Hi, my name is Ben

I keep your design, typesetting and accessibility creative

Keep Creative is not just a business name, it's how I work. I deliver great design, typesetting, Microsoft conversion and accessibility compliance services, on time and in budget. I provide support to many design studios and government agencies by collaborating on technical aspects of creative projects and their follow-on requirements.

My focus is in delivering fast, accurate and high quality design and typesetting in the Adobe Creative Cloud product suite, and keep your Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents creative, with compliance to WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards. My abilities bring a new creative dimension for accessible design that delivers the requirements of responsible business and government.

My aim is always to provide excellent service and deliver cost-effective solutions. I strive for the highest quality outcomes with an eye for perfection that help you build your brand and reach your targets.

It's not just about making something look nice but, using a strategic approach, I create visually appealing designs.

From small information brochures and multi-page fact sheets, to large annual reports and proposals, to magazines, newsletters and books.

Add interactive form fields or give your documents a little more wow with navigation buttons, menus, audio, video or animation.

You have a great looking Word or Powerpoint template, but how do you use if effectively? I offer simple training methods to ensure you get the most out of your investment.

My

Skills

SOFTWARE

There is always room for learning something new, some new way to create, new methods to improve efficiencies, or new inspirations from the current design trends. And there's also many emerging technologies and software solutions that I explore to ensure that you get the best outcome. So, while I strive to provide you with the best value for my services, I also strive to improve my creativeness, methods and capabilities.

It goes without saying, Adobe Creative Suite (Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, Muse, etc.) and the mainstay for graphic design, and Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint) are exceptionally utilised with a great degree of skill
