Let's talk about your next project!

I am very excited that you are considering working with me. I have built up a reputation with clients as reliable, friendly and easy to work with. I therefore won’t be surprised if you already have a good idea of what you want, nor will I be phased should you come to me with a blank canvas...
If you have a preferred deadline for your project, please let me know as part of your enquiry so I can first ensure my availability. I usually have a minimum of 2 weeks lead-time, otherwise I may need to include a rush fee.

If you also have a budget in mind, it would be useful to know so I can work out what I can provide for you within your limit. It also helps me identify serious business enquiries.
I dedicate a lot of time to each and every client and my prices are fixed from £25 GBP per hour according to demand.
Finally, don’t forget to include your own contact details, details of the person responsible for approvals and website address (if applicable). I look forward to working with you!

I look forward to speaking with you very soon!
Please note: My portfolio is my marketing tool.
I'm can be quite flexible in style, but please note that I will not provide free/spec work as a 'test' before you consider hiring me. I always require a deposit to secure your project dates and my time spent on the concept work stage. Please have a look to my portfolio before hiring me to make sure that I'm the right designer for your project.


It would help us get off to a flying start if you could consider the following in your enquiry. The more you can elaborate, the more effectively I will be able to gauge the workload, accurately quote for your brief and be able to create a design that will communicate your message effectively. Don't worry if you can't answer them all, it's just a starting point which might help you to flesh out your idea.
