A.N.G. Design Consultancy, delivering visual IMPACT – CREATING BUSINESS BY DESIGN
I like to think I’m fun and easy to work with, with while maintaining a very professional work ethic, and my testimonials will concur. I am personally committed to deliver design that is to my own high standards while ensuring I meet your professional objectives. Taking time to understand what you want to achieve, always listening and pre-empting problems and finding solutions you may not have thought about. For me it’s all about YOU!
I 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 and started my own business around 2009.
I strongly believe the best results are achieved by working ‘with’ you, the client, listening to what you want and why. I use 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 clients and more sales.
I continue to support 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. 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 needs. 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, slightly tongue in cheek… my own Brand story
Your ‘Brand’ should reflect a story and your principles, representing the quality and beliefs you wish 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 created beautiful dimensions and harmonious proportions in science, nature and art, 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 sense of humour and my love of symmetry and therefore my brand personality and principles.
Creating design that evolves into a work of art, communicating 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 brussel sprouts!
