My name's Mark. I am a Graphic Designer born and raised in North Staffordshire, and I own and run designmark graphics ltd.
The thing is, I haven't been doing this forever. I spent a long time studying Physics before I caught the internet bug and began learning how to design web banners for forums and adverts.
I've been doing graphic design for five years now, and I stay on top of design trends to keep my work fresh, vibrant and full of eye-catching imagination. I'm largely self-taught but with a dash of formal education in the field too - it's given me a strong combination of technical expertise coupled with an original approach.
I love to design professional logos, websites and all the artwork that goes with them, as well as designs and layouts for printed stationery, which I can get great rates on for my customers. I'm also skilled at writing and editing copy so if you need someone to write the words to go with the images, I can help with this too. As I sometimes say to people, if it needs to look great and it needs to do a job, it needs to be designed by designmark.
That's pretty much all you need to know about me and my work; the rest you can learn if you meet me in person!
I’m a Graphic Designer based in North Staffordshire, and I love creating exciting, unique designs for the web and print. I’ve worked on lots of projects, from websites and logos to business cards, stationery and printed materials, so whether you need a design that's fresh and modern or personalised and fun, I'll work with you to create the right design and turn a great idea into a great identity.
And it's not just about the inspiration. I can also help you decide which services are most important for what you want to achieve, so that you get the best value for money and only pay for what you need.
When it comes to work for the internet, I build websites that achieve a good search ranking, meaning more people coming to your website and discovering your business or organisation. And I can get great prices for any print jobs that need to look great and be delivered quickly.
Hop over to the portfolio section of the site to see some examples of my work, then from there it’s just a short trip across to the contact page to get in touch.
The Designmark Graphics blog, no small amount of time in the making, is here! I'll be writing tutorials teaching you how to create great-looking graphics using freely available Open Source software, namely Inkscape and the GIMP. It's both an insight into what I do here and a valuable resource to study for technique and for new designers on a budget. You can go and start reading over on this page.
