Manchester freelance creative services
Help me help you with your creative design and production needs. I love to collaborate with like-minded people by offering my services on a freelance basis.
You could say I am cheap
Well maybe if I was advertising myself on any of the freelance designer websites. Now I am not precious and I do see that these websites have a place. My choice is not to engage in projects with a minimal or unrealistic budget as nobody benefits.
However, if you have a freelance opportunity do call me direct on 07740 083325 or drop me a message here. I offer highly competitive rates to both agencies and businesses with in-house marketing departments.

The freelance landscape
Advertising, Marketing and Design Agencies have been utilising the freelance pool since the beginning of time. They need cover when permanent staff are off or after landing a big account.
A more recent development is a direct commission, where business calls upon freelance designers for short-term or one-off projects. Add to this flexible working now being commonplace and it is easy to see why freelance is becoming more appealing to all parties.
You could say I am either very experienced or old. I’ll leave that up to you.
I am not going to spout out what I have achieved here. Let’s just say it covers a whole lifetime of practical, hands-on, front line experience. Over the past 35 years or so I have managed, designed and produced material covering a wide array of collateral. From corporate/brand identity to packaging and retail promotion. So if you have a freelance opportunity I would be happy to hear from you.
Digital Artwork & Reproduction (DAR)
Firstly I was trained to produce artwork by hand. Yes, that was a thing back in the day and one that holds great benefit to the accuracy of my work.
I also trained as a Film Planner/Platemaker (Print Reproduction). I am highly knowledgeable when creating, checking and producing print production artwork.
Oh, and did I mention I have DAliM TWiST? Don’t worry I also utilise all of the latest desktop applications too.
Design For Print
Stationery, leaflets, flyers, brochures, magazines, packaging and POS (Point-of-Sale). You could say everything print related.
Corporate & Brand Identity
This is a bit of a specialist area that I find challenging with great reward. There is nothing quite like coming up with a name, designing the identity, defining brand guidelines and then implementing it across varying mediums.
Whether a series or one space advertisement, I design for both print and digital formats delivering creative, action invoking design.
Signage & Livery
Being able to design legible, eye-catching and balanced signage and livery is the first step. Understanding that production and application are where the cost lays allows me to deliver a successful and cost-effective design.
Need some copy, an infographic or images for your website, a presentation or printed material? My content creation will bring your marketing to life and help you get your message over.
Developing on the WordPress platform in combination with a progressive framework allows me to generate creative, functional and reliable websites and back-office applications. I leave bespoke coding to coders where ongoing adjustments would need to be made inline with WordPress’s debug and update cycles. When the website is completed anyone with basic WordPress knowledge will be able to take control. Of course, if there is a need for ongoing management this is also available.
