Welcome to the Design Sanctuary


A Brief History

I’m Jamie Rudd - a freelance Art Director and Graphic Designer based in Cheltenham, South West UK.

I graduated from the University of Salford in 1998 with a BA Hons Degree in Graphic Design, and went on to work in both traditional and full service design agencies for over 12 years. I have worked with and alongside some of the UK's leading brands including National Trust, The Co-operative, Lloyds Pharmacy, Lloyds Bank, Zurich, Nationwide, Liverpool FC, Pukka Herbs, Samaritans and The Children's Society to name a few. But that's not to say I don’t work with smaller companies too.

In 2011, I decided to make the leap and set up the Design Sanctuary taking with me everything I had learnt from the many great agencies, people and mentors that I have met throughout my career so far.

Whether it's for a small start up company with a big idea, or a large household brand - understanding a client's real needs and delivering meaningful creative is at the heart of what I do. With in-depth knowledge of integrated campaigns, my broad skill set includes creative concepts & strategy, art direction, typography, design for online & offline, brand & corporate identity, visual identity and retouching.

So whether you're a company in need of a brand refresh, or redesign for that matter, or an agency with a need for an experienced creative resource, drop me a line and we can discuss how I can be of service.
