Branding services – logo, business cards, letterheads

Don’t have a logo?  No problem.  Nor did David Speight Photography, Lifting Inspection Services or Richard Smith Tiling.  I created the logo for them and then customised the design to suit the logo.  With Lifting Inspection Services, they also wanted this logo adapting to business cards, letterhead and a flyer.  Have a look at the project to see more.

Can you create me a logo and some business cards?

Do you design and build the website?

I do.  If you are for instance a designer by trade, you can do the design yourself and I can just create the website.  However, usually, clients like me to do the design and build of the site.
