I was told to start any blog post with a witty or eye catching title, unfortunately I’m more a visual guy than wordy person! (Also I have a distinct lack of humour ;-).
I’ve been wanting to write a blog about my journey from PAYE employee to starting my own web and graphic design agency for some time… well this is it, hopefully this will be the first of many blog posts.
So my name is Lee, I’ve been working as a designer for nearly 20 years, that figure is quite shocking, as I still consider myself fairly young! 2 years off the big four-O. But with two kids and a fairly healthy tinge of grey to my rapidly receding hair line, maybe I need to face facts and realise I am ‘getting on’ in life!
In 2017 I left a well paid job in the public sector to branch off and do my own thing. It was a hard decision, as I have a young family and I also enjoyed the job I was in, I’d been there for nearly 15 years, but I felt that if I didn’t leave when I did, I’d never leave! So I decided to take the plunge.
I started Bodhi Design a few months ago in mid 2017. I wanted to start a design agency that I could have full control over the creative output. I also wanted to create an agency that would appeal to start up companies and SME’s (Small and medium-sized enterprises / businesses) in the Wirral area. I’ve always felt that some design agencies can feel quite imposing to these companies, who may just want a new logo design or a small website. Sometimes the technical jargon and marketing spiel we use can be a bit too much, I want to create an agency which is pretty straight talking and open with start-up and SME’s and hopefully create relationships that last a long time.
I think that is enough for now, I hope you can get a taste of what I am hoping to achieve. Please check back for further blog posts in future.
Until next time
