I am a Senior Designer with a wide range of experience across all aspects of digital and printed design. I am a highly creative thinker – never stuck for ideas and able to produce effective, innovative design solutions. I am open minded with a positive, patient nature; always willing to learn new skills and able to fit in comfortably with established working practices.
My top strengths are insight, ideas, vision and creative design.
I graduated from the school of design at Edinburgh College of Art with a BA Hons in Visual Communication in 2009. Since then I have worked in-house with marketing and IT companies, freelanced through design agencies and consulted directly with a variety of clients. This has given me a wide range of experience across each aspect of the design process, including user research; information mapping; strategy; visual research; creating concepts; communicating logic behind ideas; developing ideas methodically through design phases; presenting design philosophies to team members and clients; reworking designs to fit revised requirements; and delivering high standards of work to tight deadlines.
Through previous work as a Project Manager, I have been responsible for overseeing every detail from start to finish, including product analysis; budget management; user testing; allocation of workloads; staff management and managing client relationships and expectations.
I am available for freelance projects and interested in full or part time work.

Philip Johnston, PJ Real Estate Limited:
'I have worked with Genevieve on a variety of projects and she has been a first class creative consultant and designer. In helping to create a brand identity and printed material she fully listened to our brief and requirements and delivered work we were delighted with. I have found her very easy to work with and would highly recommend.'
Adam Terrey, Creative Director at The Station Agency
'Gen has a rare gift, evident when you work with her, but appreciable when you look closely at her work. That is, being blessed with both a highly creative – and highly organised mind. A rare and invaluable combination. We used all these skills to administer daily operations in the agency and add great value to its creative output.
Coupled with this gift is a fantastic work ethic. I never needed to push Gen to get a consistent 110% effort on every project and task that was thrown at her.
Needless to say, we were very disappointed to lose her. If she is applying for a position with your team, I highly recommend you take the opportunity.'
Andrew Wolffe, Creative Director/Founder at Wolffe
'Genevieve is a talented illustrator who draws with a lovely combination of style and substance. She immediately got the brief and created a campaign image for us that communicates the message, has longevity and above all, looks great.'
