I create marketing assets for clients across many industries including: events, education, retail, and hospitality
Hi there! I’m Helen, a freelance Integrated Creative Designer with 17 years experience and I love my job. I have been a loan wolf for along time and ready to join a pack - I am on the hunt for a collaborative and flexible role within a creative agency or creative in-house team. Please hop over to my website, its hddesignsolutions.co.uk, to view some of the projects I have been involved in.
What’s an Integrated Graphic Designer? I hear you say. It's someone who designs all the various elements of a brand, event or campaign and brings them together into a coherent whole – print, digital etc. They see the bigger picture and take a holistic approach to their work.
I create my artwork in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator; Adobe Photoshop for image manipulation and web graphics; Adobe Premiere Pro for video. So there you have it, I have my head in the Creative Cloud pretty much all the time.
My superpowers are: the ability to work on multiple projects; and swift-turnarounds. I gained my experience in both an advertising agency and a publishing house. The agency taught me the importance of quality control and developing good concepts; and the in-house role taught me efficiency and task management.
An unwavering work ethic gets me through most projects. I really enjoy my job and consider myself lucky to be able to work on a variety of projects for a number of different clients.
I adapt quickly to different brands, and ways of working. Common-sense, valuing corporate identity, getting to understand its culture and ‘personality’ and vehemently sticking to its strict brand guidelines is how I achieve this. Let’s talk. See how we mesh.
