About

I’m based in Melksham, Wiltshire, in the UK. I’ve been in the industry for over 35 years and a freelance graphic designer since 1987.  That said, I’m continually looking for new ideas, techniques and tools so that I can improve what I offer.

I create innovative and eye-catching design to match the clients brief. I personally produce artwork, manage and arrange production for Corporate Visual Identities, all forms of Print and Digital MediaExhibition and Display and Websites for all types of businesses. I also provide Web Hosting and Email services.

I like to build trust-based, professional working relationships with clients providing a high-quality, personal design service. I’m happy to work on small one-off jobs through to larger multi-disciplined projects. I have a wide range of trusted, quality suppliers or I can work with a client’s existing suppliers. All produced and delivered on time and to budget.

Visual Identity

Corporate Identity is how your business is perceived from the first telephone enquiry to delivering the final invoice. It’s a customer’s experience of dealing with you.

Your Corporate Visual Identity is made up of the visual elements of your Corporate Identity.  Your logo, your colour scheme, the style of your marketing materials, your signs, vehicle livery, your website.

Maybe you need an identity for a new company with a distinctive logo and branding that reflects the business’s values and communicates them to your clients or customers.

You may have an existing identity that’s tired and needs refreshing and bringing up to date. Maybe you need to extend your existing identity and manage it to work consistently in new areas and in new media.

Or maybe you have a logo that you’re perfectly happy with but has only been produced as a low resolution master. You need it to be used at larger sizes and in different media so a new high quality master is required.

I can design, provide all artwork and produce and manage a complete Corporate Visual Identity for your business. Thus ensuring that your image is consistently and professionally applied to all the different types of media that you use to communicate.

Print and Digital Media

With the internet the dominant force in marketing it has always been predicted that we will all have paperless offices. We are all still waiting!

Traditional forms of printed marketing materials such as business cards and brochures now play a supporting role to a company’s online presence. However, they are are still relevant in their own right. Digital print is now a serious alternative to traditional ink based printing, not just for small quantities but increasingly larger print runs.

I design, produce the artwork and arrange production for print and digital formats such as: Brochures, all types of Business Stationery, Leaflets, Flyers, Presentations, Mailers, Press, Magazine and online Advertising, Computer Illustrations and Digital Image Retouching.

Web

Website design has changed and evolved radically since the mid 1990’s. Then the internet was the subject of immense curiosity but nobody was prepared to put any money into it (apart from London).

The web is finally realising its full potential and is the go to medium for marketing. Most commercial companies have a web presence in some shape or form and the capabilities of modern websites have expanded to the point where virtually anything is possible, if you can afford it!.

I design and arrange production for: Websites, E-commerce, Online Presentations, Website Management and E-mail and Web Hosting.

Costs

 Every project is different so I don’t have a specific price list. As a rough guide I charge £60.00 per hour plus costs and I’m VAT registered.

I like to have a no obligation discussion to get a good idea what is being looked for, what is expected and also get an idea of timescales and what the budget is . If a client has a fixed amount they wish to spend we can explore how much can be done within that cost.

I will then produce a quotation based on the discussion. If the project goes ahead and the quotation is accepted then the quoted price won’t change unless the brief or specifications change. If changes are required the quotation will be revised.

I will handle as much, or as little, of a project as required. I have trusted suppliers that I work with on a regular basis and produce excellent work. If you have your own existing suppliers then I am quite happy to work with them.

Have a look at my Terms of Business.

We have 2 sides to our business under 1 Limited Company – One Off Services Ltd, Colin sorted us out 2 logos along with our promotional literature, he took time to listen to our needs (not easy when both sides of the business are so different) and make recommendations before designing everything to suit us. We are very grateful.

Colin recreated our logo after we bought MapsWorldwide.com. While there was nothing wrong with the existing logo, we only had small, low res versions of it and they weren’t good enough for our new website, nor for printing. We’re now the proud owners of high res versions and have the CMYK and RGB codes to recreate them in print and on our website.

Liese Betts, Mapsworldwide.com

Colin did a fabulous job in rebuilding our website for us when we had been badly let down by a previous supplier. His simplicity of approach, skill at what he does and his overwhelming desire to always go the extra mile means that I would recommend his website services without hesitation.

Peregrine Nicholls, Wessex Biomass
