Hello, thanks for taking time to view my PPH page.
I've been working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator for five years. From a background of agency work with big brands (please see my folio below), I have recently moved toward helping smaller businesses with limited or low budgets.
Marketing is often forgotten in the build up to launching a business, but I am here to help you through that particular minefield. I'd like you feel comfortable in discussing your ideas without being bamboozled by account managers and sales teams.
Please, get in touch and let me hear your thoughts.
