Professional Logo Design Service in Lanarkshire, UK

Every business should have a logo. It's likely the first thing your potential customers will see. However, not all logos are made equal.

A good logo is simple and memorable. It will help you be different from your competitors, whilst remaining appropriate for your industry. It will work at any scale, from very small on a social media icon, to very large on signage or the side of a building. Finally, it should avoid trends so that it will last you a long time and not need to be changed or updated often.

Are you:
  • A small business?
  • An independent or freelance consultant?
  • Starting a new business?
and you:
  • don't know where to begin with design?
  • are worried about costs?
  • aren't happy with your current logo or branding?
...let me help you

I provide a straightforward, collaborative and worry-free logo design service. We'll work together to achieve a great outcome, taking your ideas on board and communicating frequently to ensure you know what's happening at every stage of the project.

How I can help your business

Although my primary focus is on logo design, I can also help you with other design projects in order to keep your branding consistent, which in turn can help you attract new customers and retain your existing ones.

An updated logo and a poster design for a local nursery

Overtown Community Nursery and Toddlers is a local, independent nursery and toddlers group run as a charity. They needed a poster and flyer design to advertise for the 2020/21 school year. However, their logo was not in a suitable format for high quality printing, so as part of the project, I re-worked their logo and provided them with suitable files for use on social media, as well as for the print projects and any future uses they will have.

As a person coming out of full time employment to set up my own business, I had absolutely no idea where to begin with Graphic Design and so thankfully I came across Dave!

Dave explained the whole process and made it extremely easy to understand every step that was taken. This all culminated in a logo and stationary that I am really proud to use.

I highly recommend Dave and will definitely be using his services again in the future!

Dave recently helped us at Overtown Community Nursery by designing a fantastic, eye catching poster/leaflet to promote our new opening hours.

With his knowledge & skills Dave also reworked our current logo which allows it to be used on letterheads & social media more effectively.

We couldn't recommend Dave highly enough, easy to work with, great ideas, attention to detail and the whole process was quick & smooth.

Thank you!

About Me

I'm a UK based logo and graphic designer. I live in Lanarkshire in the UK, but work with businesses worldwide to help them solve their problems using the power of great design.

After a 15 year career in IT, I started to learn Photoshop as a side project in order to improve processing of my family photos. The more I learned, the more I became interested in the many things the software could do, and the possibilities it offered. This led me to develop an interest in design and to want to pursue this as a career. Ever since I started, I have totally immersed myself in the world of graphic design, reading books, and taking many courses. I've gotten deeply involved in the design community, and have become friends with several industry experts.

Design is all about solving problems, not just making things look good. This is one of the aspects I love most about it. The knowledge and skills gained in my IT career translate well to solving problems using design.

I offer a fully bespoke logo design service to small businesses, consultants, freelancers, entrepreneurs and start-ups who need a new identity. I also provide a re-design service for businesses who have an existing identity which needs some attention in order to make it work better for them as their business grows.

I'm passionate about all things to do with logo design & branding, and am inspired by the work of awesome graphic designers of the past and present. These include the likes of Paul Rand, Michael Beirut, Aaron Draplin and David Airey, as well as legendary design agencies like Pentagram and Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv.

Why work with me?

Unlike some logo designers, I take the time to understand your business, your story, goals, industry and target audience. The time taken to discuss these with you, as well as do my own research, enables me to provide a high quality professional logo design service that will provide you with a great result for a reasonable investment.

The process I follow is made up of 5 main steps: Discovery, Research, Design, Presentation and Finalisation. During this collaborative process, I'll work with you and keep you informed throughout. To find out more about the process, head over to my logo design service page.

If required, I also offer additional design services to complement, extend and make use of your brand identity. These include business cards, stationary, flyers, posters and more, as well as social media graphics. Once the print design part of the project is complete, you'll receive print ready files to arrange printing by yourself. Alternatively, assistance with print suppliers can be provided if you'd prefer. I can also help if you need motion graphics such as logo animation or video titles/graphics.
