Hi, I’m Simon Shaw, I started SMS Creative Services Limited in 2011, operating in Creek Creative Studios, Faversham, Kent.

Over the years I have worked in many different fields of business (including in a field in Cornwall – bulb picking, at the tender age of 16!), apart from that job, I worked within mainly large scale corporate organisations as a designer and/or photographer. 

I studied and qualified in Graphic Design, then worked in-house specialising in corporate design and photography.

Check out my website links menu above to see examples of  design, photography, art based commission/project images and blog articles. SMS Creative Services Limited works with small start-up companies to large corporate organisations taking on commissions for graphic design and/or photography. My specialist areas are: corporate/event photography, logo, stationery, leaflet, flyer, newsletter, poster, label and website design.

All photography work is covered by public liability and indemnity insurance and final images can be supplied to clients via my (password protected) ‘client area’ pages. Outside of design/photography commissions I have been involved within local art based projects, please see the ‘art’ link on this website to check out projects.

SMS Creative Services Limited’s privacy policy is below.

All services offered, whatever size of commission, are priced at competitive rates. If you would like to discuss an assignment or ask about any of my photographs, designs or artworks, please contact me on 07885503193, fill in the comment boxes below, or email me at enquiry@smscreativeservices.co.uk
