A creative marketer with a can-do approach to helping small businesses to succeed.

About Me

After gaining a business degree and then 20+ years working in marketing, I decided to change tack and work for myself.  I now offer marketing and graphic design to small companies, helping business owners to grow or improve their business using a number of creative initiatives.  

 

My strength lies in a friendly, personal approach to understanding the challenges faced and coming up with solutions to fit any budget.  Whether you want help creating a marketing plan and implementing it, or just want a business card and brochure, I can help.

Not sure what you need and whether you can afford it? Why not get in touch for a chat and let's see how I can help you!

"Your efforts over the last few months have made some excellent improvements. The website visuals are vastly improved, the brand is much clearer, there's a lot more consistency, social media posts are better branded and more visual, I have loads of great marketing graphics (with consistent branding), image templates in Canva (I used them on the blog posts I put live recently), we've run a few paid advert tests, lots of copy improvements, target customer research and profiling, competitor analysis, back link building, and lots more. Thank you for all of these".

"Myself and my business partner had been working together for a couple of years establishing the foundations for our building company. We then reached the next stage of expanding so we considered building a website and trying to advertise ourselves but soon found trying to juggle that with running the business impossible. We started to look around and Amanda was recommended to us by one of our regular customers.

 

On our first meeting she came prepared with flyers, card and websites to look at, we felt like she understood what we were aiming for, was assertive and had plenty of great ideas. 

We knew instantly Amanda would be ideal for this aspect of helping our business grow.

 

Sharing the same work ethic and attention to detail as us, she designed and created our logo, website, flyers, business cards and handled the whole set up whilst keeping us very much involved with correspondence and video calls.

 

Amanda made the whole service very easy and we felt it was professional and we couldn’t be happier with the end results."

“Working with Amanda is a pleasant experience.  She listens to your needs and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the finished product.  Even answering emails while on holiday which she really shouldn’t do!  She redesigned our company logo and gave us good quality files to use in whichever capacity we need to. On top of designing our new business cards and letterheads that are just about to go to print.  Everything looks great and works well together to give us a good head start with our rebranding.  Highly recommended.”

"Setting up a new business and choosing a logo was a very daunting prospect. Thankfully Amanda put me totally at ease from the start, by taking the time to clearly understand my business, my ideas and my potential clients. She quickly pulled together a number of ideas and suggestions which we worked through until we came to a final logo design which she then used to create social media headers and email footer. I found Amanda to be professional, thorough and fun to work with. The logo created has captured the essence of my business and me in design and colour".

"Amanda has been kind enough to volunteer her design services for our community café and food waste initiative. She was extremely creative in designing a logo to reflect the concept of the café and was very helpful in tweaking it to our exact requirements, taking all our comments on board as well as using her own initiative. She has also designed leaflets and flyers for us, as well as vouchers to be used in the café. Often we have given her the loosest of briefs yet she has had the ability to understand our requirements and come up with designs that have exceeded our expectations. The fact that she has done all this work for us on an unpaid basis is testament to her good nature. She has played a key role in helping bring our café project to life and enabling us to communicate our messages effectively. I would recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking for a great designer as well as a lovely person to work with".
