I create Graphic Design and I’m based in Southampton

I design everything a business could need from brochures, logos, adverts and stationery through to exhibition stands, web banners, magazines and reports. Plus a whole lot more you hadn’t even thought of.

I gathered all my knowledge and experience from working within design teams at design studios, popped it in a pot and labelled it Bongo Creative.

I strongly believe in good quality design and a premium finish for your business. This communicates you in the best way, and leaving this bit to me, means you can concentrate on your business. Once you’ve been Bongo’d, you will stand proud within your industry.  As well as injecting creativity and personality to your brand, I pride myself in listening to what you actually want to achieve, and deliver. Simple.

GRAPHIC DESIGN & PRINT. Many agencies now design exclusively for the web or experiential projects. At Bongo Creative, I still believe in the power of fantastic print. After all, brochures, advertising, stationery and direct marketing pieces still provide that crucial link and support for your online presence. Contact Bongo for Design for Print.

LogoPic

LOGO DESIGN & BRANDING. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so your logo and image must be memorable, professional, adaptable to all formats – and stand out consistently across your brand’s marketing collateral. It should incorporate your values, fit your brand ‘personality’ and, like the best, become instantly recognisable and associated with it.

GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES. I am Ali Beaumont and I’m a freelance graphic designer based Southampton, Hampshire. With nearly 20 years’ experience in the graphic design industry I offer a wide range of services to design agencies and companies throughout Southampton, Hampshire, and the UK. From print design through to digital design. So, if you’re looking for a logo update, business cards, a new brochure design, a menu, an exhibition stand or anything else please get in touch and let me show you what I can do to help your business.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING HUMAN. As essentially a one-man band, I can give every project the personal touch. This means getting to know you as well as your business, and that’s one reason I get so much repeat business and referrals. In effect, I become an extension of your company. Someone you feel happy contacting for a chat, a quick question, sensible advice – and a very competitive price for a very high standard and quality of design. Don’t take my word for it – check out what some of my clients have had to say. Then, for a chat about what your business needs, get in touch.

THE WEDDING STATIONERS – A BONGO CREATIVE PRODUCTION I’m also a wedding stationery and paper goods specialist. I’ve been commissioned extensively to create everything you’ll need for your wedding day, lead-up and afterwards, that not only looks great – but also threads the whole thing together, making it fabulous! Contact me for information on Wedding Stationery Design in Southampton, Hampshire and the UK.
HOW MUCH DO I CHARGE The most important and frequently asked question. Unfortunately there is no simple answer here – but you already knew that. All I can tell you is that an average design agency will charge you upwards of £75 per hour and my rate is considerably less than that – yet I have agency experience, agency contacts and agency quality work. Some jobs are incredibly simple and therefore cost less, some are extremely complicated and cost more. All I can suggest is pop your details on an email, or call me with an outline of your project and I will call you back to discuss your requirements, your budget and deadline.

CONTENT CREATION

Great marketing begins with great creative assets. I will work with your existing ones or welcome the creation of tailor-made original content from scratch.  Leave it to me to choose relevant typography, illustration graphics and photography for your project. For example, below are a couple of maps that I’ve created. You could have something hand drawn, injecting a bit more personality or you could have a clean re-drawn map using Google as reference.

SINGLE PROJECTS THROUGH TO FULL CAMPAIGNS

Regularly, projects require a range of elements which I produce. I’ll work with you to create a strong project theme and this will then be carried through to a flyer, poster, print ads, a social media advert/banner and a targeted email flyer. Whatever you have in mind I can handle everything smoothly and help you really push the boat out. Below shows the amount of elements I created for 1 event that took place at WestQuay Shopping centre in Southampton. I created the design and managed the production of all the elements.

ADVERTISING

I have adverts coming out of my ears! I regularly produce creative artwork for print media advertising from in-house business communications to press advertising. This ranges from special advertorial pieces to more simple recruitment adverts. I also produce online advertising banners. To give you an idea of the many different adverts I work on, heres just a few…

EXHIBITION & DISPLAY

Go big for your audience. Exhibition and display can range from simple pop up banners to oversized exhibition stands, window vinyls to signage information boards. I’ll combine your brand and the concept and upscale to give the impact you are looking for. This was a project I worked on with a committee at Southampton Council. Students created poems and were then used throughout the board along side local artists work.

LOGO & BRANDING

Brand identities can be deceptively simple or complex, attention grabbing or subtle, witty, cutting edge, classic, friendly, familiar…the list can go on. Your logo is the heart of your brand and needs to reflect you and your business. I will undertake a branding exercise really taking the time to work through thoughts and designs looking at fonts, relevant graphics and colour schemes then combining the three. I will come up with a final selection of logos to present to you. Once a route is chosen I’ll develop and create your brand. My creative mind will work to design you a unique identity. To create a logo it takes time, thought and experience. You will be able to go online and get a logo for £35 but remember this is the heart of your brand, something you will always use and for everything. It’s worth investing so that every time you show it to your customers, you are proud of your business.

IDENTITY REFRESH

I am often asked to look at updating an existing identity. Some client’s brands are well established and are still a reasonable fit for the company ethos and direction, but require a more subtle upgrade if aspects of the original design are looking dated. Others find that their existing identity formats just don’t work well on social media, tablets and iPhones. These are all familiar problems that I can fix.
