Want your designs to stand out from the crowd and look professional?

Beautifully designed websites, logos, print products & digital graphics. Experiences that look great and are a joy to use.

To find out more about what I offer and how I can help you, email me at lucy@lucyrigley.co.uk

Are your designs looking out of date or getting lost in a sea of similar ones?

Get help with a zingy new website, clever logo or make your social media graphics pop.

I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach – I take time to get to know your brand and work closely with you through the design process.

Do you find the digital space daunting?

If you are new to business, I take your brand information then unravel and sort it into easy-to-use, appealing digital and print design solutions.

I help get your key messaging across simply and create services and products which make you feel proud of and which your customers enjoy using.

Are you an established business embarrassed of your current designs or your content no longer fits your ideal customers?

I am able to help you with everything from logos and the feel of your brand to getting you a lovely website set up and designing any print materials you may need such as leaflets and posters.

With well over 2 decades worth of experience plus a first class Interactive Design degree, you are in safe hands. I will create you something we are both proud of and which your customers will find easier and nicer to use. 

Are you struggling to keep up with your clients?

If you are a design, marketing or development agency needing extra design support or a sole trader or SME with no time to work on the design side of things, I can help you and be your extra pair of hands.

Your clients are always at the forefront of my mind. With design experience across many platforms I have a wealth of knowledge which I can apply to any project.

I have oodles of experience in the Adobe suite plus other applications such as Figma and Canva. I’ve freelanced over 13 years now so easily pick up how to use applications, even if I haven’t used them before. I fit well into teams and can be introduced to clients as part of your company when needed.

“I worked with Lucy for approaching two years in my capacity as Senior Marketing Manager with Visit York.

During that time we worked together on many and various projects, from annual and seasonal printed guides to digital assets and 48 sheet outdoor posters.

I found Lucy to be extremely personable, very easy to work with and the quality of her work was always exemplary.

Highly recommend!”

"Thanks to Lucy I now have a modern, new and secure website that matches my beautiful teal and grey branding.
It has been really lovely working with another small York business (even though we did nearly everything easily over the phone and online). Lucy took the time to understand my business and with her wealth of industry knowledge she was able to offer me a perfectly matched answer to my issues. She has been a godsend and has even cleverly added in some hidden functionality for a possible future direction."

“I would definitely highly recommend Lucy.

I have been over the moon with everything she has supplied. It's so nice to work with someone who understands exactly what you want - sometimes better than you understand yourself. Working with Lucy has been a handy stress reducer.”

“Creative. Brilliant. Recommended.
Lucy designed a new logo and strap-line for my Sales Marvel business and working with her was a breeze.

Lucy nailed the (rather woolly) initial brief and gently surfaced my actual priorities for the design, learning about my business and, as importantly, my target audience. She was creative and thought of a number of issues I hadn't before considered.

Interacting with Lucy was easy and "low friction" too. I didn't feel rushed, which I have before as I struggle a bit with my mental health from time to time. Lucy was patient and professional throughout.

I would definitely recommend Lucy for any creative or graphic design needs your business may require.

Thanks, Lucy!”

Looking to hire a designer or need extra design help?

I can be the design support you need.

Maybe you are a busy design agency and are looking for a new senior or lead designer or maybe you need some ad-hoc design work, for instance when your designer is busy or on holiday?  I work with several agencies as and when they need me. No need to be local to York – I work well remotely and love working across different projects.

Email me if you think my design skills would suit what you’re looking for.

Need help with something I don’t offer?


I work closely with a York based freelance creative developer plus local social media experts, marketing experts,  SEO experts, copywriters and photographers so please let me know if you’d like a recommendation.
