How I work

My unique way of working will lift stress and ensure a job, which exceeds your expectations, is delivered on time and in budget.

Delivering the best creative solution

My designs are clear, effective and eye-catching, so will be noticed. This gives you the best chance of getting your message across.

A picture is worth 1000 words

One of my strengths is strong imagery. As I produce my own illustrations in-house, I can offer clean crisp images at a very competitive price.

Excellent value for money

One of the greatest benefits of working with Mary Gorton Design is that the job is never delegated to a junior but benefits from my experienced eye from start to finish. All the expertise of a senior London consultancy designer is yours, and at an affordable price.

Ethical quoting

Realistic quoting is one of my core values. As achieving the best job possible is my number one priority, the quote allows enough time to put in the work needed to obtain an excellent result, so I do not charge extra for corrections and I do what is needed to get the job right.

About Me

I am an independent graphic designer with 30 years experience. Before founding Mary Gorton Design I spent 14 years working for London design consultancies managing blue-chip accounts such as Nationwide Building Society and Post Office Counters.

Since 2003  Mary Gorton Design has been producing effective graphic design solutions for local authorities including Epsom & Ewell, Reigate & Banstead, Spelthorne, Woking, Guildford and Elmbridge Borough Councils and charities including Tearfund, CAFOD and Care. I also design branding for the private sector and handle the medical documents for the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine.

I love working with Mary.
We talk for a bit about our objectives for each project and she quickly understands how to translate that to people through design. Mary’s drafts that hit the mark right from the start, and she very simply expresses our key messages with I-want-to-read-that designs.
