I am a new start up business and I am looking to have produced some marketing materials and a website. It would be great if I could find someone to do them all.

However, the flyers that I am requiring have relatively quite a bit of text. It therefore requires someone specialised in typography and who can layout text well, who has sensitivity in selecting the right font, line spacing, etc. I have employed a graphic designer who I thought would be able to do this but unfortunately I am learning that they can't. We are in the middle of the project now but I am desperate to pull out: I have spent too much money and have been extremely disappointed in the work done so far.

Firstly, can anyone advise the speciality that I should be looking for? Maybe it's not a graphic designer. Secondly does anyone know of anyone who they think may be able to do this job well? I urgently am looking for someone very experienced with an artistic eye and who can start work straight away.

Thank you very much!

Thank you James, Sue and Liam.

I have only now come across your replies. Since placing my post, I've found a graphic design agency/design agency. The work is in progress, so, we shall see...

However, I am now storing all of the above leads. I am particularly interested in Mike's work as you say (Sue) that he does exactly what I am talking about.

Once again, thank you all...
