About me

Hi, my name is Hayley and I am a Graphic Designer. My main interests include branding, packaging, illustration and hand-lettering. As a designer, I am passionate about design and enjoy working through the design process iteratively to perfect the final outcome. In my own time I have designed T-shirts, postcards and prints and sold them at markets. These practises help inspire my passion to design and give me confidence to experiment in new ways.
