My real name is Emma.

I'm 41 years old and live in beautiful North Devon with my naughty English Bull Terrier 'Scout'.


Even after over a decade of design experience I'm not looking to expand Design by Pie into a high earning creative agency with lots of staff. My goal is to keep things as simple as possible and to keep things within my grasp.


So, I can't say that you will see branches of "Design by Pie" opening up in London, New York or Paris. But I can promise you a personal, in-touch working relationship and an understanding of what it takes to run a business from the ground up.


Oh, and some lovely, creative designs!

Graphics, good or bad, possess the power to make or break your client’s first impression of you. That critical first impression is definitely something worth investing in. Hiring an experienced graphic designer can help to boost your brand with visual story telling and style consistency.


But when running a small business, affording in-house graphic designers or outsourcing your design work to large agencies can be very expensive...so why not hire a freelancer?


Pie can guarantee that you will always be dealing with the same person,(no receptionists, account managers, or design juniors here!). There may be the odd, barky, interruption from Pie's boss; 'Scout', (a gorgeous, head strong English Bull Terrier), but her outbursts are minimal and mostly entertaining!

Pie will manage your project from initial conversation to finalising the finished piece(s). Over the years this has proved to build a better, smoother working relationship and creates an elevated understanding of an individuals goals and specific design requirements.


So, if you are looking for a conceptually dynamic and practical design solution for your new project, or a logo, a brochure, social media images or a revamped brand identity - Pie can help you achieve the professional design results you need.


With over a decade of graphic design experience, Pie is available to provide you with friendly, affordable and professional graphic design services, whether you need creative input for a 'one-off' project or ongoing graphic design support. Have any questions about your project? I'm always available for a chat.

Emma AKA 'Pie'

Pie's approach:

  • Laid back yet professional
    I work from home and have done so successfully for many years with many recurring clients, on a completely remote basis. Most of my communication is done via email or phone. No, not mobile, good old landline. (I save Zoom calls for 'good hair days', which have been pretty scarce, I'll admit since March 2020!)

    If you are interested in working with me, or have any questions about your project, initially, send me an email or give me a quick call on my landline.

    I'd love to have a chat with you about your project and what your hopes for your (new) venture(s) are...

    I also believe in having my weekends and bank holidays off, with the agreement that during standard working hours, I'm available and active for my clients.
  • Straight talking and empathetic
    I'm always happy to give design advice and/or a professional opinion within my field. But please know that I'm solely here to support your graphic design needs, not to give you business advice.

    My job is to provide an efficient and creative edge to your design needs whether it's a one off project or a long term collaboration of like minded people. I look forward to hearing about your ideas!
