I have set up as a Freelance Designer and Illustrator under 'Charlie Wilkins Design'. This is a role that I have been working on over the past year. My clients include: Vanderhurd THRSXTY Last Hyena Harris Heras Fence Hire Z-E-E
I was an Assistant designer at Vanderhurd studio; a bespoke carpet and textile design company in Nottinghill, London. This embodied the design and the instruction of manufacture of bespoke carpets, flatweave rugs, dhurries, cushions, embroidered fabrics, printed fabrics, headboards and curtains for clients. Throughout my employment with Vanderhurd my main role was to design flooring (rugs, hurries, etc.) however I was also responsible for client meetings, managing sample production, managing order production, organising deliveries and installation of final orders, and occasionally being on site with out installers on particularly large, very important projects. I am well versed in working with Interior Designers; I have experience helping to scheme rooms, and projects, and in doing so have very good experience as a working to excruciatingly strict deadlines as a result.
I assisted the office in bespoke textile design, creating bespoke textile orders, preparation for client meetings, liaising with our manufactures overseas, fabric sample cutting and labelling.
