I’m a graphic and brand identity specialist with over 25 years’ experience in designing for web and print.

I’m different from other designers because I’ll immediately make you feel at ease with the design process. As your one and only point of contact, I’m here to guide you through your design or marketing project from start to finish, explaining my approach in plain English and delivering a service that’s honest, simple and always professional.

Forget sharp suits, sky-high fees and empty promises – I work closely with my clients to create unique web and print designs that add value, personality and a contemporary feel to your brand. I’ve been providing sparkling creative design solutions to clients big and small from my home-based graphic design studio in Colchester, Essex since 1993.

I draw upon the skills of a talented collective of print, digital and marketing specialists who all have the passion and expertise to deliver exceptional results, regardless of your requirements.

When it comes to design

I offer agency-quality design services at very competitive prices.

When you work with me, you’ll get my undivided attention (along with my famed, and somewhat obsessive, attention to detail!). I’ll listen to your needs to make sure I can create exactly what you’re after.

The success of Design FX Studio has relied entirely on its incredible reputation. I can honestly say that my studio has grown almost exclusively through referrals from satisfied customers. I have developed enjoyable, long-standing relationships with my clients, many of whom have been with me since the beginning and still rely on me today.

When it comes to the web

It’s my job to design and develop a website that effectively showcases your brand identity and gives your stakeholders everything they’re looking for.

I have collaborated with the same developers since 2008 and we have produced many websites together throughout the last decade. It’s a finely-tuned partnership, and one that relies on the ease of communication between the both of us – and, of course, their ability to produce beautiful, functional websites that exceed all expectations.

All the websites we’ve produced are fully responsive and designed to work perfectly across all major web browsers and smaller devices. They’re a great investment for clients who want maximum exposure from a platform that’s designed to keep up with the latest user trends.

When it comes to print

I have a deep understanding of all things print and a passion for high-quality print at great prices. My knowledge of this industry spares you from any technical worries and ensures that your printed materials reach your doorstep on time and within budget.

From collecting and assessing initial quotes to inspecting the finished item, I will manage the entire printing process for you from start to finish. Because I have strong connections with all quality printers in the Essex area and beyond, I know exactly who to go to for the right results – and  you’re guaranteed fully tailored support from a skilled print management partner who understands your vision.

 

A little bit of blurb about me…

Away from design, my passions (when not hard at work glued to my iMac) are photography, enjoying the sights and cultural delights travelling around the country in our beloved caravan ‘Bubbles’, trying very hard to get fit (really trying!) and entertaining friends and family of a weekend having BBQs and cocktail parties!
