When you hire a designer you are putting a lot of faith in that person, no matter what their portfolio demonstrates.

One of my primary subjects and disciplines was graphic design and communication.
From the start I learnt creative thinking, an appreciation for typography, space, colour, composition and developed an overall eye for good effective design. It’s a bold claim but I know that I can match up to the highest industry design standards.


An astute awareness of the most effective design principles for communicating your message.

A good eye for what works and the ability to execute that vision isn’t something that can always be taught.


An ability to create world-class online design to compete with any other in any sector.

Talent for design is as much instinct as it is anything else. You need a few extra creative cords to be plugged in.


Brand styling to truly set businesses and their products apart from the crowd.

"It'll do" definitely will not do! I love taking the positive elements of a brand and making sure they shine through.

How can I be sure I’ll get something that looks good?

Design and what looks good can be very subjective and we all have different tastes to some degree. There is far more to designing than studying existing trends and styles.

My track-record of delivering website design work is excellent, with the first version hitting the spot almost all of the time.

I’ll be the first to hold my hand up and say I missed the mark with anything I create that falls short. I can’t hide my lack of enthusiasm for something that I’m not happy with myself, and I won’t put my name against anything that is less than excellent!

What does the design process look like in simple terms?

I think identifying the competition and analysing what works and doesn’t work is a great place to start.

The design process can be very collaborative and I like to pick out bench-mark examples to shoot for so that everyone is on the same page and knows what is expected.

I think originality is great, and adding in as much of your business and product personality can really help you stand out. At the same time, learning from successful examples of design and other websites, and applying what makes them successful to your website is a good strategy.

The main hurdle is establishing the style, tone, messaging and overall layout of your primary landing page (homepage) and fine-tuning it to be as effective as possible. Once that is in place the rest flows quite easily.
