I've always loved to draw and paint and doodle but it took me a little while to work out that there was a fantastic career out there where you could actually do that for a living.
I worked in a web design agency in Edinburgh and then at English Heritage (Historic England) in London managing a busy digital team. I set up our organisation on social media and introduced mobile and responsive design as it was just evolving. I enjoyed this work a great deal but always missed the hands on creative work that I used to do when I started building websites at the beginning of my career.
So, in 2016 I re-trained as a graphic designer at Shillington College in London, and whilst there I also discovered a love for surface pattern design.
I have now taken all 4 modules of the acclaimed MIID Surface Design School and now divide my time between working on graphic design projects for clients in my local area, and also making fun, original patterns for gifts, homeware, textile and stationery.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss either a graphic design project, freelance work or licensing.
I am fully proficient in Adobe Illustrator, PhotoShop, InDesign, WordPress, Wix and Squarespace. Some of the areas I can help you with include:
— Surface Design Patterns
— Rebranding & Logo Design
— Leaflets, Flyers, Posters
— Web Design
— Short term local freelance graphic design cover
