Hello, I’m Lorraine Currie - I'm a graphic designer. I love working with typography and like to push myself to learn new skills. I have worked within the design industry in the U.K., Australia and Germany exploring various forms of graphic design. I have recently completed an upskill, intensive graphic design course at Shillington School of Graphic Design, New York.Locked Pro Plan feature
I currently work for web agency, Design33 as the sole graphic/web designer on the team. I design websites varying in complexity - from eCommerce websites, blogs, to intranets and I also take on the branding and print collateral for some of our clients. One of the most exciting projects for me has been rebranding Design33. Developing a new logo, website and stationery to re-align their image with their current status, experience and values.
Initially, I provided support for the creative team - doing research, making amends and getting designs ready for production. I quickly took on more responsibilities, including working on creative concepts for new pitches and rolling out campaigns to digital and printed products. Hampton are first and foremost a branding agency, and as such I had the opportunity to work with projects on a deeper level than I had done before, creating across several areas of design - packaging, digital marketing, web design, large document layout and printed materials
IRONMAN® run over 40 triathlons throughout Europe every summer, working from their HQ in Frankfurt. I was solely responsible for the artworking and production of 15 of these events. Each event required an extensive branding package, event poster, race booklet, and any other printed promotional material. As and when required, I also produced digital collateral for races such as website skins and digital adverts. I handled multiple projects and deadlines at the same time and worked closely with IRONMAN® marketing and logistical teams all across Europe to ensure that these deadlines were met, approved and ready for race day.
In 2015 I moved to Australia and did a bit of traveling. In Melbourne I worked for Executive Media, a publishing house, as a typesetter. I worked on some 20 publications, largely travel magazines, laying out adverts and short articles. It was a valuable experience, giving me insight into the world of large document layout design and typesetting.
Paradox is a small but busy agency, and as such, I learned on the job and was entrusted with a lot of responsibilities straight away. Such as, handling clients from initial meeting all the way through the design phase, to organising production and delivery. I regularly sent projects to production to our in-house printer for small runs, and liaised closely with a number of outsourced printers for larger scale productions.
