A Tobin Design
helping a growing business stand out
I offer freelance design services developing, brands for small to medium size businesses
offering graphics, identity, web and photography skills.
Armed with a Canon
You can often find me with a 50mm lens mounted on a Canon 5dmkiii. Being a teacher of photography I know a trick or two and you can have confidence that I double up well as a photographer, in addition to design.
Front-end and content
I know my way around a server and can implement your favourite CMS, transfer a site and manage your domain. I can customise a website’s front-end code to tailor your needs and can make beautiful graphics and banners to enhance your site.
Having worked as an artworker I can save you time and trouble when you take your ideas to print. I know my way around the Adobe suite and have produced many live projects—not just looking good on a laptop, but in your hands too.
Helping growing businesses
I’ve helped many business start out with a strong identity. It is so tempting for directors to try doing everything themselves at first—don’t skimp out of the design part. A strong identity gives you confidence to focus on running the business.
I work as a IT specialist part time and as a design, photography and broadcasting teacher for ESL students the rest of the time. I also moonlight as a musician and freelance designer.
The hardest job of all is being a parent though! Two young daughters and a wife to support. The hardest but most rewarding job of all.
James explained the potential of portraying an image that accurately reflected my business model, and that appealed to my market audience.
Since working with James my business income has increased by around 20%.
“I had a very basic idea for my logo (back of napkin basic)! James very quickly turned it in to a distinctive brand identity, also incorporating the product idea. I have worked with James before on a previous project. He has designed my business cards, product labels and is working on the website.”
