An affordable alternative to a graphic design agency in Staffordshire

If you’re on the hunt for a Staffordshire graphic design agency, or one further afield, it’s always worth considering working with a freelance graphic designer. I can help you to develop a logo which reflects your business or product, create band guidelines to ensure a consistent, professional look, and design a range of print and digital materials.  

Branding & graphic design

I offer a unique alternative to a graphic design agency in Staffordshire

Branding and design

Developing a brand which stands out from the competition doesn’t have to come with a graphic design agency price tag. 

From business cards and stationery, to brochures and prospectuses, I can design whatever you need, and my experience as a trained journalist also means I can proofread or write your copy too! 

One of the benefits of working with a graphic design agency is that you usually get a few people working on your project, who all have different skills. This can, however, push up the price of the project, due to the costs associated with running an agency using a large team of staff. The downside to working with a freelance graphic designer is that usually they don’t have knowledge beyond their core skillset. This means that while they can design a fantastic-looking website, they don’t know how to code it.  

Some key benefits of working with me instead of another graphic design agency in Staffordshire are:

  • I’m a freelancer and don’t have high office and staff overheads to pay, meaning I can pass that added value on to my clients
  • I’m multi-disciplined, which means I don’t need to outsource any skills because I can research, write, design and develop a website – as well as run a marketing campaign to attract new customers

Do you need a freelance illustrator for your project?

Bespoke illustrations are a great way to draw attention and make your business stand out. We’ve been seeing a few illustration trends in 2020. To name a few:

Hand drawn images are becoming more prevalent in promotional materials, merchandise and web design. This shows a more human-centred approach to marketing, as more businesses realise that people need to ‘feel’ and trust a brand, rather than being targeted with forceful sales tactics.

Drawings using clean lines, like vector illustrations, continue to be popular and can be easily made smaller or larger without pixelation.

Illustrations using bright, neon colours are also trending, now that many social media platforms have a ‘dark mode’ viewing option.

Am I the right freelance graphic designer for you?

Kirsty Nelms marketing consultant portrait

Google “graphic design agency Staffordshire” and you’ll find plenty of great companies out there. My services are best suited to small to medium sized businesses who have a more limited budget, but still want excellent quality and scope to expand. 

You don’t have to be based in Staffordshire to use my services, but if you would like to have the option of meeting face-to-face, then I’d ask to keep the meeting within 90 miles of Rugeley, Staffordshire, where I’m based.  

If you are planning to refresh your marketing and build a fully-integrated strategy, I’m a great choice. I have skills as a journalist, copywriter, digital marketer, graphic designer and web developer, which allows me to see the whole picture and bring fresh ideas to the table.  

I may not be the best fit if:

  • You have a very large business with an expansive marketing budget which requires a dedicated team to run 24/7
  • You need a constant stream of design materials for a multinational campaign
  • You have a highly complex project in mind
  • You just want to get something designed quickly, and you’re not that fussed about the quality

Good design is an investment

If you have a project that is going to require a whole team of people working on it, then be prepared to pay the higher price tag. Good design is an investment in your business and its reputation, and reputation is everything. 

There are a lot of fantastic, highly talented freelance graphic designers out there, but there are also a lot that lack the knowledge and experience to deliver a certain quality. No matter who you choose to work with, please don’t put the reputation of your business in the hands of a cheap, inexperienced designer – it could have a longer damaging effect. 

Here are some of the graphic design services I offer

If you have a project and you would like help with something which is not on the list below, please get in touch and I’ll be happy to take a look at the brief.
