Double the impact of your message at a small fraction of your budget. When it comes to making a memorable impression with customers, clients or investors, it's one of the most cost effective choices you can make.
The Advantages of Custom Graphics:

reinforce branding and be integrated seamlessly into pre-existing content
demonstrate an extra level of refinement that differentiates you from competitiors
With decades of experience in print and web design, graphics and illustration is my favourite work - creating a beautiful piece of graphic design and having a happy client is immensely satisfying. My aim is to provide results that exceed expectations both in quality and value. I am equally comfortable both following direction and providing ongoing consultation and advice.
Equally important, on the practical side of things - years of experience in all areas of print and web design result in a comprehensive understanding of the technical requirements and pitfalls of output for web, print, large scale output, technical signage and decals or any other specialist output.
What's the Cost?
The cost of a job reflects the time required to complete it: typically the more complexity, detail or "content-to-come" involved in a job, the more time needed and the higher the cost.
Estimates and Quotes
Given a broad description of a job, an estimate of cost can be made: this is a intended as a guide only, not a commitment - though I will aim to come at or under an estimate where ever possible. In this case, itemised time sheets are kept and used to generate the final invoice.
Alternately if a firm quote is required, a written brief which we both agree on is required. Some alteration is to be expected as a job goes forward but author's changes to the brief that result in significant extra time may render the quote based on that brief becoming null and void - I will clearly warn you if this looks likely. Time sheets are not kept in this situation and the invoice will be for the quoted amount.
Of course nobody wants to spend any more money than they need to. Here are some tips:
- Be organised
A smooth job is a cheap job - the less time I spend just assembling and collating content or dealing with 'content to come' unknowns, the better the chance of coming in under budget.
- Be flexible
Sometimes a small compromise can make a big difference in terms of time and effort involved - I'll advise if this is the case and let you decide.
- Repeat business
Regular, reliable clients receive discounted rates and preferential treatment.
