About

I have over twenty continuous years experience as an independent designer. I deploy curiousity, craft and commercial understanding with agency and client work alike. With my multifaceted digital and analog design skills, I deliver results that stand out and are successful.

I complement my design skills with a passion for photography. This includes taking on commissions and licensing my imagery to clients and organisations including the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Instagram have chosen me as a suggested user numerous times. My work has also been featured in the national press.

I come from seven generations of printers and was born with the smell of ink in my nostrils and paper between my toes in my father's printshop. His legacy was my inheritance and by the late 1990s I embraced the sea-change of digital communication. Today I retain that heritage in the work I do. And when time allows I can be found discovering new ways to use old printing blocks and setting type by hand to print on a letterpress machine.

Reviews

After putting out a tender to three creative agencies for our website we decided on Andrew Areoff based on his pitch but also on the email communications we had with him before we accepted. He appeared to ask the right questions about our project which gave us the confidence he knew what he was doing and would make the process effortless. Andrew did not hesitate to drive the 1.5 hrs to our location for the initial creative briefing. He led the meeting by asking key questions enabling him to understand our business, establish clear goals for our project and guide us to conclude on what needed to be produced. Throughout the creative process he kept us informed at every stage and came back to us on time with deliverables. He provided sound creative rationale for his work and took on board our comments. Since launch he has continued to monitor the position of our site on several search engines, suggested ways of increasing our visibility and installed traffic tracking for us. His work and customer service are second to none and we would not hesitate to work with him again and recommend his services to others.

I would like to say a very big and well-deserved thank you to Andrew Areoff and his highly-talented team for the brilliant work they have done for our new website at www.universalcover.com. The user experience is exceptional and has been very well-received by our affiliate partners. They are amazed by its white-label capability and simple, intuitive and easy-to-use functionality. Andrew Areoff and his team are a pleasure to work with, were responsive to our needs and provided invaluable guidance over our brands logo, all visual imagery and written sales messages.

Simon Burgess, Director, British Money Limited

The business cards have just come in and I am going to have to thank you for creating such a stunning card for us! Really has come out well. Can’t wait to see what else you can come up with for the brand!

Dean Steele, Managing Partner, Steele Rose Law LLP

I really could go on holiday and leave you and your trusted team to get on with it. I have surrounded myself with the best people in the business!

Neil Inns, Director, AUZi Pty Ltd.

Andrew did a fantastic job designing and styling a wordpress site for Tatton Psychology. He was reliable, flexible, and professional, and the client is really pleased with the results. I will recommend him to others, and hope to work with him on other projects in the future.

Viv Slack, Objectives First

Cheers guys, for all your great work and thanks so much for being a pleasure to work with on our new website. I really do appreciate all that you have done.

Steve Devine, Chairman, Protect Association

We engaged Andrew Areoff in October 2011 to improve our website, transfer our site to a new hosting supplier, and provide us with a practical content management system. By mid-November we were extremely pleased that they had fulfilled their first project for us within the deadline and on budget. We have now worked with him for three months and we hope the relationship continues. They are very responsive to our needs and Andrew, in particular, always supplies us with good advice which makes us think about things in a different, more cost effective and more SEO friendly way. This is exactly what we have been looking for in a Marketing agency.

Colin Grant, Managing Director, Medway Galvanising Company

No job has been too big or too small for the Areoff studio. The team has always responded quickly, even when I have needed a rapid turnaround. The design work has met the brief on every occasion, at prices which have been highly competitive. I have enjoyed very attentive service.

Laura Quirke, NHS London Procurement Partnership

I would like to say that I think you have done a fantastic job with the new web site build. I thought it would be far more problematic, but you provided exactly the sort of help and assistance I needed. You have a proactive approach, great design skill, an eye for detail and a genuine desire to see a great end product. The site is clean, well structured and just “works”. Having tried to build by own site, I know first hand that this is a special skill!

For someone with a small company and a modest budget you have exceeded all my expectations and I will have no doubt at all in recommending you across businesses in my area.

Tony Knight FIA DipPFS, Actuary and Director, Perfect Numbers Limited

Andrew Areoff did a superb job, translating our ambitious wish list into a professional-looking and clear web site, on time and within budget. Even better, I didn’t have to learn “IT speak”, as everything, even technical details, was explained clearly and in plain English. We’re very happy with our new site, and can update it easily.

Jane Coleman, Deputy Town Clerk, Witham Town Council

As an insurance provider, we appreciate how important it is to present our service in a simplistic, yet informative way. Visitors to our site want to learn about our propositions without being bogged down in small print and jargon. Andrew Areoff understood our needs and was able to provide a solution that met our expectations.

Aiden Plumridge, Director, Jubilee Insurance

Usability is our top priority when it comes to customer interaction. We know that if our site is not fast and easy to transact business with, visitors will go elsewhere resulting in a lose, lose scenario for us and the many insurers we work in partnership with. Fortunately, Andrew Areoff provided us with a win, win solution – they met the brief and delivered within pre-defined timescales and budgets.

Paul Schofield, Head of Protection, Moneysupermarket.com

If insurance providers want to enhance their sites, they should go to a web specialist who has experience of working in their sector. It’s a case of horses for courses – with Andrew Areoff you don’t have to go back to insurance basics, they understand the issues facing firms in this sector and tailor-make their solutions accordingly.

Richard Brown, Chief Executive, Moneynet

What Andrew Areoff doesn’t know about SEO probably isn’t worth knowing. He has the knowledge and the skills to implement his knowledge, an invaluable and powerful combination when it comes to SEO.

Simon Cullum, Towergate Partnership

Andrew Areoff’s expert knowledge, passion for internet marketing and ability to transform simple and basic ideas into high-performing websites mean that they are the ‘go to’ firm for our business. They are great to work with unlike the traditional media agency whereby there is an account manager and someone in the background doing the work. What you get with Andrew Areoff is an expert that has integrity and genuinely delivers great results. They have been a key part of my team in getting top 10 results in Google for ‘short tail’ keywords, delivered top quality landing pages for our major properties and has been critical to our success. They will without doubt generate additional visits, traffic, conversion and customer satisfaction without the ‘blowing your own trumpet’ approach that is usual for most internet companies.

Mark Rammond, Head of Internet Marketing, Nationwide Building Society

I have worked with Andrew Areoff on some leading edge Insurance Internet projects for both my company and other leading UK online insurance distributors and suppliers. They manage to incorporate a creative flair with deep technical abilities and attention to detail. I would highly recommend his practice for all aspects of onsite design.

Paul Moran, Director, Insuretec Limited

We have worked with Andrew Areoff for over 10 years. During this time we have received impeccable service, combined with a dedication to excellence that does them very great credit. With their highly professional help, our online sales increased exponentially as soon as we became number 1 in Google.

Stewart Hastings, General Manager, British Insurance

Self Assured Limited have been using Areoff Limited since 2002 for our stationery, print, application form design and other business documents. We find Andrew to be courteous, professional, reasonably priced and always happy to give best advice. We recommend him to anybody else who is looking for a no fuss designer and printer.

Nigel Fenn, Self Assured Limited

The site you made for us has just made page 1, 6th position on a google search so I’m pretty pleased after just a few weeks of being live. Thanks for all your help.

Dave Thornton, www.universalcredit.co.uk

Thank you very much for the excellent job you have done in producing my letterpress business cards and personal stationery that I am sending to prospective employers. So far they have extremely well received and I have had numerous comments on how professional and distinguished they are. When seeking a job as with all Marketing it is imperative to be remarkable, and these certainly are!
