My name is Dave Clarke and I am a freelance graphic designer and artist. I founded Plodocus Design in 2010, and since then I have been creating artwork for big companies, small companies, agencies, individuals – and everyone in between.

I offer a range of creative services for both print and web, including graphic design, art and illustration. I am reliable, practical and easy to communicate with, and my rates are straightforward and highly competitive.

More about me…

Print Design

Perhaps you are promoting an upcoming event or launching a new product, and you need a flyer or poster. Maybe you are after a sleek and modern new business card. It could be that you simply have a report that needs that professional sheen – brochures, flyers, posters, business cards, stationery, tickets, merchandise – if you can think of it, I can help you to design it.

Whether you have a clear idea of what you require or not, please get in touch. I will communicate with you every step of the way to ensure that your ideas come to life in a way that is visually appropriate for you.

If required, I can also help you to source a good value & high quality printing service.


Infographics are an extremely popular way for companies to display facts, figures, survey results and statistics in an engaging and modern way.

My infographic work has appeared on several high profile websites such as BBC News. It has attracted considerable industry praise too; recently included an infographic that I created in their influential ‘best of the week’ list, and professional services giant Deloitte have added some of my work to their brand guidelines website as an example of ‘best practice’. You can rest assured that what I produce will be to the highest standard and will deliver your message coherently and ‘on brand’.

Logo Design & Branding

Whether you are just starting out, or you are refreshing your existing brand, it all starts with a great logo. It should be:

  • Unique
  • Simple
  • Adaptable
  • Appropriate
  • Timeless

I understand how to balance all of these key elements to make your brand stand out in a sea of competitors.

Finished logos will be supplied in vector format – this means that they can be scaled to any size with no loss of quality.

Art & Illustration

In the online age great artwork is often overlooked, but getting this right not only makes promotion more effective via social media and online retailers, but it also means you can offer a complete package to fans.

I have worked with many bands, DJs and musicians to create artwork for releases and other promotional items. I started out as a fine artist, and I have also dabbled in music – this knowledge and passion means that I can thoughtfully interpret your ideas and produce art that ‘fits’.

I am happy to work to a brief – but if you’re not quite sure what you want just drop me an email and we can have a chat.
