a passion for creative web & graphic design…

Ian Forster, graphic and web designer at Graphic AlchemyI'm an experienced designer with a passion for creative web & graphic design and front-end web development. A background in art and illustration informs my personal style of design and I like to build responsive websites using the latest front-end design and development tools including HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery etc.

⁄ ⁄  A few kind words…

I receive web and graphic design requests from a wide variety of businesses and individuals and I create work ranging from creative and artistic to subtle, clean and corporate in style.

I really enjoy this interesting variety of work and the challenges it can bring. In this section are just a few appreciative comments from some previous clients…

“Ian Forster transformed a few half-formed ideas from me into a highly attractive, multi-layered and very sophisticated website. A website that has created much interest in my work, and been a truly fruitful platform to the outside world. He is both artist and pragmatist – creative and punctual – and I cannot recommend his work highly enough…
