About me
It’s lovely to meet you, I’m Freya, a graphic designer originally from Glasgow but have lived all around the world including Kyrgyzstan, Cyprus, Shropshire and now Cornwall for the past four years. I studied at Falmouth University and graduated with a First Class in BA (Hons) Graphic Design but loved the coast so much that I extended my time in the South working as a freelance designer. This exposure to so much culture and the wonders of the world has simply fed my appetite for travel, investing my time in people and has also led me to learn the French and Russian language. I have been able to combine this passion with my love for design, whether it be photography, editorial or branding. Taking a lot of my inspiration from my surroundings, I have a desire to identify and solve real life problems through creative and well-crafted solutions.
