Grow your small business
through creative marketing
Need some help to grow your small business?
If you are a small business owner who is getting to grips with publicising their business, look no further. In today’s visually aware & technology savvy society, small business owners often need to stand out with a professional brand, a top class experience, an engaging website and social media accounts that convert to real customers. Finding the time to do all of this, have a life & run a business can seem overwhelming. As a freelance graphic designer and freelance marketing expert, I’m here to help solve this problem cost-effectively.
With such a wealth of platforms and publications today, as an entrepreneur it can be difficult to decide which are most appropriate for your business. Together we will break things down into bitesize chunks and put together a simple marketing strategy that will meet your business objectives - it could include anything from print advertisements through to running a launch party with social media influencers or a video introduction to your business. I am available for as little as one hour or for full day hire.
Social Media Content Creation & Training
Are you a small business owner who is struggling to keep ontop of your marketing? I work with a wide range of small businesses to create unique, branded and captivating social media content that helps to raise your profile online amongst new and existing clients. I can use my professional design software to create custom branded graphics, set up canva templates and help you plan and implement your marketing strategy.
Graphic Design & Branding
Once I get to know you and your brand, it's time to bring it to life visually. As a degree qualified and experienced graphic designer, I can create custom logos, a visual style and other marketing collateral for your business such as popup banners and flyers, signage or web and social media graphics. It saves you the headache of working with multiple freelancers, design agencies or marketing agencies - I wear both hats so there's only one person to deal with.

I offer consultation sessions tailored to your needs.
I can style websites using platforms such as Wix and Shopify. I come at websites with a marketing & design eye. While I'm not a coder, I can hlep you to more successfully communicate with your end client and
ensure your offering is clear & concise. I'll also visually style your site in a way that is professional and visually impressive.
Brands I've worked with
I designed the logo and brand identity for TruYou Yoga in 2019. Julie & I met for coffee and I learnt all about the goals for the new direction she was taking her business. I then translated this into a logo & visual style, styled a Wix website for her and created social media & flyer advertisements to help target her East Belfast audience.
I have been heavily involved with the marketing of this choir since day one. I designed the brand identity and subsequently wrote & implemented their marketing strategy. I continue to manage their marketing on a weekly basis including running key Facebook campaigns. I also created all promotional designs for the choir and set up their wordpress website
Sandhill House came to me with an existing logo/icon but no wider visual styling and brand guidelines (such as a set colour palette, typography and photography style).
I did the copywriting for their squarespace website and re-styled it in line with their new visual styling. I then created a series of advertisement graphics and a mail chimp campaign for use on social media for an upcoming launch campaign and helped the owner take her first steps in publicising her business through social media marketing.
I was responsible for the marketing & design for Catalyst until I went self employed in 2019. This included working on all associated marketing of their high profile events such as the Invent Awards and The Future Of Work Summit. My daily work included social media marketing, writing press releases, designing graphics & liasing with external suppliers such as videographers and printers to ensure the brand is reflected in the most professional way possible.
