Rio de Janeriro – what a fabulous place, beautiful and little bit scary. 12th floor apartment, doesn’t do my fear of heights any good, but still managing to appreciate the beautiful view of Sugar Loaf Mountain & Copacabana Beach below, without actually looking down. Weather a bit crappy today, unfortunately not quite beach weather, but enjoying just relaxing and not doing much.

Had a fab day yesterday, went to the ‘Hippy Market’ in the afternoon, then a lovely long stroll along the beautiful, sandy Ipanema Beach with my lovely man.

In the evening we had the pleasure of being entertained at a great bar called Delirium Tremens – we were delighted with the wonders of beer, with our own beer sommelier called Andrea, and 5 very different and actually quite yummy beers. What she didn’t know about beer, isn’t worth knowing. I’ve almost a converted beer drinker – almost because the beers she introduced us too were in the most part, fabulous, but not necessarily widely available in the UK. Will definitely keep my eyes open for them.

Today is cloudy, been raining overnight, but still very warm. Just chilling this morning, but hopefully doing a bit of sightseeing later – probably Sugar Loaf Mountain and Corcovado (or the ‘big Jesus’as my son keeps calling it). Can’t come to Rio and not tick them off.  Signing off now, more soon.

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
