I’m Katy Zwiers, an independent graphic designer.
I worked for over ten years as an in-house designer for large, corporate, London-based companies like Foxtons and Gerald Eve. I now use my marketing and branding experience to help smaller businesses create a professional, branded look that enforces brand recognition whilst also helping them to stand out and get noticed in the marketplace.
I specialise in printed material (including leaflets, adverts, posters, business cards, banners and brochures) and presentations; but over the years I’ve worked on all sorts, from huge van designs to tiny stickers.
I am creative, but also very logical. To me, the most important thing about a great design is that it works. It doesn’t matter how good a design looks if it doesn’t serve its purpose.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
I focus on the purpose of the design first and foremost, and then make it look good afterwards.
Patterns and repetition are key to building up momentum and thriving as a business. I work with the majority of my clients for years, helping them to build up their brand over time. This way, we build a relationship as their business grows, and we learn how to work harmoniously together, giving them the peace of mind of having a trusted designer at their disposal who knows exactly what they want, whenever they need.

Outgoing costs for small businesses can be overwhelming. I like to keep things simple and price per job where possible, and the set price includes my time, any stock images used, amends and all rights to the final design.
Although I do need to discuss each job and make sure it doesn’t include anything unusual, here are some set prices for standard jobs:
SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGES: £20
BUSINESS CARDS: £50
SMALL ADVERT: £75
A5 FLYER: £100
TEN-PAGE POWERPOINT PRESENTATION: £150
THREE-FOLD DL LEAFLET: £150
EIGHT-PAGE BROCHURE: £250
Katy has a depth of experience and knowledge to make a real difference on projects. She is an articulate, proactive and highly professional designer. I highly recommend her.
Nothing's ever too much for Katy. She is quick to understand a brief and provide possible designs for it, reacts well to suggestions and is a pleasure to work with.
Only a small percentage of graphic designers are really good and Katy is one of these. Her great qualities include the ability to listen, outstanding patience and a great work ethic. I have always been fascinated at her ability to take a poorly described brief, turn it into something often initially unrecognisable (like an artist preparing a canvas) and then to quickly develop it into something that surpasses the original vision. At this point I often change my mind as the flaw in my original vision becomes apparent! This is no problem for Katy whose endless patience I have already mentioned and whose only concern is providing the outcome that is ultimately desired.
Katy is quick, reliable and professional. We have experienced a very good service. Our branding, leaflets, presentations and business cards all look professional and smart. I would recommend her to any business needing help with branding and marketing.
Katy Zwiers was recommended by a friend and I can not recommend her enough. From start to finish, her vision, creative eye and delivery of end product is second to no one. I, like most business people am very busy which is why working with Katy is so great. Our contact is minimal (all via email and phone calls) as we are not geographically close. However the work is always exactly what we wanted. So if you are looking for someone to help grow your business through branding and graphic design look no further. I know that Katy’s design work has transformed my business and her attention to detail has helped us stand out in an otherwise boring market place. She is fantastic, 100% recommended.”
From having no idea how to portray my business to having a fully branded business that is different, bold and a little vintage. Katy has been essential in my business development, patient in my indecisiveness and professional and accurate throughout the whole process. I wholeheartedly recommend her talent.
We have been working with Katy for over two years now on our campaigns for our winter sports clients. Katy’s design work and attention to detail is always first class and she always delivers on deadline. I would not hesitate to recommend Katy to anyone looking to re-brand, or create highly professional marketing campaigns.
