When I started out in business we spent our days hand writing signs that said things like 'Fishcakes - £1.50 for 4' or Sea Bass, filleted free... Five years as a fishmonger in a small highstreet business striving for fishy excellence and doing our bit for the community I learned a lot about how to do good honest business.
Then someone sold us a website. Fish started going out in boxes, orders from distant counties and even Wales came in on a weekly basis. Our horizons were no longer capped at the annual Wellington Food Fair, suddenly the world was our oyster - or any other shellfish we cared to sell online!
Richardesigns is a business born out of a need to offer small businesses, like fishmongers, the means to navigate the modern marketing paridigm. It's a brave new world of online sales, social media and brand engagement and I try to make sailing that sea simple.
I do it because I believe in what small businesses stand for and the good they do for communities. Our services can help you understand your own story and passion, build your brand blueprint, deliver the print and online tools to get going and help you get creative with design.
I'm also here to help established businesses hoping to effectively tell their stories and get their message out to customers who are passionate about what you're passionate about. You can find out more about Curly Cottage Brand Design here.
I am available for hire to create graphic design, websites and print materials. If you would like to enquire about working with me please feel free to contact me.
