Benefits of working with a freelancer (me!)
There are really good agencies and there are really good freelancers. Here’s why I choose to work freelance…
I can keep my costs low and provide a personal service.
There are no delays, communication is simple, and I can give you the full benefit of my experience in design for print – and for web – without placing a premium on it.
And I can give your project my full attention.
The Lake District is an inspiring and creative environment in which to live and work. As a freelance designer, I’m well placed to respond to the needs of local, regional and national clients from my base here – I even respond to briefs from international customers on occasion.
Over the last two decades I have enjoyed learning new skills and building a knowledge base that allows me to bridge print and web, which is beneficial to clients who wish to create a brand and marketing strategy that works well across both.
My professional roles have included Art Editor at NME and Select Magazine, Senior Designer at well-respected local agencies, and Creative and Digital Designer at Adventure Peaks, where I’ve created and managed multiple websites and devised web strategies to boost sales, increase conversions, and raise brand awareness.
The experience I’ve gained in fast-paced and deadline-driven roles means I’m good at working to tight deadlines and on challenging projects. I have built up excellent knowledge and understanding of design, digital marketing, search engine optimisation and E-commerce and have experience in pay per click advertising, search and social media platforms.
Aside from the professionalism upon which I pride myself, I’m also very approachable and easy to work with. I’m happy to walk clients through the creative process so that they feel 100% comfortable with what’s involved and know what to expect from me at each stage. This leads to positive working relationships, which in turn leads to improved outcomes.

It can be really easy to forget that the work you do isn’t the work that everyone else does. This will, I hope, explain a bit more about my working approach:
