Clean and attractive design

Design is more than just the art of crafting an idea and bringing it to life on the page and screen, it requires an ability to accurately understand and interpret what a client wants and needs and to provide that in a clean, attractive package. Sharpshooter has these skills, particularly in the areas of corporate literature and corporate identity.

Sharpshooter’s house style is clean and uncluttered, allowing information to be communicated in an easily-accessible, attractive format without unnecessary distraction.

Clean and precise production

Production is a skill. It requires knowledge, speed, a keen eye for detail, the ability to anticipate and eradicate potential problems and, above all, precision. A wealth of experience – beginning in the days of galleys, grid paper and rubylith – ensures that your project is brought smoothly and efficiently to completion in the shortest time possible.

As the old adage says, if a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. This principle lies at the core of Sharpshooter’s business model. Pride is taken in the work produced and clients appreciate this fact.

Profile

Philip Byrne
Production Artist Graphic Designer

I began my career as a finished artist in 1986, in the days when rubylith, acetate and repro cameras were the tools of the trade. Shortly thereafter I moved on to creating digital artwork on that new beast, the Apple Macintosh, using QuarkXPress 1 and Illustrator 88.

Now, 33 years later, outsourcing is my game and I’ve garnered 19 years' valuable business experience and I continue to specialise in corporate literature in particular for both print and digital distribution. Responsive website front end design and development using the Bootstrap framework is a new addition to my skills.

Best of all, I still love my work.

Andrew McQuillan

I have worked with Philip as both a colleague and a frequent freelance contractor for almost 20 years. For artwork and layout, he is simply the best I’ve encountered – accurate, speedy, and technically top notch. He also has the valuable ability to anticipate and snuff out potential complications before you’ve even noticed them. I highly recommend Philip to anyone seeking a strong design resource.

David Cairnduff
Account Director
Zero-G

I have no hesitation in recommending Philip. I have worked with him on numerous projects and find his work to be without equal. He has superb attention to detail – I know that once I hand over a project to Philip that the work will be done on time and to the highest standards. He is a great freelance asset to our team and I enjoy the peace of mind I get working with him.

Neil Condron
Director
Condron

I'm really happy to endorse Philip Byrne, we have successfully worked together on countless projects over the past 20 years, initially as his employer in XMi and more recently as a client. In essence – Philip’s creative skills are exemplary and his production skills are flawless, add to that total reliability and a keen price.

Mary Doherty
Managing Director
Red Dog

Philip has been our freelance support of choice in Red Dog for many years when it comes to the laying out of larger documents. We know we just have to send Philip the approved design, the client’s content and we will get back a fully laid out draft. His attention to detail is the main reason we use him again and again as we know we simply check over it once and off it goes to client – probably with a possible 100% record of us having to make no changes to his work. What more can I say?
