What I can do to help Your Brand.

Whether it is to update your existing brand or to begin a new journey on a new start up i can help. I have years of experience within design and I believe being a well rounded designer I ca make your vision come true much more easily that have multiple people invested and things getting lost in translation.

I am extremely motivated but I am aware this is your idea had creation and I'm not looking to take over that. I am an excellent listener and pride myself on having a great understanding of other people and their likes and dislikes very early on into projects. (possibly my years in stand up comedy has made me almost intuitive to others)

 

Things I can do for you:

  • Logo design

  • Graphic / prints

  • Illustrations

  • Factory contacts and advice

  • Garment design

  • Technical garment packs

  • UX design

  • UI design

"Yes zara this all sounds great" However I have some things I'm just not good at or qualified or experienced enough to do for you, and I would rather be upfront and honest about those things.

Things I can not do for you as a freelance designer:

 

  • Blog posts & social media - as a freelancer I work with multiple clients so this would only be possible for a full time position or as an in house designer.

  • Motion Graphics - I have a basic knowlage of this, and I am currently learning, however at this moment in time I don't believe my skills are at the level to offer this service to you as a freelance designer.

If this all sounds good for you I cant wait to hear from you and make your vision (with the added advise of an experienced designer) into a reality!
