I am a multi-disciplined creative freelance web designer, graphic designer, copywriter, marketing consultant and artist based in Chester & Nantwich, Cheshire, who is passionate about communication in all of its forms.
A career path that has included architecture, journalism, publishing, graphic design, web design and art allows me to consider every creative challenge from a variety of perspectives, in three dimensions, two dimensions, through the written and spoken word, digitally, or with a pencil or paintbrush. I don’t confine myself to one medium. I use words, pictures, art, colour, lines, computers, paints, pencils, my eyes, my mouth and – most of all – my ears.
I am a creative communicator who strives to bring intelligence, imagination and quality to all my work. I believe in collaboration not competition. I love working with agencies, other creatives and clients across the North West, Cheshire, Merseyside, and Staffordshire and am available for freelance design work across the UK.
What I do
Graphic design, web design, brand identity, creative campaigns, social media, marketing strategy, brand consultancy, marketing consultancy, experiential design, event design, SEO, publishing, writing, journalism, production journalism, sub-editing, layout design, newspaper and magazine redesigns, copywriting. Usually a combination of many of these things, occasionally all of them. Sometimes, and that’s the fun bit, none of them. If you are looking for a freelance web designer in Chester or a freelance graphic designer in Chester or Manchester then get in touch.
