hello!

Ready to hire a freelancer? I’m Amy Hughes, the person behind this website and the freelance creative and social media marketer you could soon be working with.

It’s probably (hopefully) obvious now where the name HUES came from. I’m a fan of wordplay, and express my creativity in a number of different ways; different creative hues, if you will.

As a Social Media Manager, you wear lots of hats: copywriter, data analyst, researcher, community manager, graphic designer, video editor and plenty more. So that’s exactly what I offer, my skillset in whatever way suits you and your project.

My ideal role, your ideal creative solution.

About HUES, Amy Hughes. Freelance social media manager, graphic designer, copywriter and Fine Art Artist based in South East England, UK

the facts and figures

About Me

I straddle the line between creative and analytical — studying A-Level Fine Art and Maths made me a bit of an anomaly. I’m a sucker for beautiful design but also love diving into the data and getting results.

In the last few years, I’ve faced redundancy, launched a successful business and a nationwide campaign. Now, I offer freelance services using the skills, knowledge and passions I’ve developed along the way.

Getting creative, building meaningful connections and crafting content that doesn’t just add to the noise online is what I’m all about. Sound like something you could work with? Let’s talk.
