Hello! I'm Barry Sawyer.
(the man behind Snap Designs)
A bit about me
I have been involved in graphic design for pretty much my whole working life (even at school the only subjects I really took a shine to were graphic design and technical drawing). My first job was in a small in-house print room, where I gained experience in the design and print process from beginning to end. Alongside this I attended the London College of Printing to add a qualification to my experience.
In all the other jobs I had after leaving this first job I have at some point found myself at a computer with design software on screen pulling together flyers, posters, newsletters, magazines, etc.
In 2001 I took up my first full-time role as a graphic and web designer working with Elucid8, a small multi-media production company based in south-west London. When Elucid8 ceased trading in 2007 I was encouraged by the owner to set-up on my own and continue working with the existing client base.
So on Friday 29 June 2007 I switched off my Elucid8 computer for the last time. The weekend was spent moving my gear to a new office in Wimbledon where a friend had kindly offered me some desk space. On Monday 2 July 2007 I switched on the that same computer and continued where I had left off on the previous Friday.

We’ve worked with Snap Designs for a number of years and have always found them to be both creative and responsive to our needs. They always understand what we are trying to achieve, and come up with great suggestions for how we can accomplish this. When we’re working to tight deadlines this is just the type of support we require.
