About Me

My name is Emmanuel. I'm passionate about branding and all things creative.

I am a multi-disciplined freelance graphic designer based in Birmingham, UK. 
I specialise in all forms of graphic design including branding, logo design, print, packaging, editorial/brochure design as well as photography. I have 5 years experience working with clients, both commercial and independent, and have had the pleasure of working on a wide range of  projects for start-ups, SMEs and large international companies, NGOs and institutions. This has led me to have variety in my work and helps me maintain a modern way of thinking in my design and consultation projects.  I believe that good design can make a significant positive difference for a brand, and that through creative visual communication a brand’s value can be amplified.

I began my journey into the creative world as a freelance photographer, adopting the monicker “IDRAWWITHLIGHT”, a manipulation of the Greek meaning of the word ‘Photography’ – “drawing with light”. I have since used it as a brand name and tag for my work and projects beyond photography.

A brand is more than just a logo. A brand is a mark, a style, a sound, an attitude, a message and more. I work to create brand collateral that effectively communicates, engages and resonates with your target audience, both online and in print.

In any marketing strategy, print is very important. Whether it’s a one-off flyer, a bespoke brochure, newsletter or letterheads and business cards, print design gives you the opportunity to target specific audiences and get attention.

Whether you’re after branding, rebranding, or anything in between, get in touch and we’ll take it from there.
