PH Design - The Perfect Solution

Freelance Graphic Designer

My name is Paul Harwood and I am a freelance Graphic Designer. I decided to set up pH Design following a six-year position as the in-house Graphic Designer at Opera Rara, a Grammy nominated independent opera record label.

I now have over 15 years experience as a Graphic Designer and in this time I have continued to develop myself, and my knowledge of Graphic Design packages including Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXPress.

pH Design is not a design agency. Because of this you will always get a personal one-to-one Graphic Design service and you will work directly with myself on all of your design projects.

I work with all types of companies and businesses, big and small, regular clients with big projects, as well as customers with personal projects, within the UK and outside (as far as New Zealand).

Whether you are looking for a new logo design, business cards, or a website design, pH Design will work with you to create a professional design that meets your project's requirements.

Customer Testimonials

When my business needed a complete design overhaul, I turned to pH Design. Paul designed business cards, flyers and letterheads, paying great attention to details such as typography, which was very important to me, and arranged for them to be printed. He also designed a new website, including blog, which fitted my requirements perfectly. pH Design provided an excellent service, one that I would happily recommend.


I was thrilled with the logo and business card that Paul designed for my new speech and language therapy business. I had tricky requirements in that my logo needed to be professional and business like but also appealing to people with small children and teenagers. Paul came up with an ideal design that met all my expectations. The final product is modern, smart and fun. I have already had positive responses to it from other professionals and potential clients. I was also working to a tight deadline and was impressed with how efficiently Paul completed the work while still keeping to very high standards. Paul kept very regular and open communication throughout the process and gave me thoughtful and helpful ideas and advice. I would highly recommend Paul’s work to anyone looking for creative and thoughtful work completed in an efficient and reliable manner.


We initially contacted Paul at pH-design.co.uk to design and build us a company presentation video for the IBC exhibition in Amsterdam. We supplied an outline of what we were looking for and Paul came back to us with a selection of different ideas and solutions, including slideshow and transition effects, as well as a few 3D animated logo stings. While we were waiting for the London 2012 Olympics to finish, so we could use photos of our equipment in the presentation, we asked if Paul could also design us a new A5 double sided flyer. Once again Paul delivered. The flyer was perfect and he also helped us save some money with the printing by suggesting some simple changes to our original request. After the London Olympics had finished, Paul worked very quickly to deliver our full 1080p HD presentation video on time for our exhibition at the start of September. pH Design will be our first choice for any future graphic design or motion graphic projects. Strongly recommend.


Paul took a very simple brief for a logo and turned it into a simple but striking logo. Throughout the process Paul kept me informed and offered plenty of suggestions and variations to make sure the end result was as I envisaged it. A very professional service which I would happily use again and recommend to anyone requiring a very talented designer.


Paul offered to design me a logo for my new blog site, and very quickly came up with some designs that I’m very pleased with, and which will give my site that professional look.


Paul was one of a number of outfits that competed to shape the look and feel of our corporate brand and he came out head and shoulders above the competition. Implementing our ideas with speed and skill whilst utilising his vast experience to perfectly succeed in giving shape to our ideas and thoughts. Throughout the process the communication was excellent and the end product was delivered on time and we look forward to working with him again when the need arises.
