San Perroud

Digital Designer

San Perroud

I’m a digital designer with a special interest in the communication as a whole. With a bachelor of Communication and Advertising, a number of certificate courses and nearly 2 decades in the design industry, I believe communication is a key ingredient to any good relationship, and corporate is no different.

Since mid 90s in the design industry, I have been working mostly with production, but also with many sides of creative projects, managing teams, liaising with customers and suppliers. I'm a problem solver and team player by nature, over the years I have also got a strong sense of both project and time management.

I strive to keep pushing my skills and provide communication solutions with exceptional value, by delivering projects on brand, on brief, on budget and on time, every time.

Since about 2010, I started to work towards moving to the learning industry. I love learning, I'm a confessed geek and truly enjoy learning all I can, exploring what else can be done, how further we can push things. And once you discover more, I believe the secret lies in what you do with it.

In my world, communication is king.

And queen, and knights, royal guards etc. You name it.

Yes, you may have the latest camera, but what do your shots tell? You may know how to draw illustrations, but what do your artworks communicate? That's where I thrive, in the lines between the source, the message and the audience. All the fancy devices and numerous team members won't help much if you don't have a solid communication plan and the skills to deliver.

To paraphrase the wisdom of a clever fairy godmother, "the thingamabob that does the job is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo". Makes sense, right?

What really matters

Many fail to realise we actually work with, manage and serve PEOPLE. Not projects. Below, some words from real people I've worked with, some of whom I'm proud to call friend.

Okay, I'm aware that nice testimonials about someone' service on their own website is slightly... questionable. But you'll have to trust me on this one.
Fist bump promise. (that's the tough version of the pinky one)

Having worked alongside San for many years during my tenure at BioLab Australia, I can strongly recommend him and the very high quality of his work. He always showed exceptional creativity coupled with intelligent application and practical design. He worked well under pressure, stayed within budgetary demands and always delivered superb graphics and effective IT applications.

Strategic Business Development Executive, APAC, BioLab Australia

San has assisted our company to progress our IT and social media platforms with huge success. The work he has created for us has been of an extremely high standard.

Olivia M.

Executive Officer, HITsa Industry Training

The work he has performed for us has included technical and aesthetic modifications to our e-commerce websites; poster and brochure design; and video editing. Each time, results were delivered in a timely manner and on budget.

The quality of work and creativity were excellent and exceeded our expectations; and there was a real concern from Perroud that everything they produced met the standards we require to accurately present our brand and products. I recommend to anyone seeking to propel their brand identity above the crowd, and would happily provide a personal reference to that end.

Dr Tim N.

Managing Director, Brazcom Imports

Originally, we had contacted San Perroud to develop our brand identity, business card and a newsletter template only. However, his knowledge and sense of commitment made us decide to go further and create a website to support our marketing goals.

His ideas have brought us not only good feedback from our existing customers but also new business opportunities.

From the first meeting, briefing, through concept and launching, he proved he was well prepared to understand our necessities and deliver results. We will gladly recommend San Perroud's services to other businesses.

Chef, Epicure

Alessandro is a highly creative individual who is able to work to tight timeframes and convert ideas into workable solutions.

He is extremely approachable and knowledgeable about every aspect of design. It is evident that he keeps abreast of trends, fashions and latest design technology.

A key talent is that he really listens to what you want and is totally unflappable.

Perroud has a unique ability to produce what I need and want but thought was impossible. Always thinks out of the box to produce work that effectively communicates the message, captures the personality of the brand and attracts attention. Highly recommended.

Alessandro is a brilliant, creative and highly competent graphic and multi media expert that I would recommend to anyone looking for creative solutions that are executed really well.
