Responsively re-designed for 2013! Graphic Alchemy is my online portfolio, a place for people to get in touch with me and also a kind of digital playground, where I can try out cool new things in web design and development.
I'm an experienced graphic and web designer with a real passion for creative and functional design. A background in art and illustration informs my personal style of graphic design and website layout and this is backed up with a knowledge of the latest front-end coding and development techniques.
You can view some recent examples of my web and graphic design work in the portfolio section…

“Ian at Graphic Alchemy was amazing to work with – he gave me everything I asked for in my website and also a great deal more too. I was thoroughly impressed by his professionalism, imagination and efficiency, not to mention his prices! I have been recommending him to everybody, and am looking forward to working with him again soon.”

“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. He's the man to call – a modern alchemist.”

“Ian is an absolute joy to work with. He has a real artist's eye for design and is totally fast and professional. The web site he made for me exceeded my expectations in every way.
I explained to him my aesthetic concept and what I wanted to convey and he was able to run with it and create something truly unusual and of a caliber that is not often seen. I was so pleased with it that I immediately hired him to make another web site for another business I am involved in. I would recommend his work to anyone.”
