My Experience and Approach to Freelance Web Design
Keri Newman Design Limited was formed in 2013 after 10 years of working freelance with various design agencies and companies. I work from a studio based in Limehouse , London. I have a degree in Media Production (1996) and I am always attending conferences, courses and researching new techniques to stay on top of the ever changing world of website design.
Although I am based in London, I work with clients all over the UK and also in Norway, France and the US. I am flexible in my approach, working with companies of all sizes, and at all stages of projects. Collaboration and in-depth consultation is key in producing outstanding work. I believe working directly with the creative person is important, I am a hands-on designer with the ability to lead projects efficiently and to time and budget.
My approach to web design
My approach to web design is to really understand your company and what they you are looking to achieve. I work closely with all clients to form a creative partnership, handling all the design and project management. I work with a team of Senior Developers to ensure the website functions perfectly. We are design consultants rather than simply web designers and developers. We feel we bridge the gap between an agency and freelance web design.
We go above and beyond web design. I believe websites should not only look professional and have a great design, they should be aimed at the end user, function well, be easy to update and rank well with search engines.
We pull together teams and will also manage this process. We can recommend copywriters, photographers, seo consultants and video producers.
We are constantly refining our design process, to ensure we are providing our best work. We never cut corners. At the start of the process we ensure we understand all of your aims in order to provide a comprehensive quote and timeline which we ensure we will stick to.
I work with a range of companies
Agencies – I work with agencies on one-off projects, either designing their websites or on behalf of their clients looking for website design. I am experienced in pitching ideas and interpreting concepts.
Small and medium companies – I form creative partnerships with small and medium companies. Working on one off projects or as a long term partner who can cover all aspects of design. From updating your website, creating email campaigns, designing brochures or creating a whole new look and feel for the company.
Start ups – From creating an initial identity to getting all marketing collateral in place. We can advise on cost effective ways to start up your company and define what to focus on, and keep in the budget you have assigned.
Brands – If you are looking for someone to work with on a freelance basis I can often help. I can work in-house or from my studio. I mainly cover web design and digital campaigns when working in-house. I also have experience of managing teams.
