Ian Robins - About me

I love graphic design and I have always found it interesting and rewarding. I have worked in the industry for more than 30 years and have been a freelance designer since 1995.

I provide a fast, friendly and professional creative service at a very competitive price. Not having the overheads of some the bigger design companies I can keep my costs low.

My background is mainly in print and advertising design (you can follow my journey through graphics in the timeline here) but I also provide web design, branding and illustration.

If you would like more information, or would like to discuss a particular project, why not get in touch with me
