April’s Client of the Month is Brandman Limited. We spoke with founder Marcin Rzymek about his move from freelance graphic designer to business owner and branding specialist.
What’s your name and your role in the company?
My name is Marcin. I am the founder and director of Brandman Limited. I’m a self-taught graphic designer and branding specialist with 8 years of experience.
Tell us about your business
We are a branding agency specializing in building a brand image for startup companies, small & medium businesses, and those who would like to show their values creatively. We build the brand image by finding the main vision that first drove the owners to start their business. By research and a client interviewing process, we do our best to specify the target audience and the best visualization that will attract more customers.
What drove you to start the business?
I had been struggling with a lack of courage to open my own business. I worked as a freelancer for many years (kind of “side hustle”). Last year I decided that this is my moment and I have enough experience and enough skills to help other businesses build their visual identity. Nowadays we see a lack of professional companies providing not only dump/simple icon images, and the strategic approach to building an image which will speak to the proper target audience. I also have an idea to teach entrepreneurs the right approach to the subject of building strong brand images, as I think that is the base and the best long term help for their company.
Why did you choose The Accountancy Partnership?
I had been searching for a professional accounting company that could help me understand how to run a company, especially as I don’t live in the UK. I read a lot about your activities, liked the website and the approach given when I asked a lot of questions.
Would you recommend The Accountancy Partnership?
Of course! I have already recommended The Accountancy Partnership to two of my colleagues hoping to open and run a business in the UK. I hope they will contact you soon regarding that matter.
What do you have planned for your business in the future?
I would like to hire in a few graphic designers and marketers, and expand as a media agency in the UK. Maybe if everything goes as planned I can also open a branch in Poland and the US as I have a lot of friends over there.
I would also like to expand my line of products on Amazon. So far we are starting with Memory Foam Pillows sales but I am thinking about adding some more accessories for bedrooms and offices.
If you have any other information you’d like to include please write it below – we’ll do our best to include it!
My focus is on the second department of the company. I fully focus on building the media and branding agency. The Amazon merchant account is kind of a faster growing way to have income that would help me grow my agency.
