About me
Hello you. Thank you so much for taking the time to read more about me. If you like what you hear and see, feel free to connect! Who am I? Well, the interesting thing about me (if you look at it with very squinty eyes) is that in 2017 I came very close to death, along with my newborn daughter. Yep. Life got quite hairy in a split second and my outlook on life changed a lot. Don’t worry, we are both fine now! And the amazing thing to come out of it was that I became determined to pursue the career I actually want, rather than continue feeling stuck in a sector that had been ‘fine’ but was not my passion. I needed to get back to my ‘true calling’ after getting a bit lost for so many years and not having a creative outlet. For anyone who is naturally creative, you can understand how frustrating, stifling - hey if we’re putting it all there- just how depressing that is. So, after a bit of at-home parenting, I decided to take the plunge and move from education to graphic design. Now, anyone who has known me since childhood tells me “Well of course! That makes total sense! You were born to do that.” And my sudden ‘turned up to eleven’ happiness factor since starting my design journey points to them being right! I am passionate about art and design. I am obsessed with learning more and getting better! I have so many transferable skills just leaking out of me; having been a teacher and educational writer, communication, empathy and creative problem-solving are my strengths, not to mention working to strict deadlines! I am the most hard working, self-critical person you will ever meet, I thrive on solving a nice juicy problem, and, well, I am just plain nice. Hey, I know that’s not fashionable to say, but if that’s wrong I don’t wanna be right! I am nice. I am polite. I am reliable. And I want to work with others who are these things. The end. No, it’s not really the end… I love all aspects of graphic design but have particular interests in creative advertising (design and copywriting), entertainment advertising design, branding and identity. Ok, now it’s the end. Please do connect…if you are nice. 😉

  • Book Cover Redesign
    Book Cover RedesignStudent project. The brief was to redesign a book dust jacket (any genre) which must include a drop cap design - this had to be the initial letter of the writer's surname or a key word in the title. For me, and in both cases, this was the letter G! Can you spot it? It also needed to illustrate elements of the story. I designed the G as a bit of an optical illusion - formed from two shapes within the image: the parasol and the hanging decorative lantern in front of it. Together forming the let
