About Angie Phillips
Graphic Design and Brand Consultant
I love working with people to DESIGN…!
To communicate your message visually, designing the media you need to build and enhance your business – getting you noticed and promoting your services and products – Great design that is not only effective but impressive and makes you say WOW! and you will!
I am a Graphic Design Consultant living in Essex. With friendly, down to earth advice. I will help and advise you and keep you in the loop throughout the design process with inspiring ideas and solutions, creating, developing and implementing your branding. Looking after your business and helping you to outshine your competition!
When working with a client, I become personally committed and ensure that I meet your professional objectives. I always take time to understand what you want to achieve. I like to work ‘with’ the client and always listen. For me its all about the client – and I do mean YOU!
Most importantly I like to think I’m fun to work with while maintaining a very professional work ethic. I enjoy helping both established and growing companies to manage their design requirements effectively. Especially relish working with new businesses who understand the value of good design. In effect, really helping to get them off the ground, generating sales and marketing their business.
As a Graphics & Branding Designer, for over 30 ish years, I have established a very high reputation for my expertise in a variety of design disciplines including brand development, magazine design, advertising, packaging construction and excellent print knowledge. I have worked with brands such as Harvey Spack Field, Carlsberg, Yardley, No7, Coca Cola and Cosmetics & Toiletries Ltd.
Studied Graphic Design at Great Yarmouth College of Art & Design, then worked for a print & packaging company before moving to a London W1 design consultancy, creating design and packaging for cosmetics, gifts & pharmaceuticals. From there I joined AssiDoman European Packaging Development, (Smurfitt Kappa) developing corrugated packaging and sales literature. I became freelance in 1995.
Believing that the best results are achieved by working ‘with’ you, the customer, listening to what you want and why. Using my knowledge and experience to achieve continuity and style throughout all media. I love the thrill of creating outstanding graphics that generate new energy, new customers and more sales.
Once having worked with you I continue to support my clients on social media and face to face. I have a strong belief in helping others grow and through networking will always introduce people who can mutually benefit each other and make great connections.
A.N.G. Creative Design Consultancy is my business, my reputation is built on delivering a comprehensive graphic design service, with integrity, energy, and enthusiasm with a strong business mentality. Every customer is different, has different ideas and services. Therefore creating unique, effective and impressive design, whether it is a logo or a leaflet, gives me such a buzz every time. And I LOVE IT!
A.N.G. – Art ’n Graphics, my own Brand story
Your ‘Brand’ should reflect a story and your principles, representing the quality and beliefs you would like to be known for. My own branding is based on the association of art and graphics with science nature and mathematics symbolised by the Fibonacci golden spiral.
Fibonacci believed that calculation was an art form; to him, it was a “marvellous” thing of beauty. He considered the art of calculation creating beautiful dimensions, bringing harmonious proportions in science, nature and art together expressed by mathematics. The golden spiral expands and reduces infinitely.
The golden spiral is incorporated into the ‘A’ of my logo and represents the way my father taught me calligraphy as a child, the ‘A.’ ‘N.’ ‘G.’ is pronounced to sound like ‘Annnggieeee’ (my driving instructor used to sing the Rolling Stones song to me!) and the halo and the devils (or dragon’s tail)… well any one who knows me well will understand! Search for me under “The Design Angel”, …always wicked design and as the saying goes ‘the devil is in the detail’. The purple is for the highest chakra, and intuition.. and I love chocolate! The recent introduction to my brand palette is a touch of orange, opposite to purple on the colour spectrum signifying diversity and as a chakra, governing creativity and self-expression. And it looks good!
All these elements come together to form a concept which perfectly reflects my vision, my passion and interests and therefore my brand personality and principles.
It’s not just about creating a piece of design but delivering a work of art to communicate your message visually, inspire, attract and achieve results.
When not working, I scuba dive in the UK & hotter waters. Recently learnt to ski!I When I have the time I enjoy writing my design blog and love networking. I read science fiction fantasy, crime and historical novels. I’m a huge fan of Erasure and 80’s music, soft rock and ballads but can’t sing. I love dragons and hate brussels sprouts!
I would love to hear from you...
