Designed By Faust, a freelance designer working in Manchester, UK.


My name is Pete Awad, and Designed By Faust is my freelance design business, based in the heart of Manchester, UK. With a design profile of over 20 years’ experience, I create handcrafted logos and branding, printed media, corporate brochures and magazines, responsive websites, e-newsletter and web-based motion graphics, packaging design and exhibition media.

I deliver high quality work at freelance rates, which means the best of both worlds for my clients, whose businesses range from start-ups to large-scale international groups.

I’ve worked in many design sectors over the years, but most of all I enjoy working with people and businesses who appreciate good design as an integral part of their visual brand.

I often work with many other talented people such as copywriters, editors, marketing / PR professionals and sales executives, which allows me to reach creative solutions and deliver projects on schedule and budget.

Whatever your needs or budget, Designed By Faust is always ready to take a look. Creating top-notch visual designs to help your business stand out is my business… why not take a look for yourself.
