Looking for a valued partner in your business branding journey? I can help throughout the whole process; from business naming to domain registration, site hosting, Google MyBusiness registration, supply of all print collateral and business stationery, web search optimisation, setting up Canva social media team spaces, advertising campaigns and much more…
I am a First Class BA Hons educated graphic designer, originally from Surrey/London, now living and working in Taunton, Somerset.
I set up CFGD in 2011 from a remote rural (and stunningly beautiful) North Devon location, initially working on design projects for local businesses, building a healthy reputation. In addition to this, I also began contracted freelance work for TE Connectivity, working on global design projects.
I thrive on challenges from a wide variety of sector backgrounds including food, tourism, tech, finance, beauty, schools, trades and much more.
I am equally as excited by helping local startups make an outstanding first impression as I am working on tight deadlines for national and global brands.
My unique skill set will enrich your creative, marketing or business aims.

“I would highly recommend Chris Ford Graphic Design. I’ve worked on several projects with Chris, he never fails to add value to any job, very creative, always on time and a pleasure to work with.”
Steve Barnes, PowerPoint-Plus
“Working with Chris was a real pleasure. He quickly grasped the objective and was able to create the perfect twist to my brief. Excellent graphic designer, extremely professional with just the right amount of rock n’ roll mixed in.”
Tamsin Cook, Rue Des Bleus
“Chris provided an excellent service – accessible, responsive, professional and friendly. I had a concept for a logo and he created it even better than I could have imagined. It is also worth noting that he gave me a good steer when I started drifting too far away from my initial idea. 100% Customer Satisfaction.”
James Baker, Cannon Wrestling
