Hi, my name is Kieran Harrod



I'm a Graphic Designer with bags of creativity and a passion for integrity. I work on brands, websites, printed materials and app UI/UX, but whatever the medium I excel both creatively and professionally.



Working Together

That's what I like to do most, work with people like you. Putting your business on the front foot, be that with a striking logo and brand or perhaps a smart, professional website, that's the goal.


If you're looking for great design implemented by someone who sees the value of great relationships in business, then do get in touch.



Recommendations



Kieran did a terrific job with the Henmore Health branding and the solution expertly met the brief we provided. It was great to work with a professional brand designer who offered significant value for money and someone we would be happy to recommend.

Kieran understood the importance of embedding local culture in a brand that enjoys its heritage but is strong enough to venture anywhere. We are proud of Henmore Health, proud of the brand and proud to serve the people of Ashbourne where it was born. Few I think can capture this in graphic design the way Kieran has. Thank you.



Danny Smart - Henmore Health

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.



Aftab Rehman - Scoops Diner

I started working with Kieran a few months back when he helped me brand a new company. I can’t say enough about him. He’s professional, genuine, talented and is very knowledgeable on a range of topics. If you’re looking for a Graphic Designer in the Derby area, contact Kieran.



Liam Cresswell - ChemClarity

We were a new business start-up looking to create a fun but professional image for our company. After talking with a number of graphic designers we chose Kieran, who appeared to be the best fit for us. We have since been delighted by all the work he has done for us and are looking forward to working closely with him as our business grows.



Andrew Jenner-Dyer - Skyland Soft Play

Design services provided by Kieran showed a real understanding of my business and a passion to help it succeed. Even with a short deadline Kieran was able to produce a creative and distinctive advert and a well written expansive editorial about my business. I am always happy to recommend him to others.



Trevor Ellis - Automated Gateways

…we would like to thank you for all your hard work and patience in designing the new IPC website. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and people think it looks excellent.

So thank you.



Jonny Gibson - International Presbyterian Church

We are really happy with the comprehensive branding solution that Kieran has put together. It was very important for LEL to have impact and be visible to the public as well as supporting the cyclists with essential kit. Kieran seamlessly brought together multiple elements to give the brand continuity and help position LEL as a noteworthy cycling event.



Danial Webb - London Edinburgh London

The work that you carried out for me was absolutely what I was looking for. From concept to completion and in particular what struck me the most was the fact that nothing was to much trouble to make sure I was happy with the end product which has certainly given my business the professional edge.



Chris Poplar - CJP Engineering Services

Sincerely enjoyed working with Kieran.

From start to finish we received nothing but professional and quality customer service. I never once had to chase anything up! The end product was a set of logos that we really love and that met the brief provided.

Kieran was not the cheapest designer out there but there is definitely a high level of quality and service, you get what you pay for!

I unreservedly recommend his services to anyone in need of a talented professional graphic designer! Thanks again Kieran, look forward to working with you again in future!

Thank you for designing such a distinctive and versatile logo for me, Kieran. I have been able to use the different versions of it for different purposes, whilst still keeping my branding consistent. The logo fully meets the design brief and I am very happy with it. I look forward to working with you again.

Logo Project Delivery, What Files Should You Expect? »

At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
