I have been working as a freelance graphic designer for almost 10 years specialising in branding, logo design and website design. Alongside this I have supported several local businesses by providing freelance in-house support on an ad-hock basis and have worked remotely for creative & marketing agencies and businesses further afield.
Coming to Graphic Design a little later in life, having trained in horticulture and conservation after leaving school, I achieved a triple distinction National Diploma in Graphic Design, followed by a BA Honours in Graphic Design from Nottingham Trent Uni.
With 2 young children in tow, I began to work freelance after graduating and soon built up a great client base, some who I still work with today.
Locally I have designed the branding for The Tap & Tonic, Juniper Tap and Grantham Gin, I have worked with Living Health, Gerard Hair, WFC Chandlers plus many more.
For 6 years I was responsible for all of Rocket Print & Promotion’s design work. This involved all in-house work, from web design and maintenance to marketing materials as well as design work for their clients.
My work here involved designing exhibition stands, creating 3D colour rendered images, drawing up the necessary technical plans and build plans to give to the joinery department, creating the artwork for print or checking artwork that has been sent by clients for any issues that may occur.
Through Rocket I have designed for a huge number of clients; Omron Healthcare, PDSA, Belvoir Fruit Farms, Melia Hotels, Metro Drinks, Bizerba, Multivac, Attends and Creative Products are just a few.
In October 2018 I left the exhibition world to rebalance my work and home life. I set up design company Primrose and Bee and am thoroughly enjoying both the work and the people I meet along the way.
