'High Peak Creative' – Graphic Design, Print, Marketing and PR is my creative agency business and is based in Glossop, within the borough of High Peak, Derbyshire. Offering hands-on, bespoke creative services and printed promotional products, marketing provision and PR exposure. My passion is helping small businesses to develop professional looking imagery, but at a practical price. I am sincere in my value-added approach to everything I do.
I have a vast amount of creative experience and over 35 years in my industry. I create professional designs, quality artwork and provide short- or long-run printed material. As a qualified technical illustrator and author, I am proficient in producing quality and clear infographics to simplify detailed or complex information and results-driven presentations. My Customer/Client base spans SME, Local, National, and International organisations and companies. These include micro, small, medium, and large businesses, as well as public sector, local government (Councils), research and multi-national organisations.
Throughout my career I have adopted a simple 4-stage process approach to the successful provision of my craft: I listen... I understand... I create... I deliver.
I have specialist experience in the creation and supply of Scientific, Technical and Industrial 'marketing and publicity' material in the business-to-business arena, producing brochures, catalogues, manuals and technical marketing literature. Additional prominence in Education, Research and Charity arenas has seen project work including School and College brochures and prospectuses, Annual Trustee and Government Reports. and Specialist start-up business initiatives. In the B2C arena I provide all display and visual communication collateral, soft marketing via social media and PR exposure to get clients noticed and presented as enticing to their target clientelle.
With over 15 years in Networking, I have a vast contact base to the extent I am widely known as 'Mr Introducer', for my ability to link up people and businesses for mutual gain. I am a proactive afilliate marketeer always looking for businesses to promote on a commission return basis. I am essentially a B2B/B2C business promotional service, providing a practical whole-service approach to marketing and publicity for my customers, through ' social media marketing and 'targeted promotional campaigns'. As 'Mr Introducer' my offering also includes a 'selective' affiliate marketeer element. That is to say, business introductions can be made on a purely opportunistic 'commission only' contract basis.
The length and breadth of my experience has allowed me to provide pro bono mentoring assistance to businesses owners through the Business Growth Hub, and further as private clients to help them longer term to promote and develop their businesses. I always find time to speak with anyone who is serious about improving their business, and take little notice in the intrinsic value of any project in that regard.
With more than 35 yrs in the Design, Print and Marketing arena I have a passion for helping start-up businesses get off on the right foot with their corporate branding and promotional material. I love to meet new people and networking really suits me. My passion dictates that in my spare time, I am usually working(!). But when I do take time out, I love history, antiques, photography, painting (watercolours) and getting out into the country. A generally active and busy person at work, I do enjoy solitude at times, and often get away for the odd weekend on my own to just chill out! I love dreaming up domain names and buying them to develop later! I enjoy most types of music, especially (traditional) live Jazz. I have in the past gone to the extent of renting rooms, hiring musicians and 'putting on a gig' for anyone willing to buy tickets!
I genuinely like to help people where I can, passing on any benefit of my experience to anyone that can make use of it. After over 15 years in Networking I have a vast contact base to the extent I have often been referred to as 'Mr Introducer' for my ability to link up people and businesses for mutual gain. I am a proactive afilliate marketeer always looking for businesses to promote on a commission return basis.
Now living in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District, I have moved my business to the High Peak Town of 'Glossop' establishing my own creative studio. Going forward as 'High Peak Creative', this new phase in my career has rekindled my passion, and I am looking forward to the challenges it will bring.
