Over the years I have collaborated with a small network of expert designers, developers and print suppliers on a range of branding, design and website projects. I’ve also worked with marketing and media groups as a creative consultant – always with the client’s objectives in mind. I design not for myself, and not for the client, but in order to achieve their goals, which means designing for their market.
There’s a few things in the works. I like to work as a trusted partner, which allows ambitious and established businesses to achieve their outcomes with confidence and ease. Get in touch for a chat.

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM GENEROUS TALENTED PEOPLE
Managing Director, STEEL London
Director, Nude Design Studio
“I have worked with Clare on a number of clients for a number of projects, from start-ups to luxurious brands and her ability to adapt to each client’s needs is impressive. Her scope of experience has bought value to both my business as well as my clients and I have no hesitation in entrusting her with any brief. Clare has played an integral part in designing entire brand identities, websites and marketing collateral and all pieces have met the brief, are within deadline and on budget. Her vast experience and quality of work is what sets Clare apart from many in her field. Her ideas are endless, her passion for what she does – clear and the final products speak for themselves.”
Director, Mentor Marketing
“From designing a logo to supervising photography, crafting a pithy headline or art direction on a TV shoot, Clare has enthusiastically thrown herself at all challenges. It didn’t take me long to realise that she was happy to take on more and more. So much so that she ended up dealing with a demanding national franchise food chain by herself. Everything is pursued with good humour, style and skill.”
Creative Director, The Brains Trust
“Clare is a top notch designer who is also a great joy to work with. As a designer, she is both talented and skilled in that she knows her craft well but also has the intuition and natural sense to create excellent work. She thinks holistically about all aspects of her projects, the audience, the message, the medium. As a person she is responsible, trustworthy, charming, and generally a joy to have around. If she hadn’t moved back to Australia, I’d hire her again in London in a moment.”
Operations Manager, Tommy Digital Creative Agency (UK)
“Clare Rowlands has always provided the highest level of creativity coupled with true professionalism. I cannot speak highly enough about her ability to take a brief and consistently deliver stunning and memorable work. Clare is not only truly gifted but also has that rare attribute of being very personable, trustworthy, consistent and reliable. I highly recommend her. In fact, Clare is so good that I gave her an acknowledgement in my first book – The Pitching Bible.”
