THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW…
Alex Pye began an apprenticeship in vinyl cut graphics in 1997 and spent the next 10 years expanding into large format digital printing, commercial signage, vehicle livery and exhibition design.
As part of the digital printing aspect of this early work, Alex worked closely with a number of Norfolk design agencies. This soon led to the expansion of the company for which he worked, offering a bespoke design service to cut out the middle man and offer a more competitive price.
Alex then began to freelance in design and website publishing, producing work for clients including Premier Education Group, a nationwide physical activity franchisor; Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Norwich City Council, Mr. Pickwick’s pub, The Belgian Beer Huis, Dolphin Travel and numerous small businesses around Norfolk and beyond.
In the interest of expanding his own business, Alex moved the company to Sutton Coldfield on the outskirts of Birmingham in 2013. Pye Design has since gone from strength to strength, captalising on the big city potential and taking on contracts such as Spire Hospital, The Paving Experts, Inter Car Cleaning Ltd, Barley Developments and several small, local businesses.
WHY CHOOSE FREELANCE?
As with many aspects of life and business… bigger doesn’t always mean better.
There is nothing worse than facing a deadline with your marketing tasks and everytime you contact your design agency, a different voice answers the phone, the person you had relayed all your details to is out to lunch, but someone else may be able to help you… and on it goes.
With a freelance designer, who you meet is who you work with throughout your project. They are the person you discuss your ideas with and the one whose hand you shake when your website goes live or your literature goes to print. They are still the person you speak to months down the line when a new challenge presents itself. Think of the time you can save by not having to constantly repeat your order or your amendments!
It doesn’t end there, we’ve saved the best reason for last! You can still reap all the same benefits from using a freelance designer as apposed to an agency but at a much better price! Pye Design has less overheads than the bigger design companies and can therefore offer its services for less, saving you money from your marketing budget.
