Dublin Based, Freelance Graphic Designer Specialising in Creating Effective Brand Identities for Startup Companies & Small Businesses

Some clients I've worked with...

What can a graphic designer do for your business?

Your business could be the best in your niche, providing top quality services and expertise, but if your brand’s visual identity doesn’t accurately reflect your niche, visually differentiate itself from your competitors, or communicate your brand’s core values, and beliefs, you will struggle to engage your target audience. Startups often ignore this advice in an effort to reduce spending which hinders their chances of long term success. Your brand’s visual identity will play an important role in ensuring each touchpoint associated with your brand has the right impact on your target audience. Good design helps to strengthen your image as a legitimate brand. For this reason, design for your business should be considered a necessary investment rather than an avoidable expense.

Why choose Finan Callaghan as your go-to freelance graphic designer in Dublin?

The brand identities I design are built on a framework that is the result of strategic market research & analysis that is unique to each job. This research and analysis allows me to make informed decisions about how your brand identity should be visualised so that it makes you more money.  My pricing is transparent, and affordable. I offer a range of standardised pricing plans and packages to suit a variety of budgets. My mission is to provide my clients with the highest quality design possible without costing them a fortune.

What graphic design services do you provide?

I am a multidisciplinary freelance graphic designer, which means I am trained to provide a broad range of services depending on my clients’ needs. My primary service offerings are:

How many options do I get to choose from?

For every job there are two design options and two rounds of revisions factored into the quote. If you would like to add extra design options and/or extra rounds of revisions, I am more than happy to arrange this for you, but it will incur additional cost.

What if I don’t like the final design?

For every project I work in close collaboration with my clients, communicating every step of the way, the direction I believe, based on my research, we should be headed towards. This collaborative approach ensures that there are no nasty surprises come final presentation day. If however, we reach the end of the process and you are not happy with the work, we can revisit the agreement so that I can keep working until we reach a stage where you’re happy. It is important to remember, however, that whether your business is B2B or B2C, it is your audience that we are designing for, and not your own personal taste.

How much do you charge for your design?

Prices vary depending on the scope of the work involved in any given project. If you would like to get a quote or chat about an upcoming job, you can email me at hello@financallaghan.com or schedule a free 30 minute video consultation.

How much client involvement is allowed during the graphic design process?

I try to collaborate with my clients as much as possible in every job. You know your business better than anyone, so your insight is crucial to the success of the work.

How long is turnaround time?

Again, this varies depending on the scope of the work involved and the scale of the job but as a reference point, a small brand identity job can generally be done in 3-4 weeks. If you have any specific queries about the timeline, please get in touch at hello@financallaghan.com or schedule a free 30 minute video consultation.

Reviews

Finan is an excellent graphic designer. He rebranded our company, thecleaningcompany.ie, from start to finish and designed everything from the logo design, business cards and leaflets to our new van wrap. He took what we roughly described to him on napkin drawings and transformed it into something we are delighted with and more than we ever expected. Clean and minimalist but very powerful. 5 stars on all counts. Thanks again Finan.

The Cleaning Company

Finan is an outstandingly creative thinker and designer, equally comfortable in print and digital. He quickly understands the messaging needs of the client and translates that into clear, memorable and relevant design. He is very tuned into the needs, personas and behaviours of the target audiences and can create engaging visual and verbal messaging at a high level. His design approach is lean and clutter-free.

Sales Virtual

Finan Callaghan worked on branding for our marketing agency Social Gravity. Best decision to choose Finan for branding of our agency. He took my ideas and turned into an amazing modern visual identity that clearly reflects my brand. I can't thank Finan enough for the work he did for us.

Social Gravity

I recently used the services of Finan Callaghan Design Company. From start to finish I found Finan to be courteous, professional and offered very helpful advice when discussing the project. From concept to completion Finan provided a first-class service and I will most definitely be availing of his professional expertise again as needs arise.
