Hello! I'm Pie... A Freelance Graphic Designer


My real name is Emma, I'm 37 and live in High Bickington with my naughty English Bull Terrier 'Scout'.

In 2011 I decided to become a freelance graphic designer (after working in the industry for over 6 years) - and I have never looked back!


Being a freelancer means I can work from home and keep my overheads to a minimum. As a result I am able to charge my clients reasonable rates - and unlike a design agency, I'm not juggling a huge number of projects at any one time, so I can give my clients and their projects the attention they deserve.

I specialise in print design (the most wonderful form of communication, in my opinion!) but am also able to provide graphics and designs for various web based advertising (including websites, social media, google ad words etc.


My business ethos

I am not looking to take over the world with Design By Pie, nor am I looking to expand 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 and Paris. (What a shame!) But what I can promise is a personal, in-touch working relationship and an understanding of what it takes to run a business from the ground up.

"Your clients are your friends"

Wise words. I heard this from the lips of a business person many years ago and I have never forgotten it. In truth, it is only now that I fully understand the meaning. 

Having been in business for myself for just over 5 years I know what it means to build and maintain a good working relationship with clients - which involves: honesty, listening, swift responses and availability - alongside producing considered and engaging designs.

"I love to  create my own designs free of the pressure of large overheads,

middle management and corporate agenda. So here I am."
