Welcome to Graphic Alchemy

Graphic Alchemy is my online portfolio, a place for people to get in touch with me and also a kind of digital playground, where I can try out cool new things in web design and development.

I'm a designer with a passion for all aspects of creative web & graphic design, UI design and front-end web development. A background in art and illustration informs my personal style and I like to both design and code beautiful, modern and responsive websites using the latest design and development tools and techniques.

A few kind words…

My work ranges from creative and artistic, to subtle, clean and corporate in style. Here are just a few appreciative comments from previous clients…

  • … A hugely talented designer, full of good ideas and with the ability to put them in to practice, and it's always a pleasure working with him.

  • Great job on re-designing our company website, making it compatible on all different types of technology, more secure, the introduction of Wordpress content management and google analytics. Creative, tech savvy, understood our needs and delivered on time.

  • Ian at Graphic Alchemy was amazing to work with – he gave me everything I asked for in my website and also a great deal more too. I was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism, imagination and efficiency. I have been recommending him to everybody, and am looking forward to working with him again soon.

    Alexander Gordon Smith

  • The quality of work, the attention to detail and the ability to interpret our sometimes challenging requests, have meant we simply would not consider going somewhere else.

    Akur Capital
    • Tom Frost
    • (Director, Akur Capital)
  • Ian transformed a few half-formed ideas from me into a highly attractive, multi-layered and very sophisticated website. A website that has created much interest in my work, and been a truly fruitful platform to the outside world. He is both artist and pragmatist – creative and punctual – and I cannot recommend his work highly enough.

    Dr. Martin Shaw
    • Dr. Martin Shaw
    • (Acclaimed storyteller and founder of The Westcountry School of Myth and Story)
  • A very creative individual… Ian enjoys his work and always puts 100% into projects and he always replies very promptly to requests.
