• 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. .

Client Designs

I had recently done a Logo design and had given over as a first draft 6 logo design options with 7 items designed for the brand, for X amount of money ( what I charge a day ).

I am starting to think I should say 50% of payment is due after agreeing to the logo, the other 50% after full work is done. 

I had worked long and hard on X brand for a whole day just to have 0 level payment and a walk away faster than Usain Bolt.

I did everything X stated in the brief “simple, logotype, very simple twist in font, clear and works on all mediums”.

I am finding that my design work is almost being seen as simple and easy and will take no time or money to do. I feel this is devaluing me as a designer.

What do you think? Please leave a comment I would love fee back.
