I started freelancing as a graphic designer in 2017, I have previous corporate work as a photographer and graphic designer.

My Bachelor of Visual Arts degree (please don’t confuse that with an Arts degree!) majored in Film and Digital Art at the University of Sydney, College of the Arts, which focused on building skills using various Adobe programs along with Final Cut Pro which was industry standard at the time. The degree also explored various forms of art and incorporating them into life and designs, which I applied to my skills as a graphic designer. Since turning freelance in 2017 I’ve transformed my career into an artist while relying on B2B design and photography work.

My most recent business venture is turning my digital artworks into a colouring in book! Right now, the book seems to sell like hot cakes when customers see it in real life. It’s still very early days for the book although I see it becoming a big part of my career.

I had spent thousands on web site design with other service providers. Vanessa was able to grab the key themes very quickly. Her transparent and regular updates made both the process and product first class. Not to be underestimated was her focus on making the product user friendly. Not locking in a maintenance relationship. I will use Vanessa for all my media projects.

Vanessa is great to work with and very quick at responding to correspondence. The final work that was provided to me was exactly what I wanted, plus she added little things I had not thought about, which made the artwork even better. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I had a great experience working with Vanessa. She is very quick at responding to emails, actions requests and tasks quickly and produces very high quality work. She is excellent at understanding design briefs and working collaboratively to produce the desired result. I will definitely be coming back to Vanessa for all my future design needs , and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of working with Vanessa over three projects and can't speak highly enough of her work ethic, professionalism and 'can do' attitude. Vanessa is excellent and has helped me elevate my work to a new level. Thanks Vanessa
