• 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. .

How much for...? 

The fairest way to charge for my work is to charge for my time. My Day rate is £125 a day 9:30-4:30

Transparent, affordable rates

The fairest way to charge for my work is to charge for my time. £125 a day 9:30-4:30. All quotes I issue are itemised showing what I’m going to deliver and how long it will take. Obviously, quotes are based on estimates of the time required to complete each task of the project, so it’s crucial that I have as much information as possible about the project in advance in order to provide an accurate timescale and quote. I prefer not to issue fixed price quotes for projects I estimate to be under 20 hours, as it makes more sense to just invoice for the hours these smaller projects have taken once completed.

Your budget matters

I’ll always try to find a way to help you within your budget. That doesn’t mean cutting corners, it simply means providing solutions in the shortest possible time that maximises your returns.

Longer-term Projects

Once a project is completed, clients will often ask if they can retain my services on an ongoing basis. This can be for anything from ongoing landing page designs to producing print design assets. I offer long-term, retainer-based projects for my established clients, feel free to get in touch and we can discuss specifics.

30% PAYMENT/ DEPOSIT

This is to secure your project in my calendar and to cover any initial overheads specific to the project. Once the project has commenced, deposits are non-refundable.

50% PAYMENT

Once I have delivered the work, whether that’s the final drafts of a logo or a website to staging for you to try out. We can discuss this milestone before the project commences.

20% FINAL PAYMENT

Once your work or branding is finalised the final work delivered.

Again, I’m happy to be quite flexible on these milestones. I understand that it’s not always straightforward, particularly for larger companies, to settle invoices so flexible. However, work doesn’t start on a project until the initial deposit has been received.

Revisions

This really depends on the project type. For branding projects, I generally include up to 4 logo revisions once a concept has been chosen, with print and websites there’s a bit more leeway. Once the site is up on a staging environment for you to view you can request changes – any revisions that become excessive (take more than a day) are charged at an hourly rate with a pre-defined cap (although that very rarely happens).

Payment Methods

I accept bank transfers (including international) and payment via PayPal. For payments made via PayPal, 3% will be added to your invoice to cover transaction fees. I bill in GBP pound sterling.
