I offer smart marketing solutions and design support for your business.
Hi, I’m Claire. I’m a designer with over 18 years experience in marketing and visual communications. I’m passionate about creating great designs and high-quality artwork across a wide range of deliverables.
For the past 13 years I’ve worked as a Senior Designer for a marketing agency, delivering print and digital content for a wide variety of clients. Working in many business sectors from Food and Beverage to Construction and Property Development, I’m comfortable with a diverse range of styles. Whether defining a new look and logo, or working within existing brand guidelines, I’m able to adapt to many different approaches. From concept to completion I can help guide you through the creative process and achieve the results you want.
3I am fluent in Adobe CS with a complete repertoire of skills in creating everything for print-ready artwork and digital designs. Experience has taught me good workflow, time management and that all important attention to detail.
Outside of design, I’m kept busy with my two young children. We love nature, day trips, sunny days and picnics. I love to bake and like to kid myself that I’m edging closer to the perfect sourdough… watch this space!
