A Little About Me

Charles Lin - Graphics & Web Designer

My name is Charles. I’m a graphic and web designer available for freelance work, based in Melbourne, Australia.

Throughout my design career, I’ve had experience in creating/managing brands, illustrations, design for print, website development, photo and video editing, animations and marketing.

I’ve led multiple projects and campaigns, from start to finish; interpreting a creative brief, to conceptualising and executing design ideas, to finalising artwork for print or developing it digitally. I’ve also worked with big clients like: Cadbury, VicRoads, RYOBI, AEG Powertools, Gray Nicholls, and Linen House etc.

As a driven and motivated designer, I’m constantly seeking new projects to add to my rapidly growing client base.

So if you have any crazy or far-fetched ideas that needs to be brought to life, or if you know where you’d like to take your brand but need help getting there, or even battling tight deadlines. I’m confident that I possess all the necessary design and marketing skills, knowledge and experience required to lead your project across the line, with a personalised and professional service.

Feel free to contact me to discuss a project you have in mind, I’d love to hear from you!

What they say about me

Paul Nicol

“We engaged Charles to rebrand our financial business. Immediately from the design brief and logo design, Charles displayed a high level of understanding of what we were wanting to achieve whilst working carefully to agreed deadlines. Most importantly, Charles produced a brand which is highly recognisable, clean and attractive.

After completing the rebrand, we engaged Charles to rebuild our website. He applied the strong brand fundamentals and design elements of our rebrand into a highly functional and well-designed website.

Our client feedback post the rebrand and new website has been incredibly positive. We are exceptionally grateful to Charles for the high level of dedication and skill he exhibited during the project.”

“I have known Charles personally and professionally for many years.

Charles has been responsible for building websites, logo design and brochures for my company. Recently we expanded our business to cater a wider product range and knew that our website needed a reconfiguration. we engaged Charles to design a new website that could display all our products but be an easy and functional site to use. The website has exceeded our expectations through Charles’ research and understanding of our business to set everything out just the way we imagined it.

Kustom Bind looks forward to working with Charles in future projects.”
