what you get with pinecone penguin

Ideas

First and foremost, a good design begins as a good idea. Or ten. Or a hundred. The way I work, you will have unlimited and varied choice on those crucial early steps.

Creativity

Taking these ideas to the next level, I will work upon a variety of examples and mock-ups. This is to give my clients as much creative choice as possible through the design process.

Research

What's your brand? What aesthetic are you after? What is tried and tested? There is a mountain of research to be done to better define your brief, and I can help you.

Attention*

*To detail. For me, a project is not completed until the client is 100% satisfied. Therefore I will always be available to update and tweak any designs in the future.

Implementation

Perhaps you already know what you're after, and you just need a designer to piece it all together. No problem. I enjoy working in tandem with my clients to ensure a perfect end product.

Communication

And of course, every step along the way I will keep in touch. Showing progress, sharing feedback and ensuring all my clients are kept in the loop.

"I propose to speak about fairy-stories, though I am aware that this is a rash adventure. Faƫrie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold."

J.R.R. Tolkien, on Fairy-Stories
