about >

I am an experienced and versatile graphic designer providing freelance conventional and digital graphic design and related services to government agencies, SMEs and organisations of all sizes who see benefit in a supportive designer who brings a marketing / communications-focussed approach.

Resourceful and creative, I bring graphic design and more - with value adds including: project management, campaign creative, copywriting, sourcing images, illustration, print management, web design, sourcing third party suppliers. 

I take an organised, partnership-orientated approach to every client and project, first understanding and adapting to their unique needs and issues, then offering ideas, advice and strategic suggestions that help deliver a succesful outcome.

I really enjoy the end-to-end process, meeting the different challenges that each project presents - big or small - and developing ongoing relationships that assist organisations and individuals achieve their goals - whether it is a new or stronger brand or product image, more sales or a better informed public.

For a no-obligation chat or meeting to discuss and explore the possibilities for your next project, call me on 0419 379 511.

Grant has the unique skill of being able to zero in on just what you want. Having worked with Grant for the past seven years on multiple local and national projects within a major teaching hospital and a not for profit organisation. I have always found him to be insightful, knowledgeable, proactive and great to work with. Grants time management, access and turnaround time is remarkable. He is always aware of the customer’s timelines and commitments and delivers the product on time and within budget.

Implementing our new BOPP range over 17 product lines has been a huge project.  Grant has played a pivotal roll in the whole process; from his initial designs, which fit our brief perfectly, right through to advice on packaging layout, print formats and proofs.  He is a pleasure to deal with and his turnaround times on artwork are excellent.  The ongoing design support he provided has been invaluable..

I have found Grant to be a skilled, innovative and accommodating designer, always prepared to make changes when requested, and to suggest practical solutions where needed.  Production often occurred under very tight timelines, and Grant was prepared to work 24/7 to meet these targets. His contribution to the magazine cannot be underestimated: it remains the mostly highly regarded communication vehicle in the Australian citrus industry, and this is in no small part due to Grant’s commitment to delivering an attractive, engaging and professional journal.
