cargo_design is not one of the biggest studios around but in this day and age of shrinking technology it doesn't have to be. In fact it's just me, Richard Byrne, working in my fully equipped home-based studio in Chichester, West Sussex. The more important thing is that I know my business. I have over 30 years experience in graphic design and have been involved in the creation of just about every kind of marketing project in that time – from a single business card up to a 10x10m trade exhibition stand.
The work on this website is only a small selection of my recent projects. If you would like to see more examples or something specific to your market please get in touch.
what do I do_
I've designed all sorts of things for all sorts of businesses including packaging for some of the country's biggest supermarkets, brochures for a couple of the big high street banks and branding for some big names in retail. But it's not all about size – I've also designed postcards for a dentist, a logo for a copy editor and packaging for an online coffee supplier start-up.
I understand marketing and always design a project that is appropriate to the brief, the target audience and the budget – I don't design for design sake. I do, however, always take great care with the details – this is often where the results are won or lost.
My studio is equipped with up-to-date studio hardware, a full suite of the latest design software… and my favourite guitar! Although the majority of my design work over the years has been for print I am very familiar with digital design and have created front end graphics and assets for many websites, online marketing campaigns and social media posts.
who do I work with_
I'm perfectly at home working as a freelancer for other design agencies or directly with clients, whatever their size or market. So whether you're looking for a local designer to meet face to face or you're further afield and prefer to deal over the phone, email or internet please get in touch and we can discuss how I can help.
how much do I charge_
I appreciate costs are always a factor for any business regardless of size and although I may not be the cheapest around the combination of my wide experience, extensive skills and minimal overheads means I consider myself very good value for money. So if you're looking for excellent graphic design based on plenty of know how, a reputation for quality and at a good price please contact me.
