Ethics Statement

I care deeply about delivering the very best work for my clients. However some things are more important to me than either work or money so I've included the following ethics guidelines to explain who I choose to work with and the values my business stands for.

WHO I WORK WITH

  • Charities & Non-Profits

I love supporting charitable organizations, non-profit groups, and other such entities and I am proud to offer reduced rates for them. I also hold a number of pro-bono-days in reserve every month for content, design, and general consultant work. If you are a representative of a charity / non-profit and you’re interested in hearing more about my pro-bono or reduced rate availability, please contact me here.

  • Workers’ Organizations

I actively accept projects / commissions from trade unions and/or other workers’ rights & representation groups with reduced rates.

WHO I DO NOT WORK WITH

Please note that I reserve the right to refuse projects, commissions, or other work from groups, organizations, and individuals who espouse racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or other discriminatory ideologies.
