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.
Get in touch to talk about web design and graphics etc, or to hire me… I specialise in professional, highly creative, truly bespoke and very affordable web and graphic design services for small and medium-size businesses and individuals.
Through Graphic Alchemy I aim to create great websites – 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.”
