During the COVID-19 pandemic I have reduced the number of clients I am working with, mostly due to clients who are unable to continue during this time, or have had to close all together. I continue to work from home with a small number of clients, if you are in need of a designer and/or photographer feel free to reach out and I will do my best to help out if I can. All meetings are held virtually. In the meantime check out my slideshow of some of my recent photos I've posted while staying Close to Home!
I so enjoyed working with Julian to create my new website. He came very highly recommended by a friend of mine, someone who used to be a web designer herself and who is very particular, so I knew I was in good hands. Julian has the experience, knowledge and creativity and using that he took my ideas and content and made great suggestions and improvements to create Personal Touch Home Cleaning‘s new web site, and even tweaked my logo giving it more strength and better flow… who knew. If you need a website, or an adjustment to your logo, Julian’s your man!
(Julian’s) ability to take what too often amounts to a wheelbarrow full of text and turn it into an appealing, readable and polished piece always amazes me. He has an excellent eye for design, and because he has a keen ability to contextualize the material, can rapidly find creative solutions to problems. Julian is also unfailingly professional and patient—even when clients make eleventh hour changes or balk at new design ideas.
I have worked with Julian, and Luckham Creative, for many years now. He has done a wide variety of graphic design, web development and design, and layout for our organization. He has also done some training with our partners and taken some gorgeous photos that we continue to use. I highly recommend Julian for creative graphic design delivered on time and in budget!
Julian has designed a multitude of publications, collateral and online products for WIEGO over the last 5 years. His attention to detail, responsiveness and extensive knowledge of photography and printing have been essential to producing high impact publications such as WIEGO’s Annual Report, the Global Economic Crisis Study and much much more often in multiple languages and at times working with key stakeholders who are based in other countries.
Over the past fifteen years working together, Luckham Creative has created a unique online movie marquee format for the Ottawa Film Society’s (OFS) Web site. Julian’s design is fresh, innovative and engaging.
Luckham Creative has provided us with excellent web and graphic design services. Julian is a great listener and is attuned to his client’s needs. His creative talents, attention to detail, patience and good will have been most appreciated.
