Why am I a designer?Because bad design makes me CRAZY (you too?) and, therefore, I am dedicated to design excellence. Designing is more than my profession, it is my lifeblood, my happy place, my challenge and reward, and honestly a mindset I never switch off. It’s a lifelong love affair with colour, shape, texture, space, form, etc. This is the very best time in history to be a graphic designer, living, breathing, designing and growing right now in our digital revolution. The fast pace keeps me sharp and is an exhilarating ride. New design tools and techniques are plentiful, giving me more value to offer a client. I LOVE IT!
