Products for Creatives & Design Services for Businesses
Basallt [bas-salt] is Andy Brown. I'm a maker of things by heart and a graphic designer by training.
And it's why I love helping businesses and their people be the best they can be by creating well crafted logos and rock solid websites.
Basallt & Basalt
The business name Basallt [bas-salt] is inspired by the name of a type of rock – basalt (one L). It's a rock that makes up the Giant's Causeway stones here on the north coast of Northern Ireland.
Good chunks of the moon are made from basalt as well. When you look up and see the darker patches – that's basalt.
Listen to me chat away
I've had the fantastic opportunity to be interviewed on a couple podcasts in the past. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Now you can have a listen in as well...
Ian Paget from The Logo Geek podcast interviews me about "Launching a Design Product with Kickstarter"
I also had a lovely chat with Liam Jackson and Caz Cusumano from See Through Design about loads of stuff in this episide – "Developing a Product for designers, colour, print design & ‘Swatchos’"
Trust me with your project
Bragging is not something that comes naturally to me. Probably to a fault. But I also want you to know that you can trust me with your project.
With that in mind it's worth noting that I've written articles for graphic design magazine Computer Arts. And I've also written everything you see in every Print Handbook that I've created.
That's it. Bragging over.
Thousands of sales across the world
I Know What It Takes To Sell
Selling products or services is really hard. And I know.
I've been designing and creating my own products for over 10 years. I've been selling them online to fellow creatives across the globe.
So if you need to work with someone who knows graphic design but also understands that design has a job to do then I might be the person for you.
Perfect Print Design
I’ve Written The Book On It
Need a graphic designer who knows the ins and outs of producing brilliant printed design? Then you're in the right place.
I've written the book on it. Well, one of the books on it.
I have now written, designed and produced five editions of The Print Handbook – a guide for graphic designers, helping them to produce beautiful printed design.
