What I Do

About Idun Design

The Idun Design Studio Is Based In Clerkenwell, London EC1. A Stone's Throw From Silicon Roundabout In East London Tech City.

Process

I always follow a strategic approach; identify your brand’s strengths and weaknesses, get to know your company culture, research your audience, your competition, and the current market.

Working with a freelance designer means you get to deal direct with the person who is actually designing your company’s print needs or building your website, not just some account manager who is relaying your comments to a third party.

That means your project is much more likely to be exactly what you’re after first time around, and if you want to make changes at any time during the process, just let me know.

Clients

I have worked with a wide range of clients, from small one man bands, right up to huge multi-national companies and charities such as Coca-Cola & OxFam. So if you will excuse the cliche, there is no client too big or too small.

My project fees vary due to the scale and complexity of each individual project, so feel free to get in touch for a quote. The more information you can provide me with up front, the more accurately I can determine the project fee. I also provide excellent rates for combined projects; for example if you were to require both full re-branding and website redesign.

Design is not the narrow application of formal skills,
it is a way of thinking.

About Me

My name is Geoffrey Idun, I am a Yorkshire born & bred Ghanaian and a graduate of the University of Leeds in Digital Media & Technology.

About

During my time working for agencies I worked with iconic brands and corporate leaders. These days, working freelance I tend to work more with medium-sized independent companies, small businesses & start-up enterprises – producing a high standard of graphic & web design that is driven by bold creative thinking.

Experience

I have over 11 years of experience working in studio, in-house and start-up environments and have worked with a variety of clients on some great projects ranging from brand identity to cms and e-commerce websites to event posters and album art. I love being both a designer and a front-end developer as it allows me to flex my creative muscles and get my hands dirty with HTML and CSS. It’s a great balance and the ever-evolving industry keeps me on my toes.

Social

When I am not pushing pixels or slinging code, you’ll find me planning travel adventures, exploring the outdoors, and attending music festivals and concerts. I also enjoy other creative and self-improving outlets including photography, juice fasting, eating raw food, growing my own food, playing football and interval training.

Graphic Design

As a graphic designer I produce work that provokes a reaction, using meaningful and relevant ideas to engage with your audience and leaves a long lasting impression. From magazines & brochures to packaging & poster art, I love to be creative and the feeling of seeing the final product.

Branding & Packaging

Branding & packaging design isn’t just ‘some colours, typefaces, a logo design and a slogan’. A ‘brand’ is the all encompassing term for everything you do to provide an identity for your business. In order to create the right image for your company I will create branding that is consistent, direct and stimulating for your audience.
