Since COVID-19 I’ve reduced the number of clients I”m working with, but if you’re in need of a designer and/or photographer feel free to reach out and I’ll do my best to help out if I can. Meanwhile take a look at some photos taken while staying Close to Home!. And if you'd like to see a project I am especially proud of, check out Father Daughter Perspective.
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 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.
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!
Luckham Creative’s service was exceptional from all aspects including price, the ability to meet deadlines, and quality of work. Julian’s attitude is always professional and he is a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend him.
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.
With the combination of our colourful new labels and bright box our product stands out on store shelves and our sales are increasing dramatically. The new labels have had a very positive effect on sales and we are getting many compliments from our distributors both in Canada and in the United States. Julian will soon begin work on our brochure, so we must now prepare for another increase in sales.
We highly recommend Julian and his company Luckham Creative for any design work you may require.
We asked Julian to come up with a friendly but professional look that would really stand out and give our product an edge over the competition. Julian has fulfilled that request very well, we now have the finest labels in the sandwich market. The new labels have been well accepted and have even enabled us to get our products into stores that wouldn’t carry it before. One retail chain made it clear that they would be carrying our products due to the new labels.
(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.
Finding a good graphic designer that truly embraces the design and technical side of things is a rarity. Finding one whose knowledge overlaps both the Internet and the printed page world is even scarcer. Julian Luckham… is one of those. In short, he is an art director’s dream and we feel fortunate to count him as a regular collaborator. It is without hesitation that we highly recommend his services.
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.
