Character Design: Bringing your characters to life...

Are you in need of a good affordable Character design?

Character Design and Illustration is what I’m all about! We are based in the UK (Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire), and when I’m not having fun with our Studio Cat, Erik, I love nothing more than creating random, unique and sometimes crazy cartoon characters for all types of businesses.

A custom character, or a company mascot is a great way of presenting you or your business. Whether as a fun and cheeky representation, or a more corporate approach, it’s essential that it is a perfect fit for your needs and your business. For many people, it’s far easier to remember the face of a character than it is a graphic logo!

Why you need a cartoon character?

Perhaps you’re a Plummer called Pete, a Bee-Keeper named Beryl, or maybe a Mouse-Catcher called Morris, and you would like a cartoon character creating uniquely for you; then you have come to the right place! As a professional character designer with over 15 years experience, I will work closely with you, define exactly what it is you are looking for, and ultimately bring your dream character to life!
