Well hello. I'm Amy - a feisty and good-humoured Bristol-based graphic designer with a BA Honours degree in design, committed to achieving the best possible result for all my clients.
I've climbed a pretty high mountain, swum in croc-infested waters, run a couple of marathons, competed in a triathlons, I do dance on a Tuesday and am mum to an amazing little girl who I swear one day will rule the world! Just a few snippets from my life which, together with many years experience working in creative agencies have all served to motivate, inspire and drive me to where I am today, running my own successful design business! I am an efficient worker with excellent communication skills and attention to detail, but more importantly apply my own brand of magic creativity and originality to every brief.
Creating beautiful brand visual identities is my passion - branding which will help cement a solid and trusting relationship with you and your ideal customer, keeping them coming back for more and spreading the word about you to help your business grow.
A successful brand identity is so much more than just a logo! I will analyse your brand strategy, mission, voice and vision and help you translate this visually to ensure that every customer touchpoint you have has meaning and impact, and is consistently on-brand. It's the little details such as custom-designed icons, illustrations, brand patterns and extra graphical elements which all compliment and work with the logo and communicate for you whilst you get on with running your business!
In addition to having an endless supply of creative ideas, I was an Account Director for an agency for 7 years where my client was Moët Hennessy - so this means in addition to graphic design skills I think strategically, am proactive rather than just reactive, have excellent communication skills, endless patience, excellent time-management and I never over-promise and under deliver. I am also a nice person and that can oft be under-estimated as a good skill to have : )
When it comes to creating your visual brand, my designer-ego doesn't get in the way. I know the right questions to ask to draw out the creative brief - and I will listen carefully to what it is you want. I will generally always aim to give you something you may think you don't want alongside this, often to great effect! I am great at taking constructive criticism and well-thought through feedback and then just cracking on with the next stage of development work.
So - what are you waiting for? Hand over the brief, let me at it!
Brands I have worked with on a creative basis during my career include the following :-
Moët & Chandon
Cloudy Bay wine
IMG (International Management Group)
Women's Tennis Association
