Carys-ink

Illustration, Design, Graphic Design

Experienced illustrator and graphic designer, delivering ‘wholesome creative’ for people doing good things.

Specialist in digital illustration and branding for organisations in the environmental, education and creative sectors. Working with business and non-profit/charities to help them build a strong identity and convey their message better - in an engaging, visual way that will appeal to their audience.

Considered creative, which takes into account the individual client's specific needs. The well-being of their product/message is always key.

Carys-ink is the name of my business, my real name is Carys Tait.

I am a member of the Association of Illustrators and local illustration collective Drawn in Bristol, as well as a Go Green 'Do It' Member, working towards improving the green credentials of my business.

I work directly with clients or in collaboration with design agencies & marketers.

You’re an individual, keen to work with others who share your beliefs and passions, and to do good things together. You’re not looking for a fast, cheap visual hit, but rather something which takes into account your specific requirements, that will strengthen and be nutritious for your organisation.

Some examples of what I can help you with:

1. Develop a Brand Identity or Logo

2. Create illustrations which add character and vibrancy to your brand and communications

3. Make your whole offering, marketing output and/or resources more visually appealing

4. Convey your message or explain information in a more fun and friendly way

If you'd like to discuss how I could help with something you're working on, or you'd like some friendly advice on a possible project, please do feel free to get in touch - I'm always happy to discuss !
