Background

A graduate in art and design in the 80s, Craig has now built up over 20 years of experience in graphic design media, ranging from video, to offset printing and training, leading to studio experience offering print, illustration and multimedia, and finally adding intranet and web design. Now as a freelance designer, Craig is able to offer clients expertise gained across many diverse media and projects, plus a wealth of contacts offering support services in print and e-commerce.

"I like to be involved with all business sizes," he adds: "It has been great over the years to have been involved with big corporate clients, but equally thrilling to be at the very beginnings of a company, to help shape its very concept as a business. These days it is more internet-focused solutions and websites that I tend to produce, but I admit I also still get a great buzz when I see something that I designed on a sign or something tangible in print, in the same way that I take great pride when a new website goes live."

Approach

"My approach is essentially to become part of the team. Initially we discuss what the aims of the company are, how graphic design will fit in with their objectives, and what design approach would be appropriate for this. Whether I go away and work on the design, or I work onsite is really up to my customer, and how important it is for me to be with the other team members, whether it be directors, staff, or advisors of any kind. Over time my clients ultimately trust me to design things remotely for them with the knowledge that I already understand both their ethos and their requirements fully. My aim is always to build long-term relationships based on trust and mutual understanding. At the end of the day we are both working to make the company more successful."
