I'm Scott, a freelance graphic designer. I love design as much as I love plants!*
Great design can help your business grow. Let’s chat about how we can work together to turn your ideas into great design that works.

Who is MonkeyFern?

I’m Scott Cain, a full-time freelance graphic designer with over 17 years experience. I'm based in Perth, Western Australia with clients from all over Australia and the world.

* Plants! I have a balcony full of house plants and succulents!

An experienced designer

I have excellent design and communication experience in a wide range of areas. I worked in various design studios and the West Australian Newspaper for over ten years before branching out on my own.

I’ve been successfully working for myself as a freelancer for over seven years now.

Why ‘monkey fern’?

A ‘monkey fern’ is the unfurling new frond on a tree fern. Given the right amount of light, water and nutrients, the frond will open up, reach for the light and grow.

I love working with clients, helping turn a vision into reality, being part of the team right from the early stages as their business grows and develops.

Finding your brand’s personality!

Every brand has a personality and by listening to you, asking the right questions to identify your brand essence and imagine it in a current design landscape, I am able to give your brand the right personality for your market.

Design for everyone

I freelance for people creating new businesses, marketing professionals wanting to outsource, design agencies with too much work and much more.

The benefit of going with a freelance designer is that my costs are much less. All design is done by me in my home office and when you call, you’ll talk directly with the person who created the work for you.

My Work

I'm an expert at all types of design, from brand identities and logos, digital design like websites and online advertising, print in all its forms, signage, editorial and magazine design. Here are just a few recent sample to give you a taste.
