“I help record labels and other creative people realise their music, book and website projects.”

I’m Paul Jackson, a British graphic designer and web designer in Essen, Germany.

“I help record labels and other creative people realise their music, book and website projects.”

Web design | “I help creative digital immigrants create an accomplished online presence.”

Web design: example of work (darkened)

You’re a musician, author or other creative person, and would like a more professional web presence, in order to increase your reach, people’s awareness of you, and as a result, hopefully also your sales?

The topic of web design – and everything related to it – perhaps seems a daunting prospect, especially for people who didn’t grow up with the internet.

I created my first customer website in the last century, or 1999 to be precise.

Designing websites, and all the related stuff, such as researching keywords, analysing data, planning and realising projects – and also a logistical challenge or two – provides me with a great deal of enjoyment.

So if you’ve got a bit more life experience behind you and need help getting your website project up and runnning, I’m happy to help.

Book design/ebook design | “I help authors fulfil their dream of publishing their own book.”

Book design/ebook design: typesetting example

You’re ready to self-publish your (perhaps first-ever) book, but don’t have the skills to design an appealing cover, create an ebook or prepare print-ready files?

The days when you could publish a book with a homemade cover are over. Hooray!

Not only do I create for you a self-published book that doesn’t look like a self-published book, but I also assist you throughout the process of realising your special project.

Album cover design | “I help helped bands and musicians fulfil their dream of releasing their own album.”

That for which – at least in certain circles – I was perhaps a teensy-weensy bit known.

However, thanks to digitalisation, the demand for this is today as great as the demand for naked pictures of me. And the budgets for it are almost as small as my agreement with, and acceptance, of the monumentally stupid, pointless and damaging idea that was Brexit.

Nevertheless, I’ve created a small page for it on my website, in case labels read it and, despite everything, still fancy my assistance with realising their music packaging projects.

After a professional detour over the last eight years, during which I predominantly lived from German to English translations in the subject areas of technology/industry and marketing, I’m now going back to the roots and presenting myself as a graphic designer and web designer once again.
