We've been providing agency style graphic and website design to businesses in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, Hertfordshire and London regions for over a decade.

What we do

My name is Dan Haines. As a graphic designer / creative consultant, I help my clients engage with target audiences and reach out to more customers with carefully structured visual communications. From unique logo design or company re-branding, to well designed brochures and flyers, or mobile and tablet friendly websites. I produce a wide variety of artwork and illustrations for printed literature, online digital marketing, exhibition stands and promotional signage.

I collaborate with what I consider to be some of the industry's best service providers to offer full packages (including back-end web developers, web hosts, photographers, printers and product manufacturers), while carefully overseeing the whole process from design to completion and ensuring projects meet timescales and budget.

Who for

I work directly with growing local businesses in the Southend-on-Sea and Essex area, Hertfordshire and London Home Counties. I also provide 'design on demand' services to in-house marketing departments and digital agencies across the country, bringing creative ideas, valuable design & artworking skills, and over twenty years of commercial know-how to the table, without the big agency fees.

Here are just some of the clients we've had the pleasure of working with:

How much does it cost?

I understand that all businesses are different and have individual needs, so there are budget plans to suit all circumstances, whether it's an ongoing retainer or a simple one-off design. Due to the simplistic setup and minimal overheads, the hourly studio rate is about half the cost of the average creative agency.

Marketing departments

I also offer outsourced services as an extension to existing client or agency marketing teams. With favourable project rates and the ability to work on an ad-hoc basis, I provide a very simple and effective alternative to seeking full time employment candidates, and there are no employment agency fees.
