Freelance Graphic Designer
Designer, entrepreneur & hats
Hello – I’m Mark Narusson a freelance graphic designer based in Birmingham and the founder of Mark Narusson Design. My passions are WordPress web design and logo design. I offer my creative services to businesses and entrepreneurs locally and internationally.
Apart from running a successful design studio, I also publish articles on my graphic design blog. This is done with a view to helping business owners and other designers get more insights into starting and running a successful business.
I’ve been a pro designer since the 1990s and have amassed a whopping 20 years of creative industry experience. And I still love it!
You can check out some of my freelance work projects over at my graphic design portfolio.
How I got interested
Since the early age of 4 (that was a long time ago) I’ve loved to draw and create things. Coloured pens, paint, paper, glue, glitter – you name it I’ve used it – and been covered in it.
During my design agency days, I would create print marketing assets and design websites. I’ve had the pleasure of working with clients such as Nationwide Building Society, BBC Sports Personality of the Year and the Stella Artois Tennis Championships to name a few.
Don’t get me wrong – working for an agency was great, but I always knew that I wanted to do something more challenging. So when I had the opportunity to try freelancing then I jumped at the chance. So in 2011 I setup my graphic design studio, which I absolutely love.
I never thought I’d run a business (I now have two) or become a self employed graphic designer. So it’s funny how life leads us places we never thought we’d end up. Working for yourself can be challenging at times, but on the whole it can be very rewarding.
