I LOVE what I do!

I’ve been in the design industry for over 35 years. I studied Graphic Design for 4 years and although my dream was to be a cartoonist I ended up  specialising in graphics and packaging design. My first job was for a print/packaging company learning about design and print in the real world. I went on to join a London W1 Design agency, working on pharmaceutical and cosmetics such as No7 and Yardley. While working for an European Packaging company, I supported the sales team with promotional literature and packaging prototypes for Carlsberg and Coca Cola.

I began freelancing when I had my two children and started building my own business. I have since established a long list of loyal clients who trust my advice and expertise.
From working closely with my clients I understand the problems small businesses have with creating cost effective design assets and I want to help you and your business look and feel more professional.

I use my expertise to help you CREATE IMPACT and deliver MORE WOW!
