Went to see the Inbetweeners movie last night. Thankfully I went with my friend Clare who very honestly said to me that she’d like to see it with me as she knew that I’d get it and neither of us would feel like we were watching it with our teenage children (who would be mortified watching said film with their Mum) or far too proper adult friends. We giggled at the teenage uncertainties and testosterone fueled conversations and cringed at the awkward ‘boy chatting up girl’ moments, in equal measures. I can’t say it was the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen, nor was it my usual choice of film to see in a cinema (more the ‘wait til it comes out on dvd’ type actually), but it was fun, we had a laugh. Then as we were leaving the reality of going through the next few years with our 13 year old boys hit us. Surely the film touched on reality, but please someone tell me, it’s not really that bad is it? I do have vague memories of my teenage years & 20’s, all fun and many mad times but really, do kids really have conversations like that when the big bad adults aren’t around. I’m sure I did, it’s just far too long ago to remember.
After many years of wishing I could be successful in a profession that I actually enjoyed, I embarked on a new career as a Graphic Designer. By gaining a BA(hons)Graphic Design in 2009 I have realised my dream of being part of the creative industry. In my capacity as designer I listen to my clients needs, suggest practical solutions and aspire to portray their business in a professional and creative manner. I am competitive with my prices as I like to stay affordable for smaller businesses like myself. However, this doesn't mean I compromise on the quality of my work. I pride myself with being a bit of a perfectionist and would only ever give 100% to every project I take on. I'll be honest with you if I feel I'm not the right person for the job. I know what I'm good, but equally I know where my skills might not be as strong for what you need. There is no point me telling you I can help, then turn around it three months time and say, sorry, I can't do that. I have many contacts within the design industry who will have skills that I can't deliver and I'll happily recommend them to you if I feel I can't help. Please contact me for any web design, Shopify e-commerce site, digital marketing & graphics work you might need - I enjoy a challenge and will gladly take on any job, big or small
