About me
Hello! I'm a freelance designer/illustrator currently looking work. I have tons of experience especially in print. I am currently freelancing at Harper Collins in their children's department and Rhubarb Food Design as their marketing designer. Some of my recent projects at Harper are a Narnia colouring book where I've used existing artwork to make patterns and designed and laid out the entire book within a tight time frame. I've also designed the new Cecelia Ahern children's cover. At Rhubarb I've been working on a series of high profile event, involved in pitch work, styling and marketing. Previous to that I was freelancing in the adult fiction and non-ficiton departments. I have worked as a full time designer in the Simon and Schuster and Hodder and Stoughton, adult art departments and at Hallmark as a greeting card designer. I'm friendly, easy going, can make a good cup of tea and always arrive with biscuits. Please get in touch if you have anything you think I might be interested in, Thanks! Anneka
