About Jack

Hello, I’m Jack and I am a Communication Designer.

Hello, my name is Jack Talbot and I spend my time improving how we all communicate ideas to one another.

My passion for information design was first ignited whilst working as the lead software designer for a company that developed risk analysis software for oil and gas. The tool we developed generated gigabytes of numerical data that had to be organised, summarised and visualised in a way that was easily accessible to its users.

Through exploration I have developed this skill and work with people  to take a concept or idea and breaking it down into it’s core principles. Once we’ve reached the core, I can then look at presenting it in a way that is accessible to the intended audience, whilst ensuring it’s voice still represents itself and it’s creator(s).

I have a varied portfolio of work, covering digital and print design, brand design and communication, information design, and software development.  All of these topics come under communication design, whether it be the communication of a specific product or event, an entire brand image, an app that fits within an existing brand or a website to represent a company and brand online.

If you have something you’re trying to communicate to your customer or audience and you’re not sure where to begin, please get in touch and we can enjoy a chat over a cup of tea and see if I can be of help.

Quick Facts

I am an amateur magician. I performed a one man show at the fringe in 2013 and 2014 and will return in 2016.

I love movies with explosions and shiny things as much as I love a heart warming Pixar film. Big Hero 6!

I used to have an eyebrow piercing and have zero tattoos. The hilarious Channel 4 show Tattoo Fixers has, however, shown me the best and the worst of what tattooing can be.

Pancakes!

Pancake Time!

My favourite food has to be pancakes. The best pancakes I’ve found in Edinburgh can be found on the weekend breakfast menu at Frontier in Bruntsfield. Tell them Jack sent you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Communication Design is a combination of language and graphic design that helps you get your concept across to your audience. It is bespoke to both the concept and the audience to ensure the best response.

I honestly can’t answer that question without knowing more. It all depends on what you need.

I don’t charge flat rates as I find that it’s just unfair on most average businesses who need something relatively simple.

But remember, a website is more than just a file online. It’s got to be well tailored for your content. The content itself has to be tailored for your customer as well as Google. The site has to be fast, stable and easily editable by you when you want to change it.

All of that typically takes a month for a standard small to medium business website. Think about what salary you want to take home at the end of the month, factor in my business expenses and you’ll understand how much a website build by me might cost.
