It’s nice to know that I have never had to advertise Carta due to recommendations by my clients. That says a great deal about ‘word of mouth’. And it’s also nice to know that I must be doing a good job.
My name is Neil Coe and I established Carta Graphic Design in 2004 after a move from the midlands to Penzance, Cornwall. Starting part-time I slowly built my client base and by 2006 had gone full-time due to the demand. I haven’t looked back since.
I believe in being who you want to be and not conforming to a stereotype. I like working for myself. I feel it gives me the freedom to work closely with my clients. I never outsource design but I sometimes collaborate with other talented illustrators and programmers if I need a skill set beyond my abilities. Being able to help a client present their company’s brand to the world in a stylish, personalised and consistent manner.
If you would like me to work with you on your next design project please get in touch.
After finishing 4 years at art college and gaining my HND in Illustration and Information Graphics in 1998, I was employed as a junior designer at a design studio in Leamington Spa. I then moved on to join another successful designers in 2000 where I designed for 4 years before I moved to the end of the country and established Carta. I learnt almost everything about the industry in my time at these studios and wouldn’t be where I am without them (Thank you Les and Mark for my time with you).
