Daniel Longhurst, passionate sportsman who loves to run in the rain
Who is Daniel Longhurst?

As a passionate sportsman who loves to run in the rain, I draw motivation from learning new skills and feeling a sense of achievement.

For the past five years I have been learning to speak Spanish with Kent Adult Education in a classroom with other students. I've completed 7 courses and am currently studying an intermediate level course.

To broaden my design skills I am studying online for a Professional Diploma in UX with UX Design Institute and Glasgow Caledonian University. I hope to achieve this certification later this year.

Since 2013 I have been working as a Freelance Graphic Designer for various companies throughout the UK in many industries; Manufacturing, Water Hygiene, Education, Corporates and Startups.

I am a highly self-motivated and enthusiastic professional developing projects from concept through to completion.

Why use Daniel Longhurst Design & Marketing?

With many years of agency and in-house design experience I have been fortunate enough to see all forms of client expectations.

My customer focused and results driven mindset has allowed me to contribute to the growth and success of many companies and clients through digital, print and marketing channels with great ideas and my unique personal approach.

If you require specialist web developing, photography or copywriting services, I have access to a team of other professionals that I work alongside regularly to help fulfil your brief.
