I’m Owen Fletcher and I live with my wife Helen and two children Isabella & Charlie in the village of Bransgore, right on the edge of the New Forest. I’ve worked as a freelance web & graphic designer since 2009 and before that I worked in-house for an independent business in Lymington.
As a designer and coder (full-stack designer) you can get the best of both print and digital marketing when working with me. I can create logos, print advertising & other corporate branding with your digital presence always in mind. It also means that I have a really good understanding of how that branding can be represented online and if our creative ideas will work with the technology available suiting your budget.
What can I do for you?
Corporate Branding - Every business needs a unique and individual identity – I have broad-reaching experience in logo design and can help you come up with a new logo design for your business based on your own ideas/sketches or my interpretation of how your business could be represented. Once you’ve got a design that you’re happy with we can extend the brand concept to different print media as you need, for example: business cards, letterheads (or digital versions for your invoicing software) & compliments slips. Through my trade contacts I can arrange printing of these items too, all at very competitive prices.
Print Advertising - Now you have a new business identity, it's time to advertise - I can help you design all types of print media from simple leaflets and flyers to brochures, guidebooks, banners and large scale printing for exhibition stands.
These items can vary hugely in cost, depending on type, quality and quantity so contact me directly to discuss your requirements.
Website Development - To have an online presence is equally important – for a smaller business having a simple “Shop Window” website is a great way to show potential customers exactly who you are and what you do in a professional manner. I can organise your company’s web address, hosting package and basic responsive website build to get you up and running.
Larger and more complex CMS based sites and e-commerce solutions give you access to a control panel with the ability to update and add content yourself; and are always priced on an individual basis. If you already have an initial brief and would like me to put together a quotation for you please email me or if you'd prefer to discuss your project in person we can meet up for a chat.
Other Services - As an established freelancer I have a good network of contacts within the local area that can help if your particular project develops in to something bigger. I work very closely with Sign IT in Lymington, and together we can organise any aspect of your branding requirements, from simple printed stationery and advertising to embroidered/logo’d clothing, shop-front / vehicle graphics and exhibition equipment. I also work with Peacock Computers, developing websites for them on a sub-contracted basis, they can also help with SEO, enterprise level email and have a very busy computer repair shop.
Why choose me?
It’s often tough choosing the right designer for your project – for starters, there’s lots of us to choose from! So when answering the question of whether using a freelancer like me is the right choice for you – I feel that there are several advantages to working closely with a single designer / developer, for instance:
- We'll tend to have a more personal working relationship, meaning you get a more understanding service.
- I have lower running costs and overheads than an agency & this saving gets passed on to you, meaning you receive better value for money.
- I can usually make a quicker start resulting in faster turn-around times, as I'm usually only focussing on a few projects at any one time.
- Any enquiries, questions and uncertainties you may have are all answered by me, not a salesperson or account manager.
- AND above all - As a Freelance Designer I need to be really good at what I do to keep you coming back!
