About me

Hello. I am a friendly and super flexible graphic designer, illustrator and creative director based in South East London. I have over 20 years experience in the creative design process, working both on and offline and with a hugely diverse range of clients. Work. In the past I have worked in house at all levels from designer to design director at a number of London agencies, winning numerous awards. For the past 13 years have worked for myself in a freelance capacity, from my home, and more recently have created a little company of two with my husband, also a designer, so as to open up new creative opportunities at Mr & Mrs Peate Limited. Experience. I have taken the creative lead on a huge range of design projects in my career, most of which have had their beginnings in online communications. These diverse projects include branding and logo design, marketing campaigns, corporate communications, user interface and usability, cross platform user experience, infographics and illustration. Skills. - Creative direction - Branding & visual language - Graphic design & concept development - Web & interface design - Marketing & campaign design - Corporate communications - User experience, information architecture & wire framing - Illustration & infographic design Recent. Nyde - Creative direction, branding, ux & design Legal & General Homes - User experience, journey maps, wire framing & interface design National Grid infographics - Storyboards, illustration and design Design. I consider 'Design Thinking' as being at the centre of my work. Bringing new ideas and creative direction to every project allows me to offer my clients a strategic and focussed approach to their communication needs. I have an extensive knowledge of the design process as a whole, and am highly skilled in the areas of typography, brand communication and design for all online environments. More importantly, I am friendly, flexible and honest and am passionate about helping all of my clients deliver highly creative and business focussed communications across all of their brand channels. Not design. Outside of my design work, I love to paint and draw. I have a deep and ongoing fascination with the visual relationship between order and chaos, science and fuzzy logic and explore these ideas in my paintings using colour and shape.
