Unique visual identities for brands, individuals and projects.

Welcome to Arbs Design, my name is James Arbuckle. For the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to help bring brands and projects to life through design.

My goal is simple: to help you achieve a brand identity both you and your customers will love, through a personal and affordable service. If you’ve got a project in mind, I’d love to hear your ideas.

Why use an independent designer like me?

Good question. In short, you’ll get a personalised service offering quality, bespoke design at a lower rate than working with an agency.

    • Lower fees: No agency premiums, no middlemen, no big overheads, just a fair price and quality, bespoke design.
    • Thorough creative process: From the brief, to research, to sketching, to digital ideas… your work will be unique, thought-through and made just for you. Made to last, and made to make an impression.
    • A personal service: Work directly with me, the designer, to achieve exactly what you need. Turn your vision into a reality, while any changes, alterations or re-designs are just an email away.


 Brand Identity is More Than Just a Logo. Here’s what else I offer:

Logo Design / Visual Identity

The starting point for all businesses is a well-designed logo. Often the face of the business and one of the most important elements of visual branding. Without that ‘face’ how are customers supposed to recognise your business?

Design for print

In a crowded world of promotional messages and material, you need to make a great first impression. Bespoke design with a consistent look & feel will help deliver the message to your customers, in style.

Design for digital

With so much business being done online, it’s important to look good on digital platforms too. Whether its banners or social media posts, make sure your content is well branded so all those likes, shares, views and clicks contribute to your brand image.

“The Result Was Exceptional”

“I approached Arbs Design because I need a logo done within a reasonable budget. The result was execeptional, James come up with a design which I am very happy with and I feel reperesents the value of my company. One thing I liked was how quickly James responded to request and changes to the design.
