Graphic design for small businesses

Add a little pizzazz.

From your socials, to your business cards, to your website – every customer interaction, leaves a lasting impression.

As a graphic designer, my role is to make that impression a good one and ensure you communicate effectively. I'll help inject personality into your brand, tell customers why you are so awesome and make you stand out.

For new projects, the best place to start is with brand guidelines. They are the most valuable business asset you'll own. They guide you on customer experience, market position, and appearance – logo, fonts, colours and everything else.

Don't panic if you don't have any, I can help you out.

Got some burning questions?

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any jobs/internships available?

I work alone, and handle the design and photography aspects of my work. I do, however, work with freelancers to supplement projects where I need specialised skills. So, if you're a freelancer and you think you'd be able to offer me valuable support, I would love to connect. Send me an email or get in touch on the contact page.

I have a question that's not answered here. How can I contact you?

The best way to get in touch with me is on my contact page, or just shoot me a call. I aim to get back to you within 48 hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-4:30pm AEST, excluding scheduled holidays).

What's your hourly rate?

I don't feel that hourly rates are a good indication of the overall value of design/branding projects, designers work at a different paces, so it's difficult to judge. I'll outline exactly what I'll do upfront and provide a price according to the scope.

With any project, if you decide to extend the scope during the project, no sweat, I'll send an estimate for additional work and on approval, add it to your final bill.

Do you accept PayPal?

Yes, we take payment via Stripe, but not PayPal. Bank transfers are still our preferred method as I don't have to pass on the fees to you at final invoice, but it does give you more security and the option to pay with credit card.

Why do you require a 50% deposit before we can get started on my project?

My time is valuable, and to enable all my clients to benefit from my services, I have timeslots for projects. This is a fair system that keeps existing clients happy and makes sure I can keep you happy too. A 50% deposit and signed contract books you into my calendar and ensures you receive my full attention.

What are your payment terms?

All branding, design and photography projects are split into two payments. A 50% deposit to get you into my schedule. The final invoice is due on completion.

On occasions, I am happy to negotiate (where possible) payment terms that suit both parties.

Where are you based?

I work remotely from my office in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. If you're in Newcastle or the Hunter Valley, let's meet for coffees. If you're out of the area, we'll bend the laws of time to set up video calls to chat through your project.

How do we start a project?

We love welcoming new people into our little Snapper family. Kick-off your shoes, thongs or flip flops, grab a coffee or an inspiration juice (beer/wine) and say hi via email, phone or through our contact form on our site. Once we have an idea of what you need, we'll shoot through a contract and invoice. We require a 50% deposit on all projects or a purchase order for the full amount, so we can book you into one of our calendars.
