Graphic design which makes your brand stand out and represents your core values, created in my studio near Cambridge.
Graphic design runs through every visible part of your business, from your website to brochures and the presentation you might be giving to a client next month.
How do you maintain a visual identity that represents your brand throughout? That’s where I come in: your experienced graphic designer.
You can rely on me to manage your design project, leaving you free to get on with other tasks. I’m the colleague you can turn to who will make sure you hit that deadline.
My process-driven service creates high impact design which gets you noticed for the right reasons and is delivered with a smile.
If you need additional design and marketing support, I work with a talented pool of trusted professionals who I can bring in to complete your design job.
I bring 20 years of design experience, including managing in-house teams, combined with a friendly, calm and organised approach to your project.
“Karen is a highly talented and knowledgeable graphic designer, understanding every aspect of web design. I am really pleased with my customised WordPress site which is totally unique and would highly recommend Karen. She was a joy to work with.”
“We engaged the services of Arnott Design for the second year running to create a suite of marketing brochures. I trust Karen and her team to design beautiful brochures that help achieve our marketing goals, as well as ensuring the project management side of things runs smoothly.”
“When we embarked on designing our own 180-page brochure, we found Karen to be invaluable. Whilst we had a clear idea of what needed to be said, Karen was able to bring her graphic design expertise into play. The extra flair brought to the brochure has injected some real heart into our products. We are delighted with the result and would have no hesitation in using Karen’s services again.”
My career has followed the journey of digital technology. I began my graphic design career at a Cambridge software company back in 1999, at the height of the dot-com boom.
By the early 2000s, I was managing a trans-Atlantic team of graphic designers working within a busy Marcom department. Our work included creating corporate brochures, websites and GUI graphics for all the software ranges.
I set up Arnott Design in 2005, after taking voluntary redundancy. Several former colleagues set up their own businesses and commissioned me to design their brand identity, websites and company stationery.
As technology and markets have changed over the years, I’ve kept up with the latest developments in digital design, including designing for digital devices and researching how people access information and services online. One thing hasn’t changed: graphic design is still a vital part of your business. I’ll make yours effortlessly elegant.
Do you need an enthusiastic process-driven graphic designer who can manage the whole project from conception to completion?
I’ve worked on many projects with multiple stakeholders and can help you keep your design project on track and ensure deadlines are met.
Do you need an efficient graphic designer who can fit into your team on an ad-hoc basis?
I have brought my experience and design expertise to many white label or NDA projects for my agency colleagues. I can be an extra pair of creative hands when you’re pitching for new work or those times when you’re at capacity in-house.
Are you just starting out, looking to revamp your existing brand identity, or needing some ongoing professional design?
I provide branding, digital and print design services to help small businesses with their start-up and ongoing graphic design requirements.
“I worked with Karen to produce a paper for our business, which required a really good grasp of bringing technical content in a niche sector to graphical life. She was a pleasure to work with, absolutely committed to getting the design right and with very strong creative vision and clear attention to detail. I recommend Karen thoroughly.”
“I always love working with Karen on design projects. She brings a calm sense of order to everything, along with oodles of creativity of course!”
“Karen did an excellent job of delivering a new website for our business. She guided us through areas where we were unfamiliar and delivered an end result that was beyond our expectations. Most of all, nothing was too much trouble.”
“The oak tree planted to off-set the carbon was a lovely touch.”
“Thank you for dedicating a tree to us in The National Forest. I was not aware of this initiative but have enjoyed looking through the website and it has given me a few ideas for our own involvement.”
“This is absolutely lovely. Thank you. What a wonderful idea.”
