A Business Card & Packaging project for wedding photographer Sally Elvin.The Business Card needed to be simple, classy and portray the professionalism of my client. The final product ticked all those boxes and Sally was very happy with the outcome of all aspects of the project.

The packaging brief required sourcing a packaging design company who could produce a bespoke, sophisticated, professional looking box to hold a USB memory stick. The USB would be used to store the photographs for Sally’ clients. The box and USB had to reflect the high standard of Sally’s photography and represent her professionalism. I worked with Emma Edwards at Design Trifle and together we managed to design and produce a suitable box to house the USB – the results, I’m sure you will agree, ticked all the boxes.

Sourcing a USB with specific criteria proved to be quite a task, however, after much searching we came across one from Integral Memory. The whole process was quite frustrating, especially when the USB supplier sent the order back to Far East because they hadn’t been printed the details we had requested on both sides of the USB. They didn’t bother to check with us first to see if this would make a difference. The issue was eventually solved, but the order was obviously delayed and Sally was inconvenienced. I managed to negotiate a discount and some free USB’s to compensate for the poor communication & inconvenience. Fortunately Integral Memory redeemed themselves and when we finally received the finished product we were very pleased with the choice we had made. It was necessary that the USB also reflected Sally’s business in a professional manner. The final coupling of the USB and the packaging worked perfectly and were very happy with the outcome.

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
