your cause by creating an obstacle for the audience to climb over. Why create more obstacles to getting your audiences’ attention?

Good design makes it easy for your audience to hear you, to “get it”, to tell others, and take action. Good design helps your audience understand your message – which helps you achieve your goals. Good design creates delight, ease, joy, and efficiency.

Good design attracts positive attention. Good design will succeed in expressing the intended message to the intended audience in a memorable way – the ultimate goal of any visual communication project. So hire me to make you stand out from the crowd.
