INDELIBLE: Graphic design & creative thinking

Your designer should be passionate about his or her craft. Finding the right person to help realise your project can be a risky and tedious process. Here’s what I can bring to the table:

Industry Experience

As a professional designer since 1983, and having been involved in television and film graphics, packaging, corporate identity, web design, sound, video and 3d computer animation, I have first hand experience in many different facets of media industries.

Creative Confidence

Whether you have a vision already or are looking for the perfect idea, I’m committed to each project and excited to work with you to find the perfect solution.

Technical Expertise

From creating artwork to designing websites, having one person to connect with for any idea that you may have saves time, money & frustration.

A wide range of skills

Listed below are some of the creative services I can provide.

Print design & artwork

With experience of high-end corporate identity design, identity guidelines, of flyers & posters over the years for a multitude of major clients, I can assure you that together we can create a dynamic and captivating print design to get you the image you’re looking for.

Identity design, implementation

A logo is an extension of your style – usually the first thing someone sees before they discover what you do. Creating an image that represents your business is a crucial step. With my 30+ years of design experience in various disciplines, together we can create the perfect image to represent your business.

Interface design for web,
site building & hosting

Using content management systems such as WordPress and Joomla, and with high quality hosting services, I can create unique web sites customised to your requirements, and which you can easily edit and maintain yourself.

Image retouching & restoration

Capturing from original photographs and artwork, transparencies and negatives, I can create vibrant photo montages, mock-ups and illustrations, and repair damage to precious vintage photographs, breathing new life into old memories.

Typography & font creation

Letterspacing in logotypes and other artwork is often overlooked. Spacing characters correctly to achieve a visual consistency can vastly improve a brand image. I can build fonts from any physical or electronic artwork, from typefaces to icon sets, to make document creation and web authoring easier and less time consuming.

Software training online

I’ve trained students and staff in institutions such as the London College of Fashion, Reed Publishing and the V&A in Photoshop, Illustrator and Filemaker Pro, as well as in popular business software. Individuals, groups, and online options are available. Just drop me a line to discuss.

Looking for something else?

With over 30 years of design and related experience, there’s lots I can contribute. Visual identity, promotional materials, merchandise, graphics for print, image improvement and retouching, typefaces, and even audio editing. Just drop me a line describing your project and we can talk about the steps needed to make it the best it can be!

reflects my business perfectly

I asked Jon to design and build my web site and am really pleased with it. It does everything that I asked, works simply and across all platforms and the colours and design reflect my business perfectly. I had a zillion little tweaks and changes to throw at him every time I changed my mind about something and Jon was patient and always quick to help. I definitely recommend him if you need a web site!

inspiration and discovery

We hired Jon Tubmen and Indelible for image inspiration and discovery, logo design and home page visuals for our new brand, Alchemy Hypnotherapy. Jon immediately grasped the multi-dimensional design brief and helped guide us through a process of sourcing a multitude of images that could help convey our brand values and tell a story in a visual narrative.
Jon was patient and nurtured our ever-evolving needs and we enjoyed the two-way creative process. Once settled on the logo concept and the home page design image, Jon brought them to life.  He is indeed our first-choice go-to designer to add his creative alchemy.  We have no hesitation in recommending his services.

clear, simple and stylish

I am very pleased with the web site that Jon designed for me. It is clear, simple and stylish, which is just what I asked for. He has responded promptly and helpfully to my questions. I would thoroughly recommend him.

highly recommended

Jon worked with us on re-creating a troublesome font we’d had a lot of issues with. He was everything you’d want from a designer, extremely thorough, listened carefully to the brief, explained all that could be done so we could understand it(!), was in communication at all times, bang on time with everything and of course delivered a job that worked beautifully. We even got a follow up email months later to check everything was ok. Highly recommended!

superb graphic design

Jon’s background and experience in design and site-building meant he was the obvious choice for the sites I was planning. Jon patiently and expertly made my content come to life. I was in safe hands with superb graphic design, functionality and the web site’s ease of use.

When I wanted the odd tweak or the addition of a new design Jon was always happy to take on board the craziest of ideas and make them work. He really has the patience of a saint and the skills of a master digital craftsman. I’m sure you will love working with him.

a site of rare beauty

My website emerged from Jon’s genius like a Goliath Birdwing from a chrysalis. It is a site of rare beauty, and reflects the image & ethos of the bookshop with its craftsmanlike motifs and iconic design. Jon heard my needs and met them, beyond my expectations. The process of development was never less than fully enjoyable. I urge you to consider [him] before deciding on anyone else for your website.
Thank you Jon.

offering incisive ideas...

Thanks to Jon, I have a new dimension to my creative venture. Being a children’s book author and educator, I wanted a website that is attractive, clear and versatile. Working with me, Jon carefully listened to my needs, while offering incisive ideas of his own to help me come up with the perfect set-up for promoting my books. Completing tasks that were beyond my expertise, Jon also has given me the power to take control of my space to further develop my vision and the relationship with my targeted users. He has helped me create a special little world.
