Hi, my name is Ollie.
I'm a creative, well-organised and efficient designer and a very logical thinker. My strongest skills lie in UI, Visual and Digital Design, especially within online and mobile environments. I love solving problems, learning new skills and keeping busy.
Originally from London, but now based in Melbourne, I have worked as a designer since 2012. Previous employers and clients range from small independent businesses to global corporations of over 250 people, working on a range of projects including: web, email, mobile, video and print.
I'm always happy to discuss new ideas, opportunities and freelance work, so if you are looking for any sort of creative input for a project, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Feel free to also have a look at some of my previous work, and if you have any questions just give me a shout.
What I Do Best
Web Design & Development
From one-page-wonders to bespoke CMS based E-Commerce websites - I can help every step of the way to translate your idea into a tangible, fully mobile responsive and SEO friendly finished website.
Graphic Design & Branding
Whether you need a fresh new logo for your kick-ass startup or a complete branding overhaul and new visual identity - I can provide you with high quality digital artwork for both online and print.
UI & UX Design
I will ensure that from the very first wireframe to the final project delivery; the user is always kept at the heart of the experience, decisions are made for the right reasons, and to always bear in mind who it is that you are designing for.
But Don't Just Take My Word For It...
“As Ollie's manager, I was happy to leave him to work alone on various client projects, knowing that he would do a fantastic job and that the client was in good hands. Conscientious, pleasant and well mannered; he was always helpful when dealing with co-workers and clients. Under my direction, I would often work closely with Ollie on creative projects for our high-end clients; he took direction onboard, learning with each project as it developed. A bright individual, with a great future ahead”.

"I hired and managed Ollie at AWE Europe Ltd. From the get-go Ollie was a hardworking and creative individual, tackling any task I threw at him. He delivered outstanding work, to spec and on time. His ability to adapt to the needs and culture of the business was also a great asset, especially in such a fast moving industry."

"I would like to recommend Ollie Buchanan for his professional work on our corporate website. Symington Elvery is a small firm of chartered surveyors offering advice to corporations and individuals and in the course of the last month I asked Ollie to make some adjustments to our current website to bring it more up to date. I am very happy with the result and would like to recommend him for his skills as a digital designer. I would also like to add that I found Ollie easy to work with, capable of translating our ideas into a functional design and using his own initiative. He worked quickly and thoroughly, responding to our requests in good time and I thought his fees competitive."

"Mobius Business Technologies engaged with Ollie to re-design all aspects of our web site. After 3 years our site was very dated and it needed an experienced designers expertise. Ollie took the time to understand our business drives and created a new design which not only exceeded our expectations but also provided the exact image of our business that we needed. In addition to this Ollie collaborated with a specialist development agency who were able to take Ollie's designs and create the end product. We can't recommend Ollie enough!"
