Whitcher Design is Dean Whitcher, a concept-led freelance graphic designer based in Worcestershire, UK.
I work with start ups, charities, and established businesses to produce creative and innovative branding and contemporary graphic design and I would like to work with you.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design from the University of Cumbria. Following my graduation, I began working as an in-house graphic designer for a local business producing product catalogues and marketing material for over 6 years. I took some time to do some travelling and in late 2015 set up as a freelance graphic designer in order to take on more diverse and creative projects.
Unlike working with a design agency or marketing company I can offer you a personal service where you only have to deal with the person doing the work and not a salesman or account manager.
I believe good design has to have meaning and every element should be justifiable in a way that relates back to the project brief. I endeavour to get an understanding of what your business does and the market you are in so that we can work together to create something that suits your needs.
After an initial conversation with you about your project I will conduct research and come back to you with a formal project brief to sign off.
Once you're happy that we agree on the goals of your project I will provide you with several concepts for you to choose from and then develop the chosen concept through to the final artwork. I will provide you with copies of the original artwork files in scalable vector format wherever possible following payment. I will continue to support your project after completion providing unlimited support free of charge.
If at any point during the design process you decide you want to add input or just see how the project is going i encourage you to do so. Communication and sharing ideas are an important part of the design process, it makes my job easier and ensures you get exactly what you want.
Graphic design projects are generally charged at an hourly or daily fee, this is dependent on the scope of the work required and the time frame given for completion. For logo design I offer fixed price packages. The standard package costs £200 and includes four concept artworks and two rounds of revisions completed on an 'asap' time frame and i aim to deliver within one working week. If further rounds of revisions are required they will be charged at an hourly rate. Reduced rate logo design packages are also available.
If you would like an estimate or quote, please contact me directly.
I am happy to take on any projects outside of graphic design that can make use of my skill set including illustration and photo retouching. I am also a keen amateur photographer and although i consider photography a hobby I am open to discussions about fulfilling a photography role on a project.
You can see some of my photography portfolio here.
If you already have a project underway and need an extra pair of hands to meet a deadline I would be more than happy to help.
