My name is Sue England, I am a solo freelance graphic designer and I create beautiful, usable marketing materials.

My Approach

My approach always begins with the client.

We meet, you see my work and, assuming you like both, you hire me. Then I work with you to understand your business, your approach, and define what distinguishes you in the marketplace.

My clients are the experts in their field and I am the expert in translating that into visual communication. Whether for a website, brochure, or a full-scale brand identity analysis, as graphic designer, I can help you take your company or idea to the next level.

Good design is about communication and building brand integrity. Trends, gadgets, technology and fads aren’t bad things when used corrected but when misused they can clutter the design instead of reinforcing your message.

Depending on the scope of a project, I sometimes team up with superior tried-and-true professionals enabling us to match clients’ needs with the right resources and execute projects of any size and scope.

I am actively involved in every aspect of your project, from initial strategy to getting it market-ready. I understand and respect deadlines and the need to produce what you need when you need it.

A good and honest business relationship is what I believe in. When your business succeeds, Sue England Design succeeds.
