Introducing Candid

Not just another designer



I'm John Davies, a freelance graphic designer based in Penarth, near Cardiff, South Wales.

My adventures in graphic design began in 2011 in the vibrant seaside town of Penarth, and since then I've carved out a niche in supplying contemporary design and branding solutions to ambitious locals, small businesses, national charities, and everyone in between.

I’m originally from Aberaeron, west Wales, and moved to Cardiff in 2007 to study Architectural Design and, later, Graphic Communication. I am a fluent Welsh speaker.

So, whether you’re in need of a quirky website with all the trimmings or shiny new business cards to impress your customers, I’ve got you covered.

My Approach

I combine spirited enthusiasm with unrivalled expertise to help you communicate clearly and consistently through your brand, website and marketing resources. From the initial consultation through to that moment of joy when you receive your finished product, I’ll work closely with you and your team to deliver on the ideas you aspire to.

Sometimes a creative idea blows you away.
Sometimes it’s simple, but very effective.
Maybe it’s just being brave.
It makes you smile.

That’s the #MomentOfJoy
