I have become totally fascinated and obsessed with the Favela’s in Rio. Just their sheer existence amazes me, how they cling to the enormous mountains surrounding the city, how they sustain life, albeit in possibly the most simplistic & frightening manner. It’s scary to be so fascinated, but I’m compelled by this extremely alien concept. Maybe a naive fascination, possibly a dangerous one, but I can’t seem to fathom just how their populations exist on a daily basis. I’ve become obsessed with wondering who their inhabitants are, every person who passes me in the street is scrutinised. I’m probably totally wrong about where & how these people spend their daily lives, maybe they never leave the confines of their ‘comfort zone’ to venture out to where the tourists, the people who live in the incredibly enormous & numerous high rise apartments and the business people who go about their daily routines.

Having googled ‘Favelas’ I now have a few nights worth of films to get through. I think it could be hard going…

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
