  • Honest and transparent pricing

    Forssa Light offers an honest and transparent pricing system, with prices listed on our website. This means you aren’t hit with unexpected fees, and allows you to plan your budget.

  • Cost-effective packages

    Cost-effective starter packages are available for website, graphic design and visual branding, that allow you to get your business marketing up and running with ease.

  • One-stop-shop

    I handle all aspects of your project, from branding strategy, writing, to final design. This means you don’t have to hire several different people to do the work, saving you time and effort.

  • Experienced and qualified

    I hold qualifications in Fine Art and Public Relations, am a certified white hat SEO and UX web developer, and have worked in marketing, events and administration for several years.

Why Forssa Light for Local Small Business

I offer a convenient one-stop-shop style of service, which means I personally handle all aspects of your branding and design myself. This includes brainstorming and creating your visual concept, to building your website, SEO, logo design, graphic design and writing.

In normal circumstances, businesses need to engage different people to do this work, such as a separate graphic designer, writer and web developer. Engaging several people often leads to quality control and miscommunication issues, meaning your brand may be represented incorrectly across your different marketing materials.

With Forssa Light, you can get all you need in the one place, meaning you don’t have to hire several different designers or agencies to do the work. Not only will this save you time and money, but also ensures that your business branding looks consistent and exactly as intended across all your different marketing materials.

Why Forssa Light for Event Managers

I have been involved in the event industry for two decades, in roles including functions coordinator, event manager and event graphic designer. I understand the intricacies of running events, and the need for a highly-focused and well-researched visual brand that zones into your demographic and speaks directly to your target audience.

As an event graphic designer and past event manager, I am familiar with working to strict deadlines for advertising, printing and distribution. I also have experience designing a suite of materials to ensure a consistent look across the entire event, including website, social media, advertisements, posters, promotional and onsite signage, and screen displays.

I can craft visual branding for most events and genres, including music concerts, arts and food festivals, and business conferences. To assist with budgeting, I can provide a detailed quote for your event grant application, and will consider sponsorship arrangements.

Why Forssa Light for Creative Professionals

With my background in fine art and illustration (see my portfolio), I understand what being a creative professional is like. I empathise with your marketing journey, including the personal aspects such as self-doubt, discomfort with selling yourself, and the lack of time while you try to juggle life and a day job with your creative career.

I also understand that creatives don’t have much money to spend on marketing, when it’s hard enough to make ends meet as it is. To address this, I provide clear and transparent pricing, so you can plan your budget accordingly. I will also advise you on the most affordable option to reach your marketing goals, so that you aren’t left out of pocket for services or designs that you don’t actually need.

I love to see talented creatives succeed, and be part of their career journey. My ultimate goal is to make you look great and give you a consistent visual presence online and offline, to help you build followers, get more clients and sell your creative works.
