Graphic Design and Marketing
I’m a fully qualified graphic designer and marketer and have the badges to prove it (BA Hons, ACIM DipM, QTS, HND)! I started working as a graphic designer in London, then worked as a Marketing Manager for a food company before I took a career break when my daughter was very young. I went into teaching Art, Design & Technology while she was growing up to fit around the school days and holidays.
Since starting my own graphic design business, I’ve found that many start up and small companies are struggling to afford to use a qualified graphic designer. However, they do have great ideas of their own but lack the “how to do it” knowledge.
To solve that problem, the idea for ‘Be Your Own Graphic Designer’ was born, which combines my teaching and graphic design experience, so that small businesses can take control of their own brand.
Marketing and Social Media
I’ve been in Marketing almost all my career and it’s let me travel all over the world and even live in New York for five years working for a major consumer brand – very “Sex in the City”! I’ve also done what might have been seen as the unglamorous bit too and worked in service businesses but I found those equally exciting and fun.
What every business I’ve worked with has taught me is that marketing is the life blood of a business. Making sure that you have a steady stream of customers, who love your products and you provide excellent value and service to, is what, for me, marketing is all about.
Like Sammy, when I started my own business, I found that there was loads of advice out there telling you what to do but little helping you with “how to” actually do it. This is exactly why Sammy and I are working together on ‘Be Your Own Graphic Designer’ – so we can help you with the “how”.
