I have a wide range of skills in design, illustration, marketing and business management. I have over 30 years experience in graphic design, providing complete design solutions for Yorkshire and UK based companies and organisations.
I set up Warmbread in May 2014 to realise my dreams and passion for design. Warmbread helps businesses succeed by providing unique branding solutions. I feel it is important to get to know a business personally, through listening to their story. This enables me to create a beautifully crafted and unique brand, which both reflects their personal style and serves as an effective marketing tool for years to come.
I have a good knowledge of advertising and marketing techniques, which I have used to promote and advertise my businesses. I also advised my clients where appropriate on marketing and developing their business. I am able to suggest marketing tools which will help the marketing of their business, for example, brochures, mail shot ideas, promotional items such as pens or special offer/voucher schemes.
I am self-motivated and disciplined. I pride myself on meeting tight deadlines, juggling the pressures of multiple projects and many masters and managing varying levels of budget! I am always prepared, where possible, to take on work, and extra hours to meet a client’s deadlines.
I always seek to deliver the highest standards of work and customer service, keeping clients informed on all aspects and the progress of their jobs at all times. I also provide them with ideas to make the most effective use of their resources and budgets.
My knowledge of the design, marketing and technology industry is kept up-to-date through reading industry magazines and attending training programmes. For the last 2 years I have visited the MacExpo exhibition in London to find out what Apple is planning for the future and what new or updated software is on the market. I am always interested in learning new techniques and developing new skills and I do regular online training courses to keep my skills up to date.
