I've worked in newspapers throughout my career, taking on various roles as a reporter, sub-editor and designer on local, regional and national newspapers, which has given me a broad range of skills.
Around 10 years ago I set up my own business as a graphic designer while continuing to freelance as a sub-editor and page designer on newspapers like the Sunday Express and Daily Star.
On the design side, over the last decade I've built up a wide-ranging clientele from across the UK, including Blackpool and the Fylde College and Blackpool Council; recent clients have come from diverse fields such as finance and wealth management; vehicle accident repair management; and hotel and catering.
Many people in business struggle to find the right words to get their message across: my background means that as well as offering unique designs for your marketing, I can also write the content, the headlines or straplines; or simply proof-read or rewrite a client's efforts.
I like to work closely with clients to make sure they're happy with the final product. Most of my work comes from word of mouth, so I must be doing something right!

I even drop in to Twitter occasionally: @monosteve
Design for print: business cards and stationery, advertisements, leaflets and brochures, newsletters, magazines, newspapers, pop-up banners and exhibition stands.
Copywriting: Writing press releases; content for websites; marketing literature; company newsletters or magazines.
I can also offer interactive workshops in writing press releases and media awareness.
The only thing I don't do is build websites; I'm not too proud to admit there are plenty of web developers out there who are far better at it than me!
