How can I help?

March 2020

These are troubling, unsettling times. I'd like to help in the best way I can: Creatively. While we all make our way through very much uncharted territory I'm here to listen and give expression to your ideas, as well as share some of my own.

Here are a few small ways I have helped some of my clients stay in touch and engage with their audience, whoever and wherever they may be.

Instagram stories

For The Forge

Recently I worked with The Forge Bristol, providing creative direction for the promotion of their busy programme of workshops and events. We created a look and feel for their Instagram Stories that focused on the lifespan of each event: from building momentum beforehand to documenting afterwards. At a glance, followers could be inspired, informed or book tickets.

Squarespace

For The BodyWorks Project

Squarespace is an excellent online option for many small businesses because it allows you to get a good-looking website up and running pretty sharpish, and gives one almost total control over design and content. But it is still difficult to get just right and having a design eye overseeing the project is essential. The BodyWorks Project drafted me in to design and build their site in Squarespace to fit the branding I developed.

Small is beautiful

A micro site for Vita Stores

Not every website needs to be a whopper. I recently built a three page site for Vita Stores, a zero-waste, plastic free refill kitchen shop in Whitstable, Kent. Small but beautifully to the point and with rich imagery, Vita Stores makes an immediate impact with a very small footprint. Even a refresh of an existing site can generate new interest in your work.

Copywriting

If you like the way I write, speak to me about bashing your wordy content into shape. I can help you edit, write or rewrite content that speaks directly, plainly and creatively to your audience.

Illustration and hand lettering

I have posted a few examples of illustration work I've done in recent months here. Drop me a line if your virtual walls are a little plain and need some spot illustrations or custom lettering jobs seen to.

Drop me a line

Get in contact if you'd like to discuss ideas. We can make great things happen with small, powerful tools. I'm open to all kinds of budgets right now in a bid to help people get their grand schemes off the ground.
