About me
My name is Deanna Watkins. I am a freelance graphic designer based in South London. Over the past 12 years I have created bespoke designs for online, print and digital media. My recent projects include infographics, magazines, brochures, flyers and tailored event collateral, together with branding systems, logo design and social media design. I am also Adobe certified in After Effects. I have worked with local businesses and multinational corporations, I take great pride in working with people and teams to swap ideas and create stimulating visual media which achieves specific aims. I believe a collaborative way of working is the best way to reach successful results. No task is too specific or project too complex as I enjoy working with clients to deliver imaginative campaigns against strict timescales and limited budgets. When I'm not designing, I like to spend my spare time escaping to the countryside for long walks and creating unique quilling posters.

Having a product that stands out from the rest has never been more vital. The brand colours associated with gaming products all have a bold bright colour. eg. XBox green. ADX orange gives the brand a strong place in the market.
  • Branding - Bellevue Bicycle Workshop
    Branding - Bellevue Bicycle WorkshopThe Bellevue Bicycle Workshop needed signage designed for his workshop to give his store more standout. The signage is also used to attach to his bicycle when doing mobile services. They were also interesting in using his identity for branded badges and t-shirts. This was also an opportunity to refresh the look on his social media platforms. The website application will run in the same vein as this banner and forthcoming sign to provide the continuity and how to apply it to social media icons.
