“Work Hard & Be Nice To People” – Anthony Burrill
My work motto, and one I have always strived to live by is a phrase by Graphic Designer Anthony Burrill. While at University he guest lectured and gave out some free prints. The wording has always stuck with me, and has now become our family motto too. It sits pride of place framed on our landing, and is the first thing we see every morning. Hope it inspires you and gives you an insight into how I like to work, and my approach!
So….HRH Creative was born out of my love of fashion, design and being quirky and creative. Having worked for many retailers across diverse sectors, the role of creatives has changed. The customer now expects an omni-channel journey, and the role of the Marketeer needs to create this rounded experience across all visual touch-points.
With this in mind, I offer a complete solution where design is considered from the in-store experience right through to it’s online presence. I can conceptualise ideas that will translate well from the web into windows and visa-versa. But if you’re not at this stage yet, I can still help. Many projects I have been working on have started with the initial branding or a re-brand, then working on packaging, business stationery and working with the team/designer to create a brand identity, that we can then use as the foundation for other creative projects!
With great supplier and industry contacts I can work with you and your in-house team to deliver outstanding creative to budget. Whether that be a Look book, POS or some Web banners – I can work with you to ensure it is effective, of the highest quality and standard, and that it looks on brand – while considering all it’s final outputs.
My background is I am a qualified Graphic Designer by trade, who has diversified my skills to adapt to the changing retail climate over the last 12 years. I’m passionate, hard working and really love what I do. I can work on all sized projects, to deadline and brief, working alongside teams or other freelancers, and am advanced in Adobe CC. I am a bit of a print geek too, and enjoy immersing myself into a print production and design project!
What is nice, is that I can help see a project right through from the initial idea, through to final implementation – and even assist with areas such as Visual Merchandising, eCommerce Photography assistance, Styling and Art Direction. See my portfolio for examples of all of these areas.
I’m keen to work with independent designers, and brands who are looking for creative and graphic design assistance. I’d also love to hear from other creatives, consultants and agencies who might want to work on collaborations, and of course any retailers that might something a bit different and to outsource some creative or a bespoke window display. I’m available to work daily, weekly, on projects, on a consultancy basis or retainer, so just get in touch and let’s chat!
