Logo layered onto photos to create WordPress website banner headers
Branding is very important for your website and adding a logo to your photos is one way you can do this. With the help of a Freelance Artworker, she uses Adobe InDesign to typeset a branded logo photo png.
Helen at Renner Cottages asked Sarahjane to create WordPress header banners for their new website. Sarahjane used photos Helen had taken from her mobile phones while out and about on the farm.
Print deadlines all seem to arrive very quickly for clients. Sarahjane was hired to artwork layouts, adding in text and images. Working closely with Project Manager and Senior Designer. Making client amends using PDF sticky notes and creating print ready PDFs.
Sarahjane creates high quality artwork that is ready for print. Some designer create a draft design for the Artworker to update with the final print ready version.
Creating a final version from the start saves time and stress before a huge print deadline like the Fringe Festival brochure. Sarahjane is highly organised and makes sure all her artwork is CMYK, with the correct brand fonts and colours.
Sarahjane enjoys helping out local businesses with flyers, leaflets, web icons and banners. She charges by the hour and can create artwork from a found sample ideas or a sketch.
Sarahjane’s tip to help decide on a size for your flyer or leaflet is to get a print estimate first, for single or double sided. Plus a sample is very handy to touch and feel the quality and to see the size of the font and images.
Graphic Designer’s involved in publishing hire Sarahjane from time to time to help out when they are busy designing. Involved layout that consist of times, dates and places requires a your full attention especially in a ‘What’s On Guide’.
Sarahjane was asked to help out with local magazine Seaford Scene and Eastbourne Old Town Criers. She is highly organised and thoroughly enjoys the challenge. Using style sheets in InDesign to make the design consistent and quicker to layout.
Sarahjane desk hopped around the office over a few weeks covering the email and helping out on projects while the designers where on holiday. The Senior Designer had created the menus templates with the client and Sarahjane updated the content and made it print ready. Also updating and amending American Express T&Cs, catalogues, leaflets and banners.
I enjoy a challenge and Fruit asked if I would create Microsoft Word templates for University of Cambridge to help standardise their paperwork. The designer had created the rebrand and I copied this style into Microsoft Word. Using headers, footers and styles to create a variety of templates.
Microsoft Word styles are easy to use once you know how. I am also available to teach.
