Let’s get creative

My name is Amy Claire Thompson and I’m a freelance art director, graphic designer and copywriter based in Hillcrest, KwaZulu Natal. I specialise in logo design and branding, simple responsive website design, and concept work for large campaigns. I also have a passion for designing and hand crafting beautiful wedding stationery.

Small businesses

I come from an ad agency background, and offer that same high standard of design to entrepreneurs who would otherwise not be able to afford agency fees. I provide a full graphic design and branding solution from logo design right through to stationery and responsive web design.

Advertising agencies

I am available to work with ad agencies on large scale campaigns where a combination of concept, copywriting, art direction and graphic design is needed. I also work with digital agencies to write content for web pages and blogs that include pre-determined SEO keywords and meta data.

Where do I come from?

Graduating from Rhodes in 2002 where I studied Fine Art and English Literature, I worked in various ad agencies for over a decade. After reaching the level of art director, I began freelancing to offer my skills to small businesses and pursue my love for wedding stationery design.

Creatively at your service

Because I am an art director rather than just a graphic designer, when it comes to design I can see the big picture instead of only focusing on individual elements. I like to get involved from the ground up, ensuring that each project that I’m involved with is creatively, conceptually and visually the best that it can be.

Branding

I offer a full design service, from logos, stationery and company branding to poster design, magazine layouts and event invitations.

Web design

All of my websites are created in WordPress and are responsive – that is, they work beautifully on both desktop and mobile devices.

Weddings

What can I do to help you say I do? I love designing and assembling beautiful wedding stationery for each bride that I work with.

Copywriting

In addition to design, I’m also good with words. I offer various copywriting services, for advertising, blogs and websites.

My creative portfolio

I offer a complete creative service that includes design, concept and copywriting. I believe that design should not stand alone, but rather support a company’s overall branding, and I enjoy working with clients who share my vision of the “bigger picture”. I’m also especially passionate about creating beautiful wedding stationery, uniquely designed and hand assembled for each individual bride.

Client testimonials

I’ve had many wonderful experiences working with my clients over the years, and when I receive such positive feedback it really encourages me to continue striving for great service. Here’s what some of them have to say.

Amy did an incredible job of listening to our many ideas and then beautifully and uniquely creating our wedding stationery and website that was absolutely reflective of our personalities as well as our vision for the wedding. We had so many compliments from our guests regarding attention to detail and how our stationery was so simple yet stunning. Thank you Amy!

Content is one of Amy’s many strengths. Her ability to find creative ways of talking about different business is awesome. Every blog she has written for us has had exceptional engagement and feedback. Great value for money, and the quality is what you’d expect to find from companies charging 2 to 3 times as much. We highly recommend Amy for all your design and content needs.

Thank you Amy for assisting me in getting my wedding stationery done. Not only did I put a lot of pressure on you to do different styles in a short period of time, but you also used so much of your own creativity and gave so much input, it really took a lot of stress off from me. I received your work in high quality, in time, and it was beautiful!
