A few years back I got an opportunity to freelance on a project and I just kept going

I am a graphic designer from Northern Ireland, and have been freelancing since 2007. My journey began in 1996 when I achieved a GNVQ in Art and Design. 

Then in 1997-1998 I studied Business, Leadership, and Ethics at Martin College (now part of the University of Tennessee). 

From 1999 to 2001 I attended Blackpool & The Fylde College (Lancaster University) earning my BA (Hons) Degree in Graphic Design. During this time I went to Nashville for an industrial placement with Higgins Advertising. Then a few years later I carried out a similar placement at Burson-Marsteller in London (now Burson Cohn & Wolfe).

After graduating in 2001 I was a designer at an advertising agency, a pre-press artworker at two printing companies, and worked at a local branding consultancy.
Having worked with other design and print companies for six years I needed a fresh creative challenge, to go freelance. I now collaborate directly with clients, building lasting relationships and guiding them toward clear and innovative solutions. My expertise spans large and small format print items, including books, magazines, logos, banners and more. 

Each project is unique, and I always provide quotes upfront, and with a network of top class printers I ensure quality and efficiency for my clients in everything I do.
My purpose is to deliver exceptional designs that not only meet but surpass my clients’ expectations. I thrive on crafting inspiring and imaginative outcomes that leave a lasting impression. I love turning ordinary ideas and concepts into extraordinary designs.
My aim has always been to provide clients with an effective and creative design service, and my portfolio mainly consists of projects from working with schools, churches, youth groups, charities, historical organisations, and individuals. I pride myself on being approachable, patient, and welcoming, where I can build strong working relationships with my clients.
