The software skills I have to help your brand turn heads
Hey, I'm Steph!
Hi there! My name is Stephanie (but you can call me Steph) and I am a freelance graphic designer. From a very early age, design has been my passion - I lived it, I breathed it, and I ate and drank it too. I have been a creative soul in nearly all aspects of my life from the moment I can remember, whether it be designing and executing my 7th birthday party invitation or developing a new brand identity for a corporate client - it's in my blood.
I spent 5 years at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia (where I was born & raised) studying a Bachelor of Creative Industries majoring in Graphic Design with a minor in Advertising. I didn't think that was enough however, so I decided to enroll in a double degree (because you know - who needs a life?) with a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Marketing - which is what lead me to move across to the other side of the world. In 2016, I studied a winter semester exchange at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, and since then, North America has been home!
I have been running my freelance graphic design business since 2007, when I was a young, doe-eyed teen with a passion for creating things and living in a world of colour, art, a high speed internet connection and the non-existence of comic sans. I still am that girl today, however I do have a little more tolerance for comic sans (but if you like "Papyrus" or "Chiller" I don't think we can be friends sorry)
As well as graphic design, I also have 5+ years experience in the events and marketing industry where I was an Event Coordinator and Social Media Marketing Manager for over 25 not for profit organizations in Perth, Western Australia.
I specialize in branding, web design, social media and print & digital publishing. I am an Instagram Strategist, Adobe Specialist and a Certified WIX Partner. A huge aspect of my design regime is focusing on typography and intricate composition. I have worked with clients on different levels, ranging from individuals to small businesses to large scale corporate companies and organizations. No project is too big or too small, I love to design and whenever I get the opportunity to, I take it. I am also the creator & co-host of the podcast, The Empower Hour with Dufferin Media which is available on all major podcast platforms.
My design philosophy is to create with passion and to create with purpose. I find beauty in simplicity, and behind every design should be a story. When I am not buried behind my laptop, I am usually discovering new hiking trails, watching Gossip Girl for the 10th time or eating sushi... or froyo... or pizza... lets just say eating.
Design is on my mind 24/7 - so if you're interested in working together, brainstorming ideas or just want to say hello - drop me a line!
