Freelance work undertaken

Brand solutions

Having a background in Brand and it’s internal and external applications, means that we understand how Brand is not just simply a visual aid to a company but in fact what the company is and does throughout all its dealings.

We can undertake projects such as:

Brand Creation

Simple Brand Identity
Led by your Brand values, ambitions and character.
Full Branding pack
A comprehensive package including logos, usage, variations and templates for internal and external purposes.
Corporate Identity
Ideal for external applications, a corporate identity pack guides proper use of your Brand.

Flexible working

The ability to work as an associate freelancer generally means that we can offer great flexibility by being able to work directly for a client or on behalf of creative agencies needing a high level of skills. Work can be done in-house or off-site dependant on requirements. This flexibility ultimately means a cost effective solution for you.

Basic Website Creation

Website Graphic Design
Able to design user friendly web interfaces.
CMS Driven Websites
Ideal for the smaller business, we can offer a Content Managed Website starting from as little as £495.

A Trusted Associate

A rising business model is having trusted Associates on hand, to supplement an existing core staff. This negates the need to take on the expense of a full-time member of staff and all the pit-falls associated with it.

A number of agencies use us as a trusted supplier, but we always look to make more associations with creative agencies who require trusted periodical work. Be rest assured in the knowledge that we deliver the highest quality in whatever project work we undertake.

Deadlines are a fact of life, but you may not always have the time resource in-house to be able to meet those demands. This is where a trusted associate can be most valuable, you can factor in as you would a normal member of your team.
