Hi, I’m Leah, Graphic/Digital Designer!
I work with real, relatable brands to create imaginative designs with purpose.
Having worked in various web development, multimedia and graphic design roles throughout the private and public sectors over the past 15 years, has given me well rounded skills in all aspects of design. From marketing products and services to designing interactive learning materials, my skills are diverse and adaptable. I specialise in User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) design, and enjoy following the technological advancements in this area. I find Human Interaction Design (HID) fascinating, and enjoy using my heightened skills and knowledge in this area to help businesses realise their full potential.
When I’m not in front of my Mac, I’ll be enjoying the great outdoors.
Are we a good fit?
I believe freelancer/client collaborations work best when we’re a good fit for each other. I enjoy helping others convey their brand story and authentic voice through visual imagery.
In the past, I’ve worked with product manufacturers and wholesalers, educational institutions, small businesses, most with ongoing work requests. This allows us to create a rapport with each other and build on our relationship over time.
Here’s what my clients have in common:
- Appreciation and respect for great design and visual storytelling
There’s plenty of bargain basement freelancers out there who’ll offer you a quick design for a few bucks. I’m certainly not one of them. I pride myself on well thought out ideas, and coming up with innovative designs based around human centred design and user experience research.
- Willingness to communicate clear expectations
I want to exceed your expectations, so it’s important I have all the details upfront, including your expectations, content for websites, exact sizes for signage, ads and digital communications, clear deadlines, whether you have a style guide to work within? Need me to source photos or take photos? Clear and open communication is super important so I can deliver exactly what you need.
- Ongoing need for designs
Many of my clients have a need for regular design work, whether that be marketing communication, course material updates, recipe book or catalogue revisions. My favourite clients love that we’ve built long-term relationships, and we just get each other. Designs happen easily, through mutual trust and respect. Having said that, I’m also open to one-off designs, and these will sometimes grow into long-term relationships.
If you think we’d make a good team, I’d love to hear from you.
