Freelance, consultancy and cover work for businesses

Services for Marketing and Non-Design Businesses

If you regularly need imagery and creative elements producing for your social media channels or advertising then I can work on a retainer basis to produce materials for you. There are many possibilities and solutions and a retainer suits an ad hoc, flexible and speedy model to support your working week. The number of hours per month can be negotiated and therefore factored in to my own schedule with work, if I know I am to dedicate a given number of hours per week or month for retainer work then I do not need to schedule as much freelance work in the month. If you are business that doesn't benefit from a highly visual business product such as law, accountancy or administration I can generate visual elements that can benefit your social media and advertising needs.

Services for Digital Media & Design Businesses

If you are a digital media or design business and experience the 'three busses come at once' scenario with client work, then I can help with the outsourcing of work as either freelance or retainer. I like to think I have a good moral compass so be reassured that your clients remain your clients. I would rather maintain a regular relationship and be relied upon by other similar like-minded businesses than gain a new client.
