Logos and Branding

How your business looks and how it shows-up online is crucial, as it creates the first impression with your customers and we all know how first impressions count – so it needs to communicate the right message and attract the right audience! 

Branding is all about how you communicate with your customers at every touch point and critically how you make them feel when working with your business – so it has got to matter!

Graphic Design

In today’s world all businesses need design, to attract, engage and connect with their customers  – to stand out from the crowd and ‘show-up’ better and that’s why I offer The Design Solution.

I want to work work with you, where your proposition and positioning are aligned with your 3Ms – so the design can shine and do its job. I can also train you how to do the everyday stuff yourself and learn more about design and marketing with my online training!

Design Training

This is not about being a graphic designer – this is about knowing more about design and marketing so you can make an impact in your business and stand out from the crowd! I can teach you or your team – face-to-face or online, workshops and courses specifically catering to your training needs.

If you want the knowledge and skills to be able to do this yourself I’ve created 2 online digital courses where you can learn more about design and marketing and take control of your own learning!

Websites, Signage +

Your website is your shop window – it’s where people will find out about your business and make instant judgements – so it’s got be clear who it is for, why should they care and how does it benefit them. We can get it right for you and your business!

Signage is free advertising – it tells people who you are!  Whether it’s your shop, office or van it needs to look good and have impact!
