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 design agency, Design33 as the sole graphic designer on the team. I primarily design websites and apps, however I also take on the branding for some of our clients as well. Our clients range in size, though predominantly Scotland based, and vary in complexity - from eCommerce websites, blogs, to portals.
As a Junior Designer, I initially provided support for the team, doing research, making amends and artworking designs. I quickly took on more responsibilities, working on creative concepts for new pitches, rolling out campaigns and liaising with clients and suppliers. I worked on projects within several areas of design too, including branding, packaging, digital marketing, web design, large document layout and printed materials.
IRONMAN® run over 40 triathlons throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa every summer, working in the Frankfurt office, I was solely responsible for 15 of these events. Each event required a branding package, event poster, race booklet, and any other printed or digital promotional material. This gave me great insight into the world of corporate design and the extent of large scale branding. I handled multiple projects and deadlines at the same time and worked with IRONMAN marketing and logistical teams across Europe to ensure that these deadlines were met, approved and printed by race day.
I moved to Australia for a year and did a bit of traveling, whilst in Melbourne I worked for Executive Media, a publishing house, as a typesetter. I worked on some 20 publications, largely travel magazines and it was a great experience, giving me insight into the world of large document layout design and typesetting.
I began working as a full-time Junior Designer after completing a short internship. It being a small firm, I learnt on the job and was entrusted with a lot of responsibilities straight away. Such as, handling clients solo as well as part of a team, attending client meetings/pitches and delivering quotes regarding new projects. I sent projects to production to both our in-house printer for small runs, and an outsourced printer for larger scale productions.
