I've been designing for as long as I can remember! My best friend Zoë and I were constantly drawing throughout school... anything from buildings, logos, shoes, clothes to posters! Zoë is now a successful artist and illustrator, and I still love creating designs!
After university I got my first job as a junior designer. I spent the next 4 years working my way up to the role of senior designer and then in January 2000 I set up Eau Rouge!
Since then, I have worked with many local, national and international companies spanning a range of industries including, motor, medical, property development, furnishings, education, law, recruitment, wellbeing & beauty.
Keeping clients happy has always been my number one priority. I work hard to make sure my design ideas bring something extra to your literature and promotions. I have been lucky enough to stay busy for the last 17 years purely through repeat work, recommendations and introductions from existing clients. And I think good communication, fair pricing and a zest for design has given many would-be clients the confidence to use me rather than a large agency.
As I charge an hourly rate (£60 per hour +VAT), I don't actually quote for specific jobs, I give an estimate on the amount of hours it is likely to take instead. This means I only charge for the work I've done, rather than picking a figure out of the air at the beginning of the project. This certainly works out more cost-effective for you! I do only charge for the time I take to work on a project, so if it ends up taking less time than I've estimated, you pay less!
Working with me, you get agency level creativity, without the overheads.
I have great contacts in the fields of Printing, Illustration, Photography, Copy writing, Structural packaging design, eCommerce, Trademarking and Marketing, so I can easily take on whole projects for you.
Please get in contact if you would like to discuss a design project, I look forward to hearing from you.
Managing Director, Eau Rouge Design.
