A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve,
not by the desire to beat others. Ayn Rand
Portobella Rain is a micro-studio based in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne delivering creative digital & print based solutions to businesses across the globe.
The studio began in 2009 born from a passion for creating colourful, vibrant artwork. Five years later & the studio has achieved so much; awards, world ranks, successful design courses & a growing cult following through Social Media.
(aside) I set this up five years ago whilst teaching Design & Technology in schools. Thanks to a Maths Teacher, I had the chance to design his Conservatory. On completion, I just knew I was doing the wrong job & packed in lesson plans for Project Scopes.
I don't regret it even though a slow addiction to Relentless & Monster has crept up on me thanks to the need for late nights on the Mac - ah well."Ben Segni, 2013, Creative Designer"
These are just a few of the most recent projects I've completed this year- they range from Websites to Branding projects.
Also, when things are quiet, I just like doing random personal projects for the urge to get likes, reblogs & shares!
If you like the work on show, don't be shy, drop me a line. I'll have a chat over the phone, SkyPe or we can set up a meeting & discuss your project a little more face-to-face.

I make sure that my clients are happy with the service they receive. I care about my reputation as a designer & this is reflected in the manner in which I work.
I work to deadline, to budget & keep in touch. I show you that I understand fully, before I've even had creative ideas, your business, your marketplace & how you're going to stand out in it through working with me.
Working with my clients, I try to break down the process into a language that you understand. I'm a friendly bloke & like a good chat & giggle, so don't be surprised if I crack a few dry jokes when we work together. I think work should be fun too.
A creative Graphic & Web Design services is on offer. Graphic Design projects for web & print is available. A wide range of web solutions are also on offer ranging from multi-platform web sites (like this one), web site CMS to HTML Marketing.
Unlike other designers, I can take flat visual designs & code them into working websites. On offer are HTML/CSS sites which respond to mobile devices & Desktops, Website CMS which you log into & maintain which are customised to suit your brand.

you to be among the best and easiest we have dealt with.

But more importantly is getting a reputation that will continue to grow & ensure this little studio, is the only place to come to for creative design of any kind.
Social Media Marketing
Design For Print
I've studied Art, Architecture, Web Design & Development and written courses for Graphic & Web Design for private training companies in the North East. I started designing for myself in 2008, after I was asked to draw up a Conservatory for a colleague at work. I loved doing it so much, I packed in teaching & never looked back.
I fell into Web Design after needing a website to showcase my design work online. I got hooked & now develop sites in HTML, HTML5 & PHP using MySQL Databases.
I believe it's all well & good having a website, but it's no good if you haven't got visitors going to it. Over the past 3 years, I've looked at specialising in several areas, but Social Media Marketing & SEO is one that I've had great success with.
I market to more people through Social Media than any other Design Agency in the North of England & have been known to write copy, that sees my content hit Page 1 of Google in 3 Days.
Aside from hammering the keys of my laptop, I love Film, Comics & Liverpool Football Club.
I've been a supporter since I was 6 Years Old & at the ripe age of 31, still pull the shirt on for match days. My favourite player of all time is Robbie Fowler. I saw him score a hatrick in 3 minutes once.
He had his feet firmly on the ground & listened to our concerns and our brief.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Christopher Clare, Managing Director, Urban Marmalade
So far, I've created projects in several different mediums & industries - do you want to send in a query & test my creativity a little more?
Get in touch & lets set up a meeting? This doesn't have to be face to face; as we can SkyPe & talk for as long as you want digitally. I'll take some notes & then draft up a Project Scope with a quote. If you like the sound of it, we'll get started.
