I’m Grace Abell — an independent graphic designer. I live and work in York, but thanks to the internet, I have clients across the country.

I’m a pro-active designer, always looking for the best method for my clients to engage with their customers. Since graduating with a BA (Hons) Graphic Design in 2012, I’ve launched five brand new magazines and designed 67 issues. Packaging I created is sold as close to home as Boots and as distantly as Vegas. The CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi once reblogged my writing. I backpacked my way through eight European cities in two weeks. I’ve served as Deputy Master of York Guild of Entrepreneurs and worked on award-winning projects with fantastically talented people, probably not unlike yourself.

I work seamlessly between print and digital design, as that’s what all businesses need in 2018. I can design you a logo, your marketing materials, your website and arrange printing for you.

Now it’s your turn to introduce yourself. Fill in the form below, email grace@abelldesign.co.uk or call me on 07719796949.

Client Testimonials


“Grace was commissioned to design the first Clandestine Cake Club digital magazine ‘Sucré Kitchen’. The end result exceeded my expectations. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Grace”.
— Lynn Hill, Founder, Clandestine Cake Club.


“I was really impressed by the way Grace quickly understood my work and developed a beautifully simple and elegant branding solution to reflect it. We set a schedule and she kept to it perfectly. The logo Grace developed has helped draw the elements of my business together under one brand and adds gravitas to the website and my business cards.”

— Beate Kubitz


“Abell Design grasped what we were looking for from the first moment, they took our brief to produce a memorable animated logo aimed at Millennial, which would work on Web, Social Media and infographics and came up with a concept that surpassed all of our expectations, and all for under £1K We look forward to taking this concept to the next level in 2018. I cannot recommend Abell Design highly enough.”
— Doug Stewart, CEO Greatest Career.


“Grace delivered a smart and effective brochure from a very woolly brief on time and on budget.”
— Matthew Bloch, Friends Of The Bay Horse


“A fantastic job thank you. It’s the first of many and we would recommend you to anyone”.
— Neil Tappin, Director, NGT Products


“Working with Grace was a real pleasure. She was able to quickly grasp and realise an idea which was not yet fully formed in my own mind. The first draft was delivered quickly and to a very high standard. Communication was easy. The map went on to become an integral part of the packages offered to which it has added great value. Absolutely recommended!”
— Camille Boulais-Pretty, Founder, Tours in a Dish


“Abell Design did a great job of producing the design work for our league poster, with sensitivity as to what style would be most appropriate for our traditional games league. Quick responses and attention to detail made this process very straight forward for us.”
— Geraint Davies, York Bar Billards League
