My ethos is to work with you to produce highly individualised design solutions, tailored specifically to your needs. Whether you are a new business looking for a logo, brochure and printed stationary, or an existing company looking to revamp your online identity, my recipe of discussion, research and baking hot passion for design can get you to where you want to be. Oh, and a pinch of good honest hard work.
The sweetest thing about me is that you won\'t be passed around. No account handlers and middlemen mean you get to work directly with the designer, and for a slice of the price.
All shapes and sizes catered for to satisfy all your design and communication needs.
Over the last 7 years, I\'ve built up close relationships with copywriters, web developers and 3D designers, so all creative work can be undertaken straight away. I am also happy to outsource printing with links to the most cost effective and local printers whom i know i can rely on - so you won\'t even have to move from the couch.

Work Experience Summary: I work for an agency as part of the graphic design team, alongside the web, video and live events departments. I value the importance of building and developing strong relationships with clients, which is of great benefit to any company and clients. I have been proven to work under pressure whilst keeping creativity. Whilst at Citizen I have been involved in filming interviews as part of a video shoot for the Argos Retail Group and have worked as a personal assistant on a video shoot for The Princeâï¿½ï¿½s Trust. I have designed incentive materials for print for Philips and helped in the design stages for a website for T-Mobile. I also design two monthly magazines for T-Mobile staff to inform them of the monthâï¿½ï¿½s targets and news. More recently, I have managed a small team of graphic designers, web designers and copywriters to create several launch packs for T-Mobile propositions and products which involved taking briefs, presenting concepts in client meetings, raising estimates, liaising with third party suppliers, managing timescales and work completed by other designers and delivering a successful engaging product in a very short space of time. I also co-managed the T-Mobile Retail Get Together event for the year, involving site visits, theme concepts, all stand artwork and collateral and being involved in the event build at two locations.
I have recently set up a freelance business due to demand for my services which has enabled me to work on various identities and logos for new businesses. I have designed and built a full website for a Healthcare training company and was also commissioned to provide concepts for a marketing campaign. I recently designed a wedding stationery package, which has widened my experience and opened up a new area of the design market. Working for such a variety of clients is improving my creativity constantly and I continue to gain confidence whilst promoting my new business.
