GRAPHIC DESIGN \ WEB DESIGN
ILLUSTRATION \ ART
Hello. I am Ros (Jelbert) Ingram, a Freelance Graphic Designer, illustrator and artist with over 35 years’ experience of studio / freelance graphic design based in Southampton, Hampshire. I work with businesses of all sizes who are either starting-up or developing; whether you need a complete brand identity, a redesign of your website or a new creative route, I’ll work with you to create something that not only looks fabulous but gets results. My freelance clients have led me to design for a wide range of business sectors; this variety in my work builds and maintains a fresh way of thinking. Previous design clients include World Sailing, Skandia, Bacardi, Remarkable Group, New Look, IGP Media and 6G Creative. Based in Southampton, Hampshire, I work with clients all over the country, both remotely and in-house, and I’d love to discuss your requirements.
A creative concept is that all-important unifying theme that can be used across all campaign messages and communication channels. It is that 'big idea” that captures audience interest and inspires them to take action. I will present creative ideas for a one-off project or explore how an idea can expand to a full campaign and determine if it will work across multiple media channels.
A unique and memorable logo that communicates the correct brand message is paramount to any company, large or small. Logo and brand identity design is an integral part of any successful business and, when done correctly, will make a business more profitable, attracting the desired target market. As a freelance graphic designer I can offer creative design solutions specifically to your requirements.
Lliterature can still play a key factor in spreading the message about your brand, service or product. - whether printed or digital. Posters, emailers, banners, flyers, brochures, adverts, exhibition banners, signage and vehicle graphics, for example, all help to increase awareness of your business and bring you new customers. I work alongside several printers to offer projects on time and on budget.
Whether I am creating an online advertising banner, social media graphics, an emailer or a new website, I will work with you to ensure creative impactful designs every time. I offer website designs which not only look great, but which are also simple to use by both you and your visitors. As standard, our website designs are SEO primed, and responsive, so they look and work perfectly on any device.

I am a freelance illustrator based in Southampton, Hampshire and work for many different clients, large and small. Previous clients include The Tower of London, Zanna Van Dijk, Plan UK and the Remarkable Group. Illustrations add a unique aspect to companies' literature or can help strengthen a message. I have several different illustrative styles; computer drawn illustration, pencil drawings by hand and a looser hand-painted style. Previous projects include illustrations for books, videos, menus and corporate literature. One of my more unusual illustration projects was to plan and illustrate an overseas theme park! If you would like to see further illustration examples please get in touch or view my mini portfolio here (.pdf). My most recent project is a catalogue of NFT digital artwork which I am hoping to list on kalamint.io soon

I recently ran a pet portrait offer over on Instagram (@rosaindingram), in a bid to keep busy and spread smiles during the Coronavirus lock down.
