ElectricGhost Art & Design
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Think Different And Make A Difference
We embraced environmental issues long before it was fashionable. We always recommend environmentally sound solutions as a first choice. We also embrace the notion of think different, taking various design tools and using them in creatively different ways. ElectricGhost Art & Design offers design solutions that communicate rather than decorate; ideas that are dynamic and which help make a difference.
Imagination, Innovation Integrity and Independence
Unimpressed by office bound design studios we embrace a path free of ‘the cubicle’. We are free range humans who valued imagination, innovation, integrity and independence.

What We Do
We are an independent design agency that can help you raise your profile and connect more effectively and profitably with your audience.
A Full Service Agency
It can be anything from dynamic PDF publishing and dazzling motion graphics to websites that actually work; from simple brochure to a fully client managed websites (CMS). Effective content is vital to the success of your business, we can help you with your copy for you if you wish. Whilst print work is becoming rarer these days we can offer this if required. We will work with you to discover the right solution for you.
Intimacy Independence and Individuality
We offer the intimacy, independence and individuality of a small agency with the capabilities and services of a large consultancy. We operate a client centred approach that really listens to your needs. We also have a growing wealth of specialist creative talent at our disposal to ensure your specific needs are met. We are happy to work with a range of clients, and with solutions that range from simple to complex.
So Get In Touch
We offer you a free initial no obligation consultation, and look forward to hearing from you.
It all started for me when I scanned in my black and white etchings to colour them in PhotoShop. The handmade textures were vastly superior to any of the synthetic natural media filters or tools offered by any computer paint/graphics software. What I did get from PhotoShop was the ability to layer multiple images and play with layer blending, also adding colours easily. The colours I use all originate from traditional oil paint colours.
I also knew that the type of work I wanted to produce would need to emerge from traditional sources. Now I use PhotoShop as a compositional tool blending scanned photography, drawing, oil and pastel painting, printmaking, found objects and poetry to create my own unique style. This restrained use of PhotoShop, that creates work that allows the scanned material to add its own flavour, is what I term organic digital. I see the images as visual songs. The images and text working like music and vocals.
I now use my images both for personal projects and also on CD Packaging and other promotional materials for clients. They also regularly feature on the covers of ElectricGhost, our Free Monthly Music e-Journal. See ElectricGhost Pulishing in the Business section for how I am planning to sell limited edition art prints.
Design & Branding
Whilst we can work with your existing branding we offer a full design service. This can include both Art and Design solutions. Our branding solutions offer more than just doing logos and involve working to communicate your unfair advantage – those elements that make you special.
Websites That Work
These can be WordPress based or use a variety of other solutions depending on your requirements. They may be new sites, web apps or makeovers for existing sites. We focus on communication and functionality and not just empty 'bells and whistles' gimmicks
Getting Your Message Out There
Whilst a website can be very effective in promoting your services or products it does not guarantee you will get the kind of response you may hope for. More pro-active ways of engaging with your audience include three solutions that we specialise in. These are:
PDF Publishing (Portable Document Format)
A dynamic hybrid publishing format. These PDF documents can be fully interactive, like websites, but offer the graphic and type sophistication of print materials.
Motion Graphics and Video
Dazzling motion graphics can very effectively get your message across. The movie files can be uploaded to the web and used as viral marketing. They can include music and video clips. A recent promo for ElectricGhost can be found here. We offer a free initial consultation, so please get in touch. We can also produce full video solutions.
Having a website is only part of the online solution these days, there is also the potential minefield of Apps. We can offer both Native and Web Apps for you to really communicate to Mobile devices.
A small sample of what we've done for others. Your solutions will be unique for you.
Additionally lets get another plug in for ElectricGhost eJournal. a perfect example of our work with PDF Publishing.
Also the site you're on is a perfect example of how to customise WordPress to make a site that extends the possibilities of the WordPress beyond blogging.
