Now offering marketing services!

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you’ve enjoyed a restful and fun-filled festive season.  You may have noticed things look slightly different around here, and you’ve got my lovely wife (pictured above) to thank for that!

We were chatting over Christmas about how it’s been a while since I last used my camera and how I wanted to offer more freelance marketing services through CWDmedia.  Keeping in mind the fact that I am just one guy and my work through CWDmedia is done alongside a full-time job (I’m the Marketing Manager for Develop Training), simply adding marketing services to the range of services available through CWDmedia didn’t seem sensible.  It’s important to keep things manageable, after all!

So what I’ve done is replace Photography services with Marketing services.  Now, that isn’t to say that I couldn’t assist with photography should you require it.  But my focus in 2017 is to continue providing clients with high quality graphic & web design, excellent copywriting and to introduce a range of marketing options to those who want them.

These marketing services include, but are not limited to:

  • Consultancy services
  • Competitor benchmarking
  • Marketing strategy and/or planning
  • Market segmentation
  • Design management
  • Direct marketing
  • Inbound marketing
  • Sales promotion
  • Media planning & publishing
  • PR liaison/coordination

If you require any of these services, I’d be delighted to discuss these with you and devise a solution to fit your needs.

That’s it from me for now.  I wish you a healthy and prosperous New Year.


Merry Christmas from CWDmedia!

Yuletide update


I thought I’d bring you up to speed, what with it being a couple of months since my last update.  Things have been a little quieter in CWDmedia Towers of late, but there’s a very good reason for this – I’ve been busying myself with the final preparations for my wedding, followed by the big day itself and a breathtaking (albeit over far too quickly) honeymoon in Abu Dhabi at the quite spectacular Dusit Thani hotel.  My wife and I even managed a trip into Dubai to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world, and quite an achievement for a guy who is NOT good with heights!

Mr & Mrs Steven BraundSo with all that madness to look forward to, I eased off on chasing new work in the run-up to the main event, save for a couple of longer term projects I’ve been beavering away at before and after the wedding celebrations.  One of these is a brand new website for an extremely talented London-based copywriter colleague of mine by the name of Ed Palmer, whose site Keep. This. Copy. will soon online and generating new business.

I’ve also been helping a newly-formed building inspectorate firm with their new website’s art direction and am looking forward to seeing this come to fruition in the New Year.

But the message is this: I’m here, I’m ready to work and waiting for your enquiry – I’ve designed everything from logos to van livery, annual reports to websites and exhibition stands, and there’s no job too big or small.  As a freelancer, I don’t have the same overheads as many of my design agency counterparts, and thus can provide high quality work at prices that fit within your budget.

I’m looking forward to working with you in the New Year.  In the meantime, have a CWDelightful Christmas!


Welcome to the new look CWDmedia

As the saying goes, “New Year, New You”.  Well, in addition to mentally committing to get fitter, eat cleaner and rid myself of my bad habits, I thought I’d give the CWDmedia site something of a makeover ahead of what I hope will be a busy year on the freelancing front.

Besides the facelift, you probably won’t notice an awful lot different with CWDmedia save for the introduction of a blog, in which I intend to provide straightforward and practical advice, ideas and tips on all things graphic design, photography, copywriting and marketing.  There’s already a few posts – feel free to browse and, if you’ve something positive to add to any, leave a comment!
