Hello. I'm Julie.
Senior designer and creative artworker. Craft course junky. Wannabe illustrator. @OneMinuteBriefs winner, finalist and participant. Banter lord.
After many (many) years, of much deliberating and a lot of sleepless nights, I decided to bite the bullet and leave my position as Design Director of an award-winning full-service marketing agency and go freelance. Yes I miss my colleagues, the banter and laughs, the cakes and the regular monthly salary. And yes, I talk to myself and the cat a lot more now, but I've met loads of lovely new people, had some great projects to work on, and get to have my lunch at 11am :)
I love to design for print, with brand identity being my favourite discipline. However, I can offer creative solutions both online and offline. Scroll down to see my skills and experience.
'I need a creative artworker' I hear you cry... you're in luck. As well as being a highly experienced senior designer, I’m also a dab hand at taking sketches, scribbles and concepts, and transforming them into artwork quickly and accurately.
Brochures and newsletters, brand identity, brand guidelines, photo retouching, direct mail, advertising, animated GIFs, point of sale, exhibitions, vehicle livery, signage.
InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premier Pro, PowerPoint, Word.
Proctor + Stevenson, Mr B & Friends, We Are Halo, The Way Design, Stitch Communications and Plus One.
Brands I've worked on:
Panasonic, National Grid, Bristol Water, Virunga National Park, Capital Law, Weir, Smurfit Kappa, TrueSpeed, Westonbirt Arboretum, AWMS, Imperial Bricks, Swisspacer,, Deceuninck, and VBH to name a few.
