Brand Identity Specialist
Design, Management, Marketing & More!
My name is CJ Thomson and I’ve been a freelance designer and brand manger for over 15 years. With a comprehensive portfolio covering graphic and web design, brand management and complete visual identity, I’ve got you covered!
Why deal with an entire agency when you can have an all-in-one solution?
Need a logo? An effective eye-catching website and social media to match? A refresh or a total rebrand?
From sophisticated designs, logos and websites for small businesses and global corporations; I’ve grown to understand the forever-changing demands from customers of all business types and how effective brand strategy makes all the difference.
If you’re looking for a transparently understanding and enthusiastic professional to elevate your business presence online and off-line, implement creative user interfaces and take care of design, development and marketing then be sure to take a look around and get in touch!
No agencies. No gimmicks. Good old fashioned brand services!
With my extensive skill-set, you won’t have to worry about chasing down a team of mostly-outsourced specialists.
Having multiple music projects, and operating a small independent book publisher and record label – I’ve set out to take care of everything from the snazzy website all the way through to the small — but incredibly important — details such as the use of correct wording and colours.
SEO & ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS
You have your website and your brand, but your competition is still taking the lead across search engines, social media results and across the web? Unfortunately, this can only be battled with proper Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and advertising campaigns. My SEO packages involve:
- Website auditing
- Keyword tracking
- Google advertising
- Facebook advertising
- Business directory listings (Google, Yellow Pages and niche-specific services)
- Website trust improvements (Web of Trust, MozTrust, Privacy Badger etc.)
- Website performance adjustments / advice
All campaigns depend on business nature and realistic expectations. Unlike many services out there, I won’t guarantee SEO and advertising will improve your page ranks and your business return but I can give you an honest idea of what to expect given your budget as advertising and promotion is a volatile art!
GO BEYOND LOGOS: BUILD A BUSINESS IDENTITY.
Eye-catching logos and colour schemes. Business cards, promotional materials, stationary, staff uniforms and even vehicle wraps!
UNIQUE WEBSITES THAT YOU CAN UPDATE.
When easy DIY website building platforms like Wix and Squarespace became the norm, I embraced the way this would affect my business. I understand the customer wanting to make easy changes to their website without the need for a web designer. That’s why I specialise in building on platforms such as WordPress. You get a unique website built and designed by an expert, but you don’t need to be an expert to update it!
I even offer personalised video tutorials on configuring and updating your websites information, photos and pages.
SOCIAL MEDIA DESIGN – AND TOTAL MANAGEMENT!
Over 90% of companies use social media with nearly 93% of companies using social media for advertising and marketing in the United States alone. The best way to gain attention is to have a clear and effective design as well as a structured page that shows your business knows the effectiveness of visual identity. For around $850 you’ll have your page shining with an attractive profile picture, cover and “like-optimised” content that ensures you’re on the right path to gaining more followers – whilst keeping the ones you have!
STAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE LAW.
An important but often overlooked aspect of your online presence: You’ve got your website; you’ve got your design – but is your website on the safe side when it comes to the various privacy laws and conditions required irrespective of where the website is hosted, and the business is based.
“I had CJ design me a striking logo and business cards. Since then, this legend has been taking care of all of my online aspects and ensuring I have a recognised presence offline too!”
