6 July 2018
Looking for freelance graphic design services
CEB Creative offers can provide a variety of freelance graphic design services including; business stationary, brochures, leaflets, menus and signage.
I offer simple and budget-friendly freelance graphic design services for startups and small businesses. No job is too big or small and I can offer a complete and professional service for your business.
Aside from logos and branding, most businesses have a variety of promotional print materials that they use to market their business. CEB Creative offers the complete graphic design package for any new or existing business.
Sometimes professional graphic design can seem like an unnecessary expense especially with the number of DIY design programs out there. It’s important to remember that any form of communication you produce is a reflection of your company’s brand. You never get a second chance to make a great first impression so it’s important to make sure all your customer-facing materials convey the quality and integrity of your business. This is why investing in graphic design services can benefit your business greatly in terms of how it’s perceived by potential customers.
My process (in a nutshell)
All my projects follow a simple process which means fuss-free design.
Just like a logo design, having a clear idea of what your aims are for the marketing materials you create really helps. Do you want more sales, more social follows, more enquiries? It’s also important to think about how you’ll measure the success of any marketing material. If you hand out 150 leaflets how do you know how many of those resulted in a phone call or an email enquiry? Adding this like discount codes to marketing materials can help track success.
Planning & Research
I will look over your brief and conduct some visual research into the type of thing you want to produce. I’ll also check to see what your competitors are doing.
Content is key to a successful piece of marketing. I will need you to provide all the text and images for your print project. If you require help with image selection or sourcing and content writing this is something I can assist you with.
Mood Boards & Sketches
The creative process begins with mood boards which are a selection of found examples of the item you need. This helps me to gauge your creative preferences, likes and dislikes. Next up are some quick layout sketches which designers call scamps.
Initial Design Concepts
Once I have your creative feedback, I will get to work on some initial design concepts. We can review these together and narrow down the creative direction we want the project to take.
At this stage, we should have a strong idea of which designs we are going to develop from the initial concepts. I can now start to refine the design and include the approved content and images.
Proofing & Sign Off
This is very important as at this stage the design should be almost complete. This is a chance for you to check all the elements of the project including content and images. Don’t forget the spellings and grammar! I am a designer, not a copywriter so you are responsible for ensuring your content is correct.
This is the last step in the design process. During this stage, I will make the final design checks on all the elements and prepare them for print if required.
You may decide to have your items printed in which case I can provide a print quote. If you are using your design online or sourcing your own printing, I will supply the final finals directly to you in the appropriate formats.
A Little Extra
Once your project is complete, you may want to consider some of the other services I offer such as bespoke website design or Search Engine Optimisation.
