I’m Claire and I’m a Graphic Designer and Illustrator from North Yorkshire, UK. I currently work full-time as a designer for one of the UK’s top greetings card companies and I also freelance in my spare time.
In my day-job as a greetings card designer, I enjoy working in many different styles on a daily basis… consequently, I’m one of those weird folk you hear about that genuinely enjoys a challenge! So, if you have one for me (a design-related one, not a navigational or DIY one – ’cause frankly, you’re on your own there, kids!), I’d be happy to oblige… for a fee obviously 😉 .
Being Yorkshire born and bred, I’m incredibly fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world! I’m a very proud Yorkshire lass as anyone who knows me will tell you. I work here, I live here and I studied BA Graphic Design here at Leeds College of Art many moons ago! So it’s fair to say I quite like it!!
I’m a part-time crazy cat lady and I’m completely animal/ nature obsessed – a fact that features quite heavily in my work… my happy place is the zoo… or anywhere in the company of something with 4 legs and a tail, really! If you live life with the question “What would David Attenborough do?”, you can’t go far wrong in my opinion!
As well as design and illustration, I love cooking and baking – primarily because I love eating (if you are in my company long enough you’ll probably be a guinea pig for whatever recipe I’ve been testing most recently)! I also have a wildly out of control addiction to homeware and so it’s fair to say I keep a close eye on developing interior design trends!
Another little fact about me is that I’m partially deaf in both ears… Say whaaaaaat?! So unless you want to repeat things about 5 times over, the easiest way to communicate with me is by the power of ‘the email’ as I’ve not yet mastered the power of telepathy, smoke signals or abstract mime. I mean, I’m happy to work on it but it’d be a work in progress, you know…
So… that’s me! If you feel like you’d *STILL* like to work with me after learning all that, please use the contact form on the appropriate page… in the immortal words of Mrs Doyle… ‘go onnnnnnnn!’ You know you want to 😉 Excited to hear from you!
