Tim Bond

Creative designer

Epsom, United Kingdom
I'm a creative and dependable graphic designer, helping small businesses and international organisations with visual solutions across their print and digital marketing. I have a passion for helping people communicate clearly and effectively through simple, clear and concise visual information. I believe simplicity is key with any communication.

I have extensive experience of woking within the Educational sector on brochures, direct mail and digital media and have worked with several leading publishers and exam boards as well as universities and colleges, from internal corporate presentations to brochures, direct mail and web assets.

I also work with smaller businesses with projects such as logo design and website graphics.

I'm easy to work with, great at listening to a customer's needs and deliver projects on time and within budget. I'm able to work within a companies brand guidelines yet still be creative.

I employed Tim at short notice to create an e-book for me. I was blown away by the results as well as the speed at which Tim responded to my requests. Tim was really easy to deal with and understood all my requests and creative nuances. He delivered above and beyond what I was expecting. I will definitely use Tim for my next design project."

I have been trusted by many large organisations including Pearson, Cambridge Assessment, OCR, University of Cambridge, Oxford University Press, Capstone Publishing and Capital City College Group.

"Tim is very easy to work with, always reliable and consistent and I know I can trust him to do a good job"
