Hello, I’m Paul Grogan and welcome to my personal profile page.
I’m a creative. I’m a graphic designer and photographer.
I’ve combined my personality, my two passions, and twenty years experience, in to one – Thimk Design.
Whether it’s logo design or brand development, digital marketing or a piece of classic print I’ve worked across the lot. I’ve helped FTSE 100 companies and SMEs as well as charities and individuals with their brand identity, web presence and communications collateral. Take a look at my portfolio to get a feel for the variety of work that I can help you with. And when I’m not in the studio, I’m out in the field. Sometimes quite literally!
So here’s a little bit about myself. I have worked within the creative industries since graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University in July 1997. I am a vastly experienced graphic designer, art director and photographer working on a huge array of business-to-consumer and business-to-business clients across a wide range of media.
I have owned and operated this small but perfectly formed Manchester based graphic design company forthe last 18 months.
As an experienced graphic designer, I am an expert in brand identity, logo design, corporate guidelines, corporate lierature and communications, brochure design and marketing literature, website design, and art direction.
My extensive experience includes running design studios and performing various roles such as client lead and project managers for major accounts such as Balfour Beatty.
I’m also commissioned and published commercial photographer, using my skills learned from many years of art direction and working with some superb photographers across a variety of projects. This enables me to see both aspects when commissioning or art directing photoshoots.
