What’s holding you back?

Hiring a graphic designer to develop your branding is an invaluable investment. Of course I would say that as I’m a designer(!) but good branding is more than simply making things ‘pretty’ and can be critical to the success of your business.

Did you know for example that information that is communicated visually is retained up to six times longer than just the written word alone? Plus it can really grab your audience’s attention and increase their level of interest, helping them to truly understand what it is you’re trying to tell them.

So what is holding you back from hiring a graphic designer to develop your branding?


Is it that you’re too busy and are worried the whole process will be a hassle?

I pride myself on making the process easy and keeping an honest and open dialogue. I’ll talk you through the process step-by-step, and am always easy to contact if you need me – so I can quickly answer any queries and let you get back to focusing on your business. In fact, don’t just take it from me, here is what one of my clients had to say about this:

“Joy is professional but has the human touch which is vital if you need someone to guide you through complex ideas and options. Her ability to explain what she is doing, why and what the end result will be has been the thing that has made this whole process a much lighter task to deal with.”


You’ve worked with designers before and they didn’t seem to answer your brief.

By asking a heap of questions at the beginning of every project, and more importantly listening to everything you have to say, I guarantee to get to the very nuts and bolts of what makes your business tick and what your customers value about what you do / what they need to know. Nobody knows your business better than you and at each stage of the project I’ll listen to your feedback, as your input is valuable to the success of the project.


You’re not sure how much logos and branding really matter.

In a nutshell, a professional, memorable logo is the key design element of your organisation. So it is vital that your logo conveys exactly the right image and reflects the essence of what you do, in order to strike a chord with your specific target audience. A well-designed logo will help ensure a strong understanding of your unique appeal and, when used with effective branding, it can capture the imagination of your audience and convince them that you are their only option!


Please take a look through my online portfolio and if there is a specific type of project you’d like to know more about, please get in touch and I’ll send you relevant samples, showing the level of quality I’d bring to the brief.
