Imagination fuels creativity

About Me

I’m Sam, aka BEYOND THE SLATE, and I undertake high quality graphic design and photography projects from inception to completion – whether your business is a new startup or is well established within your industry. Naturally I take a creative approach to all of our projects and can design solutions which typically exceed your expectations.

I work closely with you to develop your brand, freshen your appeal and help to breathe life into your company.


I offer a range of design services. So whether you need a new logo, modern business cards, a corporate brochure that is not run of the mill or fresh photography, I can help you make it happen.

My skills and experience enable me to provide an encompassing service to ensure consistency across your media. I’ll even help you with any copywriting to make sure your marketing collateral speaks to your customers.

I provide a professional and personal service, making sure the details are just right so that you get the design you’ve been after; the one that represents you perfectly.





Valuable Resource

We hired Sam to give our full corporate and product-specific branding an overhaul, and he certainly did. Excelling at translating his creativity into providing solutions that fit his clients’ needs and environment, he is customer focused and brings refreshing insights. He is a pleasure to work with and his open, no-nonsense communication style makes him a valuable resource for our business. We will definitely be using Sam for future projects and I can wholeheartedly recommend him.

Creative & Adaptable

Ecovis has worked with Sam on a couple of occasions now and he has always been a pleasure to deal with. For our company photos we chose quite a difficult setting, a busy coffee shop, but Sam adapted very quickly, thinking of interesting angles and backgrounds – after a few test shots the photos were looking great.

Defiantly Recommended

Sam is a pleasure to work with, reliable and creative. He was able to understand the concept and convey that through my final design. I was able to give feedback on several versions and am really pleased with the high quality outcome! I’ve had great comments on the new look and I feel this design will help us grow our brand recognition in the coming years. I would defiantly recommend Sam for a creative and professional service!
